It's like Rocky Balboa with no Apollo Creed... Mediocre!

This is Boker dropping the ball on what should be a PERFECT play...

I'm taking half a star off for the poorly positioned flipper tab that abbreviates handle space and doesn't allow me (my hands fit a large size glove) a complete grip on the handle, either forcing my pinky off the back of the handle but not enough so to still be comfortable or positioning the flipper tab dead center under and digging into my pointer finger if I try to choke up my grip. Did anyone at Boker with regular to large sized hands actually handled this petite model after downsizing it from the full size Urban Trapper? All they had to do was move the tab 5/16 of an inch further up the blade!

I'm taking a full star off for fit and finish to include sharp corners and edges on the frame and especially the flipper tab, it has a rather shallow edge grind all be it is very sharp, out of the box it was a bit dirty with a few splotches of some kind of yellowish gunk (yet it was still sealed), there is just little bit of lock stick from the frame lock and lastly the cocobolo scales not only have an inconsistent finish between the two but both are poorly/under/lacking finish.

I'm taking another half star off for squandered potential but I guess that just means because I'm pissed. THE POTENTIAL FOR THIS TO BE A PERFECT, ALL TIME, HALL OF FAME EDC IS ON PAR WITH THE SPYDERCO DRAGONFLY! The Dragonfly in my and pretty much the entire knife community's opinion is the best standard bearer of any EDC knife in this weight class. With a few tweaks this knife could be in production for the next 20 years!

As it is I do have the skills to clean up most of the fit and finish issues which I will eventualy do, I expect that will make it more like a 4.5 star EDC leaving just the flipper tab position as the only real anoyance. It makes me sad to think how much Boker left on the table with this one. : -/ But it makes me happy to think about how close I'm going to get it.

Btw I have dealt with Bokers warranty department twice now once on a broken pocket clip and once for a defective and out of production knife (Manero Stingray) that they still were able to replace, sending me the very last 9ne they had. In both cases they really took care of me and I was very impressed with their service! It's not that I don't think they're bad company in the slightest it's just that I think they could do better and I think was companies like We and Reiuke on their way up ladder, Boker better start scrambling quick or they'll be eclipsed in no time... :-)
