I have several Boker electricians. These knives get razor sharp so easily and are fun knives. I picked this up recently here on the AAPK store. An electician of a different color. Re handled in blue bone, Solingen and in really nice shape. Love it.

Good find!

Yep, that will be a good carry knife for a good while longer!

Enjoy!

Got this new Boker today. I like it very much with the Curly Birch handle and the N690 Blade with a half-stop. Every seam is a perfect match. The blade is well centered with no rubbing against the liners. At 2 oz. it's perfect for any pocket. It came with a felt carrying pouch and I don't know why unless that is where you want to carry it with other items when you travel, excellent case.

I haven’t posted any new pickups in a while. Wanted to share my Boker I picked up late last year. I’ve been extremely happy with it.
Stay safe everyone,
Phil

Nice Boker. For a using knife smooth covers are my favorite such as your smooth bone.[I think that is bone.]

Thank you sir! It is smooth yellow bone. The main blade doesn’t have the etching Boker has been using as of late. All in all I find it’s an excellent stockman.
Stay safe everyone!

Nice! I am no expert, but I would guess someone put that shield on. The shields were notorious for coming off. Still, that’s a nice old Boker! ::tu:: :D

This somewhat unusual Boker stiletto was waiting in the mailbox today! I say unusual because besides the Magnum model in the last picture showing the comparison it is the only other stiletto by Boker I have seen. It's a Chuck Gedraitis designed 7 1/4" oal A/O linerlock stiletto/VG-10 bayonet blade with thumb-wheel, single blue anodized liner, black carbon fiber covers with titanium blue anodized decorative ball inlay, blue anodized screws, and titanium blue anodized non-removeable pocket-clip. Cool little stiletto! 8)
