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 combines ageless virtues which make this knife series a real masterpiece of kitchen cutlery. The choice of materials is as extraordinary as the design. Equipped with stainless 440C steel with its high edge retention and a Rockwell hardness of 58-59° HRC. The characteristically shaped hole in the blade provides excellent control while you choke forward on the handle like the professional chefs do. From an ergonomic standpoint, the Gorm sets a new standard. The handle scales are made of milled canvas Micarta with the typical linen texture.
The Larding Knife, or 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.
