The steel we were able to obtain for our Damascus project came from an E-series Messerschmitt Bf 109 that was shot down by a Royal Airforce Supermarine Spitfire in 1940 during the Battle of Britain near the village of Ashford in the British county of Kent. The specific parts are the rear plate of the pilot's steel-plated seat and the bearing sleeve of the propeller shaft. These are forged by Chad Nichols into a high-carbon, high-cut 80-layer Damascus.
The Boker Plus ME 109 Damascus picks up numerous design elements of the legendary Messerschmitt. The opening at the back of the blade base has the unmistakable shape of the pilot's cockpit and is visible when the knife is closed and open. The folds in the sheet metal of the engine cowling as recesses for the barrel soul axles of the two MG 17s form the template for the schor at the tip of the blade. The flipper indicates a wheel of the retractable landing gear. For the front carbon fibre shell, the material Toxic Storm from the manufacturer Fatcarbon Materials was chosen in the colours green, black and yellow. The colour scheme is based on the characteristic camouflage paint of the Bf 109 with greenish-grey undercoat and yellow front fuselage. The opposite side has a titanium framelock with an elaborately integrated carbide contact surface. A beautifully designed and elaborately integrated clip allows the Boker Plus ME 109 to be worn tip-up on the right. Supplied with a high-quality case for storage and a certificate of authenticity.
