The more compact version of the El Gigante is without a doubt still a "big" knife, and ideally suited for outdoor and hunting use. The same grippy, grooved Guayacan Ebony scales give the Esculta the same, distinctly reliable grip and outstanding handling characteristics as the El Gigante. The blade is Böhler N695 stainless steel with a stonewash finish and the guard is stainless steel too. It is supplied with a leather sheath for high or low carry.

    Just what I have been looking for...

    Posted by Stephen on 5th Jun 2017

    Really pleased with this knife.

    If you are "bushcraft" fan or someone looking for something "tactical" this is probably not for you. This is more of a traditionally styled, general purpose / utility knife.

    Build quality and sheath are top notch. Only slight gripe is that it was not particularly sharp out of the box, but this is very easily fixed.

    Not bad some shortcomings

    Posted by Practical Survivor on 9th Sep 2015

    Held back on reviewing this one until i was sure.

    Blade is sharp out of the box, easy to sharpen, very aesthetically pleasing, sheath is stellar one of the best i have ever seen and smelled!

    Cons: Fit and finish is lacking, Boker Argentina do NOT compare with Boker Germany. Liners are not flush, guard and handle scales have gaps, swedge is not symmetrically ground on both sides, edge is sharp but also poorly ground in terms of symmetry and finally this wood doesn't do well in Europeen climate, began by drying very aggressively on me ( but did not crack ) and then once it contacted water again started to rot ( Luckily i treated it in time ).

    Despite the long list of con's and mediocre mark i am pleased with it, but do know what your getting yourself into before you buy, in Europe it will be more of a show piece than a performer.

    Also Boker Argentina is clearly more hand made than Boker Germany ( heavily automatized machines).

    Heinnie is great website with exelent service 5/5

    Outstanding

    Posted by Steve@Northumberland on 13th Nov 2014

    The Esculta is beautifully made in Argentina. Blade inc. ricasso, just under 6.5". Chunky handle 5" long. Stock 6.25mm. Balance point, .25" behind the guard. All specs. approx. This Boker Arbolito Esculta arrived with the best quality leather scabbard, of any production fixed, I have ever seen. Note the stud fastener. It also has a high/low belt position. I am very happy with my purchase.
