Description: Boris Manasherov's outstanding feel for the ergonomics and handling of a knife really shows in his design of the Boker Wildcat. Boris Manasherov is an engineer by education and profession and he has always been deeply passionate about knives and martial arts. Having started training in the Israeli martial art of Krav MagÓ in 1973, in 1985 he became an instructor of Israeli special forces. This is where Boris learned the importance of intuitive knife handling.
The blade of the Boker Plus Wildcat Karambit Flipper (01BO772) is made from D2 semi stainless steel with a satin finish. The upswept blade features a compound grind and can either be opened softly using the thumb hole or quickly with the ambidextrous flipper. The flipper opening is tremendously easy to use for quick deployment. When combined with the ball bearing pivot, the action is exceptional! The long swedge increases penetration power while the recurved edge improves cutting performance.
The ergonomic handle has been machined to be comfortable regardless of grip style. Rough textured G10 handle scales are set on skeletonized stainless liners keeping the knife incredible light! The stainless steel partial backbar moves into the classic karambit ring offering a secure grip in a self-defense situation. The reversible stainless steel pocket clip can be mounted for left or right-handed, tip-up carry and leaves the ring accessible above the pocket for a quick draw.
