This is an amazing knife, I use mine daily infact the only one i want to use. balance is good, holds an edge very well, fits great in my hand. Could not ask for a better knife, will be buying a few more very soon. Ps it is sharp enough to take your fingerread more off, I have scares to prove it lol.
What is a bolster?
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.
