New from Boker Plus, meet the ultra-cool Nano: it’s bright, versatile, and it wants to be your new best friend! Its small size is perfect for EDC duties at 4-3/4″ overall, and its stout 1-7/8″ 440C stainless steel blade can slice through pretty much anything you throw at it-plus it takes a very sharp edge. Bright lime-green Zytel scales make it hard to forget if you set it down, and it fits comfortably in all but the largest hands.
The Nano sports an easy-to-use frame lock, and jimping on the spine just adds to its grip and versatility. It may be small, but it’ll be a loyal companion for years. Check them out today at www.knifecenter.com!
Here’s the word from Boker Plus:
The Böker Plus Nano is breaking new grounds with David Curtiss’ remarkable design. The Nano clearly shows that size and utility value do not have to be in direct correlation to each other. Thanks to its ingenious ergonomics, the Nano perfectly rests in your hand despite the limited size and it handles a variety of smaller and larger cutting tasks with ease and simultaneously provides an excellent level of grip. The structure of the Zytel scale enhances the slip resistance. The bellied blade is made of 440C stainless steel and ensures comfortable handling due to the large opening. A special bonus is the pocket clip. Includes steel handle with frame lock device and front Zytel scale. Includes removable pocket clip (tip-up/tip-down carry).
The Nano is an extremely high quality little folder that feels much larger in the hand. The texturing on the Zytel scales provide adequate grip and the framelock is solid and quite easy to disengage. You can get a full three finger grip on this knife and the jimping on the spine, though not sharp, is very functional. A nice stout little knife, the stonewashed blade and contrasting brushed finish is a beautiful touch at the price point.
