Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Materials, Handle Material, Weight, Finish, Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness
Custom look at a great price!
I haven't used this much yet but I'll give a few first impressions. I own the Mickey Yurco custom version of this knife and it was $150. I have several of Mickey's neckers and they are excellent knives at reasonable prices. Boker did an outstanding job on this knife. Mickey had a prototype at the Chesapeake Knife show in December and I was impressed enough to buy this one. Visually it is indistinguishable from the custom version. Fit and finish are excellent both for the knife and the Kydex sheath. It comes with a Tech-Lok belt attachment and I've been wearing it in a high ride position on my left side and it is so comfortable I forget it is there. Sheath knives with traditional sheaths can be awkward when riding in a vehicle but in the high ride position this one is no problem. It is reasonably sharp out of the box but a few strokes on a Spyderco Sharpmaker or Crockstick will certainly help. It has a skinner type blade that may not be the best shape for a utility knife but should handle most tasks reasonably well. It is a 3/8ths inch thick blade which means it should means it should take a fair amount of abuse.
