The Boker Plus Damascus Gent 2 Pocket Knife is a collector�s item that follows the ancient tradition of Damascus steelsmithing. It is a smaller version of the Gent 1. The forged 67 layer Damascus steel gives the blade an attractive, wavy pattern. Damascus steel was once the subject of legend and mythology. Swords forged of the material were rumored to be able to cut through rifle barrels. Obviously, these claims are exaggerated, but they make clear the incredible respect ancient sword smiths had for the material. The black handle perfectly complements the traditional crafting process. A thumb stud makes it easy to close and open this knife.
