Has anyone heard of the x-blade by Sig. I hear it is only sold overseas? Around $180.00.

Thanks, RC, but noticed that the Boker doesn't have the glass breaker on the heel of the knife.

I don't know what to tell you.

But you can get a Kershaw Blur Assisted Opener with a glass breaker for less than half that price.

And heres a Benchmade Axis-Lock if you want a really good knife.

Then there is the CRKT M16 with a glass breaker & a seat belt cutter.

Just so you know, I have known a few guys who bought knives with glass breakers and then ground them off because they got tired of ripping skin off every time they put thier hand in thier pocket.

Not exactly. Both knives were designed by Dietmar Pohl, but the SIG X-Blade isn't made by Böker.
I am not sure if the X-Blade is even made in Germany, and I find it highly suspicious that descriptions of the SIG knife don't mention blade steel.

Well, I always thought buying firearms manufactures branded knives was kinda like a Box of Chocolates anyway!

You never know what you are gonna get.

But it isn't usually the one you were hoping for.

You are right, but I can sympathize with the OP...

Usually, I have to come up with some sort of "practical" excuse to buy a knife, but when I saw that there was a Colt Python knife, it took me a lot of effort to resist buying that knife just because it had a Colt logo and the name "Python" on it ;)
