Description
BO02BO400: Boker Plus SOB (Spec Ops Blade)
Boker Plus

Another design from the shop of Jim Burke is the SOB (Spec Ops Blade). The slim profile of this knife, and the pronounced finger groove mold comfortably into your hand, while the slightly curved belly of the blade facilitates circumstances when a pulling cut is required. The 12C27 blade steel is provided with a stonewash finish, and the canvas Micarta handle ensures a secure grip. Includes a Kydex sheath and belt loop, Tek-Lok compatible (Tek-Lok not included). Blade length: 3 1/2". Overall length: 6 3/4". Weight: 4 oz.

Perfect EDC!
This blade and tek lok combo is just about perfect for me going from tactical folders to a fixed blade EDC. Knife takes a wicked edge. Not crazy about sheath leaving marks on the finish but that is my only gripe. Otherwise I love comfort of having a horizontal mounting and ease of deploying the knife very quickly.

Pros: Blade Material, Handle Material, None
Cons: Finish, Overall Quality
This is a small knife, fixed, full tang, stainless steel of the12C27 variety. Tip-to-butt it's 6 5/8", the blade is 1 1/8" wide at its widest, with a very sloping drop point and a slight belly on the edge, and the stock is 1/8" thick. It's got micarta scales in greenish grey fixed with 3 torx screws, but I think they must also be epoxyed on. The SOB looks better in the picture than it does out of the box, but that's usually the case, but that's not to say it's an unattractive knife. From the photo it seems the blade is quite shiny, but the fact is that it has some sort of matte grey coating on it. I personally would much rather it was polished to raw metal, and may in fact do just that myself. The sheath that comes with the knife provides a very tight fit, which is good in terms of retention but bad because its hard to draw the knife, in fact impossible with one hand, and also because that coating I mentioned gets scratched from the very first time you take it out. I like the size and shape, but dislike the jimping very much because I feel it's too harsh. A straight spine would have been nice. Also, the butt of the knife prevents the entire edge from touching a surface, so it's useless for chopping food in camp unless you do it at the edge of a cutting board. In terms of quality and finish it's what one would expect from a Chinese mass production knife. The scales are not flush with the tang, which protrudes slightly all around. The lanyard hole is shy of 5/32", so inserting a paracord can be a tough chore. Also, the inside of the hole is not very clean, so it needs to be filed first. The knife comes sharp, but not kidney-removing sharp. A good stropping helps a lot, or just go ahead and resharpen and restrop. The kydex-like sheath is alright, I guess, it seems well executed and there are no sharp edges or asymmetries. There is a drain hole near the tip of the knife. There is NO belt loop or attachment that comes with this knife, so plan on getting a Tek Lok or MacGyvering something. Personally I looped some paracord using the grommet holes and carry the knife horizontally on my belt, which is very comfortable.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, None
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, Finish, Weight, Overall Quality
Not a stonewash finish...
After some terrific knives from Boker Plus (Gnome, Rhino, Jermer EDC), I was looking forward to this knife. Huge letdown. The finish appears not stonewashed, but closer to a bead blast. It's very small and yet too heavy. A small handle can be made that works well (see above), but this one doesn't work even with my small hands. It's also very overpriced. An Izula II can be had for almost the same and it's a much better choice. Even the usual beadchain is not included for the sheath. Not sure if I want to try using it or just return it...
