Shochets (kosher slaughterers) like Naftali “Naf” Hanau use special knives that according to Jewish law he must keep extraordinarily sharp. The knives are flat on top, not pointed. The animal’s neck must be sliced cleanly in one continuous motion during shechita (slaughter). Gouging the neck would render the meat non-kosher. (Photo by Judah Ari Gross/News21)
