    even decade ago, here in Indonesia there’s a gangs called solingen armed with kitchen knife with fork symbols, and everyone with solingen kitchen knife is gangsta.

    OK this is on my visitors list along with Bach’s birth place and Posen.

    147 👎? I guess that’s the number of people that pitched this idea to discovery channel and they said no! Lol! 😂🤣 What a video! Not only about knives but about your career…, the kid said, no university for me. I’m here through an apprentice program. That’s refreshing! The man even said, we have those knife nuts working for us. Here in USA we teach that without university you are nothing. 🤦🏻‍♂️ Good job guys! New sub here!

    Great trip Zac. I have hope for positivity but a bit sad that this is prepandemic . I’d love to visit this nice town.



  7. hodong kang on October 27, 2021 at 5:55 pm

    in my country they sell boker knife only 4 dollar. is it fake boker?



  8. Brian Stanaland on October 27, 2021 at 5:55 pm

    WOW! I just watched all 4 seasons of Black Sails which takes place in 1715. It’s amazing to think that some of the tools actually used then could have been Boker.

    Germany as a region contributed a lot to the martial history of the western world.



  10. pat welch on October 27, 2021 at 5:57 pm

    What a crock !!!!!! Asians have had sleeve and belt knives for 2000 years…Liers

  12. Adiii on October 27, 2021 at 6:00 pm

    I like that the youngster found his passion through a swiss victorinox and went to work for one of the best german brands!

  18. Dimi on October 27, 2021 at 6:07 pm

    300 years exp and still making trash knives, damn some people never learn!



  19. 0m3n on October 27, 2021 at 6:08 pm

    That’s absolutely amazing they have kids doing apprenticeship. Wish more companies would do that



  20. Jeremiah Thomas on October 27, 2021 at 6:12 pm

    I know what my next knife purchase will be.



  21. z ga on October 27, 2021 at 6:13 pm

  22. الماسة الزرقاء ساعات bluediamondwatch on October 27, 2021 at 6:15 pm

  23. Derek Brown on October 27, 2021 at 6:16 pm

    I love to show my boker knifes to my German family members and then have them watch this video to understand the awesome history behind them!



  24. Tom John Wolff on October 27, 2021 at 6:17 pm

  26. thehotboxyoutube on October 27, 2021 at 6:19 pm

    They do good work



  27. Soggy Cracker on October 27, 2021 at 6:19 pm

    And here we are a year later, Boker is moving the last of production overseas. So… No longer a German company.



  28. Sean Wieland on October 27, 2021 at 6:21 pm

    Don’t mention the war! 😉



  29. G3 FPV on October 27, 2021 at 6:23 pm

    great video



  33. Thomas Chainey on October 27, 2021 at 6:26 pm

    Great video thanks



  34. Cid1 on October 27, 2021 at 6:26 pm

    Older than most knife makers in the United States. More like older than the United States itself,would be a better way to put it..



  35. Chiefs Hotline on October 27, 2021 at 6:27 pm

    Dang fellas, nice job on the edit



  36. sally posey on October 27, 2021 at 6:29 pm

    Guys. What a fantastic video. Makes me want to go to bladehq and buy a boker



  37. Chris Markey on October 27, 2021 at 6:32 pm

    Oh crap. Boker is becoming my new favorite knife brand.



  38. Joan Sativo on October 27, 2021 at 6:33 pm

    Nice work guys.

    My favorite item in my collection is a fixed boker plus caracal in D2, sick blade.

    Also, their catalog is enormous, if you could open a shop and sell all the boker knives, the shop would have to be BIG.

    They use so many handle materials and designs you cannot get bored of this brand.



  39. stepitup on October 27, 2021 at 6:33 pm

    When I was a young man in Tennessee, I used to go to the town square in Murfreesboro and hang out with the old men sitting on the bench next to the old Civil War canons.They would whittle all day long on cedar sticks. I asked one of the men one day what he was making. He said, "Im making little sticks out of big ones"! As I sat there, these men were constantly asking the same question of anyone that came up to be around them…What kind of pocket knife do you have? If you didn’t pull out a Boker knife from your pocket, you had better not pull anything out of it. It was Boker or trash. Thats where my love for Boker began. This was a sweet video. Thanks



  40. remruata pachuau on October 27, 2021 at 6:33 pm

    I’ve got one boker



  41. RT REuuhh on October 27, 2021 at 6:34 pm

    I wander if they were ever associated with Nazis and if the Boker Family in Mexico fled there after there defeat to escape there war crimes.



  42. Tim Summers on October 27, 2021 at 6:35 pm

    Absolutely great!!!! The only thing Blade HQ could have done better is to pronounce the name of the city they went to correctly. The city is called ‘Solingen’. The German guy was pronouncing something like "Soling", and I’m positive Americans can say that too.



  43. The Odyssey on October 27, 2021 at 6:38 pm

    Blade Hq: It’ll be interesting what they will be doing 150 years from know

    Me: Isn’t it obvious, Light saber knifes .



  44. John Milik on October 27, 2021 at 6:38 pm

    You definitely showed the best bit of Solingen surrounding area and inside the factory. The city is pretty grim. I visited with my family. We were a 3 hr drive away and just went so I could visit the Boker store and the Zwillings shop you should try and get in the factories of some of the other makers in the city.



  45. MIKO TEEVEE on October 27, 2021 at 6:41 pm

    wow thank you for making this documentary.. i’m just starting collection of knives.. and I just got my 1st Boker knife… its a kalashnikov XL and it so awesome to hold and play with haha… now i know I got a very nice knife with rich history on it… good job sir…



  46. Henry Darr on October 27, 2021 at 6:42 pm

    Yes Great video !
    Now to choose a Boker that I want !



  47. izkormvach on October 27, 2021 at 6:42 pm

    Sorry, but that "SolinJen" pronunciation really hurt my ears! Thanks for the video!👍



  48. Belial on October 27, 2021 at 6:42 pm

    Y’all changed my mind on Boker! Effers know how to get into my wallet. 😂



  49. Brian Cullen on October 27, 2021 at 6:43 pm

    Feels like an advert



  50. Phill Pickle on October 27, 2021 at 6:43 pm
