The Böker Plus Caracal Folder is a robust pocket knife, designed by Boris Manasherov. When you hold the Caracal you immediately notice the great ergonomics. The G10 handle is thinner in specific parts. As such your fingers fold around the handle even better. This tells you that it is not only great to look at, it is also built to be used.
The blade is made from D2 steel. A type of tool steel that is similar to stainless steel but can stain during long-term exposure to acids. The spine of the blade is nice and thin. In addition, from the thumb hole a stylish groove runs towards the tip. A set of ball bearings ensures that the blade moves smoothly.
This version of the Caracal is very special. It is namely a slipjoint which can be transformed into a fixed knife! The backspacer contains a little pin you can remove. Once opened you can place the pin in the hole above the pivot. It ensures that the blade can no longer close. After use you can simply remove the pin and put it back in the backspacer. Incredibly practical!
You can safely carry the Caracal in your pocket with the deep-carry pocket clip. It is cleverly attached to make sure you place it for left and right-handed use. Are you looking for a stylish and ergonomic pocket knife that can also handle heavy-duty tasks? If so the Böker Caracal is a great choice!

Fantastic knife, great value for money. I was expecting the pin design to be more innovative but overall great knife.
