Boker Trapper Plum Wood Folding Knife

SKU: BK112585

MSRP: $169.95

The Boker Trapper Plum Wood Folding Knife is a beautiful single-blade knife fully hand-crafted in Boker's Solingen, Germany factory, where Boker has been making knives since 1869.

The handles of this unique piece are made of local German plum wood. While the wood's color is light when the knife is new, its hues of red and purple will develop and deepen as it ages, darkening over time with exposure to UV light. This plum wood is hard, with a high density and fine pores, and it shows its natural structure.

This beautiful knife has a non-stainless carbon steel blade made of C75, which has superior edge retention and is easy to resharpen. This strong, elegant blade will darken and stain with use over time, giving each knife a character of its own and telling its stories. This beautiful blade features an etching of the historic Boker Tree Brand Classic logo.

The Trapper folding knife, a staple in the Boker line for many years, has a slender profile, making it the ideal everyday carry. It was named for the men who roamed the North American prairie years ago, hunting and trapping.

  • Brass Liners
  • Hand Crafted in Solingen, Germany

The Boker Tree Brand Story 
In the 17th century, the Boker family began a small hardware factory beneath a towering chestnut tree in Germany. This tree was incorporated into the Boker's first logo in the 1600s, and has remained an important brand symbol. Over the years, the Boker family expanded their business and moved to Solingen, the City of Blades, to begin the now-famous knife line with cutlery expert Hermann Heuser. In honor of the majestic tree from their first factory, Boker was originally known as Tree Brand, and many still refer to it by this name.
