Raphaël Durand is one of the most sought-after custom knife makers in France and the Boker Boxer is reflective of his handmade pieces that command premium prices with his books always full. This makes the release of his most popular Boxer model by Boker Solingen even more exciting. This limited 2022 Annual Damascus version comes with a hand forged Nichols’ Damascus blade, copper liners, and 5500 year old bog oak wood 3D scales. Each serialized piece includes a floating display and certificate of authenticity.
Limited to 999 pieces worldwide.
Brand new, direct from Boker Knives.
Blade: Durand’s beautifully sweeping clip point blade is executed in custom hand forged stainless Damascus steel from Chad Nichols for a striking look and modern performance. There is no nail nick on the blade, common on Durand designs, but the blade is easily opened by pinching the blade spine and pulling to open with moderate slip joint tension and a solid half stop for security.
Handle: A classic, Mediterranean influenced folder, the Boxer has raw copper liners and pins with scales of sculpted 5500-year-old bog oak wood, a semi-petrified wood that is very dense with a dark, rich look and velvety feel. Copper complements the dark wood and will develop a unique patina over time with carry and use. A hollow pin allows for lanyard attachment.
Nichols Stainless Damascus: Stainless Damascus offers the performance of a modern stainless steel with the striking look of etched, pattern welded steel. Composed of 180 layers of AEB-L and 304, Nichols’ stainless Damascus delivers exceptional corrosion resistance and toughness with good hardness for edge retention.
