Boker Plus

The Boker Solingen model 3000 has been popular for many years now, especially for hunting and the outdoors. For everyday carry, many users prefer a more slim and lightweight knife, and our new Boker Plus 3000 Lightweight is the answer. The titanium bolsters frame the contoured black G-10 scales, and the versatile drop point 440C stainless steel blade displays an attractive brushed finish. Another feature is the removable pocket clip, which allows for comfortable and discreet carry. An ageless knife classic, made of modern materials. Blade length: 3 5/8". Overall length: 8 1/4". Weight: 5 oz. Made in Asia.

An Elegant Beast
The ads hint that this Elegance 3000 is a new version of an old traditional design formerly built in Solingen. I did some searching, but since I'm not a collector I couldn't find a trace of anything that resembled this design. However, THIS KNIFE is awesome! It is well built and the massive 440C Stainless blade snaps into place just like my old Case Folding Hunter. But this knife is huge, even when compared to the Case. I could detect no flaws or blemishes, just some minor waviness in the FFG finish on the blade, but not so bad that I wouldn’t carry this beast for its exceptional usefulness at work. Additionally, the Elegance 3000 grip has G-10 scales that are sanded smooth. I don't know, I would have preferred leaving them in their natural rough state for a better grip, but actually the handle on this knife is so big it probably wouldn't slip out of grip even with a layer of grease sitting on it. Unlike most riveted traditional knives, this knife has torx screw fasteners, and the entire knife can be disassembled for a thorough cleaning. The Boker Elegance 3000 is a mid-lockback, which is very convenient but the lever takes a strong effort to disengage, so it might still require two hands for closing the blade. Opening the blade does require two hands. A mystery to me why they didn't leave a ridge on the blade or put thumb-push openers on it, because this big ol' 3mm thick blade stands out from the handle with plenty of available space for implementing any one of the push-open devices available. But I guess not everyone wants a blade that can be pushed open with one hand. I like this knife just the way it is too, because here is a knife that will stand up to a lot of hard use, and it will also look good while using it.

Cons: None
Too good to pass up.
A 3-5/8" 440C blade, G10 scales, titanium bolsters, $39.95? Are you kidding? I have to convince you to buy this??? The handle fits nicely in your hand, the blade is thick, big, & sharp. The G10 scales are smooth but I like G10 and smooth is better in the pocket and on the skin. This is a great hunting-camping-skinning-kitchen utility knife. It feels great in your hand. There are no sharp edges, corners, or pins. The blade is centered, it opens smoothly & easily. It locks up like a vault. & the G10 is gorgeous. The brushed steel blade stands in contrast to the shiny titanium bolsters;this is one good looking knife. And it is sharp as heck to boot. What's not to love? I should give it a 5 for the quality vs. price point. It's at least a 4 overall.
