Boker/Burnley Kwaiken collaboration

 Just got the go ahead from Boker to release these pictures.

This is the prototype for my first collaboration with Boker, The Kwaik has been my most popular model to date and I cant wait for the factory version to debut.
I haven't held one yet but from the pictures it looks like they nailed it, the fit and finish is spot on.

This one doesn't have the logos on it yet, and one that it will be getting is the IKBS logo!

Titanium liners, green canvas micarta scales and IKBS, this should be a sweet edc.

The Kwaiken will be out in Bokers spring catalog

Really looking forward to these hitting the streets!

Flash orders

This is something new that I'm going to try.
A lot of times after running a batch of knives I will end up with a few pieces extra that either aren't exactly what anyone has on order or an order that someone has canceled, usually I just finish these out how I want and send them out to my mailing list. I also have knives that I'm not really making anymore or were prototypes etc.

The flash Order is an idea that I came up with to try something a little different.

Basically, I'll post up a knife that is in progress, it might be a heat treated blank, it may have scales cut, the blade ground or be almost finished etc.

If someone decides that they want it, they can then have some control over how its finished, depending on where its at you might be able to pick the type of grind, the handle material, back spacer or blade finish etc.

The bonus is that there will basically be no wait time, maybe a week or two at most before you get your order.

I was thinking this might be a little more interactive way of selling available knives, I wont stop posting stuff to my mailing list but offer this in addition.


So here's the first one.

This is a raven with a clip point blade in CPM 154
It's set up for Ti bolsters and carbon scales...BUT if you want something else let me know, maybe full Lightning strike scales?? Od micarta?
Want it textured? cool. Maybe Viral finish, handrubbed, two tone?
IKBS or washers?

Lots of ways to go,

Base price is $550.00 Thanks guys this one is sold :)

Set up with bolsters and carbon Fiber it would $675.00

Goes to the first person to respond with an I'll take it! 

Here's a finished one just for reference (different blade shape)

Bullies Available

Hey Guys,
I have two bullies ready to roll, the Bullie is a great all around field knife, small enough to carry comfortably or strap on to a pack but stout and wide for serious work, with a neutral handle profile that works well with or without gloves.

These are both set up the same way, 3/16 D2 with flat ground stone washed blades, Topo textured desert camo G10 scales, and Kydex rigs with Techloks

As always they will go to the first two people to respond with an "I'll take it email"

Thanks :)

Price - $315.00 + Shipping Both sold, thanks
