During the 15th and 16th centuries, Swiss pike men often carried a knife known as the Baselard. And this is where the design of the Boker 121551 Dam comes from. The knife has a crescent-shaped pommel and hand guard just like the knives used by the pike men. And the best thing about the knife is that it was made using the ancient smithing process used during the middle Ages.
The blade of the Boker 121551 Dam is composed of four bands of twisted Damascus steel that are made of manganese and nickel tool steel. The steel is forged to form the perfectly symmetrical blade through a challenging smithing process. Each strip of blade is composed of a Damascus packet that was hand-forged and twisted 15 times. Then the forger fire welds four twisted Damascus packets to create the blade of the knife.
The blade possesses the legendary strength of the Damascus steel. Not only that, the smithing process has resulted to the unique pattern on the blade, which is known as twisted Damascus. Twisted Damascus blades were known to be the best type of blades during the middle Ages. They were reserved for use by kings, princes, and other nobles. But now you have the chance to own one for yourself.
The complex forging process can only be done by well-trained Damascus forgers. And Boker has Andreas Henrichs to do the blades for them.
