Boker Mokume Damascus 150 Layer Damascus Steel Blade
This Boker Knife is a real beauty. We love Boker Knives’ Damascus products and carry all we can get, but this one adds the beauty of the Mokume process on the bolster. The Mokume process is a “marriage of metals” with nickel, brass and copper being layered and the result is really striking. The picture doesn’t do it justice as the layers are more pronounced to the eye. The blade is Devin Thomas damascus using Devin’s own “Raindrop” pattern. The handle is a beautiful exotic wood. Phew- this is a great, limited edition Boker pocketknife!
Here is the information from Boker:
