The noble collector's version is equipped with a blade of stainless Damascus by Chad Nichols, forged by hand in the Ripple pattern. It is opened by nail nick and does not lock. The unusual handle scales are made of domestic blue-stabilized curly maple wood, which has a unique striped transverse pattern. In combination with the decorative brass bolsters, this creates the colours of the city of Solingen. The bolster on the front of the knife also features the well-known city coat of arms.
While two crossed swords are intended to emphasise the importance of the City of Blades as the place of origin of high-quality cutlery, the anchor is considered the symbol of St. Clement, who has been venerated as the patron saint of the city since the 10th century. Handmade in the Boker Knife Manufactory in Solingen and strictly limited to 999 pieces worldwide. With noble floating display, certificate of authenticity and individual serial number.
Ten euro of the proceeds from each knife sold will be donated to to the Kinderschutzbund Solingen, which has been actively supporting needy children and parents in our city for over 40 years. Especially children suffer from the great economic and social challenges that have arisen and grown due to the worldwide pandemic also here in Solingen. The attentive social workers advise families under the motto "help for self-help" and relieve parents in difficult situations with their competence and expertise. In the Solingen clothing store, the Kinderschutzbund also sells well-preserved toys, books and clothes for babies, children and adults. All proceeds are used to support current projects as well as child and youth welfare. In addition, the Kinderschutzbund offers constant homework supervision for elementary school children and teaches them how to have fun while learning.

A Draum! ?
Ich habe das Messer heute bekommen, Seriennummer 385. Auf gut Fränggisch A Draum. (Ein Traum, für die Nichtfranken)
Die Damastklinge ist sehr schön, auch schön scharf direkt aus der Schachtel. Habe sie gleich an einer harten Salami ausprobieren müssen.
Die blauen Griffschalen mit den Messingbacken passen optimal dazu, die Verarbeitung, wie gewohnt, top.
Wir leben teilweise in Frankreich, und im französischsprachigen Westafrika. Da ist es noch durchaus üblich, dass Madame und Monsieur bei Mahlzeiten im Restaurant ihre eigenen Messer verwenden. Ich bin mir sicher, dass dieses Messer auch unter den gestrengen Blicken der Herrschaften Chef(euse) de Salle, Oberkellner(in) und Sommelier(ière) Zustimmung finden wird.
Bei uns landen die Messer nicht in der Vitrine (mangels Möbelstück ?), sondern werden alle benutzt.
Let me begin with the positive ones: blue is my color ;-). I've got 015/999. I loved the typo on the site in the beginning stating that Solingen was the city of Bbabes (ROTFLOL). The Damascus made by Chad Nichols is simple but quite stunningly well made. It is eye candy. The bolster is made of brass and luckily not pollished but brushed (no finger prints on the backside).. The liners are also brass. Fot its price it out performs higher priced knives.
The down part (not a 10) is that it is a slip joint. I dislike slipjoints because they are hard to open with one hand (you can open this withone hand with the proper technique). I know it makes it sellable in more countries but I really dislike slip joints.
