High Quality, European Made, Carving Knife with a Full Tang, Ergonomic Winewood Handle
Printable Product Details Page
Used to slice thin slices of cooked meat, including poultry, roasts and hams. A carving knife is generally wider than a slicing knife, but narrower than a Chef's (French) knife. The blade length required depends on the size of the cooked meat being cut.
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.
