Product Description

Ever since we were founded by Heinrich Boker in 1869, we have considered ourselves a manufacturer with historical awareness. With 148 years of uninterrupted company history in Solingen, we feel as committed to our heritage and tradition as we are to innovation and modern technology. The extremely versatile model range of the Boker knife manufactory in Solingen underlines this business philosophy. Boker Mexico was founded in 1865 by Robert Boker, Heinrich's cousin. The company is still owned by the Boker family, now in its 4th generation. On the 150th anniversary of Boker Mexico we obtained access to very interesting documents of which we had previously not been aware and which placed the history of the Boker brand in a new light. Back in Solingen, we immediately consulted historians from the Bergisches Land and after some calculation and verification found out that that the Boker family first registered the coat of arms with the famous tree as "private brand" in 1674. This historic coat of arms features a green tree on silver field at the shore of a blue river. We see this as a direct reference to the whetstones which were water-powered even then. The thus were able to prove that the history of the Boker tree is at least 343 years old! Of course we took this discovery as an occasion to design a special limited edition to celebrate the year of the trademark registration appropriately. We chose Amboina root wood for the uniform scales of the edition models, one of the most popular wood types which is used here only stabilized. The finely stropped blades come with the traditional Solingen blade finish. The selection of models includes classics as well as important models in more recent history. Every knife is strictly limited to 343 pieces. Delivered with a certificate and individual serial number.

The Boker Optima is a Pocketknife that can take rough handling and use. The exceptionally thick blade made of 440C is stainless, hollow ground and securely fastened by the Backlock. The blades of the Optima series are all exchangeable, so that the knife can be quickly adapted to the respective requirements. The exchange-blade system transforms this one-part knife into a multi-functional knife. The handle body is sintered from a piece of nickel silver. With the historic Boker family coat of arms and handle scales made of stabilized Amboina.
