Boker is one of the foremost cutlery houses in Europe. They are also one of the most respected cutlery houses in the world. This knife is part of their Magnum
line - highly innovative - even to the point of trying production facilities outside of Europe.
This knife is made from stainless Damascus steel forged in China to a beautiful "Galaxy" pattern Damascus - containing both bird's eye and wave patterns.
Forged and layered Damascus Steel is known from Japan to Syria as the best steel for knife and sword blades. Layers of hard and softer stainless steel are forged together to produce the steel for this wonderful Executive single-blade lockback folder. Beautiful and distinctively-Damascus patterns on the blade are produced by acid etching after forging. Damascus blades got their name because the patterns on the steel resembled the patterns in the damask cloth also being made in Damascus. (When you look at a Damascus blade under a microscope, you see tiny saw-tooth carbides, which allow the blade to cut - even when it feels dull to the touch!)
The overall length of this distinctive folder is 3 1/4 inches (closed). It has a very handy-size single clip-point blade that is 2 1/4 inches long. Gracefully curved stainless steel bolsters and liner make this both a beautiful carry, as well as a very tough little knife! Shown with Fossil Walrus Ivory - Light With Some Crystalline. This little treasure will become one of your favorite companions!
