As a self-confessed fan of the Filipino Martial Arts, it made sense for the Italian knife designer Alessandra De Santis from Hydra Design to design a Karambit knife for Boker Plus. The sickle-like knives have their origin in Southeast Asia and were preferably used for rice harvesting. The Boker Plus HEL Karambit, on the other hand, presents itself in a tactical guise.
The black-coated Hawkbill blade made of 154CM works its way effortlessly through cardboard and ropes, while the G10 handle and the robust linerlock provide the necessary on-the-job safety. The light weight and high efficiency form the backbone of the pocket-knife named after the Norse goddess of the underworld.
As an alternative to the silky-smooth flipper opening, the pocket-knife offers a screw-off thumb stud on the back of the blade, the shape of which also serves as a wave-opener. The characteristic angular design elements of Alessandra De Santis can be found in the striking G10 ring at the end of the handle. The convertible wire clip (tip-up) allows the knife to be carried flexibly. Supplied with a high-quality nylon pouch.
