Appaloosa mean tough, dependable, spirited. This series of traditional pocket knives is dedicated to the famous Appaloosa horse. Characterized by their incredible strength and stamina, these horses can be distinguished by their unique coloring -- various shades of brown and white, in the form of irregular spots. This was the inspiration for the beautifully structured bone handles chosen for this series. The dark and light spots on the scales make each knife truly unique. Boker has also designed a special new Boker shield, exclusively for this premium series. Blades are made of C-75 carbon steel. Made in Germany.
