For me a filet knife works best.

Yup -- my chef knife gets the most work, but a fillet or boning knife with a long, thin blade (I like the flexible kind) comes next.

Whole or half? If whole, you'll need to cut through the wing knuckle. Still, I think paring knife.

Hi,

I've a Forschner (sp?) filet knife that I got years ago from a local butcher. Well sharpened, that puppy's perfect for the task.

a 6" boner is good but a 7" boner is even better.
