Serge Panchenko has created a unique style over the years. His designs and finishes are recognizable at first glance. This new Blade HQ Exclusive Boker Plus Lancer knife features a tumbled brass handle with a titanium liner lock and a premium CPM-S35VN steel blade. The brass on this knife will lovingly patina over time, making this knife even more unique. The brass scales also add a good bit of heft to the knife!
Knifemaker Serge Panchenko established a name for himself with his extremely popular Dog Tag series of folding knives. The Boker Lancer builds off that unique EDC design, while providing a larger, more functional blade. It offers a profile that is more slim and lightweight than most full size pocket knives, with a sturdy build you can depend on during tough jobs. A titanium liner lock solidifies the tough build while providing superb lock up. This Panchenko design is finished off with a titanium pocket clip for tip-up carry.
Overall great knife and purchased at great price---while on sale. Excellent blade steel. Deployment sound. Lockup tight. Liner lock works good for me. Brass handles are awesome! This was a home run! Thanks BLADEHQ!
I'm a big fan of the overall distressed styling of this knife, with a weeks worth of handing the brass is already darkening. Blade is sharp and has an excellent acid-wash finish. Slight cons are loosening at pivot (which I will rectify with blue Locktite) and the liner lock could be sturdier.
Specs seemed good, but it was the aesthetics that got me. Call me vein, but I liked that it matched my brass pens. It's a pretty, pretty thing, but as someone who usually carries a Leatherman it doesn't come across as heavy duty in any way. Other than that, quality seems good, came sharp, ergonomics are better than it's rectangle shape would lead you to believe. Don't know that I'd pay full price for it but have no regrets having bought in on sale. Did I mention how pretty it is? It won't look out of place in the office and that's one of the main reasons I wanted it in the first place.
Present for my dad, it's currently getting engraved. Sharp out the box and love the brass/sw. Only concern was the undersized linerlock. Otherwise quality is there.
