Though on the german site, this is the standard one they are selling. Text says coated carbon steel SK5.
I may also add that they still make a lot of their knives in their site here in germany. If the blade says "Böker" or "Böker Plus", chances are it's made in Germany.
It clearly states on other sights that this is a Taiwanese import, just as many of the other Boker Plus knives. The M3 Fighting Knife (also made in the USA from good 1095 steel) that is made by Boker is also Taiwanese and costs almost twice at retail of the OKC version.
I honestly haven't seen a single Boker knife lately that was any quality at all and for the record SK5 is the same as 1085, a cheaper more cost effective carbon steel than 1095/1095CV but SK5 is frequently lauded as some super steel and it isn't. There is no reason for a knife made of cheap SK5/1085 to cost more than one made of good 1095/1095CV.
There are also no restrictions to a double edged knife in Canadian law.
