“Ceramic V sharpener - I like that I found an easy to use product that can actually sharpen my kitchen knives! I like how it is easy to store the rods in the base. The whole thing is compact enough to be able to store easily, and big enough to sharpen big knives. I would have liked to have an eraser come with it. I didn't watch the whole video before buying so I didn't know I needed one. Apparently they are cheap but it would be so convenient to have it come as part of the product. Rating: 9/10. ”
“Boker Plus Steel Mariner - I’ve not seen many Boker fixed blades. This is only the second one in my possession. I should note first that the knife is very nice; but more on that in a minute. The sheath is a bit of a puzzle as the belt clip is worthless. How they came up with this design is a mystery. It is configured for horizontal carry with only two screws and is impossible to use effectively. I put the belt clip back in the presentation type box just in case this knife is ever sold. The new owner can at least have the benefit of seeing all the pieces and make his own decision. However, I have no intention of selling the knife. That may end up being my grandson’s decision when he inherits it.
As for the sheath proper, it retains the knife very securely so much so that the knife can be hung upside down. And there are loops and holes which will allow the unit to be mounted effectively on a back pack. As a dive knife, which this is, the alternative carry would need to utilize nylon straps with a buckle. As a defensive carry the only feasible method would be a nylon shoulder strap with locking hooks at each end secured in the two holes – one closest to the blade handle and the other at the sheath tip. The angle would provide a cross draw from a handle down and slanted position. This is quite effective though very obvious to observers unless you are wearing a button down something over it which, in hot weather, is not always ideal. Otherwise, the knife and sheath can be stored somewhere accessible as is. An alternative would be to purchase a leather or nylon aftermarket sheath to your liking. There are many available.
The knife itself is very nice. It is made of 440C steel which many folks today consider out of date compared to the new, expensive super steels. That’s a shame since 440C is and always was a very good steel and is inexpensive compared to today’s modern steels. For a dive knife it is ideal; and this knife is coated everywhere except the cutting edge with a titanium finish. The grip and feel of the knife is very nice. I would be reluctant to throw it, however, because the grips are only secured with two small screws. But as a fighting knife it should do well as a backup. Drawing it from the sheath requires a hefty pull since it is secured tightly; and that is why any carry method must be substantial unless you opt for a different sheath.
All in all, I rate the knife10, the sheath 5 and ½, and the belt clip 0. But for my purpose the knife is a keeper since I’m pretty good at improvising. Overall rating: 7/10. ”
“Boker Plus Stag Hunter - I have never been a Boker fan; but this knife is probably the finest example of their work. I have several Spanish knives made in Spain and can attest to their beauty. This knife was also made in Spain. I'm a big fan of 440C steel. I am very pleased to have this very limited blade. Everything about it is spot on perfect including the sheath. Thank you for having it available. I'm certain others will enjoy it as much as I. Rating: 10/10. ”
