The business end of the Boker Aurora is built from American 154CM stainless steel and given an aggressively tumbled finish. Just a touch over three inches of cutting edge would work for anything from practical every day cutting to skinning small game. A high flat grind provides seamless cutting that won’t get caught up in whatever you’re working on. A real nice ambidextrous thumb hole window for opening the blade that glides along like glass on brass washers surrounding the pivot. Each blade is individually numbered on the back.
The handle on the Boker Aurora is constructed from two thick slabs of titanium with a two-tone anodized in a bronze/dark purple fashion for an attractive appeal. The front is machined in a sunburst pattern that not only looks outstanding, but provides grip texturing as well. The reverse slab is smooth to the touch and has a frame lock mechanism for confident lock up. Open titanium barrel spacers construction on the Aurora with titanium hardware. The pocket clip orientation is tip down, right hand carry only.
All in all I really enjoy EDCing this knife despite it being tip down carry. This thing is a beast, the fit and finish is amazing, definitely a nice show piece, but ready for hard use. I’d recommend this blade to anyone looking for an exceptional high quality folder.
