From the classic German knifemaker Boker – who makes every manner of cutlery and EDC tools, from straight razors to tac pens – comes the Bandit Knife, a short, sweet clip point designed by Hungarian knifemaker Peter Farkas. Clip points, with their almost “clipped off” blades, are perfect for hunting, as the tip allows for precise, controlled puncturing – such as you might need when skinning game. While the Boker Plus Bandit Knife doesn’t have that traditional “cut off” look, it was created to be slim and tough at once, with a 440C stainless steel blade, flat ground and with a stonewashed finished. The blade also features a full-tang construction for sheer strength and durability, with a pronounced thickness around the tang to protect against flexing.
The scales are drilled carbon fiber, keeping things light and slim, and the spine and choil are very notched to give you a firm grip. The blade is 2.75” and when opened, the knife is 6.75”, weighing 5.18 ounces. So this isn’t a super-light blade, but it is built for any task you could ask for it. Boker includes a nice leather sheath for carrying on your belt. Whether you need it for hunting, survival situations or just all-around use, the Bandit Knife makes a solid fixed-blade EDC.
