Boker Plus Kaizen Black D2 Green Canvas Micarta Liner Lock Flipper 01BO391
The Japanese term "Kaizen" consists of the syllables Kai (change, transformation) and Zen (for the better) describing a continuous striving for improvement. The Boker Plus Kaizen takes these principles and attempts to make them material in this slim and modestly aesthetic design that resembles the classic higonokami. A minimalist flipper deploys the D2 tool steel blade with speed on the bearing pivot for fast access. Bronzed decorative pivot screw and lanyard hole pommel frame green canvas Micarta handle scales describe the changing boundaries of form and function.
Brand new, direct from Boker Knives.
Blade: A long, slim blade of black coated D2 tool steel provides a utilitarian cutting tool with plenty of style. The minimalist flipper deploys the blade with flawless speed thanks to a ball bearing pivot, while a high saber grind and long swedge deliver solid performance to handle daily cutting tasks.
Handle: Bronze coated stainless steel decorative pivot, lanyard hole pommel and skeletonized liners complement the rugged green canvas Micarta scales in this slim, minimalist design. Offering a solid grip in the hand, the knife comes equipped with a liner lock mechanism for smooth operation and secure lockup.
Carries via a right-hand stainless-steel deep carry clip.
D2 Tool Steel: Used as a die cutting steel since WW II, D2 offers a good combination of hardness and wear resistance with moderate toughness and stain resistance. High chromium content for a tool steel (10-13%) gives D2 better corrosion resistance than most high carbon steels.
