I remember making a post about knives in some thread here...
ANYWAY, personally I use Cutco knives, and their carving knife for stuff like this. All their knives are world class and stay sharp figuratively forever. Probably why they cost so bloody much.https://www.cutco.com/products/product. ... yle-slicer
All that said, I carried a ton of different pocket knives and multi tools during my time as a mechanic. Cheap ones that were almost throw away, all the way up to expensive Gerbers and Spyderco models. I got to be quite a knife aficionado. My ultimate opinion is all that really matters is that the knife has a decent handle that you can keep good grip on and maintain control of the blade. Beyond that, even the cheapest Walmart knife will do the job nicely as long as it's properly sharpened.
The ancient Egyptians carved the stones for the great pyramid (and nearly everything else) with copper tools, and got everything glass smooth. The tools were also just constantly being sharpened though.
