Appaloosa Copperhead Folding Knife -
This series of traditional pocket knives is dedicated to the famous Appaloosa horse. Characterized by their incredible strength and stamina, these horses can be distinguished by their unique coloring, various shades of brown and white, in the form of irregular spots. This was the inspiration for the beautifully structured bone handles we chose for this series. The dark and light spots on the scales make each knife truly unique. We have also designed a special new Boker shield, exclusively for this premium series. Blades are made of C-75 carbon steel. 3 3/4" closed.
Clip Blade -
The clip blade is a classic shape and very practical. Its name describes a shape that seems to have a portion of the spine of the blade clipped off. This brings the blade point lower for extra control and enhances the sharpness of the tip. It provides ample "belly" in the blade for slicing or skinning and a good tip for inserting in and under things that need to be cut. You will often find a false edge with the clip point.
Drop Point Blade -
This blade has a gentle, sloping convex curve to the point versus the concave curve of the clip blade. Being thicker, this blade point is stronger for heavier tasks. It stands up to abuse well, but isn't as effective for easy penetration.
Carbon Steel -
an alloy of iron and carbon, can be very sharp, hold its edge well, and remain easy to sharpen, but is vulnerable to rust and stains.
