The bench knife is a metal rectangle about 4" X 6" with an edge on one of
the long sides and the other set into a handle. You can cut, scrape, crimp
and flatten with minor changes in wrist position. Unlike a knife, one side
of the edge is angled while the other is flat.

from a knife (messer) also referenced in other recipes?
