Description
BO01BO140: Böker Plus Federal
Boker Plus
 
This is one of the most anticipated knives to come from Boker Plus. The designer is one of the most sought after custom knife makers in the world with a waiting time for his customs measuring in years. This model is made in Asia, but it is one of the finest imports the Boker Plus has offered. The fit and finish are superb. Blades have no play and they are centered. Everything really clicks on these - except possibly the pocket clip which will only fit very thin fabric.
 
Here is more information from Boker Knives:
The Brazilian knife maker Gustavo Cecchini doesn't only design modern folding knives; he designs futuristic ones, and is never at a loss for new ideas. The Federal Folder has a unique clip design for which the clip automatically retracts into the handle when not in use. The idea itself is not new, but the execution is unique: instead of a delicate mechanism, the clip is integrated into the titanium casing, much like a frame lock. To clip the knife, just press your thumb and spread the spring force away from the casing. A solution that is unsurpassed in its simplicity and elegance. And the rest of the fittings make you want more: the titanium body with its expressive milling bears two carbon fiber inlays, which strikingly underline the modern design. Locks with a frame lock. The blade is opened with a flipper, and milling in the area of the thumb ramp gives extra grip.

Pros: Handle Material, Handle Feel, Blade Sharpness, None
Cons: Weight, Pocket Clip, Overall Quality
Heavy duty EDC?
The Federal came sharp, out of the box. The overall fit and finish is relatively good, with the grips and inlays giving a good impression. The blade lock firmly into place, with no play. Closed, the blade is centred, also with no play. However, don't be fooled, this knife is a beast. The initial pictures does not capture how thick and bulky the blade is. Although it has a flipper, with the added weight of the blade, it is almost impossible to deploy the blade with just a flip. You flip, then use a wrist flick to fully deploy. Part of this might be due to the slightly rough roller in the frame lock. With some lubrication and time, this might improve. Good buy for someone that requires a heavy duty EDC, but not my first choice to carry every day. The pocket clip, although neat, is not very practical, and for someone working in jeans, this will not work.

Cons: None
One nice folder
I'm a fan of the the custom titanium handle folders made by CRK, Scott Cook, etc and I must say that this Boker holds it's own against some of the best. Smooth action. Blade is centered, thick, and sturdy. I really like the integrated pocket clip. It's out of your way when you're holding it. What a sweet knife!
