Something I'm almost ashamed of. It's a Boker, it's AUS8, and it's really, really nice!

Boker Burnley Kwaiken, just came out a month or so ago I believe. Great fit and finish, IKBS, very slim and comfortable, nice lines. Solid lock up, no blade play, opens fast and smooth. First thing I did when I took it out of the box was to take it apart and hit the frame with the bench grinder, exposing the blade tang to be used as a flipper. Neat little mod that takes all of five minutes, and greatly improves the usability of the knife. I'll clean it up tomorrow with some 400 grit. The blade was perfectly centered when I got it, it's just a hair off after taking it apart, but I should be able to adjust it back to center without any problems once I'm done cleaning up the frame where I modded it.

Never thought I'd spend ninety bucks on AUS8, but it's well worth it!
