Boker Plus

With his first project for Boker Plus, the Wasabi, Japanese knifemaker Kansei Matsuno gained many fans. The Boker Plus LRF is another one of his designs, a gentleman's knife with decidedly Japanese design inspiration. The blade of the LRF is opened with a front flipper and moves smoothly on ball bearings. The slender build is based on stainless steel liners encasing the liner lock. Thanks to the large lanyard hole and clip (tip-up/right carry), this lightweight knife is easy to carry. The VG10 blade boasts a vertical satin finish for added elegance.

About the Designer: Kansei Matsuno

The Japanese knifemaker Kansei Matsuno is a master of his craft and his designs undoubtedly have their own style. He's been making knives since 1992 and exhibited his designs for the first time at the Seki Outdoor Knife Show just one year later. The skillful combination of Japanese style elements with the features of modern pocket knives convinced Boker right away. The mostly slim and lightweight constructions, together with the straightforward designs and the classic Japanese blades make extremely elegant knives for everyday use.

VG10 Stainless Steel

The Japanese VG10 is a cobalt alloy (just like the N690) and has been used in the knife industry for many years. Spyderco in particular uses VG10 for most of their models produced in Seki, Japan. Its performance data exceed those of 440C.

Liner Lock

The liner lock is a locking mechanism mainly used for one-handed knives. Knives equipped with this mechanism are usually called liner lock knives.

The liner lock was invented in the late 19th century in the United States and patented there in 1906. This early version of the liner lock could not be opened with one hand though. The first truly one-handed liner lock knife was only developed after the patent for the original liner lock version had expired. The one-handed liner lock knife was designed by Michael Walker, a US knifemaker. In the 1980s, he introduced an improved liner lock knife first called the "Walker Linerlock".
