Originally developed to replace the M3 Grant/Lee medium tank, the Sherman tank's main mission was to support the infantry, lead attacks and reinforce defensive positions. The Sherman was built close to 50,000 times and was the most widely used tank of the Allies during World War II. It was produced in countless mission-specific variations and was used well into the Cold War.
Together with the Americans in the Wartime Museum in Virginia, we have managed to preserve an important piece of lost history. The Boker Sherman-Damascus is equipped with a unique damascus blade with 80 layers, forged from different materials from the production of M4 Sherman tanks, which were previously restored by the museum. The unique damascus is forged by hand for us by Chad Nichols in the Customized Ladder pattern and is reminiscent of the tank tracks left in the ground by the heavy chains of the M4 Sherman. The ball bearing blade is opened by thumb stud and locked by a solid steel frame lock, a Hinderer Lock-Stop acts as overstretch protection for the lock.
The overall shape of the knife is a tribute to the aesthetic lines of the armour, while the decorative blade axle screw is modelled on the characteristic main drive sprocket. The slightly contoured burlap micarta handle fits comfortably in the hand and the colour is reminiscent of the camouflage paint used by both the U.S. Army and the Marine Corps. With lanyard hole and practical deep carry clip (tip-up/r). Handmade in the Boker knife manufactory in Solingen. Delivery with noble floating display, certificate of authenticity and individual serial number.
A portion of the proceeds from each knife sold goes to the Americans in the Wartime Museum to support educational programmess and the care and preservation of these proud examples of American history. The Americans in the Wartime Museum is a non-profit cultural and educational institution dedicated to honouring those who served in all branches of the U.S. military and on the home front from World War I to the present. The museum serves to educate the public, especially young people, by telling individual stories of personal experiences, war realities and sacrifices made by Americans in the struggle to preserve freedom and liberties. The museum inspires visitors by allowing them to experience military vehicles, explore artifacts, and participate in reenactments and special programmes in a dynamic, interactive environment.

Hits Most of My Buttons
Solingen, Chad Nichols, M4 Tank, and ball bearings. Just wish I knew the ball bearing type, steel or ceramic. Without knowing, I'll be tempted to open her to see when she arrives next week. Hope, hope, hope they aren't IKBS microscopic bearings flying around everywhere they will never be found again.
Superb design concept. Reminiscent of a time when the US won the war by entering it, and the single man most responsible for the outcome of WWII.
Radiates American Patriotism and Perfect German Attention to Detail
I'm extremely impressed with the M4 Sherman-Damascus knife. The Damascus blade workmanship is mind-blowing and the Burlap Micarta Scale is a perfect choice to complement the Damascus blade. I could not find a flaw in any component of this knife and the Anti-gravity Display box is such a wonderful idea to show off your new collectable knife.
