Borka Blades Custom Knife

Sebastijan Berenji, the creative mind behind Borka Blades, may be the new kid on the block, but, in the few years since his knives appeared on the scene, he has developed a loyal following due to his unique approach to designing robust and exquisite tactical knives. Here are five reasons why we love Borka Blades Custom knives.

1. Unique Aesthetics

Borka blades are designed with a wicked aesthetic that intimidates even the toughest knife enthusiast. Berenji designs knives that are functional, beautiful, and unique. The simple blades are complemented by elaborate handles and sophisticated multi-edge blades that fold neatly inside sleek, slim handles.

2. High-Quality Materials

Borka Blades knives are constructed using the highest quality steel to give the blades a razor-sharp finish. Most models use M390 steel, which is a new super steel alloy developed by Bohler-Uddeholm. It offers exceptional corrosion resistance and minimizes wear on the blade for a knife that will look pristine even after heavy-duty use. Some of Berenji’s most recent designs feature blades constructed from CPM-154 steel, which provides better edge retention and is chip-resistant.

Borka Blades knife handles are just as beautiful as their blades and often use unusual materials such as white stingray skin combined with leather to achieve a unique look that stands out from the crowd.

3. Attention to Detail

One of the features of any Borka Blades knife is the intricate detailing that goes into every design, from hand-rubbed blades to achieve glossy satin perfection to TRD coated handles etched with tribal patterns, to elaborate cord-wrapped handles that are not only beautiful but also provide incredible grip. Each knife comes with the Borka Blades logo etched discreetly on the blade so you can be assured of quality construction.

4. Hard Wearing

Borka Blades may be beautiful, but they are also fantastic blades for tactical use and EDC. Borka Blades folding knives have a smooth mechanism for easy deployment and good hold, so you don’t need to worry about the blade closing on your fingers. The fixed blade knives are constructed from durable high-tech super steel to withstand even the most punishing tasks.

5. Luxe Accessories

For knives this pretty, you need beautiful sheaths and pouches to protect and care for them. EveryBorka Blades knife comes with a carefully designed protective case that is custom made to complement the design of the knife.

Borka Blades Custom Knife

  • SBK-L

Many everyday carriers are choosing to carry fixed blade knivesfor increased reliability, and the Borka Blades SBK-L is a tactical fixed blade knife that won’t let you down.

The M390 stainless steel blade is resistant to corrosion and wear so it can stand up to the toughest EDC tasks and still retain its edge. The 3.5-inch blade length keeps it within legal limits for most states that allow EDC, while still maintaining optimal functionality. The cord-wrapped handle perfectly balances comfort and grip, while the intricate woven pattern adds an aesthetic appeal to the knife design.

  • SBD

The Borka Blades SBD double-edge knife draws inspiration from classical Japanese knife design with features such as a leather tuska overlaid on white stingray and a Borka Blades menuki mounted under the wrap.

The overall length of the knife comes in at 9-inches and weighs 5.5 ounces, giving you a lightweight knife that still offers some heft. The blade is 4.5 inches of hand-rubbed M390 steel that has a subtle satin finish, and it comes with a hand-crafted leather sheath with a clip to hold the wicked blade securely.

  • Shylock

The Shylock knife is a collaboration between two of the best names in the business, Sebastijan Berenji of Borka Blades and Mike Bond of Bond knives. The result of this team-up is a monster of a knife with a unique blade pattern and an otherworldly handle design that uses advanced techniques to achieve delicate patterns which both enhance grip and look breathtaking on display.

The blade is 3.75-inch CPM-154 steel, which is etched along the blade face toward the spine and comes in a satin finish. The handle is titanium, which has been coated using thermo reactive diffusion and then etched with a tribal design that appears both bronze or deep brown, depending on the light.
