The Boker Sherman Damascus is a premium EDC knife and a piece of world history. The blade is made of Damascus steel forged by Chad Nichols into the "Ladder" pattern. The steel for the blade was sourced from decommissioned M4 Sherman tanks, produced and in service during WWII. The M4 Sherman was used by American, Canadian, British, French, Chinese, and Soviet forces.
The knife has a micarta handle and a steel frame lock, colored to remind the eye of the camo paint used on Army and Marine Corps vehicles. The blade snaps open easily using the ball bearings in the pivot and the dual thumb studs.

The Boker M4 Sherman is a folder with many refinements. The blade is Chad Nichols Damascus from the M4 Sherman tank. The frame lock indentation on the back side faces internally, making the clip easy to use without catching on the pocket. More frame lock knives should use this technique. There is snappy blade deployment with thumb studs. The Burlap Micarta is grippy and nicely done. The Pivot is supposed to mimic the front gear mechanism on the tank. All in all, a beautiful and historic knife!
This knife is simply outstanding. With a build quality is second to none, the Boker M4 Sherman Damascus feels even better than you'd expect for a knife in this price range. The fit and finish are excellent. The blade is a true work of art and definitely the star of the show. That said however, the attention to detail on this knife is fantastic. And the fact that this knife is blended with a real piece of military history, I just can't say enough good things about it. Wonderful job by Boker.
