Manufacturing Differences

A forged knife is made of a single bar of steel, which is heated and then pounded into shape, sometimes by a specially trained craftsman, sometimes by machine. The alternative is a stamped knife, in which the blade is "stamped" or cut out from a large sheet of steel, then is honed and heat-treated for durability. A forged knife is typically heavier by several ounces than a stamped knife.

Features of Forged Knives

An easy way to identify a forged knife is to look for a bolster , a wider lip on the end of the blade where it meets the handle. More than anything, the bolster helps balance the blade by adding weight near the center of the knife.

Forged knives also usually have a full or partial tang, which is an extension of the metal blade that reaches into the handle. If the handle of a knife has metal rivets, or if you can see the metal along the edge of the handle, that's a good indication that the knife has a tang, which is a sign of quality and durability and helps with the balance of the knife.

The Quality Question

The process of making a forged knife is usually more expensive and time- and labor-intensive than making a stamped knife, so it's often pricier. It used to be that forging almost always meant that knife was better-quality and more comfortable and efficient to use.

POM

Polyoxymethelene (POM), has unique properties that make it ideal for knife handles. It can withstand virtually all solvents and has a high melting point. This means that it can be boiled and fully sanitized to meet all health and safety requirements. Under extremely high heat and pressure, the raw POM material and handle rivets are attached to the blade tang to create a secure bond between the blade and the handle. As a result, there are no gaps between the handle and the blade resulting in a perfect hygienic bond.
