On the surface, the Boker Plus Rocket does not look like a knife. It’s square, compact, and looks more like a thumb drive than anything else. It has just two main pieces and a pivot, but it’s truly a modern piece of pocket candy.
The Rocket features a gray 9Cr13CoMoV stainless steel sheepsfoot blade. It opens manually by using an elongated thumb groove and stays locked in place with a stainless steel linerlock. When opened or closed, this knife keeps everything straight with long flush lines creating a sleek, modern look. The back of the blade serves as the front handle scale, and the G-10 back handle scale adds a bit of extra grip.
There is no pocket clip on the Rocket, but with a wide lanyard hole, the Rocket can be carried on a key ring or latched on to other gear.
The Rocket was designed by Darriel Caston who is known for producing awesome tactical pens and the out-of-this-world UFO Click Coin EDC knife. His style really comes through in this Boker Plus.
