I've had a SanRemu branded one for some time. Quite pocket friendly and the blade is very nice indeed. The scissor is less impressive. Edit: The handle on the Böker seems more rounded from the picture. Should be even more pocket friendly then.
They bob a lot compared to its bigger brother...https://youtu.be/cYEoroBE_9w
I had what was basically the same from Ruike. Horrible scissors on these, but the rest of the tool was great. The scales are awesome too. I know CountyComm had an exclusive that was just the blade and strap cutter; but does Boker have their own like that?
What's the issue with the scissors? Fixable?
If I remember correctly, (as I can't find the thing around here now), it is just not tight and or sharp enough. Sometimes things will slip or be forced between the blades instead of cutting. A knock on the fulcrum might help, but then again it might not - scissors are surprisingly difficult to get right. Which might explain why there are so many so so ones. Based on the quality of the rest of the tool I like to think they have both the will and ability to improve on it going forwards. For all I know they might have done so already.
Thanks Vidar, it sounds like a few slaps with a hammer would fix things up a bit
I just came across this one yesterday and was thinking about getting one to possibly replace my SAK Rambler, but with all the negative comments, on here and that I’ve read other places, about the scissors; i think I might stick to the Rambler,
Ok I don't have time to do this right, so I will state my thoughts and then send the tool to someone else...The Blade: This is a great blade, IMHO greatest of all in that size (Classic, Micra, Squirt, Dime...). But the biggest limitation is that size and for all reasonable tasks the blade of a Classic (and the others) will do just fine.The Scissors: They work, they are good to have, but no reason to choose this tool over a ClassicThe Combo tool: Certainly sturdy, but it is large. At the end of the day, I prefer the Vic 58mm combo tool because it has a PH head. I do not really see any use for the "rescue hook". What it certainly does is give you a better pry tool than what you would find on the 58mm line.The overall feel: This is what I liked much about the regular Tech Tools, those scales are nice. However with the Mini tech tool, they add a lot of bulk, and I don't think it's word the trade.It is too big to be small: Compared to the Classic (or an Alox-Rambler) it is a lot larger without adding function.It's too small to be big: Volume and weight wise it is in the league of a Cadet, which thanks to its longer frame is IMO superior.Personally, I would not buy again, but if you are looking for a key-chain tool that can second as a tiny bush-craft knife, then this might be for you.
How thick is the Mini Tech tool in comparison to a Cadet or say a 3 layer celidor SAK?I have had my eye on them for awhile but I dislike the bulk of the 3+ layer SAKs in my pocket so I usually stick to a Compact.-Wes.
Just checked and it's almost exactly the same thickness as a two layer cellidor SAK.
Anybody ever try the Ruike versions of the Tech Tools?Their minis have been out for at least two years;https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071ZHJLLC/?coliid=I2YLUDZTWTHGG9&colid=3HP8X11Q2KTTB&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it
I've not seen them myself but I'd be surprised if they didn't come out of exactly the same factory gates. Happy to hear from anyone who know better though.
A year and a bit later and the Boker Mini still makes a regular appearance in my pocket. Great MT and not very expensive either. (Image removed from quote.)
