The Boker Plus Rockhopper is a little knife with a ton of utility. Designed by Michael Reinhold, of the Spyderco Rhino fame, this pocketknife punches way outside its weight class. You can pick this budget friendly folder for about $45.
The Rockhopper has a 1.57” D2 leaf shaped blade with full flat grind and a blade thickness of 0.13”. It’s not going to chop down a tree any time soon, but it’s just about perfect for any ordinary daily task. The thumbstud action on this knife is surprisingly snappy.
It’s a linerlock with lightly textured, black G-10 handles on stainless-steel liners. There’s enough room for a solid two-finger grip. The included paracord lanyard expands that grip out to at least a full three- to four-finger grip. The lock is easily indexed, and the lockup is solid. It has a right carry, tip-up pocket clip that is removable but not reversible. At 2.25” closed, and weighing a mere 2.15 ounces, this knife practically disappears in your pocket.
