Re: Are forged knives better than stamped knives?

The main advantage to forging to shape is that the bladesmith wastes less steel by forging than by stock removal alone. This was more important in times past when quality steel was scarce, and I believe is one of the reasons why many traditional Japanese knives are bi-metal rather than honyaki
