Description
BOP050: Jim Wagner Reality Based Blade
Boker Plus
 
Just by looking at this knife for the first time, you know it's a professional tactical tool to defend yourself. After world-famous knife fighting expert Jim Wagner trained Germany's top counterterrorist team, GSG9, in knife tactics, we at Boker asked him if he would design the ultimate tactical folding knife for police, military and security personnel, and this is the result - the Jim Wagner Reality-Based Blade.

This knife has tactical features that no other folder has - a gladius penetrating tip, a cutting kriss curve, two blood grooves in the blade, ergonomic finger grooves with anti-slip texturing, and a Thumb Guide Slide that guides the operator's thumb to the thumb stud for immediate deployment. Also featured is a clip kit that allows the operator to choose between a standard heavy-duty window-breaker or one that looks like an ordinary writing pen clip for undercover operations where conceiling the knife, and yet having instant access, is crucial. It has two lanyard holes for air, water and wilderness operations, and it comes in tactical subdued black. When the blade is retracted, the handle and exposed blade back is designed to be a tight impact weapon. To absorb the tremendous forces you can put to the knife, there is a solid lock back mechanism. Under the fiberglass-reinforced plastic, there are two 1 mm stainless steel liners to strengthen the construction and to give the right weight to the hand.

The blade is made of 440C high performance stainless steel, which guarantees superior edge-holding ability and corrosion resistance. Not only does this weapon bear the name of the designer, but the blade is also emlazoned with the name of the fastest growing and most complete martial arts system in the world, Reality-Based Personal Protection. Jim Wagner's system has been taught to the American FBI, Brazilian GATE, Argentinean GOE, Israeli Special Forces, German Federal Police, Canadian Royal Mounted Police, and the list goes on.

All the experiences the designer had during his several police and military missions were put into the concept of this knife.

Cons: Ease of Opening, None
Suprising for the Price
I use this at work for a cutting tool and carry it for purposes of self-defense outside of work. The construction is decent quality and offers good performance with not too much weight. The handle is very light (with good traction) and the blade weight is good -- you feel like quality is in your hand. The flip maneuver to open is OK -- once it is near the fully open position it snaps in -- about 3/4 of the way there is a little "stickiness" but a little practice removed the awkwardness. Overall I think this was a great purchase. The price point is low and the quality decent.

Cons: Handle Feel, Overall Quality, Handle Material
average at best
I purchased this a couple years back as a defensive cary piece when not on duty. When it arrived the first thing I noticed was the handle felt cheap and a bit wider than i would have liked. I carried it for a few motnhs and trained with it and found it to be functional in the task it was designed for. I do have concerns as to the tips strength though. I chipped just a tiny bit off when training on a mack up thats was wearing a leather jacket over a fleshy substitue. All in all Ill stick with my zero tolerance 0200st or my parogon xo lite

Sharp & Deadly
I use this knife as a defense tool and for general utility. It has a very solid construction and a great grip on it. One of my favorite features are the many regions of the knife that can be used in a defensive role. This weapon can cause serious damage to an attacker without ever drawing the blade. The blade itself is extremely sharp and very brutal. The blade is great for stabbing, slashing and even contour cuts along a round surface. I would recommend!
