Qualities of a Perfect Knife
From the tip of the edge to the heel, the knife must be super sharp and smooth enough to make a clean and quick cut. The line of the blade and the quality of the steel is another major factor in the sharpness of the blade.
Before choosing a handle made of wood, metal, or micarta, make sure that the height of the handle is comfortable enough to make your knuckles safe and that the handle of the knife should not be slippery when wet.
A knife bolster or shank is the thick metallic joint between the handle and the knife blade. It needs to be strong to add extra strength and stability to the knife. However, certain special types of knives did not have a bolster at all.
