For the extraordinary blades of our Boker Superior Damascus Kitchen Knives, a four band Torsion Damascus with a separately forged Damascus cutting edge is being used for the first time, forged exclusively for Boker. This four-sided Damascus band is twisted 15 times in itself, to create a unique pattern of the 300 layers of Torsion Damascus. In our Boker Knife Manufactory in Solingen, Germany, the blanks are hand made into a complete knife using more than 150 working steps. This technique of Damascus fabrication originated in Europe and was used in the Middle Ages to create high performance sword blades for nobility. The handle is framed by two Damascus bolsters and a Damascus end cap, both manufactured of 300 layers of stainless steel Damascus. The handles are individually hand fitted to the blade, and provide a visual presentation worthy of a piece of art. For the handle, we use African Grenadill wood. The weight of this certified imported Grenadill wood provides an excellent balance to the knife. With its high content of oil, it is naturally moisture resistant. The Boker Damascus Superior unites history and the highest forging process with a fascinating look and feel, serving as the ultimate masterpiece for the passionate chef. Each knife is a work of art, individually serialized, and comes with a certificate of authenticity and maintenance instructions. Wooden gift box included.
The Utility Knife is a very handy mixture of the Chef's Knife and the Paring Knife. The most common application of the Utility Knife in the kitchen is the processing of fruits and vegetables, which can be both peeled and cut. But even smaller pieces of fish and meat can be cut easily. Since the Knife, which is sharpened on both sides, is very frequently used, it shouldn't be missing in any kitchen.
