The Boker Kihon designed by Lucas Burnley has been adapted as a manual folder and as an automatic, and now meets in the middle with a spring assisted model. "Kihon" refers to the basics of Japanese martial arts, and the Boker Kihon gets right down to basics of what a knife is supposed to be: a cutting tool. Lots of knives focus on a trademark design, a specific material, a fancy locking mechanism, or some other trait that isn't the purpose of a knife. The Kihon is a cutting tool, plain and simple. It has effective materials that are good enough to get the job done, but not so fancy you'll baby the knife. It has an attractive design, but it's not too niche to carry anywhere, from the campsite to the board room. It uses the time-proven frame lock, a spring assisted action, and both thumb studs and a flipper tab, making the operation of the knife easy and intuitive.
Officially founded in 1869, Boker is still a trendsetter and innovator after 150 years in business. With family in German cutlery dating back to the 1600s, Boker was primed to take the US pocket knife market by storm. Take a look at our extensive Boker Knives collection today!
