NON-STAINLESS - UNIQUE HANDFORGED IN SOLINGEN GERMANY
A piece of history comes alive: The Tirpitz, sister ship of the legendary Bismarck, was the largest battle ship ever launched for the German Navy. Norwegian divers have salvaged for Boeker in the fjord parts of the specific armour of the Tirpitz. From these pieces the Boeker damask forger forges exclusively an exceptional damask with fascinating history.
The pattern "Great Pyramid" in 300(!)-Layers characterizes this powerful blade made of handforged damask steel and makes this knife to a highlight of any knife collection.
The combination of the Tirpitz-steel with carbon-toolsteel creates also an extremely claimable damask steel, with a hardness of 61 degrees Rockwell the blade will grown every task.
