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 copper handle with a titanium liner lock and a premium CPM-S35VN steel blade with a black finish. The copper on this knife will lovingly patina over time, making this knife even more unique. The copper 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. Copper handles are awesome! This was a home run! Thanks BLADEHQ!
This was the first knife i bought, i cant stop looking at it! came in quick!
Bought this specialty item for under $40 (are you kidding me?) three days ago. Arrived today. That was fast! Beautiful! Great action, perfect alignment, no play in the assembly, well lubed, full lock engagement. For those concerned about the choice of titanium for the lock and clip, I can think of two good reasons: minimal dissimilar metals corrosion issues (copper on steel - not a good idea) and material flexibility. What's not to like? Maybe the flipper tang is a little hard to operate right now, but it is already breaking in to work better with just a few flips. Probably not a 'beater/workhorse' knife. Excited to see how the copper patina transforms an already very nice looking EDC into an art piece. I expect this guy to be my pocket carry for quite a while ahead. Feel sorry for any that missed out on this quickly 'out of stock' piece at a fantastic price.
I bought this knife during the #nationknifeday sale for $59.99, and I'll tell you this knife is beautiful. Great quality, includes sturdy copper scales, a titanium line lock and a titanium pocket clip. The blade is also S35VN which is super high quality usually not found for under $100. 5 out of 5 stars would recommend!
