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 beautifully patterned and perfectly proportioned walnut handles round out the cohesive and appealing look.
The Chef's Knife is one of the most important knives in the kitchen and belongs to the basic equipment. It has a slightly wider and longer blade than the Utility Knife. The slim tip is also suitable for cutting onions or small vegetables. Thanks to its length it can also be used as a meat knife. It is also easy to process large vegetables.
"I'm particularly impressed with the absolute focus on functionality in the Boker Core kitchen knife series. The design is very pleasing – not too elaborate – and has a clean and flush connection of the forged bolster and the walnut handle, which also meets our hygiene requirements."
Jörg Lamskemper, Head of the Craft Guild Messerschmiede-Innung Münster
"Domestic wood types like the walnut used in this series are becoming more and more popular and can be found in many trendy kitchen accessories. We support the use of local materials and products that are still made with traditional Solingen craftsmanship."
Oliver Gayer, Head of the Craft Guild Messerschmiede-Innung Nordbayern
