Item #: 206-NE-POM SET1UPC: 7-76847-21234-9Knife Block with Full Tang POM Ergo Plus™ Series Knives
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 poorer in quality compared to a â€śone piece fully forgedâ€ť knife.
