This is a very high quality knife. It's well made and designed. The hilt fits over the blade with no gaps. The hilt is thick, strong, and could easily stop a sword if used for blocking. The blade is not what I expected. it comes up 2" before being sharp. I was puzzled at first then realized it is part of the blocking. My only complaint about it is that even though it came sharp, it wasn't sharp enough. Note* if it's not sharp enough to shave with... it's not sharp enough. The case is also very high quality leather. Nice design on the front. Only thing is that covers the front of the knife handle and gets in the way of drawing it. Easily fixed by trimming it down . This knife is a VERY good deal at under $50. After seeing it I would have been willing to pay more.
That's my second one. The first one came with the ball broken on top of the dagger, so I decided to buy another one but this time around it came out fine.
This knife is very sharp and functional in design. We actually used the knife in a dangerous situation with one of our horses and it cut the rope one stoke. On the downside you need to be very careful as when my wife was removing it in the stressful situation she accidentally cut herself on the thumb (minor only needed a band aid). As to size it fits in her boot very nicely on mine the sheath is a little thick with the extra pocket so I have been looking for another sheath or thinking about cutting off the extra material to make it thinner. Overall horse people are all over the board on whats best to carry while riding but this one did the job when the time came to use it in an emergency situation.
I got a pair of these, so I can carry them in a shoulder rig. These knives aren't made for camping, because dagger. Boker underdog (not undergod dumass) is way sharp. And the needle sharp point, nasty serrations and grippy handle means this blade is staying in your hand, under the wettest nastiest conditions. The pommel has a metal end the shape of a hammer that screws on; making the knife handle secured to the blade. I'm pretty sure you could drive a nail with it, and it sure will do some damage as soon as it makes contact with skin and bones. There's only one purpose to a knife made like this; personal protection / offensive / defensive / intimidation factor this knife has all that and more. The sheath is made in such a way so you can configure it in multiple carry options, high on the belt, low on the belt, tied on the bottom strapped on the leg, and it stays put. The polymer handle has a nice grippy feel to it, and more than finger guards, they're hand protection so you can really push on it hard. Nice lanyard hole at the pommel end, snap closure on the sheath and did I say needle sharp? I spoze you could cut a piece of para-cord with it, but who cares? I didn't get these daggers to go camping, and it's so intimidating; I've yet to actually strap it on and leave the house yet! I'm working on the double shoulder harness, and then these guard dogs are goin' for a walk. When it comes to Boker, you can always count on the highest quality for the buck and this blade is no exception. Anyone who owns this blade is happy they got it, and those that haven't yet; they want one. Do it. You'll be smiling happy.
Great product; I bought 4 and gave as gifts. Sturdy and well-made. Great price and service as always from Knife Depot.
The handle is well made and fits in my smallish hands well. The blade seems sturdy and the sheath seems good quality. My only gripes are that the blade came somewhat dull and I don't have anything to sharpen it with. Also the clip on the sheath is not locking, so it is basically useless. I had to buy an aftermarket locking clip so the sheath will stay attached to your clothing when you remove the knife.
one of the best made knives of this type I have ever owned.
I would like it to be more concealable.
