Boker 140 Anniversary Series
We now have three knives from this 140th anniversary series. The Camp knife detailed below is our favorite so far.
Sometimes we get items in that I think are just plain cool. These Camp Knives from Boker are just that. They were some of the earliest models offered by Boker way back in the 19th century. Similar to Swiss Army style, they had multiple blades and functions. The handles are Chestnut wood and they come with a great leather sheath and watch fob type chain. In honor of their 140th year anniversary, Boker is releasing a different classic model every month.
Boker’s description follows:
The January Edition of Boker’s 140-year Anniversary features our legendary Camp Knife. This classical multi-blade pocket knife was initially manufactured in 1869, the year Boker Treebrand was established in Solingen. To honor this event and Boker’s longevity, we gave this piece authentic flamed chestnut scales, for we owe to this tree, the origin of Boker’s Treebrand logo. Limited to 1,869 pieces (to honor the year of Boker’s company founding). Delivered with a chain, high quality leather pouch and special anniversary packaging. Blade steel is 4034 stainless. Closed length 3 5/8″. Blade length 2 1/2″ and 1 3/4″. Weight 3.5 oz.
