    Yeah I agree totally about the finger guard, but when I'm talking bolsters I mean like integrals on Bill Burke, Rader, and Shigefusa Yo's.

    Yeah. Finger guards suck. I guess that what they're called when the bolster go's to the heel like some wustofs. Only good for opening cans. But +1 on burke's, Raders's, ect. There are plenty of bolster that I don't think effect sharpening. Although I do prefer wa handles.

    I don't really consider those bolsters, and they certainly aren't a problem.

    Well technically they are bolsters.

    And regarding bolsters/"finger guard" that run the height of the knife, if you learn how to deal with them in sharpening they're not as big a pain as you lead on.

    I know exactly how to deal with them, and they are still a pain.

    I have to agree. I don't like them. I couldn't imagine buying a knife with a finger guard. I don't really see the purpose.
