Our Boker Saga chef’s knife series – handcrafted by our manufactory in Solingen – raises the bar and brings the topic of “cutting in the kitchen” to a new level. Our decades of experience in the outdoor knife world coupled with the ingenuity and creativity of Danish knifemaker Jesper Voxnæs were incorporated into the concept and design of Saga in an effort to achieve a new level of performance in terms of ergonomics and cutting technology. The carefully orchestrated transfer of this joint know-how into the culinary field is proof that working with Boker Saga will be an entirely unique experience. The softly swung grips are fabricated from exclusive certified imported grendadille wood. With its high hardness and density, grenadille wood is a fixture in the European wood instrument making field. The successful ergonomics already become apparent when the Boker Sage knife series is first handled: every curve, every bend in the line nestles itself into place on the hand, conveying absolute control and an exceptional cutting experience. The swallow-tail-shaped flare of the pommel on the larger models enhances grip security. Boker Saga owes its high strength to the full-tang design, which extends over the full length of the knife (in the same manner as on many hunting knives) from the blade tip to the pommel. The optimized cutting performance is not only guaranteed by the full flat grind of the blade with stonewash finish, but also by selecting 440C as the blade steel, which far surpasses the edge-holding and corrosion-resistance of conventional chef’s knife steels. This surface finish is achieved in a specialized grinding process and is characterized by outstanding gliding properties through the cutting material, thus enhancing the already superior cutting performance. In addition, the micro-structure of the stonewash finish is extremely scratch-resistant, since these are typically visually absorbed by the texture. A special note is achieved by the large hollow rivets, the unmistakable mark of Jesper Voxnæs.
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.
