Pros: Handle Material, Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness
Classy, old-school feel
I have always wanted to own a Boker so I pulled the trigger on this one. I was a little reluctant as there is a 2 year old you tube video showing some flaws on the construction of this model. The company must have taken note because the knife I received has good weight, great color in the stag handle, a tight fit and finish & a sharp blade. Since the knife is narrower, than say, a Benchmade, the thumb stud really does not help a whole lot when trying to open the blade with one hand. BUT, if it is getting a little dark outside, and you need to open up the blade without looking (for whatever reason) you can easily due so by simply feeling where the thumb stud is. Plus, for me, this is the PERFECT size EDC to fit in my pocket. The knife has enough "substance" but still feels like it is not even in your pocket. I like the classy, old-school feel with the stag handle. If the looks and features of this knife are what you are looking for I would definitely recommend buying one of these beauties.
