This is a large survival/combat knife. I put "survival" first because it really is configured to work as a survival tool or a bushcraft knife. The blade is massive and the waterproof compartment in the handle is very well made. If you were stranded with one tool, this one would be a great choice. Over the years, the knife market has seen numerous survival knives with hollow handles. Many of which can only be regarded as mere show pieces, due to a lack of stability. However, Newton Martin from Texas has developed a construction which is virtually indestructible, despite the screwed tang and handle. Extreme bending tests with this fixed blade have permanently deformed the blade before any kind of weak points were noticeable at the point of connection. International experts have been highly enthusiastic about the presentation of these custom knives, and now we are extremely proud to present this successful concept by Martin Knives as an exclusive Boker Plus product. The massive blade has a thickness of 6mm, and is made of high performance 440C stainless steel. The construction of the handle provides an entirely waterproof compartment inside the handle, for the safe storage of additional equipment (not included). The cord wrapping of the handle not only increases the grip but also provides several valuable meters of stable rope in case of an emergency. Due to the milled checkering, the handle also provides a safe amount of grip in various conditions without the wrapping. The prominent handguard enhances the secure handling of the knife. The handle and blade have a matte, non-reflective blasted finish. A knife without compromise, ready for any adventure! Includes a high quality black leather sheath.

Great product
I purchased this knife in December of 2013. Booker knives have been a family favorite for over one hundred years but I became concerned when the products started manufacturing in Asia. I worried that quality would suffer. There was basis for this but the concern was there. This knife has reassured me that all is well with Boker. This knife is extremely well made, quite durable well designed. I have found only a few faults but they are not related to knife itself but factors external to it. The flimsy sheath needs to be replaced as it is too cheaply made and does not keep in step with the quality knife it holds. This is remedied by replacing it with another. I am fortunate to have a contact that makes kydex holsters for guns and he made one for this particular knife for me. This allows me carry it inverted on my chest when carrying a hiking rig. The problem for me was the line wrapping on the handle. Once it comes off you will never get it wrapped like was when it was shipped New. My advice: Get the leather tape for baseball bat handles. The chickering on the handle underneath the paracord is nice but to avoid fatigue in use you need something to absorb the shock or impact. For the money this is the best deal in useful knives. This is not a "safe queen" as we refer to as guns kept in a safe for show only. I have waited three years to write this review because I wanted to be sure my review was accurate and on target.

The knife is what you would think a hollow handle knife should be. The grinds are close to perfect, and the blade came sharp. I manga to fit in the hollow handle 13 water prof matches with striker, one button compass, a fishing kit with 4 hooks, 3 sinkers and 3 links and of course fishing wire.I also put snit wire and one Cotten ball with some room fi you really push it. The knife is extremely well built with quite a bit of weight. The sheath I received was decent and not a total disappointment as some reviews mentioned. They may have improved the quality of the sheath not sure. Over all a great addition to my collection if you are interested in a hollow handle knife you will not be disappointed. I hope this review helps thank you.
