However, it's indicative of a forged German blade in that it is quite heavy with a bolster and more conservative bevel. The bolster has a swept shape that is somewhat comfortable for a pinch grip, but does not allow you grip as far up as you would like. I think this comes down to personal preference, though. However, because of the bolster, this knife is longer in hand that a bolsterless knife will be and can be unwieldy at times. Also, for a 10‚ÄĚ, it is not terribly wide and you have to be careful with your grip. While the heavier bevel does make is less geared towards quick and very clean fine work, it makes up for it brute strength and durability. For that, this knife will always have a place in my roll.
