This year’s Boker Annual Damascus is aimed at lovers of lightweight slipjoint pocket knives and combines the handy construction of the Boker Boxer EDC with exceptional materials. The design of the French knifemaker Raphaël Durand goes back, like many classic French pocket knives, to the traditional Navajas from the Mediterranean region. The stainless Clippoint blade is made of hand-forged damascus by Chad Nichols consists of 180 layers with a pronounced ricasso and a 90° stop.
The pleasantly contoured handle scales are made of 5500-year-old bog oak wood, which is ground three-dimensionally in demanding handwork. The stabilised wood is given a matt, almost velvety surface during fine sanding. Bog oak wood is not a tree species of its own, but oak trunks that have lain in bogs, swamps or riverbanks for centuries and were salvaged when the areas were drained. The tannic acid of the oak wood combines with the iron salts of the water over the course of a long time, making the wood exceedingly hard and giving it its dark color.
The decorative copper rivets form a colorful contrast to the dark handle scales, which is further emphasised by the liners also made of copper. The practical lanyard hole is also reinforced with a copper bushing. Handmade in the Boker Knife Manufactory in Solingen and strictly limited to 999 pieces worldwide. Supplied with a noble floating display, a certificate of authenticity and an individual serial number.
