Boker’s Bullfrog is a bead blasted 2″ plain-edge, drop point, lock-blade knife. The manufacturer’s specs say 440 stainless steel, which probably means 440A, which is not a fantastic steel, one generally considered barely good enough for the Bullfrog’s proclaimed design intention as an “every day knife.” It’s higher carbon content means an increased hardenability – tough, very resistant to corrosion blade, with decent wear resistance and edge holding. Not the worst steel out there, but definitely not the best.
The Bullfrog’s handle is micarta. I’ve never been able to understand exactly what micarta is – originally created as an industrial laminate, it is somehow made with canvas or paper – but I have enough experience to say it’s light, strong, and not quite plastic. The handle has an attractive look to it, dark with a unique pattern of shading, and is durable enough to hold up against everyday use. A thumb stud allows for quick and easy one-handed opening. The Bullfrog’s overall weight is 3.1 ounces; overall length is 5″.
This is a small, modest quality knife that would be fine to carry for everyday use. It’s not super pricey, a plus for an every day knife which may be misplaced from time to time.
