Böker Solingen "Boy Scout Lightweight" Pocket Knife
- Made in Solingen / Germany -
The Boker Scout has been firmly connected to our name since 1985. No one can say today if anyone would have expected that the Pocket knife would be one of the most successful and popular Knifes from our range. But these many years in short-lived fads, that are also not unusual on the knife market, is definitely special. While no other model has had as many versions as the Scout over the years, the basic specifications never changed. The Boker Boy Scout breaks with this tradition and (while not changing the design) provides a smaller, pocket-friendlier version that plays to its strength primarily as compact everyday companion. The Boy Scout also has a significantly lower profile, yet is just as rugged and durable as its big brother. Featuring high tech G-10bolsters, so the Boy Scout Lightweight is barely noticeable in your pocket and is even more comfortable in everyday life. The hollow ground blade made of stainless N690 is forged by Böhler and contributes with its memorable shape to the incomparable appearance of the Scout. A classic Backlock keeps the blade safely open. When the knife is opened, the spine locks into a notch on the back of the blade. To close the knife, push down the exposed part of the spine. The harmonic overall impression of this modern classic is completed by pleasantly shaped handle scales made of local Olive Wood.

Additional steel informations:
The cobalt-alloyed N690 by Böhler (not to be confused with the lower-grade N695!) is a very reliable upper middle-grade steel we use at our Solingen manufacture for a wide variety of projects. The fine-grained N690, which ranks above 440C, offers convincing performance data in all areas. It is often sold as N690Co – the "Co" stands for cobalt and describes the exact same steel.
