Immediately after the end of the Second World War, a Norwegian specialist company began to cannibalise the ship, which had sunk off the Norwegian coast, in order to make the high-alloy steel available for civilian purposes. Norwegian divers recovered parts of the Tirpitz's special armour from the fjord for Boker. From these pieces of living history, the Boker damascus smith exclusively forges an extraordinary damascus supplied with fascinating history. The Great Pyramid pattern in 200 layers distinguishes the hand-forged Damascus blade and makes the knife a highlight of any knife collection. However, the combination of Tirpitz steel with carbon tool steels also results in an extremely durable Damascus that, with a Rockwell hardness of 61 to 63 HRC, is up to any task in everyday use.
The operating safety of the history-steeped slipjoint pocket knife is further enhanced by a 90-degree locking mechanism when opening and closing. The characteristic drop shape of the Barlow can be traced back to the English pocket knives of the 17th century, which certainly makes it one of the oldest models ever. The name of the classic probably goes back to an enterprising Sheffield knife manufacturer of the same name, who began exporting the robust knives to North America around 1800. There they immediately enjoyed great popularity and so the first Barlow models also appeared in the history of the Boker Manuactory in Solingen at the end of the 19th century.
This integral version of the timeless classic with a contoured handle body made of black micarta, which is milled from the solid and also forms the characteristic bolsters of the Barlow. The lightweight construction can thus completely dispense with additional liners made of metal. Thanks to the likewise contoured handle scales made of domestic walnut wood, the unique gentleman's knife lies extremely comfortably in the hand. The decorative rivets are made of nickel silver, the blade axle screw of stainless steel. Supplied with a high-quality felt case for storage. Handmade in the Boker Knife Manufactory in Solingen.
