Boker Plus Apparo 02BO001 - 440C Blade - Cord Wrapped Hollow Handle

Even before the First Blood movie made them popular, the knife market has seen numerous survival knives with hollow handles. Many of them should only be regarded as mere show pieces, due to a lack of stability. However, Newton Martin from Texas has developed a construction which is virtually indestructible, despite the screwed tang and handle. Extreme bending tests with this fixed blade have permanently deformed the blade before any kind of weak points were noticeable at the point of connection. International experts have been highly enthusiastic about the presentation of these custom knives, and now Boker is extremely proud to present this successful concept by Martin Knives as an exclusive Boker Plus product.

It's massive blade has a thickness of 6.8 mm, and is made of high performance 440C stainless steel. The construction of the handle provides an entirely waterproof compartment inside the handle, for the safe storage of additional equipment (not included). The cord wrapping of the handle not only increases the grip but also provides several valuable meters of stable rope in case of an emergency. Due to the milled checkering, the handle also provides a safe amount of grip in various conditions without the wrapping. The prominent handguard enhances the secure handling of the knife. The handle and blade have a matte, non-reflective blasted finish. The Boker Plus Apparo is knife without compromise, ready for any adventure! Includes a high quality black leather sheath.

    Honestly I cant say enough about this knife, or the Cutlery Shoppe!!! The customer service is awesome! Above and beyond.
    The knife is even better then it looks in the factory pics. Quality is top-notch. Very well refined. Not a novelty hollow handled Rambo knife... this is the real deal! You cant beat the price, especially here ( Its a bit over 1/4 inch thick witch is about the same thickness as the famous Buckmaster 184. I have the original 184 and I put them back to back with no visible difference in thickness. That was a big deal for me.
    Unfortunately the sheath is kinda cheap-ish. I seen almost all reviews were the same about this sheath "bad" ...I have to say though its not as bad as all that. I would say the better way to put it is its not too the quality of the knife. A perfect upgrade at only $50 is the (SULLIVANS maker of RANDALL SHEATH #9676) ...its 100% better.
    Thank you much Jeff!!! Your Sharp! ;)
