BO01BO351: Boker Plus A2 42 Folding Knife

Boker Plus

Many times before, South Africa has demonstrated that it belongs to the great nations of custom knife makers. André van Heerden and André Thorburn have a worldwide following for their elegant and refined designs, and the A2 42 represents their first collaboration. Boker immediately fell in love with the concept, which is a great fit for their portfolio. They are therefore delighted to present to you the Boker Plus A2 42. The blue anodized titanium liners hold 3D milled G10 scales and a clip that is also 3D milled from G10. The blade is forged from VG10, while the dynamic grind gives it a look that uniquely combines elegance and power. The fine horizontal satin finish on the blade enhances the character of the A2 42 as much as the spacer, which is also milled from G10. The nail nick facilitates fast and convenient deployment, which is further enhanced with the IKBS ball bearing system. The A2 42 is a very balanced design that will attract those who enjoy gentlemen's knives or elegant pocket knives.

Much better than many reviews had be believing.
It's hard to put this into a category. A large hefty pocketknife. But it is beautiful. If were not so thick and made with the same materials I would call it a gentleman's knife. The handles made of a very nicely textured G10 makes for a solid grip in hard use. I am going to list the things I got from reviews that kept me from considering this sooner and my take:1. Sharp edges. Really? the only place there are what could be considered "sharp" are the liners where the lock bar is. And if you use knives, I don't think you would consider this sharp. This side of the liner's edges are not rounded, the rest of the knife's edges are.2. Lack of cut out to access liner lock bar. Come on, that would take away from the classic aesthetics of the knife. I have zero problem disengaging the lock bar. (this one kind of made me laugh)3. G10 pocket clip. I found the G10 pocket clip to be superior to many of the steel clips on knives costing more. Easy to use, the edges are rounded and although there is little to no spring to it, it works very well. I have been carrying it in a jacket pocket with no issues.4. VG10 blade. I like VG10, it is durable enough for me and sharpens so much easier than many modern super steels. Am I lacking in sharpening skills, probably... That is why I like VG10 steel.This knife is pleasing to the eye. If you have large (to extra-large) hands it fits really well. Operates oh so smoothly due to the bearings. Has blue titanium liners, intricately 3D milled G10 scales, full length G10 back spacer and a nicely milled G10 clip. All this makes for a good looking and useful knife for me. It's hefty but not what I would consider bulky, just adds to the great feel of it. I got it on sale at reduced cost and to me it was a no brainer to purchase, great value.
