For the 2021 Annual Damascus Collector's Knife we have chosen the popular Boker Trapper Uno, which is a perfect everyday companion due to its extremely narrow design and which owes its name to the American Rangers of the settler era. In the traditional version, the knife is equipped with upper and lower bolsters, whereas the Trapper Uno goes without the bolsters at the end of the handle.
The noble collector's version is equipped with a blade of stainless Damascus by Chad Nichols, forged by hand in the Ripple pattern. It is opened by nail nick and does not lock. The unusual handle scales are made of domestic blue-stabilized curly maple wood, which has a unique striped transverse pattern. In combination with the decorative brass bolsters, this creates the colours of the city of Solingen. The bolster on the front of the knife also features the well-known city coat of arms.
While two crossed swords are intended to emphasise the importance of the City of Blades as the place of origin of high-quality cutlery, the anchor is considered the symbol of St. Clement, who has been venerated as the patron saint of the city since the 10th century. Handmade in the Boker Knife Manufactory in Solingen and strictly limited to 999 pieces worldwide. With noble floating display, certificate of authenticity and individual serial number.
Ten euro of the proceeds from each knife sold will be donated to to the Kinderschutzbund Solingen, which has been actively supporting needy children and parents in our city for over 40 years. Especially children suffer from the great economic and social challenges that have arisen and grown due to the worldwide pandemic also here in Solingen. The attentive social workers advise families under the motto "help for self-help" and relieve parents in difficult situations with their competence and expertise. In the Solingen clothing store, the Kinderschutzbund also sells well-preserved toys, books and clothes for babies, children and adults. All proceeds are used to support current projects as well as child and youth welfare. In addition, the Kinderschutzbund offers constant homework supervision for elementary school children and teaches them how to have fun while learning.
