For 2018, Boker will be offering this tanto blade variant in their popular Urban Trapper model. The compound grind is a bit of a departure for the gentlemanly Urban Trapper, but it’s not that different from some of designer Brad Zinker’s more adventurous customs.

For many, this will be the Kwaiken they’ve been waiting for. The Boker Kwaiken auto takes Lucas Burnley’s smash-hit design and puts it in the hands of automatic experts at ProTech who are making the knives. The elimination of any liners, flippers, or lock cutouts make for a stark, sleek look, and help bring the 3.5 inch 154CM blade down to an overall weight of just 3.4 ounces.

Böker, the German cutlery giant is our next stop! They serve such an international market that their release schedule isn’t usually built around SHOT Show, but we’re still expecting a few new knives, including a rumored Lucas Burnley Kwaiken auto.

The small Intrigue may be scaled down, but it still gets the Steel Will treatment: this premium version will come with full carbon fiber scales and M390 blade steel, while the budget model will have uniquely-patterned FRN and D2 steel.

Like the Cutjack, the new Steel Will Intrigue is divided into premium and budget models. This budget model features FRN scales and D2 steel. While the premium version will be made in G-10 and M390 blade steel. This larger size has a generous blade length of 3.6-inches.

The new Steel Will Resident will be available in two flavors. This is the carbon fiber and titanium framelock, and another with a linerlock nested into aluminum scales is also an option. Both will share the exact same 3.6-inch D2 steel blade.

Steel Will offers a healthy balance of budget and premium knives. We’re excited to see what they’ve brought this year!
