New Damascus from Boker Plus
Boker Plus has long been known as the brand the Boker of Solingen offers with the innovative designs that they can offer at reasonable prices because they’re made in Taiwan or China. They keep getting better and better at producing pocket knives and hunting knives that are world class in quality and materials and still reasonably priced. These two new offerings in Damascus steel are a case in point. The traditional folder has all the design points from Boker’s Solingen made Optima series and their lockback series with the curved bolsters. They have done the blades as well as the bolsters is beautiful Damascus and the knife makes a gorgeous folding lockback at an incredible price. The Damascus Cuisine folding pocketknife is equally elegant as an all Damascus handle contains both a long pen blade and a fork entirely made of the elegant layered steel. Personally, I don’t care who made these pocket knives, they are beautifully made and will be a real keepsake for anyone who owns one.

Info on the Traditional Folder:
This Boker Plus Stag Damascus knife is the traditional knife with serious upgrades in style. The look is reminiscent of the Boker Optima or Lockback series but these are slightly smaller. The pocketknife impresses with its intricate, 71-layer Damascus steel blade and Damascus bolsters with a fine grain. The perfectly fitted scales of genuine stag add a rugged touch. The extremely smooth action of the blade and precise locking mechanism prove the high quality standard of the Boker Plus Series. We have seen few knives at the Knifecenter.com company that impress more that these beautiful folders. They are a lot of knife for the money.

Info on the Cuisine Folder:
The workmanship in these folding Hobo style knives if fantastic. The damascus patterns are beautiful and the fit and finish of the item in general is superb. They are made in China, but don’t let that make you think they are not quality. These have the look, feel, walk and talk of a quality piece and some craftsman had to do the work. The screws in the handle are Torx type.
Boker says, “The perfect piece for a stylish snack on the go! The blade, fork and handle are made of 37-layer Damascus steel, for that unique style. Fold it up for easy carry. Make your friends jealous with this exquisite tableware!”
