The Boker 2012 Annual Damascus Collectors Knife offers, with its ageless design, not only an extraordinary collector's piece, but also a high grade user's knife for everyday carry. The stainless Damascus blade of the Boker 2012 Collector's Knife, forged by hand from Chad Nichols from Mississippi, offers not only a stunning "Ladder" pattern, but also gives superior cutting capability and outstanding edge retention with its hollow grind. The clear and even design lines and the traditional style combine amazingly with the polished stainless steel bolsters and the white Micarta handle scales, where black spacers provide a beautiful contrast. Also features a sturdy lockback mechanism and lanyard hole. Handmade in the Boker Manufactory in Solingen, Germany, and strictly limited to just 999 pieces worldwide. The Boker 2012 Annual Damascus Collectors' Knife comes in a wooden presentation box with a certificate of authenticity.
