BOKER 150TH ANNIVERSARY DAMASCUS SERIES
Boker knives — definitely a good reason to celebrate! And of course, Boker wants their customers to take part in that celebration. For that reason, they are presenting an anniversary series with extraordinary models. The Damascus blades of these exquisite knives are each a piece of living Boker history. In the early days of Boker, of course, there wasn't any electricity, and most machines in the factory were driven by steam. The energy was transferred by large transmission belts through the whole facility, to give power to the various machines. One of those huge transmission wheels still sits on the lawn in front of Boker's manufactory in Solingen, as a reminder of the old times. Boker took a piece of the drive shaft of this wheel and used it to forge the Anniversary Damascus for the blades of the Anniversary Damascus models, thus giving every owner the opportunity to hold a genuine piece of Boker history in their hands. This unique way of creating a one-of-a-kind blade material, as well as the huge efforts that were made, is meant as a sign of Boker's appreciation for all their customers, and for their steady support and loyalty for Boker, and for Boker knives.
Each knife in the Anniversary Damascus series is equipped with a handle scale of a material which is almost as historic as the blade — the Boker logo dates back to the huge chestnut tree that graced the yard of their first facility, and though it had been destroyed by a thunderstorm in the early 20th century, the choice of smoked chestnut wood for the handle scales still keeps the origin of their logo alive in every single knife in the series. Each knife is handmade in the Boker Manufactory in Solingen and delivered with a certificate of authenticity, and in an anniversary frame display for an attractive presentation. Each model is individually numbered and strictly limited to 150 pieces worldwide.
