For this drop, we’ve partnered with Boker to offer an exclusive selection of the company's best-selling Kwaiken models, as well as a few extras. By joining, you’ll at least receive a Boker Kwaiken with a black G-10 handle and a VG-10 blade. But you’ll also have a chance to receive an upgraded Kwaiken with a better handle and a better blade, plus additional prizes that will be unlocked as more members join the drop. See below for more details. Good luck!
Note: Please read below for upgrade and prize odds in this Blue Box drop. Due to the sensitive nature of shipping knives internationally, we are able to ship only some of the knives on Massdrop to select countries. It is the responsibility of the buyer to know and comply with all importation regulations and local laws. Click here for additional information.
The Lucas Burnley–designed Kwaiken is based on a short-range combat and household knife used in Ancient Japan. Shaped like a samurai sword—only shorter—it offers exceptional piercing power and slicing ability. Burnley originally gained recognition for his fixed-blade version of the Kwaiken, but decided to make it in the form of a folder in 2004. Since, it’s become one of the most popular knives in his, and the Boker, collection. The blade is deployed with the IKBS pivot system for smooth action, and it locks in place with a liner lock.
Fifty percent of those who join are guaranteed to receive a Boker Kwaiken with a G-10 handle and a VG-10 blade, but the other half of you will be lucky winners of an upgrade. You could get a titanium-handled model of the flipper, a G-10 model with a versatile duplex grind, a carbon fiber–handled model, or, if you're really lucky, a titanium and damascus model that'll really make a statement. Upgrades will be assigned to orders by means of a random number generator in the following proportions:
We’ll also be offering other prizes, in addition to the possibility for an upgrade, as more members join the drop. Every purchase counts as an individual entry for these prizes. There are a total of four possible prizes, and each is unlocked when the respective number of units is purchased.
Always fascinated by the wilderness, stories of survival, and action movies, Lucas Burnley decided to make his passion a reality in 2003 when he founded Burnley Knives. With the bulk of his experience derived from trial and error, Burnley has earned a reputation as a reliable craftsman by combining elements of classic knives with an emphasis on modern materials. “To me knives are a personal expression of independence and self reliance,” he says. “Starting with raw materials, I’m able to create intrinsically useful and aesthetically pleasing tools and objects of pride that can be used and passed down for generations.
