Mini Lockback, African Thuya Wood
Nobody could have predicted, 30 years ago, that the Ulrich Look designed Böker Lockback, it would enjoy three decades of success as one of the most popular and stable knives in the Böker lineup. While many designs in the knife industry enjoy a limited run, losing steam after a few years, the Böker Lockback keeps chugging along, not affected by trends or fashions so common today. The new Böker Mini Lockback breaks with this tradition—while not changing the design—provides a smaller, more pocket-friendly version that plays to its strength primarily as a compact everyday companion. With a blade length of 2¼”, the Böker Mini Lockback also has a significantly lower profile, yet is just as rugged and durable as its big brother. Böker utilizes N690 for the blade steel, which they have successfully employed in recent years on a wide range of their knives. In addition, the nickel silver bolsters are CNC machined for greater precision.
