In 1915, year two of the First World War, BÖKER received an order from the War Ministry to develop a compact combat knife for military use.
Until then, conscripts had had to defend themselves with auxiliary weapons that were made in makeshift workshops and field forges. These included knife-like shortened bayonets. In trench warfare, for example, the grip guard was used as a brass knuckle. In trench warfare, the armament was not adequate to the requirements. In trench warfare, long weapons were a hindrance and at the same time a danger to fellow soldiers.
Here is a unique piece in the form of a driving knife with a carbon content of 0.7-0.8%, which guarantees great edge retention. Provided it is cared for accordingly. This is because the digging dagger is a faithful reissue of the original combat knife, thus it is not stainless.
The handle scales are ribbed, which improves the grip. To prevent the hand from slipping on the back of the blade, a stainless steel handle guard is installed. The tree carved into the blade is testimony to the dagger's origin.
Care means do not leave in water and clean immediately after use. Oil the wood as well as the blade from time to time, also sharpen carefully as needed. For safe keeping, a leather scabbard with push button and possibility for belt attachment is included.
The payment service provider PayPal has asked us, Messer Rödter, Hof, as well as other German dealers, to stop selling weapons. Otherwise, PayPal would terminate the business relationship.
Although many of our customers use Messer and PayPal, we had to react immediately after a PayPal block.
It is now the case that we continue to sell special knives, but do not settle them via PayPal.
We are convinced to act in your interest with this.
From now on, jumping knives can only be settled via bank transfer, cash on delivery, pickup in the store or credit card.
