Found here in its original box, it's a fully hand-forged carving/slicing knife with stag handles and its matching chef's fork, found in superb condition and fully capable of showing you what the RIGHT knives can do for you at the table or in the kitchen. In short, in has everything going for it one could hope, and then some. While Boker has always been a company far better known for their pocket knives and hunting knives, their outstanding cutlery for chefs is among the finest ever made in Germany. The blade of this knife shines like stainless steel but it is fine virgin carbon steel, capable of taking the finest possible edge and being easy to maintain.
In fact, it is RAZOR sharp right now, having been given a professionally applied edge for the purpose of this sale and you could now shave your arm with it. As you can clearly see in the photos, it has been hafted with the finest sambar stag over its full and tapered tang--finely detailed and beautifully preserved. Handles are exquisite, set like jewels between the knife's integral bolster and pommel. The balance and feel of cutlery like this is unmatched.
Also very nice about this knife is its modest size you needn't wield a cutlass at Thanksgiving! , with the knife measuring 9.5" long with 5-3/8" yatagan-style blade. The fork is also a work of the cutler's art, measuring 7-5/8 long and strong enough to boss around the largest rib roast, turkey or to finesse some scallops in saute. Considering that most chefs use their forks almost as much as their chef knives, you'll want to have the very best, and this is exactly that.
Of course, as highly collectible as this set is, it would be an utter pity not to use it, in the kitchen as well as at the table. Solingen steel of this era was the best in the world, and using it you'll instantly come to recognize that it wasn''t just made to be seen but to be used, with performance that far surpasses even the most expensive cutlery available in stores today. You'll love it for use or display, and will rightly come to think of this set as an heirloom.
