    I'm not sure what you're asking exactly but integral bolsters are made from the same bar of steel as the knife, no welding is done. You have to forge them to shape.

    Im no expert, but force welding a bolster might be done and then you don't have to use the same bar of steel as the rest of the knife.
    The one thing Ive heard about force welding is that you can see where its welded on after etching.

    If the bolster was forge welded, then it couldn't properly be called 'integral'.

    Done well, it's very herd to see the join line. The damascus parer Michael Rader made for me has a forge welded bolster, and I can't tell where the weld line is.

    I think that the force is very strong with Devin.

    You guy's are nuts.

    Yes the bolsters were forge welded on. There are over 300 welds in the blade. The bolsters are not glued on, they are not pinned on, they are not soldered on, they are not tig welded on, they are an integral, cohesive part of the knife. Whether you forge weld them on, forge to shape, or upset the bolster, it is an integral bolster and any method is difficult to do.
