Böker Mixes Modern With Traditional at Blade Show 2017

Böker keeps up a steady stream of releases throughout the year, and the company put its latest releases on display at Blade Show. Standouts were a new collaboration with custom maker Jason B. Stout, and a special limited edition of a tried and true model that honors the knife company’s historic past.

The Lateralus is based off a Stout custom design and shares the original’s industrial style. This knife has a large 3.5-inch D2 blade that flips out on a ball bearing pivot. Milling on the show side scale and an unmistakable profile give the knife a one-of-a-kind look. The handle widens towards the butt of the knife and should make for a comfortable albeit unconventional, ergonomic design. You can pick up a Lateralus with either a stainless steel or a G-10 show side scale. Both versions will come in under $100.

Böker also brought an especially unique variation of its enduring Scout model back lock knife. The company recently discovered documentation indicating that the Böker family first registered their famous tree symbol as a private brand in 1674, making the logo at least 343 years old. To mark the occasion they are bringing out the Scout 1674, with Amboina root wood covers in a limited run of – you guessed it – 343 pieces.
