Description
BO02BO2013: Boker Plus Collection 2013
Boker Plus
 
Scott McGhee is an American Bladesmith (ABS) who lives and works in Southeastern North Carolina. Scott learned the art of bladesmithing at Penland School of Crafts at the age of 17, and has worked at a coal fired forge on and off since 1981. In August of 2009, he built a gas fired forge and began his bladesmithing in earnest. He is currently on a quest to obtain ABS Master Certification and begin knife making full time. The Boker Plus Collection knife for 2013 is based on his famous Cottonmouth custom piece. The blade shape and silhouette is typical of McGhee's designs. To guarantee the best cutting performance, the blade is made of 440C premium stainless steel with an attractive two-tone finish. The comfortably shaped handle is made of brown Micarta, and features artistic mosaic pins. The stainless steel handguard prevents slipping, and completes this heavy duty piece. Includes a premium brown leather sheath, collector's box and certificate of authenticity. Strictly limited to just 999 pieces worldwide.

An understated muscular performer
As with the other Boker Plus Collection knives, the 2013 model is visually-appealing and very collectible. It is perhaps the least flashy or unusual-looking among its Collection cousins, but performance-wise it is right at the top of the pile. The handle itself is ergonomic and comfortable, smooth but easy to retain in dry or wet conditions. The decorated pins are quite interesting, and add a little flair to an otherwise understated knife. The long, broad blade is ground just right to make deep slashing cuts as well as having the strength to withstand batoning and chopping tasks. The 440C steel is not amazing, but is a solid performer, taking and holding a good edge while being easy to service in the field and adequately corrosion-resistant. The ease with which the blade gets through a variety of outdoor tasks reflects a lot of thought and refinement that is not necessarily obvious at first glance. The sheath is serviceable, and holds the blade securely with no play, although it is probably the least impressive part of the package. I knife of this quality and versatility deserves a custom-made sheath, which I would recommend if you intend to use this knife extensively. Overall, this may be one of my favorite all-purpose outdoor knives for under $200. It has both high-quality materials and a well-considered design; I have yet to find a task this knife does not do well. As a showpiece, the 2013 looks rather conventional, but as a tool it really stands out from its competition.
