Flat Ground Blade  
The type of blade with a straight "V" cut ground into the steel edge. Varying in depth, the Flat Ground Blade can be made with only as very slight "V" cut or a longer cut that tapers slightly from higher up on the blade and extends downward toward the cutting edge. Knives with a flat grind can be used for cutting as well as chopping activities since the blade is generally very stable.
