What do Trier, Wiesbaden, Münster and Lüneburg have in common? Apart from a historic city center, landmarks that are famous beyond the borders of the region and a long-standing tradition as important trade cities, they share another important aspect: These cities are the homes of excellent steelware retailers, who have built their outstanding reputation over many years by means of their extensive selection and first-rate expertise.
We harnessed their decades of experience, excellent know-how and finely honed every day sense for the requirements and needs of cooking and kitchen enthusiasts in our product development of the Boker Core series, combined with our almost 150 years of experience as a Solingen Knife Manufactory. The results is a product with dynamic lines, excellent handling and breathtaking cutting capability that earned the quality rating "recommended by leading retailers".
The solid blade slug made from a chromium-molybdenum-vanadium alloy (X50CrMoV15), perfectly suited for making premium kitchen knives, is hand-forged with Solingen craftsmanship, structurally optimized and then hardened to 58 HRC. In order to give the blade a longer service life and even finer cut, our traditional hand grind is then highly polished.
The forged bolster ensures a secure grip and protects the user from possible injuries in case of a slip. A special design feature of all knives in this series is the gently rounded spine. This makes the knife easy and pleasant to handle in any position and prevents unpleasant pressure on the hand – even if strong pressure is applied to the spine, while executing a rock chop, for instance.
The practical and perfectly proportioned handles made of synthetic complete the overall picture. The knives are highly moisture resistant and can also be used in professional restaurants without hesitation. Especially in the kitchen, hygiene has to meet the highest standards at all times.
The Peeling or Paring Knife is particularly handy and has a short blade. All smaller works in the kitchen are carried out with this Knife. The main task, as the name implies, is the paring of fruit and vegetables. It is perfectly suited for cutting along the skin.
