I know this thread is several months old and sorry I don't have an answer for you. Instead I would like to add another question for anyone who might know.
If there is a second run of these, does anyone know if Boker plans on fixing the blade play/lock rock issue on this knife?
It seems that the steep angle of the blade tang is what causes it, even if a knife doesn't have the blade play to begin with, from all of the reviews I have seen the albotros eventually develops this problem.
It's really to bad because it is a great looking knife made with good materials, just s crappy design flaw.
