Boker "Tree Brand" Knives

I've been looking for a general purpose hunting knife, like the looks of the Buck Vanguards but found the Boker on ebay.
Anyone have any experience with these?

good stuff...fairly priced

Boker has been around for like...forever....they make really nice yet mostly inexpensive pieces...when you visit Europe..you'll find that most everyone there who carries a knife carries a Boker or Hubertus....you will be perfectly satisfied with the Boker.
