Blue Box: Boker Plus Burnley Kwaiken Folding Knife

About the Kwaiken

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.

What Are the Odds of an Upgrade?

Seventy-five percent of those who join are guaranteed to receive a Boker Kwaiken with either a Micarta or G-10 handle with an AUS-8 blade, but the other twenty-five percent of you will be lucky winners of an upgrade. The upper tiers feature VG-10—a high-carbon content steel manufactured in Japan—not to mention some potential handle upgrades like titanium and carbon fiber, too. Upgrades will be assigned to orders by means of a random number generator in the following proportions:

  • 50%: OD Green Micarta Handle / Satin AUS-8 Blade ($154.95 retail value)
  • 25%: Orange G-10 Handle / Stonewashed AUS-8 Blade ($154.95 retail value)
  • 15%: G-10 Handle / Satin VG-10 Blade ($219.00 retail value)
  • 5%: Titanium Handle / Satin VG-10 Blade ($225.00 retail value)
  • 3%: Textured G-10 Handle / Black VG-10 Blade ($229.00 retail value)
