Based on Lucas Burnley's popular design, the Mini Kwaiken has the same build as the regular Kwaiken we're all familiar with, but in a more compact, EDC-friendly size. This model has a premium VG-10 steel blade and black G-10 scales over stainless steel liners. An IKBS ball bearing pivot is standard, along with exemplary action from the flipper opener, which features jimping. The tip-up carry clip is set into the scale, for a fine finished look.

Getting dressed up and want a slick knife to compliment your look? This knife can fill those shoes. The kwaiken's blade has a beautiful profile. It's also strong, and comes to an extremely sharp point. The size is also perfect. I found the original kwaiken to be too large. Deployment is super fast due it's IKBS bearing system.
Top Grade EDC

I received my Boker Kwaiken G10 mini today from BladeHQ. The folks at BladeHQ are great and my knife actually came a day early. Free shipping was nice as well.

Many of the complaints that the kwaiken has bared include a dull blade and a poor closed design. My kwaiken came sharper than any other knife I own out of the box. I am a fan of VG10 steel and it is a nice upgrade over AUS8 on the older kwaiken. I think Boker has listened to some of the previous complaints and made it right.

This knife is also beautiful and welcoming. It isn't as scary as say a Spyderco Delica or a Benchmade mini Grip. The size and balance is top notch and it feels great in hand.

This knife is just great and is performing well above what I expected.

Yes, it is made in Taiwan however, it still is a great knife. It feels of German quality, it really does.

Get this knife and you won't regret it!
Absolutely perfect for my needs

This is the knife that so many have been asking for since Boker started making Kwaiken knives.

The design was already something that exuded class. There were bugs here and there with previous Boker Plus Kwaikens that appear to have been taken care of with this Mini Kwaiken.

The drop from a 3.5" blade to a 3" blade doesn't sacrifice any usability while making the knife much more pocket friendly. The weight distribution is handled well as I'm able to balance the knife at the middle of the handle when the knife is closed. The knife does come in a bit heavy for its size, but I'm one of the people who equates weight with a solidly built product, which this is.

I was a bit hesitant about the G10 scales being too rough or tactical looking, but it has the texture of something rubberized and it could pass for an ebony scale from a few feet away.

The added jimping to the flipper makes deploying the blade even easier and the IKBS system makes everything buttery smooth.

While I'm sure the Mini Kwaiken could take a beating and hold its own in the great outdoors, this little beauty feels more at home in a suit jacket than a field jacket.
