Customer Reviews

Excellent for the price.
JAMES M. on Dec 7, 2021

This is a looker with the copper bolsters and micarta scales. The flipper has an excellent action and the blade is sharp but can use a fine tune on the sharpness. This is no lightweight for the size but I'm okay with that. I carry this in my coin pocket with a Spyderco Para Lightweight CPM SPY27 as my main carry. This is an excellent second carry and is not scary to the office folks who may have aversions as it looks the business. I recommend.

Excellent and fun

This knife is great in every way for a $100. The one I got had excellent fit and finish, crazy sharp, and beautiful flipping action. Everyone that has seen it thinks it is a great looking knife and the size is ideal for sitting in the bottom of the pocket. Highly recommend.

Work of ART!

This knife is absolutely beautiful. The fit and finish are really nice and the lock-up is solid. The edge needed a little work out of the box. but this may be my crowd-friendly, fifth pocket knife for EDC. along with the two others, I normally carry ;-) So happy to have this BHQ exclusive. Keep Em' Comming!

This is now one of my favorite knives, These are made very well and it feels like top quality in hand, I have big hands and still have no trouble opening this little guy, works great for thumb opening too. These are numbered on the spine as well, what a great little knife, this is staying in the collection forever. Im definitely going to buy a couple of these before they are gone for good. I never expected to buy two Bokers back to back, but I did... and both of them have impressive build qualtiy with great attention to detail. (The other knife being the Smatchet). Great job Boker

Decent but not great
Jason Z. on Oct 28, 2021

Knife is fine. Agree with another reviewer that it's not sharp. Action is decent for such a small blade. My biggest issue is calling this micarta is a joke. It might be micarta but it absolutely covered in resin and has no texture. This isn't my first Boker but will probably be my last.

Okay after some work
Rob H. on Jun 30, 2021

Boker did not show their best sharpening or lubrication in my copy of this knife. I needed to do some work on the edge to get it nice and sharp, and add some lube to the detente ball to stop the grinding on closing. The knife itself is pretty nice, a little small it in the hand.
