Boker

The Vikings impressed us when we were kids. Obviously they still inspire us today...

The Boker Gorm.


Today, the Vikings are still a synonym for extraordinary abilities. Not only were they brave and courageous seamen and warriors, but also very competent forgers. Contrary to the Japanese tradition, the high end Northern blades were not given from generation to generation as a heritage, but were lost for posterity due to their destination as burial objects in the sea - or fire burials when the owner passed away.

Designed by the renowned knifemaker Jesper Voxnaes from Denmark, the homeland of the Vikings, and handmade in the Boker Manufactory in Solingen, Germany, the home of high quality blades, the Gorm (named after the first Danish king) combines ageless virtues which make this knife series a real masterpiece of kitchen cutlery.

The choice of materials is as extraordinary as the design. Equipped with stainless 440C steel with its high edge retention and a Rockwell hardness of 58-59° HRC, Gorm is by far superior to any ordinary kitchen knife blades, and is as tough as the Vikings.

The characteristically shaped hole in the blade makes the Gorm especially unique. But this is not only a design feature, it also provides a functional benefit - it works as a "tactile response point," which provides excellent control while you "choke forward" on the handle like the professional chefs do.

From an ergonomic standpoint, the Gorm sets a new standard. The specially shaped handle is perfect for long and extended work, with a comfortable grip. Furthermore, it is impossible to slide forward and hurt yourself on the cutting edge. The handle scales are made of milled canvas Micarta with the typical linen texture, which is not only very robust, but also gives a very secure grip. The grip gets even better when the knife or hands are wet.

Every Gorm knife is an expression of the finest kitchen culture. For that, you get your personal Gorm knife delivered in an attractive gift box, with an individual serial number.

Very Versatile Utility Knife!
This size knife is probably one of the most used for everyday chores in the kitchen. This is one of the best designs for a utility knife. It has the typical length and width, but goes the extra yard when it comes to design. The ergos and blade geometries make it super versatile. It is great for slicing, dicing and trimming, but can also be used as a small chef in a pinch due to the way the blade sweeps below the handle. The handle shape is comfortable and the little hole on the blade near the handle is useful if you choke up on the blade with your index finger and thumb. This one is gonna get a ton of use in my kitchen...
