Boker Cronidur Lockback Folding Knife
Boker 2000 series is a classic. Boker produces them in Germany and has released this new model with a high tech steel. This is the first knife to have this Cronidur steel.
Here is the info from Boker Knives:
The Boker Cronidur 30 lockback folding knife is the latest of the premium steels coming out of the space shuttle program and Boker is the first to have it available to the sporting knives industry. The Boker Cronidur 30 lockback folding knife was developed for use in the aircraft and aerospace applications, where component durability, reliability and long life are a must. The Boker Cronidur 30 is superior in corrosion resistance to 440C stainless steel. Large carbides evident in other high grade steels do not exist in Cronidur 30. Instead, there is a homogenous structure of finely dispersed carbon nitrides. With a Rockwell hardness of 58 and the blade composition needed, these blades will sharpen and hold an edge unlike any other steel currently available. Boker’s classic lockback hunting knife, featuring the Cronidur 30 steel, with elegant Grenadill wood handles are crafted with finger grooves and palm swell to fit the hand perfectly while providing sure control. Includes leather sheath, model 090033. Blade length 3 1/8″. Overall length 7 1/4″. Weight 5.6 oz. Made in Solingen, Germany.
