Here is Boker’s sales information:
Viva la Revolution! The rebellion against the establishment in the world of knives. Revolutionary design and innovative construction are the special features of this completely new knife concept. Design, research and development were carried out by Dr. Christoph Strasser and Dr. Peter Judmaier from the Technical University of Vienna, Austria. The knife features the new mechanism, Plate Lock, which is a unique and innovative way to quickly open the blade. Austrian knifemaker Armin Stutz, from Steirer Eisen, built the first prototypes and brought this new concept to life. Now the knife is solely produced by Boker in Solingen, Germany. The handle scales are CNC-milled stainless steel, and the ergonomical design provides a comfortable and secure grip that fits perfectly in the hand. The uniquely curved blade is made of N690BO, which is a special alloy containing cobalt, and provides smooth movement on the bronze washers. N690BO blade steel was developed in cooperation between Bohler (the Austrian steel company) and Boker Solingen, and offers top performance in all cutting tasks. Corresponding with the overall design of the knife, the sliding safety is elegantly integrated into the handle design, is ambidextrous, and was engineered by the Boker R & D team in Solingen, Germany. The tip-up clip allows convenient pocket carry. Not only does this knife make an ideal EDC, it is also a must-have for every true collector. Blade length: 3 1/4″. Overall length: 7 3/4″. Weight: 4.9 oz. Made in Solingen, Germany.
