Boker Plus Hyper Folding Knife Review

Designed by Chad Los Banos and manufactured by Boker, the Hyper streamlines one of Los Banos's earlier knives -- the Subcom. Built thinner but just as solid, this 3.2-ounce, one-handed opening knife slips neatly into the pocket with a barely noticeable profile.

Dual thumb studs allow opening from either side of the blade, and the wide stainless steel pocket clip reverses for tip-up or tip-down carrying. The Boker Hyper's tactical black coating eliminates the shine of the AUS-8 high carbon stainless steel blade and all other visible metal parts. The Hyper has a very stout blade which has a very slight recurve. The swedge is (of course) not sharpened and serves to lighten the look of the blade. It hopefully goes without saying that it was hair shaving sharp out of the box. An internal frame lock holds the blade securely in the open position and releases easily.

Boker Plus Hyper extends to a full length of 6-5/8 inches with a wide handle and a comfortable grip of fiber-reinforced dark nylon. Textured handle slabs provide a non-slip surface enhanced by grip-zone notches and shallow finger choils. There's considerable strength in the wide blade of the Hyper and an improved cutting design. Length of cutting edge is actually slightly longer than the 2-3/4-inch blade because of the slight recurve at the base. That shallow concave section focuses cutting pressure near the handle where the leverage advantage is greatest. When cutting heavy material like rope or seat belt webbing, the material sinks deeper against the cutting edge as it moves forward on the blade. Even with a plain edge, the knife grips as it cuts.

Even the Hyper's stainless steel pocket clip seems better than average, wider than the standard clip and strong enough to actually keep the knife in place. Conservative in size, the Boker Hyper Knife packs a lot of quality into a small package. In summary, this knife is an absolute bargain for a titanium coated, G-10 scaled small frame lock folder. It is well designed, well built, easy to carry and discreet.
