BO02BO065: Boker Plus Farkas Bushcraft
Péter Farkas from Hungary has already presented several successful models; one of the most popular features of his designs is the ergonomic handle design. The robust Boker Plus Farkas Bushcraft, with its massive blade, is no exception, scoring points as a sturdy, yet compact outdoor knife for a wide range of tasks. Fluting the tang in strategic places contributes to a secure grip, as does the swallowtail handle butt. Even large hands will find this handle secure and convenient to hold. The D2 blade has a stonewash finish and convex grind. Comes with a leather sheath.
D2 Tool Steel
With a chromium content of 12%, D2 — a tool steel — can certainly be classified as a stainless steel. Since its chromium content is right on the threshold, however, a little more care for the D2 wouldn't go amiss. As an upper-tier conventional steel, D2 offers great edge retention and stability, though sharpening it takes a little effort.

Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to Kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
Micarta is a compressed layered composite sealed within a thermosetting plastic which creates a strong, attractive material that is impervious to water.
This is a high carbon steel that is appropriate for use in hostile environments and is known for edge retention.
