Printable Product Details Page
PurposeThis mid-sized knife is used for miscellaneous, light cutting tasks. The blade is generally 5 - 7" long, in between a paring knife and a chef's knife.
It's the raised thick part between the blade and the handle, which usually distinguishes the knife as fully forged.
The bolster acts as a guard providing safety balance, sturdiness, and comfort.
Beware of companies that manufacture knives with an imitation bolster as these knives are invariably cheaper in quality compared against a “one piece fully forged” knife.
