Parts of a Knife?


A knife is pretty basic and does not contain many parts. Beginning at the end that you hold closest to you is the butt. Rivets and scales hold the butt to the tang. The tang is the piece of metal that flows through the end part of the knife. The bolster area connects the tang to the base of the knife. Next is the heel, which is the widest part of the knife. The unsharp top is the spine. The edge is the sharp section that you cut with followed by the tip and point.
