Hollow Ground Blade

not yet rated
A knife blade with concave beveled edges created by starting midway or lower from the top of the blade and grinding or tapering each side of the blade thinner toward the bottom or cutting edge by grinding a inward curvature. As the blade is ground the slight curve (concave) grind creates the "hollow" area referenced in the blade. Produced with either a fluted pattern or a beveled pattern, a hollow grind provides a very thin and exceptionally sharp edge that can be easily sharpened when necessary. It is a type of blade that is excellent for slicing due to the sharp edge, but not for chopping activities since the higher impact of the chopping action dulls or may chip the thinner blade. Unlike the taper ground blade that is made from a single piece of metal which results in better balance and stability, the Hollow Ground Blade is not durable enough to withstand higher impact activities.
