Danish design and Solingen, Germany manufacture…you know it is going to be a beautiful product. Beautiful is the perfect word to describe the Gorm series of kitchen knives from Boker and custom knifemaker Jesper Voxnaes. The design is innovative, and as functional as it is striking in appearance. The steel is 440C and the handles are milled Micarta, giving you a very durable tool all the way round. Even the block is like nothing else on the market.

More information from Boker:
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.
