I've been looking for something like a extended bolster congress with carbon blades and natural material handle, if this exists, please let me know the product number. if not, well, I'd like to see it.

also, the titan with engraved bolster is a great looking knife, can it be fitted with a cera-ti blade?

thanks

I recently received the print Magnum catalog. Saw a couple interesting knives in it and went to the Boker US website to take a look and maybe order a few. I had the worst time trying to find the models shown in the catalog on the site. The most frustrating aspect was the total failure of the Search mode to show any results to my search for "Barlow". Several attempts all returned 'no results' responses. There they were in the print catalog, but 'Search' came up with nada.

Help??

Boker Barlow fan :confused:

Lanny,I feel for you.
If you have the catalog,try typing the model number in the search engine.
It will take you to that model.Or easier yet,look under Boker classic.
We are in the process of trying to improve the webpage,but it may take awhile,Christmas is a very busy time for everyone here.

I would like to see the Kalashnikov 74 autos improved. A thicker and therefore a bit wider blade and less blade play and therefore 20 bucks more would make them unbeatable on market.

Had one, liked it so far but gave it away to a friend, because i missed that points much.

Don´t buy S60V, buy S30V now!

A good selection of traditional pocket knives like some of the Bokers I grew up with. Like the stag handle trappers, stockman and barlows.

And it would be nice if some of those stockmen and Barlows had good carbon steel that was ground well, and with good Q.C.

Hmmmm, Sounds interesting! LOL! I agree w/ Unclezak...I mean, there are not too many well thought out neckers nowadays...Example being this TOPS knife I got called the Chico...it's sized for that guy Tatoo from Fantasy Island!!! LOL! Broad blade, guard, "enough handle"...*sigh* :D :D :D

Things are going okay I guess, aside from my Captain and a particular Lt trying to screw me...Bastids... :mad:

Keep in touch bro...and God bless!

I hate to say it,but I think the best necker has been made already,the custom LaGriffe by Fred.
But there is room for more!

You're right...about there being room for more! LOL! I prefer a necker that has a grip that can be drawn with either hand. When it hits the fan, you may not be able to grab and draw with whatever hand you planned to use "just in case"...

Well, take care bro, and keep me updated! ;)

God bless!

I'd like to see Boker release a Stainless lined, G10 handled Gemini, with a thicker lock and S30V steel. Boker Thumbstudes are the BEST.

Also I'd like to see a Tip Up option added to more Boker tac folders, the one thing I don't like about many of them.

While were talking wish lists, other than Spyderco :) and Case :) Boker is my favorite knife company. I'd like to see you guys show Benchmade (but leave Spyderco alone) just what German engineering can do for a knife. I'm talking an ultra high-tech, ultra-fast opening (non-assisted) knife with a brand new innovative lock system that would turn the market inside out. Keep a blade profile similar to the Gemini series and please keep those style thumbstuds. And have the knife allow tip up, down, left, and right carry. How about a Walter Brend style Handle with an S30V blade and a Ball-Bearing or Compression style lock produced under liscense from Spyderco. That would rock, Also just to really get the knife worlds ATTENTION have some big name designer put his name on the blade whether he designed it or not.

If German engineering can power the rockets that launched the Apollo space missions certainly you guys can build a higher tech folder than some good 'ole boys up in Oregon. What are you waiting for, get to work ;)

Here's something I would like to see:

As much as I love traditionals like the stockman, trapper, congress, and jack-knife, I always end up with a Victorinox SAK in my pocket.
When it comes to slip-joints, the SAK is just more verstile and offers greater utility.

Now, there are other makers who offer the typical "camping" style knife (main blade, can opener, bottle opener/screwdriver, and awl), but that is'nt what I'm looking for.
And I don't think Boker should try to compete with Victorinox and Wenger when it comes to the huge variety of multi-tool slip-joints.

But certain combos would be very handy without getting too "multi-tool or gadgety".

Keep it simple and don't try to offer every tool in the box--just a few handy ones:

Awl
Woodsaw
standard screwdriver
Electrician's blade (long blade with a flat screwdriver tip)

Just think about this one:
A two-blade Barlow with wood or bone scales, maybe titanium bolsters,
One blade maybe a spear-tip or sheepsfoot, the other blade a screwdriver/bottle-opener.

Maybe call it "The Longshoreman".


Thanks for listening,
Allen.
