Boker Plus SOB (Spec Ops Blade)
We’ve mentioned the lack of gentleman’s fixed blades on the market these days, and though it is a little on the big side, we think the new Boker Spec Ops Blade falls into this great category. The SOB, as it is called, features Micarta scales and a Kydex sheath that can be matched to a Tek-Lok—though it is not included. The knife is comfortable in the hand, and the modified sheepsfoot blade is built for a variety of tasks—utility, tactical, and even culinary!
Following is the Boker Knives description:
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.
