In a very short time, our new kitchen knife series Boker Patina develops a patina through touching acidic foods, which is not at all a flaw. On the contrary, the dark color that is created through oxidation when the blade touches foods and water serves as a protective layer and increased resistance to external influences. The fine structure of non-stainless O1 carbon steel combined with the thin-edged grind ensure excellent edge retention and superior cutting properties. Quality is not just a matter of the used materials but also of the production process. Solingen die-forged and processed by hand, each knife is absolutely unique. The composition of the Boker Patina Series is completed with brass rivets and exquisite handle scales of stabilized curly birch encasing the full tang. This exclusive, hand-selected handle material offers a vibrant flame-like pattern similar to the finest burl woods. The chef’s knife or kitchen knife is one of the most important kitchen tools and a must-have basic. It has a slightly wider and longer blade than the utility knife. The slim tip is perfect for cutting onions or smaller vegetables. Thanks to its length, it is also an excellent meat knife. Larger vegetables can also be processed with speed and ease.
