    Not all knives need to come with a hole for a lanyard. This is one of them. I'll still be buying AT LEAST 1.

    I'd love to see a steel upgrade instead of the titanium scales. Still, nice one.

    I agree. Sure it's titanium, but with that 200 dollar price tag it should have something better than 440c, at bare minimum d2 if not 154cm.

    I gotta say, Boker nails 440C.

    That was my first thought as well. I like the look of the Kwaiken, but not ready to give $200.00 for it with or without the lanyard hole.

    What's that bump on the top of the handle edge?

    Kwaiken folder was pretty streamlined.
    as for the flipper protrusion,
    just not entirely convinced that
    the metamorphosis is truly complete.

    They really need to get rid of that damn lanyard hole.

    I wish they would upgrade the steel to at least n690co. 200 bucks just seems like a lot for 440c. Sure it hast titanium, but you can get other knives with similar construction for under 200. Spyderco Sage 2, Spyderco Chapparal, Bradley Alias II. Even the Bradley Alias I is only $206 if you shop around. There are probably others out there with titanium handles and better steels. I keep going back and forth on the Boker Burnley Kwaiken, and have friends that feel the same. It's just too much for the steel you get. At least the knife nuts I talk agree. I'm hoping that maybe the 440c is pre production and that productions will have upgraded steel.

    Although an upgrade of the steel to N690BO would be nice, for the flipper Boker did upgrade from AUS-8 on the regular Kwaiken to 440C for the flipper. Also, the street price for the flipper here in the U.S. will probably be around $130 not $200.
