    Boker/Wagner

    Welp I've talked about it and talked about it, finally decided to break down and get one. Wagner is a good guy, and heard him pitch his design when we worked together, so I ordered mine last night. It will be here Monday or Tuesday so looks like I'll have to go get some stuff and run a lil test next week. Lets pray for sunshine next week and I'll post the review once it gets here.

    Those are nice knives. I keep saying it's the next knife I want to buy, but it so damn big. At least for me, I'd want to pocket carry it & I don't need it for work anymore (I don't get out of the station unless it's to eat.

    I have had my eye on those since they were brought to my attention when I was looking for a new knife. Something keeps telling me I should buy one.

    I look forward to seeing your tests of it.

    I've been looking at them myself. If you give it a good review I think I'll order one. By the way there is a mint Emerson Spec War on ebay. I'm trying not to bid.

    I just received an email that said it has been shipped. I knew Jim (Wagner) and he sold me on the size. I am posting the link to a review done of the knife, which gives its history and explains in detail each and every specific reason for each design item. This knife is designed, made for one reason, fighting. Its not designed as a package opener, its designed specifically for defensive/offensive reasons and should be carried with that in mind. No saying to a lawyer that it was carried for your daily chores and used for self defense.

    Jim put alot of thought into this blade based on his experiences and all the guys I know who bought them love them. As far a it being big that was a concern, but with the extra tip and clip that makes it look like a ink pen, the blade sinks into you pocket and truly every guy I know with one looks like he has an ink pen stuck into his pocket. Kinda a joke around the office as to if thats a ink pen in your pocket or something a little sharper (either there are alot of Boker/Wagners in our office or alot of guys have taken to carrying ink pens in their right front pant pockets in the past year that they never did before).

    This link takes you to an article that was written in The Martialist magazine. http://www.themartialist.com/1206/wa...alityblade.pdf.

    It's a decent knife. I'm in the middle of going through some of Wagner's instructional materials for a review article.
