The cut and polished shells of the pearl oysters were once a common currency and have been used in the production of jewellery for a long time. The handles of the Boker Mother of Pearl are made of mother-of-pearl imitation and are very robust in contrast to the natural material. The shimmering handle harmonises beautifully with the partial gilding of the blade's back and scabbard. The extra hollow and ridge ground blade in the size 6/8 inch is made of the classic non stainless carbon steel O1. With authentic Boker stamp in the blade bore, certificate of authenticity and historical packaging. Handmade in the Boker knife manufactory Solingen.
