Even in the world of high-tech materials like powder metallurgical steel, composites like carbon or G10 and technical materials such as titanium or zirconium, classic pocket knives are still enjoying unabated popularity. Traditional designs like the Trapper, Scout, Barlow or Boker's sporting knives have always been valued tools for everyday use and garner fans of all ages. With the Classic Gold series, Boker is offering a deliberate counterpoint to blades of a more modern make; with their laser engraved logo, these blades are certainly state-of-the-art but don't necessarily exude vintage charm. For the Classic Gold series, we came back to classic craftsmanship, finishing the blades with genuine classic gold etching that used to be common for high-quality knives. Highlighting their sophisticated appearance, the knives in this series have scales made from select pieces of desert ironwood, which is not just very sturdy but also offers a rather elegant look. The design is finished with a classic Boker logo in the handle scale. All in all, the Classic Gold series reaches into the past, bringing it back to life in a tangible way.
The Boker Classic Gold Barlow pocket knife features a fine ground 440C blade, gold etching, nickel silver bolsters and a slipjoint (non-locking) mechanism.

While it was still a high-end steel several decades ago, 440C is a very decent middle-grade steel today. Many users still see it as the perfect "magical trifecta" of edge retention, corrosion resistance and easy sharpening.
