The Japanese Knife Maker Kansei Matsuno is a true master of his trade and his designs certainly show a unique style. From the beginning, we loved the skillful combination of Japanese style elements and features of a modern gentleman's pocketknife. The slender build and lightweight construction of the Boker Plus Wasabi complement the straightforward design and classic Japanese blade to make an elegant everyday knife. The blade with ball bearings opens with a front flipper and is kept open as a slipjoint with a detent ball. The blade is made of reliable 440C. Handle with stainless liners and milled clip. Scales of lightweight carbon fiber.
