Böker Taps Peter Fegan for Fixed Blade Twofer

Böker is putting out two fixed blade designs from Australian maker Peter Fegan. Named the Beta and the Delta, the two knives riff on their Eastern-inspired designs with Fegan’s technical aesthetic.

Beta

Of the two knives on offer, the Beta adheres closer to EDC-style fixed blade design tropes. Its kwaiken-esque drop point is 3.38 inches long, and made from the Böker Plus line-standard 440C steel. A miniature fuller – cut for style rather than function – is incised just after a blade-spanning swedge. The rest of the knife’s 7.8-inch overall length comprises a linear handle, narrow at the neck for controlled cuts and accented on the spine and tail with wide-toothed jimping.

The Beta weighs just under 3 ounces, thanks in part to its extensive, staggered triangular skeletonization – a flourish that Fegan works into many of his custom pieces.

Delta

It is clear from a glance that the Delta settles into a more tactical genre than its stablemate. The design’s main attraction is the kunai-style, double-edged blade, which comes in a little over 3 inches long and is also made from 440C stainless steel. An hourglass handle, also skeletonized, terminates in a finger ring, and across the whole handle jimping has been liberally applied. These elements combine to make the Delta the lighter of the two offerings, with a weight of 2.5 oz.

Böker Delta

Neither the Delta and the Beta are made for extreme outdoor use, but they should stand up to relatively rugged cutting chores with .15″ blade stock. The knives come with a Kydex sheath ready for belt carry.

Fegan works out of Brisbane, Australia, designing knives, axes, and other things that fall outside the realm of edged tools. Both the Beta and the Delta are based off existing custom pieces from Fegan’s catalog.
