Boker Plus Colubris Fixed Blade Workhorse

Boker Plus Colubris Fixed Blade Workhorse

Very rarely do we get knives in the door that we have to double, then triple check the price to make sure we got it right. That’s just the case with the new Boker Plus Colubris, an all-around fixed blade designed by DJ Urbanovsky. When you get this knife in your hand, it’s a lot like the Ontario RAT folders, you just can’t believe what you’re getting for the price. True, the blade is made from 440C steel but the way Boker heat treats and finishes these blades, you end up with a great user steel that will hold an adequate edge. Other than the knock on the steel, we wouldn’t change a single thing about the knife. The G10 handle is ergonomically contoured for a comfortable grip in multiple positions and the aesthetic dimpling/texturing provides good purchase. The modified Wharncliff blade is angled for deep, effective slicing and has enough belly for most of your utility work. I strongly feel a fixed blade knife is only as good as it’s sheath, and the friction fit Kydex sheath you get with the Colubris is right on point. It perfectly fits the knife with little to no rattling sound, and comes with a multi-position Boker belt clip, which functions exactly the same as a Spyderco G-Clip.

Zero Tolerance Blackwashed Model 0300

Zero Tolerance Blackwash Model 0300

 

The Model 0300 was Zero Tolerance’s first ever knife, co-designed by Ken Onion and Mick Strider, and it became an immediate success in the realm of hard use folding knives. ZT has separated themselves from the competition by using only the best available materials and manufacturing stout tactical knives to some of the tightest tolerances in the industry. The handle of the 0300 is a large 5-1/4″, made from machined G10 with a titanium frame lock. It’s got great jimping for your thumb in both the forward and reverse grips, much like a Strider Knife, which is functional even with gloves on. The 3-3/4″ S30V blade features the new Blackwashed finish which is best described as a DLC (diamond-like carbon) finish that been tumbled (or stonewashed) for a non-reflective, broken-in look. The Model 0300 was such a popular design that it spawned a smaller brother, the 0350 with all G10 handles, that continues to be among the most popular knives ZT manufacturers. Blackwash is the same finish as the Acid Stonewash by Brous Blades and seems to be where manufacturers are heading for a durable, non-reflective finish on high end knives.
