This Boker Tree Brand knife is based on the 700 Series Auto of days gone by. The 714 Leverlock features brass liners, nickel silver bolsters and black G10 scales. The blade is 440C stainless steel with a satin finish and a nail nick. You won't need the nail nick because this knife has been converted to an automatic. Push the lever down and the blade deploys rapidly. This is an excellent knife that you're sure to enjoy!
