Forged's Intense series has a beautiful combination of appearance. The striking hammered look is minimal. Although the knife tends to look and feel like a traditional kitchen knife, it does have those subtle forged accents that are so characteristic of Forged. In this series, the crop is finished closed and beautifully polished. The way of forging is exactly the same as with the other series, only the blade is polished considerably more. These special knives are a real eye-catcher, but in a slightly more subtle way than the other series.
