Where's the price?

It might be cheap junk, but at least it's ugly. This and the AC Cobra could go head to head. Or butt to butt. Maybe I can console myself with the horrid looking ergos. Even if I liked it, I am not sure that I would buy a Boker Plus without having it in my hands. It's certainly a step up from the Magnum series, but it is not where the Arbolitos or the German ones are. Altho the blade is probably too thin to snap in two (1/16") I will end on a positive note. The materials are certainly good.
Cheap junk, mine broke within 2 days
Deserve the price, the blade is sharp out of the box and it's perfect to carry around. 823/1000
Light, useful and good looking knife!
This is one of the coolest things I own now. I'm surprised by how light and slim it actually is. 828/1000
I reached out to Massdrop and just never got a response, but what's up with the "limited to 100 units" and then 120 sold?

There are 1000. MD has 100. Or more, if they have sold 120.
Thanks, that explains a lot.
I’d jump if they beefed it up and put Besh Wedge geometry in place. Then it’s be a pretty neat little pry tool and knife combo. Other reviewers specifically mention that the construction is not very robust so I must pass. Too bad, as it’s got a cool little sexy / ugly vibe about it.
I'd get one if it was a front flipper
Anyone got their knives yet? I ordered two knives from China by boat after this one shipped and they already arrived. Still a few more days for the Boker to come.
I don't remember from when I checked out but does Massdrop offer upgrades to shipping?

Sadly, no.
Make it a flipper and I would buy this yesterday
The siren call of limited edition and the chance to try out D2 finally sold me.
Plus, the reviews on CountyComm are all positive: https://countycomm.com/products/titanium-boker-d2-chap

Thanks for the input. Just a little too late as my knife already arrived. 😅
Yup, I agree with all of your points and getting ready to write a review but waiting til I've had more time using it. Still on the fence about whether I should return this, but if there's any shipping cost involved then its not worth it.
bookworm13
Yeah, sorry. I didn't even look at the date.
when I first looked at this knife I thought it looked dumb but the more I stare at it the more I like it.
TheSkeleton
Same here.
TheSkeleton
Yeah theres a similar phenomenom in bars,the more beer you consume the better she looks.
Perfect size! Been looking to upgrade that wimpy knife that came with my action-figure/man-doll!

Are you making fun of Sylvester's lazy-eye?

No, no, no! When a doctor points it out, it’s called a ‘diagnosis’, lol! 🤔😉
I own the Pelican, and it's a great little knife. It's so slim that it actually fits into the slash pocket of CountyComm's NYLA frontpocket wallet.
It can be one-handed, and the knife is just a solid little tool. Really, it's big enough for the tasks that most of us use knives for; the Chap is probably a concession to people with gigantic mitts.
Looks just like the Boker Ti Pelican (Brad Zinker Mini Tanto Flipper design), only a slight bit bigger..

Almost bought the Pelican, but ended up getting the smaller (and slightly cheaper) Wesn Ti Microblade instead (great little knife that MD should do a drop on)..

Honestly not sure if he's under any obligation to give you a complete refund on a faulty product (unless he stated he would), so I'm guessing that he's probably just going to either repair or replace it under their lifetime warranty. Since they're still backed up 2-4 weeks for new orders, I wouldn't expect to receive anything for at least a month. After that, I'd consider posting about it on his Instagram, as he seems more active with the customers there. He's likely trying to run this company without much help and probably trying to work a regular job at the same time (not trying to excuse anything, just thinking about it realistically). Either way, I still wish you luck!

Just to clarify, they did say they would issue a refund if I sent it back to them and provided the tracking info - so it's not like I just sent it back to them blindly or like I've had no communication with them whatsoever.
I'm generally not a fan of cheaper production companies like Boker, but I am smitten by this design; signed up immediately. Hopefully it's manufactured with decent quality.

It is is a self governing Provence that it itself doesn't not want to be a part of china, china refuses to accept that its not a part of itself, and the rest of the world is afraid to chime in due to political balances trying to be kept in check.
It is different but it also isn't. Manufacturing there in general is much better than the generalized Chinese manufacturing, but the really good Chinese company's like WE are still some of the best.
What. Is. This? I think I like it, but feel like I shouldn’t. I'm so confused.
So a bigger Pelican with D2 instead of VG-10, for around the same price? Seems like a solid deal to me.
Actually can this be one handoed?

I'd assume so. I feel like if you can't open it with the nick with the pad of your thumb, you could probably use your thumbnail to push it. Might be a little awkward, but still.

Definitely can NOT be one handed. If you loosen the blade pivot enough to have it open easily the blade will touch the liner. Bearings would have help as it only has (probably teflon) washers. The nail nick is not enough to get a purchase on with your thumb and the detent is too strong.
Ten bucks cheaper than the only other place it's sold, looks like a good deal to me!
This is a weird looking design in some ways, looks great for the few people who can carry a locking but not one handed knife, or need it to be small.

Yes there's a bunch actually: salsa, cat, leafstorm, etc. Spyderco launched a big small knife push a while back. I was thinking about picking up a lil' native (2.47" compression lock) I just wish the carry was a bit "deeper". I work in a business environment, so unless I'm actively opening things I like it to stay out of sight. Lots of good info here: http://www.spyderco.com/forumII/viewtopic.php?t=72532 https://www.spyderco.com/forumII/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=70295
I just wish there were more options in this space, especially since there's quite a few places that require it (some cities, as well as all federal facilities). When I'm not in boston I've carried my Benchmade 470 for the last 6 years.
There's some stuff in this space, like the Kershaw Shuffle currently dropping. It's "sorta" deep carry, but if I pull that out people are gonna flip. Custom knives are a possability too: olamic busker for example, but I just keep looking at all these fancy knives that come out and they stick up like 1cm out of the pocket, and have to pass...

I'm happy that Maine typically has one set of knife laws, it is better than the headache of having super specific city carry requirements.
Especially at the arcane 2.5" limit.
