Nice Knife but made in CHINA
This is a nice knife, but being made in China it takes my confidence level from at least an eight to about a four.
Companies try to guarantee quality control in Chinese factories, but I find too many products still get by the inspectors, not just from Boker, but countless other manufacturers that cut corners and manufacture in China.
The one good thing after having been suckered into thinking this was made anywhere else is that I learned that if a company doesn't proudly stamp the country of origin on their products, not only are they not proud of the product, but are trying to fool people into thinking they aren't buying Chinese garbage.
I rated this knife a five because it is of decent initial quality, but I absolutely would not trust it with my life, especially with China's reputation of using cheap, inferior materials and lying about it.
The blade is sharp, but so are the blades on many $5 knives.
I have lost so much confidence in Boker.
I purchased my Gent 2 from MidwayUSA ... and Midway, white sadly, couldn't even mention the country of origin.
Because these are Chinese knives I have purposed mine into a beater knife instead of a collector knife.
I wonder how long it will last in my truck, sitting in temps that range from as low as 12 degrees Farhenheit in the winter to 120 F in the summers ....
Anyway, if you're like me and country of origin means a lot to you, and you want to avoid corner-cutting, cheap Chinese products, then look around for something that you can put more confidence in.
I kept my knife, but I regret buying it.
