Purpose:A fine Honing Steel can be used to maintain the cutting edge of a knife. A few strokes on either side of the blade, every time the knife is used will maintain the sharpness and ensure best cutting performance. This steel is highly recommended for use on professional knives that are consistently well maintained.
Care Instructions Carefully hand wash and dry immediately after use, do not place in a dishwasher.
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.
