On the plus side, once the blade is open, the ergonomics are good--It fits the hand well. Boker also includes the tiny TORX wrench and another special tool to replace the so-called 'glass-breaker tip' with a tip that looks like a ball point pen, and that's definitely good. With the pen tip in place, this looks exactly like a pen in your pocket; also a plus.
I carry and use a knife every day as a cutting tool. This is not suited to that purpose. As a defensive weapon, it could make small puncture wounds of 1 5/8" or less. It's best feature is it's super low profile.
First I don't like being negative about blades because I like them so much as a daily companion, it just seems like this one does nothing really well. Its a shorter, more complicated, less ergonomic prison shank made out of a toothbrush and a razor blade fused together. Lets go into more detail about its issues.
Not nearly as long as a pen so it starts out feeling odd. Should have been longer as it would not have been less concealable, but would have been more controllable for the expert and novice alike.
The worst part is that it opens unlike any other knife made. Yes it looks standard thumb open but it takes practice in a new way foreign to all your other speed knife presentation methods. Why should you have to abandon your hard earned skills with more substantial blades to become proficient in a substandard size limited use delicate weapon.
Blade is a beefier exacto blade. Do not strike anything hard (bone, clothing snaps, zippers, buckles, watches) or it will snap leaving you holding a short plastic pen in your knife fight.
Too short of ,handle to provide leverage, and nothing to grip when it gets wet with bodily fluids.
Thirty bucks? Hey I could have bought a ....... For that. Yeah, I know.
If that's all you've got it is better than nothing.Read more ›
The only benefits to this item are: It is cheap (can find it for $20 at places). It is as easy to carry and conceal as a small pen. The small glass breaker cap at the end could be useful. It is fairly interesting just from a design viewpoint, I wish some company would implement it better.
A metal handled scalpel, an awl, a S&W tactical pen/kubotan, or the CRKT Ringer II hawkbill skinner would all be far better than this item, if you want a very small last ditch defensive item.
The blade has a very sharp point and is sharpened to a chisel tip instead of a V-tip (the blade looks like |/ in profile as opposed to most knives I've used where the blade looks like V). I mostly use it for utility work like opening boxes and cutting tape and it is perfect for this. The blade is like an X-acto knife and is also handy for cutting/trimming paper.
It takes a little practice to get a feel for opening and closing the knife, especially left-handed. I gave myself a small cut while I was getting used to it, but that's hardly the knife's fault... with something this small it's important to watch your fingertips!

Small, looks similar to an X-acto knife. Fantastic metal frame. Blade has a flat side and a sharp more dimensional side very cool and handy.Published 16 days ago by Joshua Farmer
I like this little knife much better than other vehicle escape tools. Most of those clip to the vehicle or they are stored in the glove box or under the seat. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Charles van Buren

I bought this knife in an attempt to get a non disposable X-Acto knife . I think the design leads more toward bullet or shrapnel extraction but I really wouldn't know about that . Read morePublished 7 months ago by nopainnopain
