    “How the knife feels in the hand was extremely important. A knife’s blade is really sharp so you have to be careful with the knife. We wanted to make sure when a consumer grips the knife, they felt secure. I also need the weight of the knife to be balanced and need to be able to grip it close to the heel of a knife, so I want a smooth, thin bolster. This design also enables it to sharpen easily.”
