BO130561: Boker Gorm | 6-1/8" Santoku Knife
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.

Pros: Construction, Durability, Overall Quality, Sharpenability, Design
Cons: None
Great for what it is
What it is: good solid kitchen knife with thick back that can take "throw in the drawer and forget" kind of rough handling. good enough edge retention for repeated shaving of frozen meat or thin slicing fibrous leek/rhubarb. Touch up easily with fixed edge (20 degrees steel hone). light honing rewards the user every time, enough to easily thin slices strawberries without crushing seeds against berry after honing. What it is NOT: not an Ever-sharp or ultra sharp knife with thin blade. Not a light blade. If you are looking for knife that can slice tomato paper thin, this knife is not for you. Overall: Recommended for people who likes some presence(weight) in their hand while cutting, and who likes to use honing steel to re-align the edge. Not recommended for people looking for light or thin knife, or magic blade that requires no sharpening or touch up skills.
