This extraordinary Böker Sherman Damascus knife is a piece of living history, combining high-quality craftsmanship with historical materials. The M4 Sherman Tank, produced from 1942-1945, with 50,000 made, was in service until 1957. Together with the Americans in Wartime Museum in Virginia we’ve preserved a piece of history. The unique Damascus blade is forged of materials from M4’s that were restored by the museum. The Damascus is hand-forged by Chad Nichols in a custom Ladder pattern, reminiscent of the tank tracks. The ball bearing blade is opened by a thumb stud and locked by a solid steel frame lock. A Hinderer Lock-Stop acts as overstretch protection. The blade axle screw is modeled on the tank’s main drive sprocket wheel. The jute Micarta handle fits comfortably, and its color is camouflage paint used by the Army and Marine Corps. With lanyard hole, and practical deep carry pocket clip (tip-up/r). Handmade in the Böker knife factory in Solingen. Presented in a stylish display with a certificate of authenticity and individual serial number. Blade length: 3.03". Thickness: 3.4mm. Overall length: 6.89". 3.8 oz.
