The new Boker Washboard Bone Trapper isn’t a mainstay in the Boker lineup. It only appears occasionally, and we just love it. Matter of fact, if you do a quick search for Boker model 2525 and you’ll notice they tend to both sell and hold their value well. This knife harkens back to the old days when the only pocketknife was a slipjoint pocketknife and just about everyone carried one in their pocket.
The Washboard jigging pattern reminds us a bit of a more symmetrical ram’s horn, and we know by looking at older models that it will age beautifully. We also love how the colors in this knife vary between a dark coffee and a light toffee color. It has a good fit and finish and an amazing feel in hand. The bone handles are mounted on brass liners and secured with nickel silver pins. It has mirror polished, nickel silver bolsters. It’s accented by a nickel silver Boker Solingen shield.
This knife has 3.25” carbon steel clip and spey blades that open with a nail nick. There’s a frosted “Boker Tree Brand Classic” blade etch on the main clip point blade. It’s 4.25” closed and weighs about 4 ounces.
