The design specification for the Boker Folding Knife - Patriot Satin is lightweight yet durable everyday carry knife with the best possible mix of versatility and practicality, while being exclusively based on premium materials. As a result, we selected the American-made 154CM as the blade steel, which has been a fixture in the steel tables for many years with its outstanding edge-holding characteristics. The black handle is made from fiberglass-reinforced plastic, which boasts a maximum of strength at a minimum of weight, while its textured surface also offers a solid grip even with wet or cold hands. The slightly tapered handle line and deep finger grooves ensure ideal ergonomics, while the reversible clip (l/r) together with the ambidextrous backlock provides unrestricted left-handed operation. The slim handle is assembled with screws and features a generously sized lanyard hole.
