Kansei Matsuno is known for his very slender and lightweight designs, where he combines Japanese style elements with modern construction and materials. With the Boker Plus Takara, the custom knifemaker presents a much more solid gentleman folder that still features the same elegant lines. The size of the slightly curved knife is the perfect blend of pocket size and versatility. The D2 blade has a fine lengthwise satinized finish with decorative filework on the spine that also serves as a thumb rest. It rests on ball bearings and opens with the front flipper that is typical for the Japanese knifemaker's designs. The blade is secured with a sturdy linerlock. The slightly contoured handle scales are made from textured G10 mounted on solid stainless liners. The full-length spacer also consists of stainless steel, creating an elegant contrast to the dark scales. A black leather lanyard and 3D CNC-milled clip complete the design.
