On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of Boker Manufactory, the Mayor of Solingen asked us if we could design a high-quality pocketknife in the city colors. He would like to be able to gift such a knife to guests and dignitaries on special occasions. We were honored by the request and it did not take long for us to select the popular and versatile Boker Scout as the base model.
For more than 30 years, the Scout has gained fans among knife enthusiasts around the world with its elegant, timeless lines and sturdy, ergonomic build with a sintered handle. The colors of the City of Solingen are a deepsteel blue and golden yellow. Instead of a sinterednickel silver body, the Scout Solingen is the first to have a body of solid brass, solid-milled usingCNC technology. Inspired by the great chestnut tree that once stood in front of the first Boker Tool Manufactory, we decided to use blue stabilized chestnut wood for the handle scales. To emphasize the centuries-old tradition of the City of Blades, Solingen, the blade is made from non-stainlessC75carbon steel and finished with an authentic acid wash. The fully handcrafted knife made by Boker Manufactory Solingen comes with the new version of the historic Boker tree symbol.
