Award winning decoy carver Len Yule has used the Boker Congress model 4-blade knife for years because of its high carbon steel blades. Len asked Boker if they could redesign the blades to meet the needs of the whittler, and Boker did just that. Solid brass liners and nickel silver bolsters. Len Yule endorses it as just what he was looking for: 4 beautiful blades, each for a different job. The closed length of the knife is 3-5/8". Made in Solingen, Germany.

I hate to say how many carving tools I own, way more than I or any other carver needs. I have a thing for well made and well thought out tools. This knife was obviously designed for the serious whittler. I have a drawer full of pocket knives but I carry this one. I have found whittling to be a very satisfying and relaxing art form that allows room for the constant improvement of skills, it is a true craft. Boker is top shelf, this one comes sharp and ready to go. Perfect for figure carving or just shaving wood.

I have owned Boker pocket knives before and lost my first one some time ago. They are of great quality and I rate them the best of all knives I have owned. I own other Boker models as well.

This knife is excellent. I do not use it for carving per se. I just use it period. I've actually bought a couple of extras in case I ever lost mine. The quality is first rate, the steel holds an edge very well and sharpens well. The fit and action when opening or closing is nice and snug. It fits my hand nicely and is comfortable to use and carry. You will not be disappointed. A lot of bang for the buck as they say. HC

Boker Whittler's Penknife
Reviewed By:   (Santa Fe, New Mexico) 
This knife looks pretty nice in the photo, and I'm glad to say that it looks even better in 3-D reality. The blades have a nice solid mechanism, and the wood is real and rich. I've been whittling for a short-time now, and while I'm hardly an expert, I do know enough to be able to appreciate a good blade. The blades on the Boker will not disappoint. The big blade has plenty of heft for removing large amounts of material. But the knife really shines when you use the smaller blades The small rounded blade, in particular, has a remarkably subtle action. I found I was able to shave off finer slivers of wood with this knife than any other I've used. Working on fairly hard wood, the action was so effective that it was as if I was whittling soap. And this is before I even added my own sharpening to the blades. My only complaint about the knife is that the blades do not lock. The big blade has a slight tendency to move when you're working it. Of course, it's possible that this will stop happening as I gain more experience. But still blade locks would preclude the problem and do nothing to impair the knife. Overall, though, I am quite happy with the appearance, workmanship and performance of this penknife.
