Boker Dreed Titanium Pocket Knife - Final Run Exclusive!
Discontinued End Of Run Final Limited Batch
The Boker Plus Dreed is an incredible titanium pocket knife, designed by the Danish designer Mikkel Willumsen. His distinct taste can immediately be recognized in this tough knife. The hollow-grind blade might look simple, but is complemented by the handle. It is, after all, spectacularly formed and enhanced with cool design elements. Willumsem pays a lot of attention to detail. The screw for the frame, the pivot and the thumb stud are (practically) identical. With the flipper or the thumb studs you can quickly open the blade. The framelock keeps the blade In place. To prevent a sticky lock or premature wear and tear the framelock has been enhanced with a steel insert.
This is a copy of the original Danish "Dredd" by Mikkel Willumsen from Urban Tactical, but that's a $500 knife, with CPM154. Boker's "Dreed" is made in China and goes here for $60 with "440C" (which by the way is grind etched on the thumb tab, nice accent Boker!). My "Dreed" came sharp and cuts cardboard like a boss. There is no jimping, but I don't mind; because when opened with the flipper, the index finger slides smoothly over the properly milled edges; well done Boker! This knife also has a unique serial number on the tang of the blade, which is good for collectors. And when compared with a similar sized CRKT "Outrage" (a liner lock verses a frame lock), you can see a clear difference in quality, character, and utility. In closing, the CC website gave its weight at 5.4 oz, my scale said 5.7 oz, but who's counting, it disappears clipped in my back pocket outer edge so lightly that I forgot I was carrying it, twice. If you are looking for a daily carry EDC knife with an attitude, buy it.

Quick click click and 3 days later I had my brand new EDC knife. The balance is just back of the finger guard, leading it sit back into your hand with a standard grip. While I typically prefer tanto blades, the drop point of this is very smooth and makes for a solid cutting tool.
Knife was sharp and cool looking! The details of the knife was just wow! Perfect grip. Me and 4 of my co-workers bought the knife all at the same day.
Nice high quality knife, my only issue is in part of the design.
I own several frame locks & like them all, but this one needs the scales relieved on the side opposite from the locking bar to allow more room to disengage the locking bar. It’s very difficult to get to.
I’m really surprised this was overlooked in the design.
