Boker Tirpitz Damascus

Boker Tirpitz Damascus

Description

A piece of history comes to life! The Tirpitz, sister ship of the legendary Bismark, was the largest battleship ever launched by the German Navy. History tells of many attempts to destroy this mighty weapon loaded colossus. On November 12, 1944, the Tirpitz was hit by Western Allied bombing raids causing it to roll over and sink.Shortly after WWII a Norwegian specialised company began to explore the wreck to obtain the high alloy steel for civilian use.

Especially for Boker, Norwegian divers have now retrieved parts of the special armour of the Tirpitz from the Fjord. These pieces of living history are being exclusively forged by Boker`s Damascus forger into extraordinary blades with an exiting background. The "Great Pyramids" pattern, with more than 300 layers, adorns this blade and makes piece the highlight of any collection.The combination of the Tirpitz steel and carbon tool steels creates an extremely rugged Damascus steel, with a hardness of 61 HRC.

The handle, made of high strength AIMgSi1 aluminium is hardcoat anodised and provides a firm and secure grip. For the handle inlay Boker chose Walnut, which has a long history as shaft wood for German rifles due to its superior qualities. This eyecatching inlay features the original Tirpitz crest.

Handmade in Solingen, Germany it is supplied in a presentation case and is serial numbered.

    Hello people,

    It’s a bit of history and a knife one must understand to fully grasp what this knife is. The Tirpitz was bombed by bomber command during WW2 and was sunk whilst at anchor by 2 Tallboy earthquake bombs which has 10 tons of aluminised TNT High explosives. It was the worlds most powerful bomb during WW2 until the nuke was born.

    I think it’s a great talking piece and is a family heirloom knife that can be handed down from farther to son/daughter and so on. It would of been great if they could of incorporated some of the recovered high carbon bomb casing metal as bomb casings are heat tested to harden them after machining obviously prior to use lol.

    After many decades of dreaming of owning a damascus knife, I finally pulled the trigger and fulfilled that dream! And what better way to do it than owning a piece of German history! Admittedly, I initially had my sights on the Boker Leo II in Damascus, but just as i added it to the cart, I noticed it didnt have the thumbstuds, which was a deal breaker for me. then the Tirpitz jumped in front of me and told me to check her out! It would have been great if the tirpitz was made from the barrel of one of the guns, but the armour is good enough. The blade is a work of art and truely mesmerising. It's a solid and hefty knife. all parts fit perfectly and the blade is so smooth to open and close with such a satisfying snap of the lock. Totally worth the money!
    Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about the box. The earlier versions of the knife came in a wooden box with Tirpitz printed on it. Now they ship their knives in a 'floating knife' stand, where the knife easily moves about during transportation. And the knife is shipped in this presentation box in opened position so the blade is not protected, and can stick out of the box, as it did with another Boker knife i bought.
    Service and delivery from HH is every bit as good as the knife itself. perfect!! cant fault them! keep up the good work!! ;-)

    One must take this knife in hand to understand what is this knife except history. If you hesitate, which one Tirpitz Damast or Tirpitz, answer is one- Damast. Tirpitz is too expensive may be not as quality, but image how you will hold this knife in winter time. Because of that in review about Leo II you could read "1/3 of soldiers", who are working not so in North. I possess # 370, despite the price, and ist's enough for conclusion what is this knife.
