This is a good import from Boker. While it may not be true 440C steel, it is close enough to provide durability under hard use. This steel, (9Cr18Mov) is a step above AUS-8 and provides a good balance between wear and corrosion resistance. It can be sharpened with relative ease, yet retain an edge so you can complete tough jobs between sharpenings. These attributes make this pocket knife a great value in a "working" pocket knife. Isn't that why you're buying it?
I was impressed with the delivery ... outer box sealed in plastic and usual nice Boker wrapping. I like the bone jigging; looks nice. Two complaints. The bevel on the large blade is very uneven; I will have to try to even it up. Where was the quality control of this China-made knife? And, It is almost impossible to open ... I have used Tuf Glide and made hundreds of open/closings. I hope with continued repeats it will free up. I notice this is a common issue in other reviews.
