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.
A knife that is also becoming increasingly popular in Europe is the Santoku. It is originally a Japanese blade shape for an all-purpose knife. Translated its name means “The three virtues”, it is equally suitable for meat, fish and vegetables. The wide blade makes the Santoku particularly easy to handle.
Please note – as a natural material, there may be shade and pattern variations in the timber handles. Each one is unique. Care of wooden items- Do not place in dishwasher. Hand wash and dry promptly, and keep oiled with a food grade oil or board cream.
NOTE: Carbon steel blades are the easiest to sharpen and have good edge retention but need a little more care. Keep clean, dry and lightly oiled to prevent any surface rust, a patina will develop over time which will make them more corrosion resistant.
