Boker Solingen Tirpitz Damascus
For years, many of our customers have been interested in our extraordinary collectible knife Boker Solingen Tirpitz Damascus. A piece of history comes alive. The Tirpitz, sister ship of the legendary Bismarck, was the largest battleship ever built for the German Navy. On November 12, 1944, the British Royal Air Force attacked the Tirpitz with special tallboy bombs, settling it near the shore in the shallow water. Shortly after the war, a Norwegian specialty company took interest in the specially alloyed steel of the Tirpitz, and retrieved parts of the special armor of the Tirpitz, from the Fjord. These pieces of living history are being exclusively forged by our Damascus forger to an extraordinary Damascus steel with an exciting background. The pattern “Great Pyramids,” with more than 300 layers, adorns the mighty 4″ blade, and makes this piece the highlight of any collection. The combination of the Tirpitz steel and carbon tool steels also creates an extremely rugged Damascus steel, which has a hardness of 61° HRC, and can handle any cutting task. The handle, made of high
strength AlMgSi1 aluminum (with Silicium, making it a much higher quality than standard AlMg3), is hardcoat anodized and provides a secure grip. The reversible clip allows for tip-up or tip-down carry. For the handle inlay we chose domestic walnut, which has a long history as shaft wood for German rifles due to its superior characteristics. This eye-catching inlay also features the original Tirpitz crest. This knife combines history, tradition and modern technology in a unique way, and is handmade in the Boker manufactory in Solingen, Germany. Comes complete in a presentation box, serial numbered, with a certificate of authenticity.
