Are you looking for a Boker hunting knife because you own or have seen another type of German made Boker knife that impressed you?
It wouldn't surprise me, because that's kind of what happened to me.
I needed a new knife to use on the job, and instead of getting a more affordable major brand-name knife, I decided to spend a few extra dollars for a German made Boker folding knife, the model 90 X Badger.
I've found it superior to all of the knives I've used previously, so as far as I'm concerned, the slightly higher price was money well spent.
Several practical models and styles of Boker hunting knife are available, and you'll find you can choose from a variety of fixed blade or folding knives, carbon or stainless steel blades, and beautiful, durable handle materials.
Fixed blade models are available with perfectly proportioned 3 1/2" to 4 5/8" drop point blades forged from 440 C stainless steel.
The finger guards are forged integrally with the blade, and the Model 585AM has an integrally forged pommel.
The handles are carefully crafted with finger grooves to improve the hold on the knife, and you can choose handle materials of Amboina, Palisander Rosewood, or Stag horn.
Of course, these German knives come with leather sheaths.
These knives are attractive, designed to be efficient, and built to last a life-time.
If you prefer something a little smaller and lighter, a medium sized, lock back, folding Boker hunting knife is available with a single 3 1/8" clip point blade of 440 C stainless steel.
You can choose handle materials of Delrin, Buffalo Horn, Thuya wood,
Rosewood, Stag, Bone, or Mother of Pearl.
These knives also come with a leather belt sheath, except for the Mother of Pearl model, which comes with a wood presentation box.
Look for Models 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, & 2007
Slightly larger, but not heavy-weights, Models 2000, 3000, & 4000 are lock backs with a single 3 3/8" drop point blade of 440 C stainless steel.
These knives are 4 5/8" closed, and come with a leather belt sheath.
Once again you have a choice of Bone, Rosewood, Stag, or Thuya handles.
Looking for adaptability? The Optima is a medium sized Boker hunting knife that offers the advantage of interchangeable blades.
It is 4 3/4" closed, and you can choose handles of Delrin, Bone, or Stag, and you can also select from these blade types:

How much game can a Boker hunting knife clean without being re-sharpened?
