First Production: Mirror-Finish Blade, Wood Scales

A limited-edition run of 2,500 pieces (max), this Boker Plus Kwaiken from Lucas Burnley is available now only on Massdrop. This exclusive version features upgraded materials, including handle scales made from Bubinga wood (a variation of African rose wood) and a blade that’s been through multiple stages of polishing to reach a mirror finish. Combining the best features from gentleman’s folders and tactical knives, the Kwaiken's 3.5-inch blade is made from high-carbon Japanese VG-10 stainless steel for excellent edge retention and corrosion resistance. Thanks to the IKBS pivot system, it's easily deployed with a simple press on the flipper tab. The full-size handle is tapered for a solid grip during detail work and more rigorous tasks. Use the titanium pocket clip for tip-up carry on the right side.

Note: Quantities are limited. Due to the sensitive nature of shipping knives internationally, we can only ship this knife 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.

Got my knife today (4/21/18). I just wanted to share some of my thoughts with the community because of all the bad knives that people were getting in the earlier drops. The reason I pulled the trigger on this was because it was definitely one of the coolest versions of the kwaiken ive ever seen and it was 99 bucks which is cheaper than any other kwaiken on BladeHQ.... So I pulled the trigger. How are they now? I've listed below the pros and cons of MY particular knife. https://massdrop-s3.imgix.net/img_comment/2cBFCyGATDG26OS7c1cF_IMG_8551.JPG Boker Kwaiken Wooden Mirror #1203 CONS: My knife was clearly opened before I got it. The silver safely seal was broken. I was a little bummed by this because on a brand new knife you wouldn't expect something like this. I suspect that Massdrop were conducting their own quality control because of all the bad knives that were going out earlier. I know it wasn't USPS because the massdrop padded envelope packaging was unmolested when i received it: https://massdrop-s3.imgix.net/img_comment/yPN0lnN5TPmxNoPucM5s_IMG_8554.JPG Second, the blade grind clearly favors the left side. Its not bad enough that I would send it back to MD, but its definitely there. https://massdrop-s3.imgix.net/img_comment/fiKmZPUrTYKVkDvYQlyL_IMG_8553.JPG Third is that the blade shouldnt be advertised as a mirror finish. Its more like a hazy carnival fun-mirror if you catch my drift. If you put it right up against stuff like I did in my image and how they do it in the stock image, it will appear to be a mirror finish.... but anything over 3 inches away forget about it. I would say its more of a highly polished finish and not a mirror finish: https://massdrop-s3.imgix.net/img_comment/ZBNRbG3VQMayrqJhnrJe_IMG_8558.JPG Now for the GOOD: Knife is gorgeous. Scales are beautiful. However like people said before they do come unfinished so I recommend putting something like balistol or some other wood finish on it so your knife doesn't absorb any foreign liquids and stain. https://massdrop-s3.imgix.net/img_comment/GwFJbF0JR26qKyuk3Fbg_IMG_8552.JPG Second, fit and finish are very nice. Blade is perfectly centered and the overall build is certainly of high quality. The blade could have come a bit sharper (can sort of shave but not really.) This isn't an issue for me because I enjoy putting my own edge on it anyways. https://massdrop-s3.imgix.net/img_comment/lyzkGWPOSJWBLbscdcgt_IMG_8555.JPG Overall: Good knife and if it drops again I recommend picking one up. For 99 bucks you cant beat it when you compare it to the standard kwaiken offerings.
