Named after the first Danish king, the Gorm Chef Knife from Boker features a 7.88" 440C stainless steel blade and a black canvas Micarta handle. Designed by renowned Denmark knifemaker Jesper Voxnaes and handmade in the Boker factory in Solingen, Germany, the home of high quality blades, the Gorm combines ageless virtues which make this knife series a 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.
