The Vikings are still a synonym for extraordinary abilities. Not only were they brave and courageous seamen and warriors, but also very competent forgers. 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 (named after the first Danish king) 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, Gorm is by far superior to any ordinary kitchen knife blades, and is as tough as the Vikings. The characteristically shaped hole in the blade makes the Gorm especially unique.
