    New knives - Boker and Kershaw.

    It's new knife day again. Just took delivery of a Boker Fixed Subcom and a Kershaw Chive in pink, the latter being a birthday something for Rollergirl.

    First impressions on the Boker are very good, it's 440C. I already have a CRKT Ryan Plan B in my truck and this Boker looks like it is a far better knife than that. I have had two Boker Subcom folders (plain and serrated - plain one got gifted to my FIL) and really like the knife in general. The fixed version is larger, but still very concealable around the neck as intended or modified for pocket, belt or truck.

    It's a keeper.

    The Kershaw is a lot more knife than I thought it would be, it's a tiny little thing and it's pink but even so it's well made and the assisted opening is as good as any knife at that price range. Very cool locking function makes it perfect for key ring carry so it's good that they provide a hole for that very purpose.
    My wife is forever asking to use my knife, now she can use her own.
    I'm impressed, I will have to try a few more Kershaws now.

    Pictures included for size comparisons mainly.

    Those are nice knives. The Kershaw is deceiving closed, looks like a good blade open.

    Boker really did a good job their subcom series & that fixed subcom looks like one nice neck knife.

    I have 2 subcoms (A desert with combo blade, & a wharcom). Because I also have a HAK, I've been thinking about selling one of the subcoms (I didn't get any takers for the HAK).

    Anyways, nice pair of knives there, .02, very nice.

    That Chive appears to be just a tad smaller version of my Scallion - a knife that is EDC now for quite some time. Very compact item.

    I like the opening and it has held an edge remarkably well over time even with some less than kind useage!

    Yeah HAKs are tricky to sell I guess as they're fitted, but I'm surprised nobody bought yours as it was priced well and saves a LOT of waiting time.

    You should probably PM me your eBay name, I bet we have outbid each other in the past. I'd be prepared to stop bidding on something if you were in higher than me.

    I carry a Kershaw tactical Blur everyday and love it!
    I like that the clip can be moved, and it is lightning fast after break-in and practice. (looking back 20 yrs I never would have guessed that a folder would be so quick - and with one hand!)
    Kershaw makes a good knife, and anything Ken designs is sure to be a winner.
    Nice knives. I love that new knife feeling almost as much as that new firearm feeling.

    I second the remark about the Kershaw Blur. I picked one up last week in red/black and it is indeed fast on the draw. AND SHARP!!

    I'm a big Kershaw fan also...I own three of them. I switch between a Leek and a Blur as my EDC, and I keep a Rescue Blur with my EMS/Search and Rescue gear.
