Printable Product Details Page
Also known as a French or Cook's knife, the blade is curved to allow a rocking motion during usage to get a more precise cut. This knife is the all purpose, "worker knife" in the kitchen, and is used for a variety of slicing, chopping, dicing and mincing tasks. The 9" long blade has become very popular in recent years, as both professional and hobby chef's alike find it a more ideal length for a greater number of cutting tasks.
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 “one piece fully forged” knife.
