One of the most famous is the multi-part Boker Sports Knife, one of the ancestors of the renowned Swiss Army Knife. The knife was and still is a triumph in North America, winning over countless customers over the years. People did begin to ask for a bigger, sturdier knife of the same design, suitable for the rough everyday life on a ranch or in the wilderness. The idea of the cattle knife was born. Today, the classic pocket knives enjoy a renaissance as Modern Traditionals, reflecting timeless values such as sustainability, natural materials and true craftsmanship. Modern pocket knives don't necessarily require additional blades, since the main blade is made from much better steel than in the old days and can handle all cutting tasks of urban everyday life. The Boker Cattle Knife is a full-fledged slipjoint pocket knife for everyday use, featuring a blade of N690 fashioned in a historic shape. A tight spring holds the blade when opened as well as at 90 degrees. The long nail nick, also known as a long pull, is equipped with fine teeth, perfect for striking suitable matches. The tang of this knife is brass, while the decorative bolsters consist of nickel silver with a delicately milled groove. The handle material is traditional textured Jigged Bone. The fully handcrafted knife made by Boker Manufactory Solingen comes with the new version of the historic Boker tree symbol.
