The cut and polished shells of the pearl oysters were once a common currency material and have been used in the manufacture of jewelry for a long time. The booklets of the Böker Mother of Pearl are made of imitation mother-of-pearl and, in contrast to the natural material, are very robust. The shimmering handle harmonises beautifully with the partial gilding of the back of the blade and the shear. The extra hollow and wall-ground blade in the size 6/8 inch is made of classic non-rustproof carbon steel. With an authentic Böker stamp in the blade barrel, certificate of authenticity and historical packaging. Handmade in the Böker knife factory in Solingen.
