The Leopard Damascus is forged out of the German battle tank Leopard I. This specialty steel is not available to the market because it was only used for the military. Our Damascus forger was fortunate to acquire some for Boker exclusively. A chromium-manganese and vanadium tool steel alloy was added to this extremely wear-resistant barrel steel. The result is a remarkably high hardness for Damascus steel (61-63 HRC). The pattern provided on the blade is labeled "Small Pyramid". Handle material is 6061-T6 aluminum and features Ziricote wood inlays. Knife includes certificate of authenticity and gift box. Serialized.
