The Boker Lateralus Pocketknife: The Full Nick Shabazz Review

Today, we’re going to talk a bit about the Boker Lateralus, a knife that’s objectively a bit behind the curve, but on the strength of a beautiful and ergonomic design, still pretty compelling.

Also, sorry if I was a bit off. Never film tired!

For those of you wondering, this video (and a few of the upcoming ones!) are from the backlog, even pre-wedding! So don't worry, I'm not divorced and my size comparison choices haven't shifted again!

It is "concave" chamfer.
Regarding the choil, (which is actually the technical term for the end of the blade-grind, regardless of the presence/absence of a notch) it has been referred to as an "elf choil" by folk sin the Busse-community to describe under-sized "finger" choils on knife models such as the Swamp Rat HRLM from years back.

Thanks for the video.

Another great review Nick…love the secondary comparisons and like that if it a regular thing. But my heart
is crying out for a Gem…it’s been a few days. I realize you are likely busy testing headphones…or what the Russians did to our Diplomats in Cuba, or whatever the hell it is you do for a living, but I’m looking forward to your next review regardless. Great work.

I'll take the Rat any day. I've carried a R2D2 for over 2 years. One of the best budget workers ever.

I have to pay closer attention to your reviews. The “My anaconda don’t want none train of thought” line, now that is a gem. Keep up the great work!

What a day my favorite knife reviewer mentions my favorite band that has an album coming out in a month

Actually Nick, when this one popped up on screen, I thought the design was derivative of Strider…..?

I like the large finger choil on that blade and the flipper tab comes out to contour your forefinger nicely. And the fuller on the top looks like it can possibly be used as a nail knick opener for those who want to open it that way.

I do wish that the handle had more character to it. I don't think the thin horizontal lines do much for grip or ergonomics and seems bland to me. I almost wish it was just a plain handle scale.
