Choice of groove (Hi)
A blade can be with or without grooves (see below). With grooves (Hi / Bohi), the blade has a rain on each side which allows to lighten it and to make it more manageable (recess of material). However, this shrinkage of material makes the sides (Ji) less thick, which reduces the solidity of the structure, the blade can then buckle in the event of a powerful impact placed involuntarily on the side.
