I recently caught this knife on sale for about $65. Knowing the quality associated with Böker, and the Ti construction with D2 tool steel blade, this was a no-brainer to add to my EDC rotation. After receiving the knife today, I’m glad I pulled the trigger on it. The design is sleek and unobtrusive, and the deep carry clip keeps everything neatly tucked away out of view. The blade is sharp, perfectly centered, and glides open and closed smoothly and with little effort. The lockup is solid (sometimes too solid, but more on that later), and when closed, the blade stays in place when the knife is jostled about, but can be coerced to fully open with a gentle but deliberate flick of the wrist. The nail nick on the blade is an elegant departure from typical thumb studs, and the stonewash finish is pretty heavy, which I like, but others’ opinions may vary.
The cons. As stated before, sometimes the lockup is a little too solid, particularly when flicking your wrist to open the blade one-handedly. The force of swinging the blade open causes a late lockup that seizes and requires a fair amount of force to break free, even after using some graphite on the lockup surface of the blade. The second problem is somewhat related to the first, and a common one among framelocks. With a lack of any safety to prevent overextending the lockbar, it’s really easy to torque the lockbar too far, especially when it’s seized up in a late lockup. Both of these problems can be avoided by simply using two hands to open the blade. I’m still working on finding a one-handed-opening method that doesn’t cause the late lockup.
Nothing major enough to make me not carry and use the knife, and I’m still super glad I grabbed one. Knowing what I know now, I’d still buy one and I think it’s a great value for an EDC blade that you won’t be hesitant to actually use.
Thanks for great customer service quick delivery and applied a discount i had forgotten about when I ordered it. Good value but wish it had a flipper.
