Boker Solingen Kalashnikov Bayonet Damascus
In 1947, Mikhail Kalashnikov presented the AK-47 assault rifle he had designed to the Red Army and was able to convince the decision-makers of its’ development without delay. Only two years later, the now world famous AK-47 was officially commissioned as the 7.62mm Avtomat Kalashnikova 1947. Mikhail Kalashnikov personally visited the Boker Manufactory in Solingen in 2002 and officially presented the knife line Boker Kalashnikov to the public. More than 70 years after the AK-47 was put into service, we now present a truly extraordinary, special model of the knife line and honor, once again, his brilliant engineering performance.
The Boker Solingen Kalashnikov Bayonet Damascus is equipped with a unique Damascus blade, made of original AK-47 bayonet blades, and decorated with the signature of General Kalashnikov. The stainless Damascus, from Chad Nichols, consists of 200 layers and is forged by hand in his “Virus” pattern. It shows an unusual filigree pattern which is the result of a very controlled forging process. The blade is opened with the thumb stud and locked by a sturdy liner lock.
The handle is CNC-machined from a block of 6061-T6 aluminium and then anodized in black hardcoat. The stabilized inlays are made of local hornbeam wood reminiscent of the stock wood furniture of the famous assault rifle. They are also CNC-milled from solid wood and inserted by hand. All screws, as well as the pocket clip (tip-up/r), are also black anodized. Handmade in the Boker Knife Manufactory in Solingen. Presented in a stylish floating display, with a certificate of authenticity and individual serial number.
