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!

Boker Leo Damascus Letter Opener Damascus Steel Blade
This is a crazy offering from Boker. The real story is – and this is obvious if you look closely at this item, they cut the blades for their knives out of a sheet of the damascus steel and the trimming looks a lot like these openers! So, they grind in an edge and come up with these great letter openers. They come with a leather sleeve and in a great presentation box with certificate. We want to keep a lot of them here at www.knifecenter.com

Chris Reeve Mnandi Damascus Blade Mammoth Ivory Handle
This is a really beautiful knife! Every year at a trade show, we order some of the really elegant knives that Chris Reeve shows. We snagged a Mnandi that is as gorgeous as any knife we have seen. This fossilized mammoth ivory has an incredible “earthy” coloring with lots going on in the pattern. Then, Chris put a blue sapphire in the pivot pin area surrounded by some amazing metal work. The blade is Devon Thomas Ladder Pattern Damascus. This folder really has it all! Plus, Chris warranties his work forever. A truly one-of-a-kind item. It could be yours!

Boker damascus blade knives have been really popular for many years here at the Knife Center. Boker does the best job of any production knife company. Now, they are entering the “custom world.” Boker Leo-Damascus is incredible. With steel taken from the gun barrel of a military tank, the blade has 600 layers of steel in a beautiful pattern. This fixed blade is awesome and shows Boker’s latest tendency towards custom level products from Germany. These are highly collectible and limited in production. Very few are allocated to the US market.

Chris Reeve Large Sebenzas with Devon Thomas Stainless Ladder pattern Damascus
Chris Reeve Sebenzas have been call the finest “mid-tech” folders ever made. “Mid-tech” refers to knives that are not quite custom because more than one person has a hand in making them and they are not really production knives because there is not a massive assembly line process involved. If you combine that with the incomparable Devon Thomas stainless Damascus steel that is in these blades as well as the great, unique handle designs, you have a collectible that will hold its value forever! Of course, Chris Reeve stands behind his products always and will always recondition one of his knives if you send it in to him.
A few words about the Damascus in these folders: Devon Thomas is recognized as, perhaps, the finest Damascus maker in the world. Most Damascus is made from 2 types of carbon steel, but Chris decided to put super premium stainless Damascus on these. The pattern is swirled tightly to give a ladder pattern and the swirls are so tight that the blade has a chatoyance or play of light like a tigers eye stone.

Bear and Son Gold Rush Bowies
Ahhh…the long road of the old Western Bowie. First it was made by Western States Cutlery, and then Coleman-Western, then it was a Camillus product, now it has made its home with the fine folks at Bear & Son Cutlery. Still made in the USA-Jacksonville, Alabama to be specific-this is a Bowie that has stood the test of time. For their introduction of it into their line they have produced a standard model as well as one with a beautiful ladder damascus blade.

This is the prettiest Chive we have seen with gorgeous layered Damascus steel blade in black and silver. The damascus leek is generally hard to get and we bet these will also go quickly.
