Serialized Limited Run & D2 Blade
Only 1.55 Ounces
A True Elegant Gentleman's Folder
The popular Boker Kaizen convinces in this version supplied with slightly contoured handle scales made of olive green canvas Micarta while the blade and the clip are coated black. The bronze-coloured lanyard hole and the ring around the blade axle screw set additional visual accents. The resulting colour contrast is reminiscent of the hardships of exploratory expeditions long ago. The Japanese term kaizen is made up of the syllables kai (change) and zen (for the better) and describes the continual striving for improvement. Perfection becomes a temporary phenomenon and is merely an intermediate goal in the constant process of change. As an elegant gentleman's knife, the Boker Plus Kaizen captures the spirit of the times and convinces with clever detailed solutions. Modesty as a sign of true greatness is perfectly embodied by the minimalist Flipper, which visually almost merges with the slender knife and is nevertheless highly functional thanks to the jimpings. The ball-bearing D2 blade works its way through everyday cutting tasks with stoic calm and always finds its way back to its centre with the help of the reliable liner lock. The decorative blade axle screw is the visual starting point of the Gentleman's Folder as a symbol of change in form and function and leads into the straight lanyard hole at the end of the handle. The textured Micarta handle lies comfortably in the hand and is supplied with a practical deep-carry clip (tip-up/r) and a high-quality nylon pouch for storage.
Great steel takes a fine edge. Flipper requires a good deal of pressure to open the blade. Classy, has about the same footprint in my jeans watch pocket as my countycomm AAA light, both fit nicely together
Like other reviews, the blade is thin but I expected that. It opens with a flick of the finger. The blade is very sharp. It's a cool looking unique knife for the connection!
The flipper is way too small. The ad video made it seem easy to open. It’s not. I realize the design was to be compact and easy to carry which it is. Long as you have strong fingers and tuff nails ! Overall I still liked the knife but would not by it again…
It's super light, compact and snag free when I put it in my pocket for my EDC. The blade is super sharp out of the case and is my go to for a my every day outings. The nub that flicks the blade out is a little small but its part of slim design so no big deal.
This knife is incredibly well made. It is light, the folding action is smooth, it's small, and the D2 blade is insanely sharp. If you like nice pocket knives, I highly recommend this one!
