Boker Tirpitz-Damast Gold

On April 1, 1939, the Tirpitz, named after Fleet Admiral Alfred von Tirpitz, was christened, and launched in Wilhelmshaven. Since then, a larger battleship has never been built again in Europe. Now, 80 years later, we are presenting the special edition Boker Tirpitz-Damascus Gold as a reminder that Western Europe suffered through two World Wars and has been living in peace and liberty since 1945. In memory of the countless victims of those wars – especially the crew of the Tirpitz – we are donating 10€ per sold knife to the War Graves Commission.

The enormous battleship was sunk in 1944 off the Norwegian coast. Right after the end of World War II, a Norwegian company sent experts to salvage the ship's wreck, in order to make the highly alloyed steel available for civilian purposes. Boker received some parts of the salvaged armoring of the Tirpitz. Our Damascus blacksmith took these pieces of living history and forged an exclusive and exceptional steel with a fascinating history.

At first glance, the Boker Tirpitz-Damascus Gold fascinates with its peerless Damascus blade, exclusively plated with gold. The blade consists of 300 layers of hand-forged Tirpitz-Damascus with the "Great Pyramid" pattern. The subtle sheen of the gold plating catches the eye of the beholder. All elements such as thumb stud, blade and handle screws, spacers, liner, clip and replacement clip plate are gold-plated as well. The blade is secured with a 1.5 mm thick linerlock.

The repositionable clip (tip-up/tip-down) allows for convenient carry options. The inlay of domestic walnut wood sports the coat of arms and name of the Tirpitz. Each knife of this special edition is an elegant combination of history, remembrance, and modern technology. Completely handmade by Boker in Solingen. It comes in a frame case with an individual serial number and a certificate of authenticity.

    "Fantastic shop! Very helpful and has a good variety of Knives, Axes, and Accessories. They were able to reshape one my old knives that I’ve had for about ten years. The tip broke off a couple years ago by another person that used it. Now the knife looks like it had never happened. Definitely will be back for a new fixed blade when it gets closer to hunting season!"
