Description: The Boker Kwaiken is the end result of collaborating with New Mexico custom maker Lucas Burnley. Burnley, whose most popular knife is a fixed blade Kwaiken, wanted to transfer the thin and narrow concept into a folding knife, without changing the proportions too much. The result is a knife that is slim and easy to carry with zero compromise in ergonomics.
The blade is made from AUS-8 stainless steel and features a stonewash finish which helps hide any scratches you may put on the knife during use. The knife is easy to deploy using the ambidextrous thumb disc thanks to the IKBS ball bearings. The Ikoma Korth Bearing System (IKBS) was originally designed to fit balisong knives and uses ball bearings to create exceptional action with no blade play.
The ergonomic handle features green micarta scales which provide plenty of slip-resistant grip. The frame, backspacer, thumb disc, and pocket clip are all stonewashed to match the blade. The rear of the handle has been tapped in case a lanyard attachment is desired. The pocket clip is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
Made in Taiwan.
