PurposeThe unique "Double Sharp" design combines both the "helical/spiral" and the "precision" cuts. The coarse "spiral" cut is ideal for putting an edge on a blunt (i.e. dull) knife blade. The "precision" cut (or "Continental" cut) has unbroken cuts running the length of the steel blade. In combination the two cuts help to restore a blunt edge quickly and with continued use, help to maintain the restored edge. The edge will not be as fine as that produced by a precision cut steel.
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.
