The Bulldog pocket knife from Boker's Magnum line has a really solid feel. The blade is 1/8" thick and features a wide profile as well as a false edge up top. The 440 stainless steel blade is bead blast finished with a plain cutting edge. Textured black G-10 scales provide a nice grip while the steel liner lock frame inspires confidence. Pocket clip is tip-up and the handle is fitted with a lanyard hole.
As the owner of many knives, many Tops, and expensive, this is one of the best knives I ever bought. Wish it was made and sold for twice the amount with fancier handles and top-end steel. Nothing wrong with the way it is but a deluxe edition would be sweet. Really an excellent knife that is functional and feels excellent in the hand.
I love this knife! it is a good weight, sharp blade and a nice feel. it is a tough knife. it is my new favorite knife.
You may be wondering how I could give a $17 knife with 440 A steel a five star rating. Now this certainly isn’t a luxury folder this isn’t going to be the grail of your collection but what it is is a very solid beater knife with a thick blade stock, super solid lock up, sturdy construction and decent action. If you have stronger forearms you can spidy flick this pretty easily. This knife is heavy but it’s meant to be it begs to go to work and if you have any half decent sharpening system you can touch up the 440 in minutes. I’m usually a blade steel snob but I love this knife at the least you can buy it and throw it in your truck for when you don’t want to abuse your better knives.
With premium materials, this would be a $60 knife easily. Another review says "feels good in the hand" and I think that's an understatement. I can't put this thing down. I love the parallel blade and straight lines. Textured handle provides a confident grip and it's heavy. A little oil on the hinge and I can practically open it with telekinesis. It's smooth and the lockup is so solid it feels like a fixed blade. Opens and closes with a nice dull "WHACK" that satisfies me deep down in my soul. My turn-offs with this knife are the M.I.C. qualities that are just part of the price range. The satin finish had little scuffs all over it and the star-hardware was chewed to hell from assembly. Also I had a small nick in the edge halfway down the blade that I managed to sharpen out. Probably not the best heat-treat either. I'm going to test the hardness on the rockwell machine at work just to see where it's at. Still, for under $20, this is a beast of a knife and I don't anticipate any problems after having it a few weeks now. Definitely recommend this knife, but just remember it's a $20 MIC beater.
I think this knife is pretty good for the money. The day I got it it did a little tightening and added a little locktite and immediately started beating the snot out of it(Mechanic). It holds an edge and has been tight ever since. It is a cinder block. It's heavy. But, that's what i look for in a knife. It feels pretty good in the hand.
