Description
BO01BO170: Boker Plus Epicenter
Boker Plus
 
The Epicenter was designed by Todd Rexford, a young knifemaker from Colorado, who is a remarkable talent in the world of knife design. In addition to our successful Boker Plus line, this model represents a significant innovative step. Being the first titanium frame lock, this piece reaches a special status within our knife range. The massive titanium plates have a thickness of 5 mm, and are contoured three-dimensionally, offering outstanding performance and stability. Equally impressive is the blasted titanium surface and the finish of the handle (without protruding edges), which make the knife not only a sturdy usable knife, but also a beautiful collector's piece. The modified satin drop point blade is made of VG-10 steel, and features a removable double-sided thumb stud. The titanium pocket clip is reversible, allowing tip-up or tip-down carry, and the lanyard hole adds convenience. An impressive synthesis of technology and design! Blade length: 3 1/2". Overall length: 8 3/8". Weight: 6.5 oz.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Pocket Clip, None
Cons: Overall Quality, Lock Type, Handle Material, Weight, Lock Ease of Use
Perfect Rexford Design Flawed by China Quality.
this is possibly the most smooth in hand knife in my collection, perhaps to smooth & slippery, the Tod Rexford design is as good as it gets! but its being TOTALLY FAILED by Boker China Quality. i never head a knife in which the liner or frame lock traveled inward so fast to the point of after couple of months the frame lock failed completely! and that came after frame lock was very sticky since it was new. does not worth even half of its demanded price due to MAJOR CONSTRUCTION & LOCK FLAWS. 100% Lock failure!

Pros: Lock Type, Blade Material, Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Pocket Clip, Weight, Ease of Opening
Nice, but a bit specialized
This knife is nicely designed, and is built like a tank! But, it is not an everyday carry knife. It is too bulky, and quite heavy, so there is no way that I would carry it around in my pocket. It would be very well suited for camping/hunting/skinning. Very strong lock up, and a really tough (and thick!) blade. So just be aware that this is a VERY heavy duty pocket knife.

AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE
I have been burned by boker in the past, but the knife was attractive enough to give it a shot. First impressions are everything and this knife came from knife center out of a "safety sealed" box covered in fingerprints and with a pocket clip that swings like a pendulum. I tried to used the, included, torx head adjustment tool to tighten the screws fastening the clip to the frame, and wouldn't you know it, they rounded out. Why make a knife out of quality materials like VG10 and titanium if you are just going to use sub par parts to fasten them together. Never again, Boker! Never AGAIN!!!!
