Bolsters are scratched pretty badly and one of the scales isnt attached correctly. Looks like it was kicked across the workshop floor. Boker have been less than helpful fixing this very disappointing
Made in China doesn't mean that it can't be a quality product. But mine did arrive with a loose handle so final QC in Germany doesn't necessarily mean flawless either.

I have headphones are German designed but built in China and they are durable, sound amazing but still affordable.

I guess my point is don't rely on where something was made as a baseline for quality.
Despite its obscure provenance, at this price I'd be tempted if it weren't for the gaudy "Tree Brand" printing on the blade. Does that bother anyone else? And honestly, does the logo really need to appear 3 times on the same side of the knife?
Yes, it does. A LOT of traditional folder makers do this, though. I wish they would cut it out!
I'd be on-board for this if the shipping wasn't so much. Even with a $10 credit on my account.

I'll think about it...
" This Boker gentleman’s knife is unique... It actually locks... with a lockback... carbon steel blade... nickel silver bolsters... brass liners for contrast... folder easy to carry..."

Really, Massdrop is supposed to be a platform for grouped purchase. There is no need to make excessively laudative description of every item like if it is the most unic beautiful thing in the world. Thousands of knives have a lockback, carbon steel blade, nickel bolsters, brass liners and are easy to carry (isn't it basic for a pocket knife?).
This knife is not bad, it is certainly made in China and there is nothing there extraordinary. It is even a not so cheap price for a made in China product.
So please, stay technical and simple.

I resemble that remark!
If this truly is a Boker (not a Plus) and is labelled "Tree Brand" it should be made in Solingen, Germany.
Just got mine and the handle is already loose. Back it goes...
Really? A "modern lock"? Just ran a quick google search....the first lockbacks date from the 1600's.....really modern.

It's a nice blade though.
A lot of knives in this category are slipjoints. I think that's what they're getting at. But you're right.
This knife looks beautiful. I want but would never use it. I am hardly a gentlemen.
Just got mine, fit and finish seem okay....

That being said, I think the blade is cheap stainless steel not plain carbon steel.
The pins are different than the one pictured in the drop, and the logo is much smaller on the blade.

can these be shipped to the UK
I like how the drop descriptions say "limited to 100 units" and meanwhile there are 111 purchases made.
It's saying one person can buy up to 100 units. At least that's what it USUALLY means
am i the only one who would prefer if the text on the blade was 1/10th the size?

Funny how the MD logo on a knifeblade doesn’t have people waxing nostalgic in the same way... :)
Yeah, not quite the same
It says Germany on the round plate on the grip. Does that mean it's made in China?

That wasn’t the reason for my snark. We all know that China can produce some great blades,just look at the We Falcon! I just hate when people say one country and not the actual place it is made, that is when it becomes suspect.
It is made in China. I just looked the knife up at the website below. It still is a very good value and knife for the price massdrop got it for you folks. It is a beautiful EDC for actual everyday use that has a bonus decorative element. If you want a better knife at this size, look to spend $100-$150 for a hand crafted LT Write Patriot EDC, or something equally as nice from Battlehorse Knives. That’s when you get into your knife for a life time categories.

Otherwise, this is a steal at the price provided.

Have a fantastic day! :)
