This professional hunting and outdoor knife has an impressive blade and elegant flowing lines in its design. The concept of this piece, by Armin Stutz (from the Austrian Knife Forge "Steirer Eisen"), was created due to experiences with big game hunting in Africa and in cooperation with professional rangers, and was approved under these harsh conditions. The massive blade features an attractive two-tone satin/polished finish, and is made of N690BO steel, which is a special alloy containing cobalt, exclusively created in a collaboration between Austrian steel manufacturer Bohler and Boker. This high performance steel can handle any cutting task, and the full tang design of this piece provides extraordinary strength and stability. The Amboina wood scales, stainless steel bolsters and a lanyard hole complete this high class knife. A reliable and powerful companion for all outdoor activities. High quality leather sheath included.
Ever since Boker was founded by Heinrich Boker in 1869, Boker has considered themselves a manufacturer with historical awareness. With over a century of uninterrupted company history in Solingen, Boker feels as committed to their heritage and tradition as they are to innovation and modern technology. The extremely versatile model range of the Solingen manufactory underlines this business philosophy. Boker Mexico was founded in 1865 by Robert Boker, Heinrich's cousin. The company is still owned by the Boker family, now in its 4th generation. On occasion of the 150th anniversary of Boker Mexico, they obtained access to some very interesting documents, of which they had previously not been aware, and which placed the history of the Boker brand in a new light. Back in Solingen, Boker immediately consulted historians from the Bergisches Land and after some calculation and verification found out that the Boker family first registered the coat of arms with the famous tree as "private brand" in 1674. This historic coat of arms features a green tree on silver field at the shore of a blue river. They see this as a direct reference to the whetstones which were water-powered, even then. Thus were able to prove that the history of the Boker Tree is at least 343 years old (as of 2017)! Of course, Boker took this discovery as an occasion to design a special limited edition to celebrate the year of the trademark registration appropriately. Boker chose Amboina root wood for the uniform scales of these models, one of the most popular wood types. The selection of the models include classics as well as innovative models in more recent history. Each knife is strictly limited to 343 pieces worldwide and comes with a certificate and individual serial number.
