Over the years, the knife market has seen numerous survival knives with hollow handles. Many of those can only be regarded as mere show pieces due to lacking stability. However, Newton Martin from Martin Knives from Texas developed a construction which is virtually indestructible despite the screwed tang and handle. Extreme bending tests with fixed blade have permanently deformed the blade before any kind of weak points were noticeable at the point of connection.
International experts have been very enthusiastic about the presentation of these custom knives and we are now extremely proud to present this successfull concept by Martin Knives as excusive Boker Plus products. The massive blade has a thickness of 6.6 mm and is made of 440C stainless steel. The construction of the handle provides an entirely water-proof compartment inside the handle for the safe storage of additional equipment (not included).
The cord wrapping of the handle not only increases the grip but also provides several precious meters of stable rope in case of an emergency. Due to the milled checkering, the handle also provides a safe amount of grip in various conditions without the wrapping. The prominent handguard enhances the secure handling of the knife. Handle and blade have a matt, non-reflective blasted finish. A knife without compromise, ready for any kind of adventure! Comes with black high-quality leather sheath.
