As an expert on fixed blade outdoor knives of all sizes, Tom Krein based his Bushcraft XL on the classic straight lines of Bushcraft knives, giving us an extremely handy and versatile knife for any outdoor activity. The continuous choil ensures rugged blade geometry and simplifies resharpening. The orange G10 scales keep it visible, and are complemented with black fiber underlays. The blade steel is high performance 440C stainless steel. Includes Kydex sheath and belt adapter.

Boker Plus Bushcraft XL
I really like the Boker Plus Bushcraft XL knife. Good sturdy knife, takes a good edge, the right size for my use, feels good in the hand and a secure grip. The scabbard is another thing. I do like the small kydex scabbard itself and it carries well in my pocket. The belt clip that came with it is another thing. Best advice for the clip is to pitch it and look for something else. I could only find one orientation in which the clip could be screwed to the scabbard and I didn't like the way it carried and the clip stuck out a lot. I kept at it and finally drilled extra holes in the clip for mounting and cut away most of it and left just a little finger of material to keep the scabbard from sliding through when I carry it under my belt. I can still carry it in my pocket but will have to make an adapter to hang it from my belt

Very Nice
Hard to fault this knife. Very well made, and sturdy, as a bushcraft knife should be. Have been camping with it, and it performed beyond expectations. The sheath is a bit light weight, but at this price, I can't complain. Look forward to using it over the summer.

Solid Mid-range Bushcraft
In brief - this is a good, hard-working bushcraft knife that I am happy to own and will remain eager to use when the opportunities are present. This knife is priced at the lower end of the mid-range bushcrafters available, and considering that it's a full tang with G10 handle and Kydex sheath the value increases. That said, the finishing is not perfect. The G10 is not completely flush beside the pins and there is a very small space between the tang and one of the scales in one spot. As these do not affect my use of the knife (there is absolutely no discomfort in the grip because of these issues) the imperfect finishing does not bother me. Initially though, I was disappointed by this. The sheath, while a thermoform plastic, is a lighter weight version of what I expected. Still, it's functional, holds the knife very securely, and as I said increases the value of this purchase. Expect to work the sheath a bit as it comes out of the box to make extraction and sheathing smoother. I've had the knife for a month and operation with the sheath is now very smooth. My order came sharp out of the box and took a razor-sharp edge after minimal sharpening and light stropping. I've taken it out on one excursion (after my sharpening) during which it performed well making a pot hook, as a baton, and producing feather sticks after a substantial beating. I was intentionally hard on the blade and am only pleased, even surprised by how much I enjoyed using it. This is one of the most comfortable knives in hand; after two hours of nearly constant use, my hand had not cramped and there were no hot-spots (this, without gloves). To anyone searching for a less expensive or mid-range quality bushcraft knife, I recommend the Boker Plus Bushcraft XL. I was not a fan of the blades on the less expensive Condors and could not bring myself to make that purchase. The value wasn't there for me. And I did not want to exceed $100. I opted for this one over the basic Boker Plus Bushcraft for the slightly longer blade, the blade shape, the full flat grind, and the Kydex sheath. I am not disappointed.
