Böker Sporting Knife
The Solingen Original Pocket Knife
This knife - equipped with leather drill, can opener, screwdriver, cap lifter, corkscrew as well as large and small blade - is the symbol of traditional Solingen pocket knife manufacturing. It was known as a military knife and was built in this form by numerous knife manufactures in the place before 1900. The tools for this knife from the Böker knife manufactory date from the post-war period, but the assembly, reeding and finishing (i.e. sharpening and polishing) still take place almost as they did 100 years ago.
177 individual operations are required to produce this pocket knife from raw steel and a piece of zebu horn, consisting of 18 individual parts - not counting pins and rivets.
In its heyday, the knife was carried on a chain like a pocket watch in a patent pouch. With the zebu horn handle scales you get the knife only from us.
The one with the tree. Böker in Solingen
The origin of the Heinrich Böker cutlery workshop in Solingen, founded in 1869, was the family's hand tool factory in Remscheid. On the opposite bank of the Wupper River, a large chestnut tree belonged to Böker's workshop as early as the 17th century. The old tree was struck by lightning one day, but as a trademark and seal of quality it has survived to this day and still adorns every knife that leaves the forge. Many production processes are similar to those of 100 years ago - only without steam engines and transmission belts. Some pocket knives from the early years of the forge are still being made, like the Böker knives in our range.
Horn is a natural product which always differs in colouring and graining. So products made of this material are never identical and thus unique in colour and marking. The product should be treated regularly, with our horn balm for example.
