Knife rubs on forefinger while chopping

annazianna | Oct 18, 201808:55 PM     16

Hi, I have a Wusthof ikon santoku which I love and use all the time, but the only thing I don't love about it is how it often rubs a bit on the lower portion of my forefinger while I use it, in a way that is sometimes a little bit uncomfortable. I have previously used a Global chef's knife which had the same problem but in a much worse way. Is the problem likely to be something to do with the way I'm holding the knife, or is it something to do perhaps with the fact that neither of them have a full bolster (Global has no bolster, the ikon santoku has a half bolster)? Or something else? Happy to hear some suggestions as to what to do.
