Halacha - Checking the shechitah knife
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: Shalom and thank you for taking my question. Is it required that the shochet check his knife both on the fingernail and the end of the finger on the flesh? If he only checks it on the fingernail, is the shechitah just as good?
Answer: The accepted procedure today is that Shochtim only  check a knife on their nail, and not on the flesh at all.
