Description
BO02BO2012: Boker Plus Collection 2012
Boker Plus
 
Bill Luckett from Weatherford, Texas, is well known for his extravagant Bowie knives. The Boker Plus Collection 2012 is a very typical Luckett design, and enthuses from the first look with its dynamic appearance. The amazing design lines and his breathtaking blade grinds make his custom knives desired collector's pieces. Bill Luckett generally works free hand, without master plates or fixations, so each of his knives is a truly unique piece and never duplicates another. The extravagant grind of the mirror polished blade presented a great challenge for the Boker team, and makes the Boker Plus Collection 2012 an exceptional presentation piece. The large handguard and the pommel are polished as well, and are set with several fiber layers, which frame the ergonomic black Micarta handle. We use 440C stainless for the blade steel, which is the standard for the Boker Plus Collection series. The Boker Plus Collection 2012 - a knife which makes not only a great collector's piece in your showcase, but also a Bowie knife which does not step back from any challenge. Strictly limited to just 1,999 pieces worldwide. Comes complete with a high quality leather sheath, certificate of authenticity, and collector's presentation box. Blade thickness: 6mm. Blade length: 8-1/4". Overall length: 13-5/8". Weight: 12.2 oz.

An intimidating bowie
As with the other Boker Plus Collection knives, the 2012 model is quite an eye-catching piece of equipment. The sexy curves of the blade and handle make this the most visually appealing of the Collection series so far, and it would look good in any display case or on any belt. Primarily a fighter, the 2012 does not excel at utility work to the extent of its Collection cousins, however it is just as comfortable to wield, and has a delightfully thick and sturdy handle for those of us with large hands. The tip of the blade is fairly thick for added strength, however this makes the factory grind angle a bit too wide to cut smoothly. Good for stabbing, but not as good for slicing. The remainder of the blade, however, seems to cut very nicely, The 440C steel is not amazing, but quite good at taking and holding an edge as well as a fine mirror polish. At 8 inches, the blade has plenty of room to make deep cuts, and the steel is of high enough quality to take a narrow angle grind should you want to improve cutting performance. The sheath is adequate and functional, though probably the weakest point of the package. The hilt strap holds the knife securely with no play, and allows the knife to slide easily in and out without too much fiddling. Overall, this is an intimidating and beautiful fighter made of high-quality materials with no major drawbacks. It very nearly earned five stars on my scale, but the overly-thick tip led me to knock it down a notch. This knife would make an excellent addition to any fixed-blade collection, and begs to be displayed and admired.

Awesome in size
The finish on this knife is top notch. A huge knife, nice collector's box and the sheath is custom. Well worth the money. Boker workmanship is top notch as usual. A nice piece to add to the collection.
