The unmistakable lines of the Mustang P-51 prompted Böker to undertake this exciting project. The challenge for Steve Kelly was to design and make a knife to match the performance and elegance of the fighter plane without compromising practicality. The heart of the Böker Plus P-51 Damast is its distinctive spearpoint blade made of 80-layer Damascus, which was forged by Chad Nichols, and consists of original parts from the historic fighter plane. A highlight is the titanium handle, which replicates the riveted metal of the aircraft. The blue blade axle screw bearing the Silver Star of the US Army, and the red anodized screws, are based on the color scheme of the rudder. Extreme reliability is promised by the titanium frame-lock with a stainless-steel inlay, which holds the blade securely in place. Despite the clear lines, the handle lies comfortably in the hand due to ergonomic cutouts. The solid titanium clip is machined and allows for tip-up carry, while the lanyard hole offers further attachment options. A must for all knife collectors and friends of historic aircraft. Comes with a high-quality nylon pouch. Overall length 7.6”, blade length 3.35”, weighs 3.81 oz.
