Bestech Bouquet Series Returns for 2024 with the Sambac

Well it’s been a while since we’ve been able to talk about the ongoing Bestech/Ostap Hel Bouquet series, but at long last the collaborators have returned to the project with the Sambac. This one uses the jasmine flower as a jumping off point for a sleek larger folding knife design.

If you traced all of our scant botanical knowledge back to its origins, the vast majority would almost certainly come from covering the Bouquet line. The Sambac takes its name from a variety of jasmine flower, grown in parts of Asia. It sure is a pretty plant, and it translates into a very pretty knife, too, with a flowing trailing point blade that runs to 3.6 inches long. It’s a looker, but also a worker, with a potent point, some belly, and plenty of straight edge to address nearly any standard day-to-day cutting chore.

Opened solely with a flipper, you can get the Sambac with Damasteel if the fancy stuff is what you’re after. But it is also the first Bestech knife made from CPM MagnaCut, a steel that needs no further introduction, but whose first appearance in any lineup we like to point out. We can’t help but wonder if the presence of MagnaCut here means that Bestech will start transitioning its premium knives, typically made with M390, to the newer steel instead; either way its presence here should get the steel mavens to take note.

In keeping with the premium theme, you’ve got full titanium handle scales, available in several different colors including appropriately floral yellow and blue; all of the MagnaCut Sambac varietals also comes with a carbon fiber inlays on both front and back scales, while the Damasteel blade options have inserts made from either timascus, in its usual psychedelic blue-purple, or a Damasteel inlay, which matches the blade and is not something you see all that often.

This latest addition to the Bouquet is listed as Coming Soon.
