Messer von Böker

Bereits im 17. Jahrhundert wurde von der Familie Böker Handwerkzeuge hergestellt. Heinrich Böker gründete zusammen mit Herman Heuser, einem sehr bekannten Schneidwaren-Fachmann, im Jahr 1869 Heinr. Böker & Co. Die Mitglieder der Familie Böker hatten weltweit Bedarf für Rasiermesser, Scheren und Taschenmesser von dem Unternehmen Heinr. Böker & Co.

Bereits 1900 nahm der US-Markt den größten Teil der Böker-Produktion ab. H. Boker & Co. in New York konzentrierte sich sehr stark auf die Schneidwaren aus Solingen. Die Taschenmesser überflügelten in ihrer Bedeutung bald die Scheren, Rasiermesser und Bestecke. Die Nachfrage wuchs rasant, so dass die Amerikaner ebenfalls begannen Taschenmesser zu produzieren. Später kamen Zangen hinzu. Seit dieser Zeit gab es zwei unterschiedliche Linien von Böker-Messern auf dem amerikanischen Markt: Das gleiche Markenzeichen, sogar manchmal die gleichen Artikel-Nummern, einmal Made in USA und einmal in Solingen. Nur das Gangzeichen sorgte für Klarheit; einmal Boker USA und einmal H. Boker Improved Cutlery Solingen.

Während des zweiten Weltkrieges wurde das Solinger Werk komplett zerstört. Schon bald nach dem Krieg kam neues Leben in die zerstörte Fabrik. Wer von den treuen Facharbeitern den Krieg überlebt hatte, kam zurück und half, Gebäude und Produktion wieder aufzubauen und langsam zu dem hohen Qualitätsstandard zurückzufinden. Die Kontakte zu den amerikanischen Vettern wurden wieder aufgebaut und in wenigen Jahren wurde Boker, New York wieder Hauptabnehmer.

Anfang der sechziger Jahre wurde Boker USA verkauft und nach mehrfachem Wechseln von dem bekannten Scherenhersteller Wiss & Sons übernommen. Anfang der siebziger Jahre verkaufte Wiss an Cooper Industries, einem multinationalen Konzern. Cooper baute durch seiner Marktkraft den Böker-Namen wieder zu seiner ursprünglichen Größe aus. Dank der sehr regen Geschäftstätigkeit mit Cooper war man in Solingen in der Lage, die Produktion zu rationalisieren und neue moderne Produkte zu entwickeln.

Heute stellt das Baumwerk ohne Übertreibung das breiteste Sortiment an hochwertigen Sport- und Sammlermessern her, mit einer unübertroffenen Vielfalt an Materialien für Klingen und Griffe. Erst vor kurzem wurde die Böker Messerpalette erweitert durch eine Kooperation mit Jim Wagner. Der amerikanische Kampfkunst- und Messerkampfexperte hat zusammen mit Böker, basierend auf dem von ihm entwickelten Reality-Based-System, eine Reihe von Messern entwickelt. Jim Wagner bietet in Zusammenarbeit mit Böker zahlreiche Lehrgänge an.

Swiss Dagger Mosaic Damascus
As early as the 15th and 16th centuries, the Swiss dagger was used as a common weapon by Swiss pikemen and, due to its blade length, often occupied a middle position between dagger and sword. The dagger, also known as a baselard, usually served as a secondary weapon and was usually not issued as equipment, but had to be procured privately by the soldiers.The extraordinary Twisted Damascus is now followed by the Mosaic Damascus, which is also very complex to manufacture. It is one of the royal class of Damascus forging and makes the impressive dagger an absolute highlight in every knife collection. In contrast to conventional Damascus, no layers are produced in the manufacture of Mosaic Damascus. Instead, complex Damascus bars are forged by hand into a mosaic in an elaborate and very complicated process. To do this, the Damascus package, which initially consists of stacked layers, is cut up and reassembled in a staggered manner to create a unique mosaic pattern at the end faces of the bar. The Damascus is then cut up again and the complex process is repeated several times, the resulting pattern becoming finer and more unique with each step. Finally, the individual packages are stacked and forged in the shape of a square so that the ends of the individual pieces form a new surface. Forging temperature, forming, deformation rate and the previous steps must be optimally coordinated. This extremely demanding forging process, which only few Damascus smiths master, is carried out to perfection for our Swiss dagger by Chad Nichols.The dagger blade, sharpened and pointed on both sides, already had a diamond-shaped cross-section in historical models, because this construction proved to be extremely stable and effective. Characteristic of the Swiss Dagger is the design of the pommel and the crossguard. The unusual, curved design can be traced back to the early 13th century and can also be found in the authentic design of our hand-made edition. The shimmering dark handle made of hand-picked certified imported Ebony is bordered by the highly polished pommel and the crossguard and forms a perfect unit with the fine blade.The leather sheath, specially designed and handsewn for this model, underlines the exclusivity of this coveted collector‘s item. It is delivered with an individual serial number in a noble wooden box and with a certificate of authenticity. Handmade in the Boker Knife Manufactory Solingen and strictly limited to 500 pieces worldwide.
