Boker Plus is the Asian-import division of the legendary Böker company of Solingen, Germany. I purchased my first Böker Plus knife, a Taiwanese-made Kalashnikov 74 Auto this past Cyber Monday from Blade HQ. I could not love it more, especially for the $29.99 sale price. I actually bought 2, keeping the reverse tanto for myself and giving the dagger-blade one to the owner of my Krav Maga studio as a gift. I plan on writing a review of mine in the coming weeks.
Böker has just released a new addition to the Plus line, a Jim Burke-designed VG-10 flipper they are calling the Hitman. Don’t let the name fool you, this is not a dedicated fighting-knife, rather looks to be a solid choice in an EDC blade.
