So I did a search and came up with zilch...but I didn’t go all the way down the rabbit hole. I apologize if this has been beaten to death (and for the three cliche/idioms I just used) but I wonder how many of you have dropped a knife with bolsters and felt the scales have been saved by the bolster taking the brunt of the impact? Maybe a silly question but I gotta ask. I have dropped knives and have had a shield or two scramble across the floor as a result but do bolsters protect delicate covers - mammoth/bone etc?
