Boker Solingen Tirpitz Damascus Wood 42
For years, many of our customers have been interested in our extraordinary collectible knife Boker Solingen Tirpitz Damascus Wood 42. Its popularity convinced us to develop another model featuring the historic Damascus steel. The Boker Tirpitz Damascus Wood is approximately 10mm thick with a much flatter construction. Its much more elegant lines are enhanced by the full length scales of domestic walnut. The matte wood of the contoured handle scales is CNC-milled in a three dimensional design.
The coat of arms and name of the Tirpitz takes pride on the front. The sister ship of the legendary Bismarck was the largest battleship ever commissioned by the German Navy. Right after the end of World War II, a Norwegian company sent experts to salvage the ship’s wreck off the coast of Norway, in order to make the highly alloyed steel available for civilian purposes. Norwegian divers retrieved parts of the armoring of the Tirpitz just for Boker. Our Damascus blacksmith took these pieces of living history and forged an exclusive and exceptional steel with a fascinating history. The mighty blade of hand forged Damascus steel sports the pattern “Great Pyramid” in 300 layers, which makes this knife the highlight of any collection. The combination of Tirpitz steel with carbon tool steel also makes for an extremely durable Damascus. With a Rockwell hardness of 61 to 63 HRC, it is equal to any everyday task. The blade is secured with a 1.5mm thick liner lock. With pocket clip (tip-up). Comes in a high quality transparent frame case with a certificate of authenticity, serial numbered.
Based on the Boker Solingen Tirpitz Damascus Wood, which has been very popular for years, the Tirpitz Damascus Wood 42 differs only in the omission of the thumb stud, which is replaced here by the nail nick, making the Tirpitz Damascus Wood 42 a two-handed knife. The rest of the features remain unchanged and equally provide the ultimate collector’s knife.
