Top 10 Best Granton Edge Knife Reviews 2020

Some people call a Granton Edge Knife a Hollow Edge or Fluted Edge Knife. The blade features hollowed-out dimples or grooves on one or both sides on the blade. Depending on what is being cut, these grooves will fill with juices or create pockets of air. This prevents food from sticking to the blade. On top of that, it creates less friction between the knife and the food.

Most of the Granton Edge knives on this page are similar in the way they look. Their bolster allows easy sharpening of the entire blade down to the blade heel. Good knuckle clearance gives room for use without knuckle interference. But this is where the similarities end.
