    Hey All:

    I just bought a Boker Albatros about two weeks ago or so, and love the knife so far. I have been a little rough on the screws in my new folder and wanted to know if anyone who owns one knew the screw sizes. I possibly wanted to order some from someone other than Boker, and am still kind of new at getting to know my folding knife parts. Does anyone know the measurements from their own Albatros or possibly an easy way to measure them myself? All Boker service department has told me so far is:

    The pivot screw is a torx #8 and the handle and clip screws are torx #6.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    Hi, sorry I haven't been able to respond to your last email. I do not have a thread gauge here in the shop, but if you go to a good hardware store, they should have one and you can discover the thread pitch. I have an email in the find the dimensions from the factory but have not heard back yet.

    No problem Terry, I was just putting out as many fishing nets as I could. Thank you anyway for checking it out for me, and the recommendation. If you hear back from the factory I would love to hear the specs, otherwise thank you for the follow up.

    I received some parts from that company, the Albatros was not included. They say in the next shipment.
