Does anyone have one of these? or any info / opinion on them?




The Boker plus Apparo is very similar to the Jack Crain Life Support knives used for the original Predator movie.





I've always wanted one since then. I might have to pick up a Boker plus Apparo soon. Any info or reviews would be appreciated. Thanks, Lee

$190 for a Chinese made 440 knife is a bit steep. Let me reword that actually. $190 for a Chinese made 440 knife is a borderline scam.

Boker has some nice designs. Problem is they price them high and hide the country of origin markings, while etching all of their German name crap on the blade so most people are under the assumption they're buying a German made knife. Friends don't let friends buy Bokers that cost more than $50.

Yep, true. Cool design but you're in the neighborhood of an ESEE 6 for that kind of money.

The review was pretty positive. I was wondering if anyone here had one yet.

Knifecenter.com has them for $128.95

I bought a Spartan Harsey Hunter II and then wrapped some paracord around the handle, so far it's pretty appealing but I have yet to use it out in the field.
