After his debut in our Solingen production line with the Haddock, Cox and 67, Jens Ansø from Denmark brings new models to our Boker Plus line. The Albatros boasts massive, 3.6mm thick titanium plates that form the basis for the frame lock. Between the plates sits the 5mm thick blade, made of VG-10 steel, which with its bulbous edge and slight hollow grind allows versatility and excellent cutting performance. The titanium pocket clip is reversible for tip-up or tip-down carry, and the large lanyard hole completes the package.

This short, nearly quarter inch thick, beautifully stonewashed blade sits perfectly between titanium and marble carbon fiber liner slabs with flawless fit and finish. Despite its stout build, it is surprisingly light in weight and is an ideal EDC blade, at least for me. VG-10 steel with excellent corrosion resistance for humid climates and a sharp out of the box hollow grind, all at an extremely reasonable price, you ought to get one right now and avoid having to wait another five years as I did when Boker discontinued the line until its current re-emergence.
Excellent blade, perfect EDC, does a fine job at food prep, carving, all around spot on! CountyComm. You are 5-STAR! .....ATB!
WHAT HAVE YOU DONE!!!!! The first time I saw this knife I was in tenth grade. I ABSOLUTELY FELL IN LOVE WITH IT! At that time I was in the craze of all Titanium folders, like the Boker F3 and Spyderco Sage 2. But this knife was my favorite and it still is. Now all I carry are Carbon Fiber scaled Titanium framelocks (like the ZT0602, Steel Will Resident CF, Real Steel Control CF etc.). Even though I was out of the Titanium craze...I still wanted this knife. I love Jens Anso's designs and this one was my all time favorite. I kept searching to see if someone would sell one for a "reasonable" price but that never happened and if it did, I missed it and lost all hope. Then I saw this.....WOW!!! It's like a dream come true. It's like someone took the knife I loved and made it with my favorite materials and added my favorite color accents just for fun! I am so happy right now. Thank you CountyComm for this amazing collaboration. Please continue to bring out amazing knives like this one. And PLEASE KEEP READING MY MIND!
This CC Boker Albatros is a really cool little big guy. The beautifully stone washed titanium slab, pocket clip and VG10 blade give it depth & character while the gorgeous marbled carbon fiber scale makes it stand out from the crowd. The blue accents are nice touch as is the jimping on the blade and lock bar. It has a nice heft to it, but certainly not too heavy IMO. It feels great in hand and should be able to handle a lot of hard use/work with that 5mm thick blade. I really like this knife and happy I bought one before they sell out. I'm giving it 4 stars though based on a few things. I'm knocking off one star for the use of nylon washers rather than bronze phosphor ones, no hardened lock-bar insert, and for the tip up mounting holes being too low. At this price point these items that could have been remedied via Boker. Heck I'd easily pass on the lanyard and ti-bead for some bronze washers & a lock-bar insert. That being said this isn't your average EDC and I'm very happy with my Albatros. Looking forward to putting it to work.
