For a knife to be considered tactical, it must meet some high expectations. It must be strong, easy and fast to deploy, be nimble in combat, and be efficient in utility. The Boker Strike is meets and exceeds those high expectations, and does so at a price that is near impossible to beat. Not only is the Strike a superb tactical knife, but it comes in several sizes, in a multitude of colors, and a selection of blade styles. There is a perfect Strike model to put in any pocket, from combat uniforms to blue jeans. No matter how you carry it, the Strike is ready for anything at the push of a button!
There are dozens of Boker Automatic Knives, and each one maximizes function and value. Check them out!
*Automatic conversion knives are retrofitted by a third party to accept a coil spring. The factory warranty on these knives is void, but we do warranty the conversion/spring of these knives for one (1) year from date of purchase.
Great looking knife, much heavier than other Strikers. Hard to release the blade, must depress button deep. Also wish it had a safety like every other Boker Strike (except the brass-handled version)
So I received this knife a couple weeks ago. It also doubles as a pommel. I don’t love D2 steel but I do like it. Beats the budget stuff like sandvik all day. I am also tough on my blades. I like the weight and I understand that some people do not. The one thing that I was concerned about is the button action. I would have liked to have seen that with a hair more exposure. The button was super stiff when I received it. I squeezed a few drops of CLP on it and worked it in. I put it away for a few days and now it is much easier. As a note, I do not like my autos with hair trigger releases. This one is definitely not that. Nor is it as stiff as it was when I bought it. For what it is advertised as, I would have given it 5 stars had the button had just a little more meat on it. Consider this knife if you need something with a less tactical appearance while still needing a tool for multiple jobs.
This Boker Plus Strike automatic knife is very good! But, the button that deploys the blade is VERY stiff at first. When I first received it I could not open it at all. I put 3 tiny drops of Tuff Glide oil around the button & loosened the pivot adjustment about ¼ turn. Then it opened, but it was still very hard to push the button. So, I just kept working with it. I opened & closed it about 100 times manually. This seemed to get the button to work more smoothly. It'll open fairly easily 2 consecutive times, then it'll be really hard again. I still give it 4 stars because it's SUCH a good knife otherwise. I love the D2 blade & copper handle! It's also VERY sharp right outta the box. I highly recommend it. Thanks!
It's an okay knife at first glance. The weight of it isn't for everyone. But I enjoy a solid knife. I just now opened it and im wondering why the push button is so stiff and round?? Why is it not textured? And a little higher.... ALSO. It's not as snappy out of the box. But hey. For a knife that's on sale and it being boker.... it's ok, it's not perfect and it's not terrible.
This is my third Boker knife (Strike Desert w/ Clip Point and Kalashnikov Bowie D/A OTF). The OTF is a must have!!! The Strike Desert is a good knife but a little light for my taste. I picked up this Strike because I wanted more weight and something with a little more style. Overall, the knife is ok. Pro: Size, Weight & Build. If you like a heavy, then you will like the feel of the Strike. Knife has excellent jimping at the thumb position and feels comfortable in the hand with good balance. The build of the knife appears well done; outside of the pocket clip. The D2 Blade is centered and no wobble after lock-up. Con: Action and Release. These both are a deal breaker. The Action isn’t great—slow and weak (i.e., not snappy). With a handle this heavy, Boker needs add some more spring to the release. Along with the Button Release is the major flaw. First the button is too small. Second, it’s hard to push to deploy blade or release after lock-up. Third, the feel of the Button isn’t good. Maybe if there was some machining around the button and/or some jimping it would alleviate the issue. Lastly, there is no lock so I would have concerns aggressively using the knife for fear of accidently depressing the button release. As mentioned above the Pocket Clip is lackluster in appearance and feels cheap. The D2 blade came moderately sharp (failed paper cut test) so it needs some work. Conclusion: Well, I have spoiled myself with Benchmade and ZT but you have to pay considerably more to get that quality. The Boker OTF is one of my favorite so I had hoped I had found a brand that I could get a good quality knife at a reduced cost. At $65, this Broker Strike isn’t a huge investment so I am 50/50 on a return. I plan to oil the action really well and work with the knife for a few days. If I don’t get any improvement, this will be a return.
