Nice gentleman's knife

THE GOOD
This is a sweet little gentleman's knife. I tend to like this kind of design, so it works for me. You can easily carry this in an office without scaring the hell out of your co-workers when you pull it from your pocket.

The blade has a satin finish, and the bolsters also are nicely finished. The pocket clip is "tip up," and holds the knife securely in your pocket. I wonder if a black clip might seem more unobtrusive.

The thumb stud is well positioned. It is slightly too tall, because it often catches on the edge of my pocket when I try to slip the knife in and under the clip.

The blade release is a small button. It's in a similar position as the release button on the Boker Kalashnikov.

There is no jimping on the blade, but considering the type of knife it is, that's OK.

THE BAD
Being a knife made in China, it typically arrived with issues:
- The action on this knife was gritty. I disassembled it, cleaned and lubricated. Now, it flips open and closes cleanly.
- The wood scales sit slightly below all of the corners of all four bolsters, which have very sharp edges. I sanded down the corners of the bolsters..
- There were still metal shavings around the exit points of the screw holes.
- The edge of the knife isn't uniformly sharp. It's sharp near the tip and near the base but not in the middle.

These are all correctable items. They should have been handled during assembly, but I believe that the Chinese factory worker has little incentive to take those extra steps, because he or she gets paid the same whether the knife is perfect or not.

There is no such thing as worker pride when you work for the contract company and the emphasis is only quantity, not quality. Boker apparently has no quality control in place. Or very little, it seems.

This is a nice knife, as are most Boker knives. It would be even nicer if I didn't always have to do the last 2-10% of the work myself.

We'll start with the unboxing. It came in a black box with the Boker Plus logo. The black box came with a sticker sealing it, which was a little scary to open, considering I didn't want to damage the box. Once the sticker was cut, it was revealed that a magnet held it shut, and once it was opened the knife was nicely presented with an Alan key underneath in a plastic baggy. There was a piece of foam with a cutout of the knife that held it in place, and another underneath with no cutout to protect the other side. Overall, the presentation of this knife was a positive experience.
The knife itself is very pleasing to the eye. The cocobolo wood inlays are very nice looking, although you can feel a difference in height between the bolsters and the wood. Which brings me to my next thing, the bolsters. The bolsters look amazing, with a semi-gloss or matte finish, although not glossy like the push button. They match the pocket clip perfectly, as they are both titanium. The pocket clip is tip up only, and right hand carry only. Overall, no complaints on the handle.
Now the blade, the blade has the same "Boker Plus" logo as on the box. The blade came shaving sharp, and I love the curved shape of the ricasso. On the spine of the blade is the production number, and on the other side behind the thumbstud is the blade steel. The thumbstud is small but looks good on a small knife like this. Although I do have one problem with the knife that makes it annoying to carry. The thumbstud on the pocket clip side of the blade is taller than the handle, meaning when you go to put it in your pocket, it runs into your pants, making you have to use two hands to pull your jeans over the thumbstud. At first I thoughts no big deal, it came with an alan key so I can just take the thumbstud off, as advertised in the paper it came with. So I got my alan key to take it off, but the fit of the alan key to the pocket clip was too loose, and it stripped the thumbstud so now it won't come off. These are the two reasons why I feel this knife does not deserve 5 stars.
You can flick the knife out really easily, and you can close it one handed with the lock, but it requires a bit of skill to flick it closed. The button is glossy as I said above, and is very easy to actuate.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this knife to anyone who wants a nice little gentleman's folder, as that was the reason I purchased this.
Great knife

I have mostly Benchmade knifes and really like the axis lock but this knife has a solid lock up and the push button lock that this has is just as solid and as much fun to play with. The wood and polished steel is really sharp looking and gets a nice pateina after being carried.
