    I'm looking at the Boker Hunter vs. the full sized Boker Scout. Both are lockbacks, both are roughly the same size. Hunter has a 440C blade, Scout has N690. Other than that, and choice of scales, any other differences? Anyone prefer one model over the other for any reason?

    You mean between these? ...

    440C vs. N690
    STAG vs. Micarta.
    saber grind vs. full flat grind.

    the lockback hunter sure is pretty, but I'm just a user kind of guy and..
    N690 holds an edge noticeably better than 440C
    For a user, I prefer Micarta. It's harder to damage.
    IMO full flat grind does a better job as a slicer than the saber grind.

    So if it were I, I would choose the "Davis Classic Hunter". YMMV.

    Thanks. You got the Lockback Hunter right, but I was choosing between the Hunter and the Scout below. Any preference between these two?[​IMG] en it and the Lockback Scout
