    Since Boker has a collaboration with Lucas Burnley, I would love to see them do a duplex grind that Lucas offers on his custom versions. Here's a pic. What do you guys think?

    It only took them 3 years to listen to you but you did it! Pretty cool little blade.

    Got mine with marbled CF. It's the best kwaiken so far, F&F is top notch. They even skeletonized the liners, I was pleasantly surprised.

    This Boker Kwaiken Duplex-blade (marbled CF) peaked my attention too. Been on the fence for the past couple of days over which model I want. Their green Micarta scales look awesome, but seems like that model has the stiff detent, so not a smooth opener. Boker should consider having a "build your own" option! Mine would be a micarta-scaled flipper, with a stonewashed, duplex blade!

    I always thought this is one of the coolest diy Boker Kwaiken projects. Modifying the thumb disk kwaikens into a low profile flipper. By cutting the scales/liners it exposes the corner of the blade tang.

    Note the exposed corner of the tang. I think it is an awesome way to make a low profile flipper. Seems like Alex Dietz is the one who discovered this mod.
