Boker Plus Exskelibur Folding Knives
These are really cool, lightweight folders from Boker Plus designed by Mike Skellern, from South Africa. You can see them at www.knifecenter.com
Made in China, but they seem really well made. They both fly open with minimal effort and the large one has an extension of the base of the blade that acts as a flipper of sorts. They have thin G10 handles wirth a titanium liner on the locking side. The large model has a smooth handle and the blade is wide and almost fully hollow ground- a really useful configuration.
Boker has the following information:
