German Böker "Trench" Knife Grabendolch
- Made in Solingen / Germany -
During the positional war during the First World War and the resulting trench warfare, many of the insufficiently equipped soldiers developed auxiliary weapons, which were manufactured in field forges and workshops on and behind the front. In the course of the battles, however, it became clear that the soldiers' equipment and armament did not meet the requirements of this particular fighting style. In 1915 Boker was therefore commissioned by the Ministry of War to develop a compact combat knife that was ideally suited for precisely this purpose. The true-to-the-original Boker Trench Knive also has a stainless steel blade made of C75. This carbon steel with an enormous edge retention requires appropriate care today as it did then. The massive stainless steel crossguard, the old official tang stamp on the blade, the local ribbed wood handle and the authentic sheath made of high-quality leather are also part of the original equipment. The knives are marked with a serial number.

Additional informations about C75 steel:
C75 is a classic non-stainless carbon steel we use for special projects in our manufacture in Solingen. Carbon steel soon develops its typical blue-gray patina that is not a flaw but a natural property of the material.

Additional informations about "Steirer Eisen and "Armin Stütz":
The Austrian Armin Stütz began manufacturing knives in 1984 and founded the blacksmith Steirer Eisen in 1996. Since this time, knives and swords have been produced in pure manual work, initially, in particular, fixed knives, but for a number of years also increasingly folding knives for a wide range of applications. In the meantime, Steirer Eisen is Austria\'s largest blacksmith.
This stainless steel blade consists of a chisel tip and a seat belt cutter. A cutout in the blade allows for three different 6-sided wrenches, in 3 different sizes. The pocket clip accommodates left-handed and right-handed persons, with the blade in a tip-up position. Also, the back ring doubles as a carabiner, giving you additional attachment options. The Kydex sheath also includes a Torx wrench.

German Böker "Försternicker" Hunting Stag Knife
- Made in Solingen / Germany -
With the Boker Försternicker, we are calling on traditional values, since this vintage version of the Nicker used to be a popular part of our program several decades ago. The slightly wider, curved blade is typical for this design, offering a somewhat larger task profile than the classic pointed hunting knife. The curved spine with subtle thumb grooves add to the comfortable grip and highlight the exclusive design. The Försternicker is ideal for all outdoor tasks on the hunt, since the sturdy blade with its high flat grind combines stability with excellent cutting properties. The use of modern Böhler N690 for the blade highlights the exceptional practical value thanks to the superior edge retention compared to classic nicker steel. It is also easy to sharpen. The nickel silver bolster and butt give the Försternicker an excellent grip. The knife is easy to carry in the classic nicker sheath. With scales made from carefully selected stag.
Steel: N690 Blade length: 4.330“ inch / 110 mm Total length: 8.858” inch / 225 mm Handle length: 4.527" inch / 115 mm Handle scales: Stag Horn
Blade Thickness: 4.3 mm Weight 205 gr.
Additional information about what "Flat Grind" means:
The flat grind is a common grind for knife blades offering very good \"middle-grade\" cutting properties. Blades with a flat grind are used for a wide variety of knives, mainly kitchen knives, hunting knives and outdoor knives. This type of blade is flat-ground on both sides. Typically, a flat-ground blade tapers at a flat angle from the spine or just below all the way to the cutting edge of the blade. The cross-section of a flat-ground blade appears as V-shaped. Due to the high starting point of the grind, a flat-ground blade has a relatively thin top and center section compared to convex or hollow-ground blades. Like other grinds, the flat grind has several variations. They mainly differ in the higher or lower starting point of the grind. A full flat grind begins at the back of the blade on both sides and continues to the blade tip. Blades with a hollow flat grind have a lower starting point (first third of the blade length), while the grind of the so-called Scandi blades begins in the last third. In terms of cutting edge and stability, the flat grind offers a good compromise between the two other common grinds, hollow and convex. A flat-ground blade cuts better than a convex blade but not quite as well as the extremely sharp hollow grind. For most applications, this blade offers good cutting properties and provides the necessary stability for rougher cutting jobs. When it comes to cutting thinner materials, a hollow grind is superior to a flat-ground blade.
