Add-on’s are materials added to a basic handle that adds to it’s uniqueness, as well as it’s final price.
Wildfire Cutlery offers clients the basic ‘default’ carbon steel kitchen knife, with brass bolsters and in stock hardwood handles.
see photo of steak knives just below.
Add-on’s add to the cost of this basic ‘default’ price, with different materials and techniques. See most of these choices below.
Bolsters are generally metal and are between the blade and the wood, to protect the wood’s end grain from absorbing water.
I use metal bolsters of brass, copper, stainless all 3/8″ x 1/2″. Brass is my default bolster.
Copper and stainless are considered an add-on, and cost is extra.
