A nice finger-guard/stop is forged into the middle, then the steel is tapered to the end of the handle, and to a paper-thinness to the tip of the blade. I can bend the tip of the blade ninety-degrees to either side and it just springs right back to straight. I am guessing this is a pre-WWI knife, because Henckel had other awards later than 1904 which are not listed on the blade. So not only is it a tool for the artist in the kitchen to use, it is a tool made by artists!
