A knife does not have to have a rose wood handle and brass trimmingsl This knife was used by me in law enforcement for 22 years. I purchaed this new version. It's tough, it sharpens easily and holds an edge, the bottom can break car windows, a grip is molded in the handle. In short it was desibned for combat, rescue or stressful situations. The old model never failed me and the new model is an exact copy with a minor change. Fantastic price for a knife. And anyone who thinks it is a 'cheap' knife, have never owned one.
I’ve owned the mini kal, and the regular size, this being the third one I’ve owned. Spectacular knife, blade fires solid every time, and I never have to worry about the blade firing on its own due to the recessed firing button. I’d definitely recommend these knives to anyone looking for an auto on a somewhat of a budget, or otherwise even. Go Boker!
Looks great, fires strong, I love this knife! D2 is a strong steel!
