Bokers Danish Designed Folding Knife-the Haddock
Every so often something comes to us that catches our eye. Something a little different with a little different take on things. Boker knives in Germany has released something that fits this bill with this new Haddock frame lock folding knife designed by a Danish knifemaker. It’s noticeably lighter than most folders of its size. It feels a little better in the hand. The blade shape is different and very utilitarian. The blade is also a very thick stock, hollowed down to a razor edge – and it is sharp. The blade finish isn’t pretty- just a flat, stone washed gray, but this is a functioning folding knife. It is extremely well made.
We like this knife. There is no thumb stud or flipper and so you pinch the top of the blade with thumb and finger and flip the handle over or use the nail slot. The action is very good and adjustable with the torx screw. You can see them at www.knifecenter.com
Here is the information from the manufacturer:
A new member of the international Boker design team is Jens Ansø from Denmark. We are proud to offer this modern piece which features, with its massive dimensions and two-way clip, all the criteria of a true pocket knife and is sure to inspire the ambitious user and collector. The upper scale is made of contoured, CNC machined G-10, and the back liner consists of 3mm of solid titanium. This construction allows for an excellent feel and grip, and keeps it lightweight. The exotic shaped blade is made of cobalt N690BO steel, is 5mm thick, and features a precise hollow grind that is razor sharp and perfectly balanced. The classic nail nick makes opening easy, and the stonewashed finish on the blade and framelock provides an attractive contrast to the handle. Blade length: 3-3/8″. Overall length: 7-5/8″. Weight: 4 oz. Made in Solingen, Germany.
