The extraordinary blade of our new Damascus chef's knife, Superior, is made of a four-band Torsion Damascus and a separately forged Damascus cutting edge, forged exclusively for Boker. This four-sided Damascus band is twisted 15 times in itself, to create a unique pattern of the 300 layers of Torsion Damascus. In our Boker knife manufactory in Solingen, Germany, the blanks are hand made into a complete knife using more than 150 working steps. This technique of Damascus fabrication originated in Europe and was used in the Middle Ages to create high performance sword blades for nobility. The handle is framed by two Damascus bolsters and a Damascus end cap, both manufactured of 300 layers of stainless steel Damascus. The handles are individually hand fitted to the blade, and provide a visual presentation worthy of a piece of art. For the handle, we use African Grenadill wood. The weight of this Grenadill wood provides an excellent balance to the knife. With its high content of oil, it is naturally moisture resistant. The Boker Damascus Superior unites history and the highest forging process with a fascinating look and feel, serving as the ultimate masterpiece for the passionate chef. Each knife is a work of art, individually serialized, and comes with a certificate of authenticity and maintenance instructions. Wooden gift box included. Blade length: 8 5/8". Overall length: 13 1/2". Weight: 7.1 oz.
The Premium Brand: The famous knives with the tree-brand are manufactured in the German blade-city since 1869. Since then, no knife left our production without this sign of quality. The history of Boker has been affected by eventful times, but two things remained: our passion and enthusiasm for extraordinary knives.
