Another day, another new switchblade.

I was flipping through the Boker page, and I saw a Kalashnikov with a clip point blade, like a Bowie knife.

Well, I am one Boker down, so this seemed like a good time to remedy that injustice. And my wife was gone...

And it's not like I don't support my bros in the metal trade. Hey, 2sharp2 gets his knife on Wednesday, and I have to wait to the end of the week!

And his wife's new knife will be polished, and I have to find a guy...

Yeah, I saw that one too. Very interesting. I may order one for a gift. I've really got my eye on a Black/Black with the tanto blade for myself I've never had that blade in a folder.

I'm very pleased with my Boker Kalashnikov so far. It had a bit of coarseness to the button right out of the box. But after a drop of light oil and 50 or so snaps it has smoothed out nicely. It will be my EDC for the foreseeable future we'll see how she holds up.

My tan/tan Boker had that same roughness out of the box. I put a very tiny dab of Sentry Solutions Tuf-Glide on the button portion inside the handle. Then I just started to use it as a tool in my EDC.

I know lots of guys who want their tools "all broke-in right now." I believe that simply shortens their life. I open my switchblades to cut something or check the edge. Over time they "slick up" by themselves.

As for the clip-point version of the Kalashnikov, I can't wait, either!

(That last line might not be clear. I cannot wait, because I have already ordered one. I will do a showcase when it arrives).
