Böker Plus 01BO547 German SAR-Service Seenotretter SlipJoint Rescue Folder - Combo Edge Blade - 1.4116 Stainless Steel Construction

The German SAR-service Seenotretter is responsible for the maritime search and rescue service in the German areas of the North Sea and Baltic Sea - 24/7 in all types of weather. "Heading out, when others seek shelter" is their mission.

Since its foundation over 158 years ago, the official legal name has been the German Maritime Search and Rescue Service (DGzRS). The Federal Republic of Germany has entrusted this society with the sovereign task of maritime search and rescue services in the North Sea and Baltic Sea areas. Today, they are one of the most modern and professional maritime rescue services in the world. The primary goal is the fast and effective rescue of human lives. To keep this goal free from external influence and other interests, the sea rescuers have relied on independence from the very beginning and deliberately refrain from using public funds. Funding is based exclusively on voluntary donations. The rescue of human lives at the risk of their own lives is mainly carried out by volunteer sea rescuers.

In view of these offshore professionals, Boker has developed the knife model Boker Plus Seenotretter 01, which meets the high requirements of their challenging job. As a classic no-nonsense tackle knife, it is aimed at professional and private users on maritime and inland waters, or people who work a lot with ropes. It is made entirely of stainless steel. The main blade made of 1.4116 is equipped with a half wave to cut encrusted ropes and harnesses. The marlin spike (for untying hardened knots) also includes shackle and bottle openers. Both blades are held in place by a robust and dirt-resistant slipjoint. For durability and reliability, solid domehead studs are used instead of screws. The front scale is embossed with the Hanseatic cross, the well-known emblem of the DGzRS. Carrying is made easier with a deep-carry clip (tip-up/right hand). A generously sized cord eyelet protects against loss. For every knife sold, Boker donates 5 Euros to the SAR-organization German Maritime Search and Rescue Service (DGzRS).
