Description

The classic trapper has been a widespread form of knife since the beginning of the 20th century as a versatile pocket knife and owes its name to the American rangers who roamed North America as hunters and trappers. They were among the most important explorers and pioneers of the European settlement on the continent and were often the first to contact the Indians and Eskimos. Also at the turn of the century, Hugo Asbach in Rüdesheim on the Rhine created the German brandy that is still on everyone’s lips today as Asbach Uralt. Particularly important for the characteristic taste of this noble brandy is the complex maturing process, which takes place in small oak barrels made of Limousin oak wood that has been aged for several years. Its wood is particularly large-pored and permeable to air, so that the fine brandy can breathe and mature in exchange with the air in this way.

The noble handle scales of the Boker Trapper Asbach Uralt are made from the unique oak wood of time-honored Asbach barrels, which are now allowed to take on a new role after decades of storage. And just like the small barrels, the front handle scale of the pocket knife also bears the brand stamp of the famous wine distillery. The polished 440C blade features a classic nail nick and does not lock. The distinctive bolsters are made of nickel silver and contrast nicely with the historical wood of the scales. The slim design makes the Trapper the perfect companion for everyday use. Handmade in the Boker Manufactory in Solingen and strictly limited to 999 pieces worldwide. With a high-quality felt case for storage, certificate of authenticity, and individual serial number.
