Nano Utility Framelock

Böker Plus - David Curtiss Design


From the KnifeCenter website:


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 adjustable pocket clip. Knife includes steel handle with frame lock device and front Zytel scale.


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.


The clips featuring the crosshairs in the design are the symbol of Curtiss custom designs and were made by the designer David Curtiss himself. They were then shipped to the Böker factory to attach to the knives for a truly custom element to the design.
