New Knife: Böker Plus Lancer

Böker Lancer

Böker introduced a new knife called the Lancer. The Lancer is a relatively compact folding knife that has a very flat appearance.

The Lancer is part of the Böker Plus line. The Plus line is made up of knives that are designed for professional users in the law enforcement, military and security markets. They are designed in Solingen, Germany and then manufactured in the United States, Asia and Europe.

The knife features a 3″ long blade that is made of 440C steel. Although the company does not specify, it seems to have a stonewash type finish on the blade. The handles are made of G10 with a titanium liner. The G10 is colored an olive drab color. A liner lock is used to keep the blade open.

When opened, the knife has an overall length of 7.0 ounces. With the titanium pocket clip, the knife weighs about 2.4 ounces. The pocket clip has the same stonewashed appearance the knife blade has. This keeps the overall look of the knife consistent.

This model was designed by Serge Panchenko, a knife maker who has done work with Spyderco in the past. The Dog Tag folding knife was a Panchenko design. It carries a suggested retail price of $94.95. According to Böker, the knife is available for purchase now.

      I was like “damn just using the titanium clip takes off almost 5 ounces what the hell is the other clip made of”

      This error occurs when you convert inches to metric and then back to imperial.

    I like my Boker Nanos, but 440c on a $100 blade is disappointing
