Böker knife Damastmesser Tirpitz battle ship, for collectors ww2

In a spectacular action for Böker, Norwegian divers recovered parts of the armor of the German battleship Tirpitz. The steel parts were in surprisingly good condition thanks to the cold and pressure. The mighty blade made of 300-layer Damascus with the "Great Pyramid" pattern was forged from these well-preserved steel parts. Boker made an extremely durable blade with a hardness of 61HRC from the combination of Tirpitz steel and carbon tool steel. The blade bounces very powerfully and without play. An attractive hard-coat anodized handle made of high-strength light metal gives the knife a very good feel in addition to a beautiful design. Grip inlay made of selected, local walnut wood with the original coat of arms of the battleship. With a functional, adjustable belt clip (tip-up/tip-down). Hardcoat-anodised handle made of high-strength light alloy. With adjustable belt clip (tip-up/tip-down). With consecutive serial number and collector's box with certificate. A very special piece that makes history tangible. The thumb studs are screwed.

A piece of history comes to life! The Tirpitz, sister ship of the legendary Bismarck, was the largest battleship ever launched for the German Navy. After the commissioning in February 1941, the Tirpitz soon became a permanent threat for the Western Allies? Navy in the Northern Atlantic. History tells of many attempts to destroy this mighty weapon-loaded colossus. After the Tirpitz was heavily damaged by air attacks from the British Royal Air Force in September 1944, the ship was placed stationary at the Norwegian coast at Tromsö. Once again, the Tirpitz was the primary target for heavy attacks of the Royal Air Force. Then, on November 12. 1944, the Tirpitz was hit by special "Tallboy bombs", which caused the ship to roll over in the shallow water.
