The Nopal knife is a new additon to the Boker knives Plus Elegance line. Designed by Newton Martin, a young knifemaker from Texas, the Nopal got its name from the Texan word for the cactus plant, whose leaves replicate the shape of the closed knife. The handle features textured G-10 scales over a steel liner lock frame. The finger grooves work great in conjunction with the notches on the blade and handle spine to create a superb grip. The 440C stainless steel Wharncliffe blade has a chisel grind for strength and sharpness. The straight cutting edge allows extremely precise cuts and perfect tip control. The removable tip-up pocket clip is satin finished.
