Boker Plus Apparo 02BO001 - 440C Blade - Cord Wrapped Hollow Handle
Even before the First Blood movie made them popular, the knife market has seen numerous survival knives with hollow handles. Many of them should only be regarded as mere show pieces, due to a lack of stability. However, Newton Martin from Texas has developed a construction which is virtually indestructible, despite the screwed tang and handle. Extreme bending tests with this fixed blade have permanently deformed the blade before any kind of weak points were noticeable at the point of connection. International experts have been highly enthusiastic about the presentation of these custom knives, and now Boker is extremely proud to present this successful concept by Martin Knives as an exclusive Boker Plus product.
It's massive blade has a thickness of 6.8 mm, and is made of high performance 440C stainless steel. The construction of the handle provides an entirely waterproof compartment inside the handle, for the safe storage of additional equipment (not included). The cord wrapping of the handle not only increases the grip but also provides several valuable meters of stable rope in case of an emergency. Due to the milled checkering, the handle also provides a safe amount of grip in various conditions without the wrapping. The prominent handguard enhances the secure handling of the knife. The handle and blade have a matte, non-reflective blasted finish. The Boker Plus Apparo is knife without compromise, ready for any adventure! Includes a high quality black leather sheath.
