BO01BO004: Exskelimoor I
Boker
 
Simply exceptional.

The overwhelming response to the Mike Skellern Exskelibur Series with G10 scales brought us to the launch of this version. The Exskelimoor catches the eye with contoured handles made out of rustic Bog Oak, mounted on double titanium liners. The blue anodizing of the liners and clip provide an attractive contrast to the wooden scales. 440C stainless steel, with its well known edge retention, in combination with the hollow grind, provides superior cutting capabilities. The horizontal satin finish completes the noble appearance. The Exskelibur does not include thumb studs yet is designed to be opened with one hand using the jimping on the spine of the blade. The action is exceptionally smooth so can easily be flicked opened as well. Can be carried using the tip-down pocket clip and you'll barely notice the knife in your pocket at a mere three ounces. The Exskelibur is great value for anyone looking for a classy EDC folder.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, None
Cons: Overall Quality, Handle Feel
Decent knife lacking fit-and-finish
Upon receiving this folder I was initially disappointed. Straight out of the box the first thing I noticed were light wood scales, not what you would expect from bog oak which should have been pretty dark. The scales could also be a touch larger, as the steel frame protrudes from the scale on the finder side of the handle. The blue tempered steel frame had pretty sharp edges as well, that made operating the frame lock uncomfortable, as well as the gimping on the blade, especially at the back to the blade were the gimping curls around that slight radius at the base of the blade. Additionally the folder shipped with a loosely fastened pocket clip. Luckily this is all easily fixed! I fastened the pocket clip down, and so far it hasn't loosened over a month's use. I deburred the frame edges lightly, removing the sharp feeling all together. The gimping was more troublesome to correct as the blade steel is rather hard & tended to wear away the sharpening stone I was using to smooth them down. I'll probably have to break out the grinder to fix this one. The wood darkened after a day of use, once the residual sawdust was removed. The feel of the knife is a little weird. With the majority of weight of this is in the blade & with a thinner steel frame & wood scales there is not much in the handle to counter-act the weight-forward balance. This isn't a make-or-break issue for me, the knife just feels & handles slightly differently than what I am used to. On the plus side, the blade is nicely shaped, quite sharp & operates very smoothly! The operation takes a bit of getting use to, but once you get a hang of it, its pretty easy. I use a thumb & just rotate it over the top of the handle to flick the blade open, but you can "throw" it open by thrusting your arm out in a straight line. Normally this will open the knife & lock it in place 50% of the time, but if you flip the knife upside down you can get this open & locked 100% of the time! When closed, the frame lock fits into a small detent on the blade, keeping the knife together in-pocket. The knife styling & materials are pretty nice. The blued steel frame liners & pocket clip look quite nice against the dark bog oak scales. And this is a relatively cheap way to get your hands on a premium handle material! With some extra attention to fit-and-finish in the factory, the Boker Exskelimoor could be an excellent knife, but as it stand now it is only OK.

Good EDC
I've had this knife about a week and really like it. I like bigger knives for my big hands, and this one is light enough that you barely notice it in your pocket. The action is good that you can open it with a flick of the wrist. It also locks up good and consistent. But unlocking it is a pain because the top deck is flush with the bottom liner, so you have to angle your fingernail to disengage it. 440C steel is the bomb, great edge holding. The also give you a spanner wrench to tighten the pivot! Only other disappointment is that the pivot washers are too small; as with most folders. Overall a really nice knife.
