Boker Todd Begg Mach 2 Knife Fixed Blade
Boker Knives introduces the second in the series of fixed blades designed by Todd Begg. The Boker Kiridashi was a big hit and this Mach 2 promises to be as well. It feels great. The innovative style is a single piece of 440c stainless steel that is fitted with a piece of desert ironwood right where the handle fits into your palm. There is a slot in the steel above the wood which may lighten the knife up. The blade shape is a very popular one with a wide “knob” like end. These are made in Germany by Boker Knives.

Here is the long description from Boker Knives:
Innovative fixed blade knife.
Todd Begg, knifemaker from Washington, sets up two thrilling collaborations with Boker Knives. The Boker Mach 2 is a slim yet very ergonomic fixed blade, typical of a Begg design. Just grab it, and you’ll be surprised how well the contoured handle, with its exclusive desert ironwood scales, fits in your hand. A thumb ramp with grooved notches provide a super secure grip. The spear point blade design provides great versatility, with a slightly recurved edge for very effective work, and a fine satin finish. The leather sheath comes with a clip for various carrying options. The 440C stainless blade steel provides superior edge retention. Blade length: 3 3/16″. Overall length: 7 3/8″. Blade thickness: 5/32″. Weight: 3.2 oz. Made in Solingen, Germany.
