Since the 14th century, the so-called Kotten- farm cottage – have shaped the history of Solingen, the city of blades. The massive grinding stones were driven by pure water power and the world-famous blades were sharpened by hand. The chef’s knife series Boker Cottage-Craft impressively continues the heritage of this traditional craftsmanship and convinces with a carefully chosen choice of classic materials. Particularly noteworthy is the use of the non-stainless carbon steel C75, which forms the typical blue-grey patina after only a short period of use. The domestic plum wood used for the handle scales is hard, dense and fine-pored, shows an even structure and a striking colour spectrum. Following the centuries-old tradition of knife manufacturing in Solingen, the handle scales are mounted on the continuous tang of the blade with solid brass rivets.
The Chef’s knife is one of the most important knives in the kitchen and is part of the basic equipment. It has a slightly wider and longer blade than the all-purpose knife. The slim tip is perfect for cutting onions or small vegetables. Thanks to its length, it can also be used as a meat knife. It can also be used for large vegetables.
