When Kansei Matsuno designed the Boker Plus Nori Cocobolo, it was clear he wanted an elegant gentleman’s knife. It’s the perfect combination of the popular Wasabi and LRF. This slim, sleek folder has Cocobolo handles and VG-10 blades with the Wasabi’s front flipper and the LRF’s sturdy linerlock.
The Boker Plus Nori features a 3.125″ VG-10 blade with a satin finish. It’s a double front flipper opener that locks into place with a linerlock. Unlike most front flippers which are hard to manipulate, the Nori flicks open fast and easy. It actually looks more like a two-pronged fork than a single front flipper. The slim blade is just .o8″ thick and perfect for slicing.
The handles are a rich Cocobolo wood over steel liners. The tip-up pocket clip is removable but not reversible, and a lanyard tube houses a braided leather lanyard. The Nori is 3.875″ closed, 7″ overall, and weighs just 1.62oz, which makes it perfect for slacks.
