Wish you didn't because of crap quality or a hurt on your wallet?

I have 2 and stopped there when I was ahead.

Both from when they first started up over 15 years ago...

The mighty Evo, never to be made again, that is, except for last years look alike made by bark river for Blackjack.

And the Rogue limited issue first production run blah blah blah

I like them both, but I'm done.

Are they crap?

 

The Boone and the Elkhart look nice. The different handle choices are intriguing.

Here's my Spyderco Standard from the early 90's. First thing I bought with my paper route money.

Nice Spyderco classic there Seal....does anyone have a Spyderco Salt (Pacific or other)...I'm wondering how rust-resistant that steel is ...I remember someone starting a thread way back when they first came out...Im looking for a new knife for my plug-bag or surf belt....:rav:

It's confusing...you've got "Boker", "Boker Plus" and "Boker Magnum".

 

Magnum is all Chinese.  Hoping not to offend anyone but it's iffy.

 

Plus is Chinese but they sprinkle in Argentinian as well.  Some fixed blades with stag handles aren't bad at all.  Some AUS-8 steel, thoughtful designs but all in all...not their best effort.

 

Boker is a hodge podge.  Like I mentioned...it CAN say "Tree Brand" right on the blade.  I don't know that it matters.  For example, on the exact same Boker blade I ordered (same Boker part #) Knife Country says "Made in China.  House of Blades says "Made in Germany, Discount Cutlery says "Made in China" and then Amazon carefully DOES NOT say until you get to the Q/A and their vendor says "Made in Germany".  Your guess is as good as mine?

I think Boker Arbolito was the Argentinean, Boker Tree German, and Biker Plus the Chinese made. I could be mistaken though.

You are correct sir...  Arbolito makes some really nice stuff out of Argentina (they bought someone out but couldn't guess who).  Real stag and decent steel

 

Boker Plus and then Magnum are all Chinese.  Funny though, check out the Boker "Bob", the "Rhino" and then the "Gnome".  Sure, it's Asian but Boker was smart enough to pay Vox for the designs.

 

The other one is Boker "Cinch" which I'd never heard of before.  From the Knife Depot website..."Made in Germany".  Says they're all about traditional knives.  Prices seem reasonable.

Okay my last Purchase for a few months came in today... My first experience with Ruike...  I can’t find fault with it  in terms of fit  or finish or operation... and it’s not Chinese Steel
