George has crafted quite a resume for himself over the years, both in the custom and production halves of the field. He’s known for a rough and tumble aesthetic informed by the needs of users, not collectors: a Les George design, no matter how dressed up, speaks directly to its role as a tool, one that may need to be counted on in extreme or unexpected circumstances. Naturally, all of this comes through on today’s knife as well, which we’ll call the Collection 2024 for short.
For the true steel heads out there the main draw will be another Boker blade incarnated in CPM MagnaCut, the miracle metal from Larrin Thomas that uses powder metallurgy to elevate the concept of an all-arounder steel to a new level. It dovetails quite nicely with the 3.66-inch drop point George drew up for the Collection 2024; that’s a shape that’s up for nearly anything you can throw at it, including, at that length, bigger cutting chores – assuming you can bring yourself to use this limited edition piece in such a way.
I know this is a few days old, but Les is a buddy, and the knife would look good in my pocket.
