Printable Product Details Page
PurposeThe wide stiff blade is strong and rigid. A stiff blade is more often used for raw beef and pork. A boning knife is used to separate raw meat from the bone, trim fat and remove silverskin.
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.
