- I was told as an apprentice that a full bolster and rivets are a sign of a quality knife
Are 2 or 3 rivets preferred? Should the bolster be slightly or extremely past the edge?
I like this in particular the rivets part.
’When you’re out doing the occasional knife shopping, make sure to inspect the knife! Does it have rivets? Very important! If it does, go ahead inspecting the bolster! Is it full? If yes, just buy and enjoy!’
