Boker has recently released a series of knives called their Lil Friend knives. Although, I will admit I am not in love with the name, these little beauties perform well beyond their stature. Currently, the series consists of a Tanto, a Clip, a Micro, and an Arrowhead. These Boker fixed blade knives can be found on our site here.
Here is what is so great about these knives. Each one weighs 1.6 ounces or less. That is incredibly lightweight. The Arrowhead weighs in at .6 of an ounce. This means that you can carry these knives around your neck with the included sheath and bead chain and you have yourself a handy tool that is always available.
Next, these little knives are built with you in mind. The Tanto, Micro and Clip all have G-10 handle scales that make them feel bigger than they are. This allows you to get a nice, solid grip on them when making serious cuts. The blades are 440 stainless steel and will cut through just about whatever you put in front of them. Easy to sharpen, good corrosion resistance, and good edge retention are all reasons to love 440.
Finally, a small knife comes in handy in so many ways. It doesn’t take up a ton of room in your pocket–if that is how you decide to carry your Lil Friend. If you neck carry, it is handy for whenever the need arises. Looking for a solid neck knife–check out the newest additions to our full line of Boker Knives.
