Item #: 52053-250LH
High Quality, European Made, Slicing Knife, Scalloped Blade with a Full Tang, Ergonomic Winewood Handle
Printable Product Details Page
A scalloped or wavy edge allows the blade to go through surfaces that are firm on the outside but soft on the inside. Ideal for cutting tomatoes, hard-boiled eggs, types of breads that are crusty on the outside and soft on the inside.
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.
