Got my new boker plum wood barlow. Like it, but what's with this flaw in the metal?

    Is this common? I'm not a nitpicker...but i spent over 150$ on this. I thought the solingen/tree stamp meant only the best. Am i out of line?[​IMG]

    Welcome to the forum. My Böker Barlow has a similar mark on the tang. I never noticed it before I read this thread and looked for it.

    I have knives that have marks like that in the same place. I don't think it's a problem other than aesthetics.

    So boker support got back to me and said it looks like they forgot to polish the tang. They said if i sent it back for a replacement, they would give me the credit for the shipping and handling i would pay. I'm just going to keep it though. I'm satisfied with a mystery solved.
