Boker

Few custom knifemakers have had such an influence on the tactical knife scene as William H. "Bill" Harsey. His designs have developed an impeccable reputation in the world of tactical knives. His custom versions are difficult to obtain. And now, Boker is grateful and proud to announce a collaboration with Mr. Harsey, resembling the legendary Applegate-Fairbain dagger. The Harsey 5.5 is in use with several elite units around the world, and will be enhanced with modern features, to create a highly functional knife concept. The blade length provides the perfect compromise between utility and easy of carry. The expanded width and improved geometry of the double-edged, bead blasted 440C high performance steel blade immensely improve its cutting capabilities. The extended tang doubles as a glass-breaker, and the CNC machined handles, crafted of green canvas Micarta, are extremely durable and comfortable, providing a secure grip even in wet conditions. This piece comes complete with a foliage green premium tactical sheath, manufactured by Spec-Ops Brand (USA), which can be mounted in various positions and has a pouch on top, for other gear (such as a multi-tool). Blade length: 5 1/2". Overall length: 10 5/8". Weight: 8.5 oz. Knife made in Solingen, Germany. Sheath made in USA.

Cons: Blade Material, None
Boker Dagger
Great design and super comfortable grip. Have it attached to a tactical vest, comes with solid sheath. Clearly only designed for combat. Why the hell anyone would use a double edged dagger for hunting/bushcraft/survival purposes is beyond me. Not a huge fan of 440 ss, but since this is purely for defense in a combat setting, it will never see any real use and can be sharpened to a crazy sharp edge.

Daggers are for stabbing
Had a good look at this handsome blade, while contemplating to stretch my visa. This blade is designed for stabbing only, nothing else. The blade length of 5.5 inches is enough to reach kidneys, liver or heart/lungs in a Homo sapiens. Not sure about the toughness of 440C to prevent point breakage, in case some dummie stabs it in wood and tries to wrench it out. Most of these blades will land up in a collectors cabinet, where they probably belong. If you live in the USA, this might be a liability to carry. It might give you false self confidence. Remember the phrase: DO NOT BRING A KNIFE TO A GUNFIGHT.

Its a dagger.
Im guessing this blade would excell at its designed task. I enjoy owning it a great deal. Why the h#ll someone would buy this for a hunting and utility blade then complain is beyond me. Its a dagger.
