Description
BO130563SET: Boker Gorm | Gorm Block Set | Black
Boker

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

The Boker Gorm.


Complete set of six knives, one of each size, from the Boker Gorm Series, and the Gorm knife block.

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.

Worth the Investment!
I have been a serious home cook for 25 years, and finally treated myself to some high quality knives. These knives will change how you feel about being in the kitchen. I love to prep, cook, (and even) clean up, and now I love it even more! The knives feel great in your hand, glide through anything with precision, and look fantastic on the counter. They are boxed beautifully, and shipping was lightning fast. Competely and totally worth the investment.

Pros: Overall Quality, Design, Sharpenability, Sharpness, Material Quality, Construction
Cons: None
Excellent knife set
Good product. To be honest I expected 7 knives (as the product is described as '7 piece') instead of 6 knives and a bit of wood to which they stick with magnets. Editer's note: This is a common convention with kitchen knife block sets. The knife block is considered one of the pieces of the set.
