The Boker Leopard Damascus III pocket knife is an impressive hand-made addition to the Turbine series. It features smooth and precise action and opens using the nail nick. The large spear-point styled blade is 300 layer Damascus steel. The handle is CNC machined AlMgSi1 with a Grenadill wood insert and a tip-up or down carry pocket clip on back. The Turbine has a 1.5 mm liner lock tab and a full open-build design. Comes gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity.
This pocket knife is the third generation of the high performance Damascus steel forged out of the barrel of the German battle tank Leopard I. For the first time Boker's Damascus forger welds two more steels with the battle tank steel. The extremely hard to treat material is welded with over 300 layers to create these handmade blades. The result is a hardness of 60-61° HRC and superior cutting capabilities.
