Boker Plus Wasabi G10

The Japanese knifemaker Kansei Matsuno is a true master of his trade and his designs certainly showcase a unique style. This Boker Plus Wasabi G10 is no exception.


The skilful combination of Japanese style elements and features of a modern gentleman's pocketknife make for a top notch folder. The slender build and lightweight construction of the Boker Plus Wasabi complement the straightforward design and classic Japanese blade to make an elegant everyday knife.


The blade with ball bearings opens with one hand and is kept open as a slipjoint with a detent ball. It is non-locking with a blade measuring under three inches and is therefore UK friendly carry. It is made of reliable 440C steel.


The handle features stainless liners and a milled clip, with scales of tough and lightweight G10.

    Another Boker Triumph

    Posted by Seamus on 11th Sep 2020

    A stunning UK legal knife that's perfect for carrying every day. Slim, beautifully engineered, and a great design. I'm loving it!

    Really nice knife

    Posted by Jonathan on 23rd Jun 2020

    Superb knife feels really well made. Lovely action and after a quick strop is extremely sharp. Quite discrete looking until you start flicking it open! Would have liked a deep clip and/or tip up carry but that's a minor point really. Can't go wrong for this sort of money.

    Great value

    Posted by Antonis on 13th Jun 2020

    This knife has been well described by other reviewers so I won't reiterate the same good points. It's very much a light use knife, with a thin spine, and not much positive detent. This means it's not as confidence inspiring as a bigger knife on hard cutting like card board, but is amazing as a paring knife. I'd happily carry this to work for the occasional small box and to peel fruit.

    Don't bother with CF variant, the G10 scales are textured and lovely, so unless you're into the aesthetic of cocobolo the cheap G10 will do perfectly and has yet best grip.

    Very classy slicer

    Posted by Pete M on 21st May 2020

    Beautiful little front-flipping folder from Kansei. The non-locking double-detent action is nice and smooth, as you'd expect since this knife runs on bearings. One-handed opening takes a bit of practice, has immense "fidget factor", but user discretion definitely advised.

    Build quality on mine is excellent, especially for this price point. Blade arrived decently sharp and very well-centred. Full-flat grind is nice and thin behind the edge, making this a fantastic slicer. Handle shape is nice and neutral - this knife actually sits very nicely in "dinner grip".

    The heel of the blade does run close to the edge of the knife - if you jammed a fingertip into the 3mm gap between the spacers, maybe you'd catch a nick, but I've yet to manage that. The detent is light compared to a more traditional backspring-powered action, but then that's what the extended tang is for. The lanyard hole seems superfluous to me, but it looks pretty, and if you're determined to carry tip-up, that is the option.

    Overall it's a great purchase: if you want one-handed opening built on near-traditional lines, this is probably the model for you.

    Awesome little knife

    Posted by Riz on 14th Feb 2020

    I wholeheartedly agree with the reviews that enjoy this little knife.
    I liked the look of it from web and youtube reviews, but was a little put off by the 'closed cut yourself' review on here.
    My advice is to buy it. It's smaller than it looks and will not cut you when closed unless you have child sized fingers. With my Essex-dad sized hands it's fine. The blade is probably a mm or 2 away from the edge of the frame try as I might to cut myself with it closed I was not able to.
    It's small enough and light enough to disappear in a pocket, and perfect for what I want it for, slicing apples for my kids or doing arts and crafts, with the possibility of taking it as a spare in the field to dress out small game.
    I had bought a CRKT ripple by Ken Onion for this and though similarly small, the lock on the CRKT and stiff flipper make it less wieldy or legal in the event of wandering about with it in my pocket. Overall, very well made, and very fidget-able.
    I'm going to order the cocobolo and carbon versions as soon as they are back in stock.

    Beautiful

    Posted by Jonathan on 12th Oct 2019

    What a beautiful, beautiful knife.

    It really doesn't have to do anything else for me, but the design is also closely matched by the quality of the build and so I can spend ages playing with it, opening/closing and admiring from every angle.

    However, as others have said, it's not a knife for heavy duty work, and furthermore there's something about the shape of it which makes me want to hold it sideways when using it, which means I'm NOT holding the (very sharp) blade locked out...

    As a do-it-all EDC knife, I'd only score it a 2 or 3, but as dress knife and lovely thing to own and appreciate, it's 5 stars all the way. Not quite a shelf queen, but maybe a pocket queen?!

    Can't say enough positive things ...

    Posted by Conor on 10th Oct 2018

    This is absolutely my favourite knife at the moment. Purely for aesthetics and usability.

    It's definitely not made for heavy work, but just as a light "gentleman's folder" that is razor sharp out of the box it doesn't get better.

    To the point where I'm debating buying both the olive wood and carbon fibre just to have them all (and in case tragedy befalls my G10).

    It could look a bit aggressive to a non-knife-person. However, it's such a beautiful a elegant knife, I really don't care.

    reminds me of a gentlemans razor

    Posted by ricado on 1st Sep 2018

    opens well thin sharp almost to shave with blade, and i think non threatening in proportion. Brilliant for tomatoes, and actually all fruit, even tackled a small melon with ease. Delicate, you won't be splitting logs for kindling, but really smart for all food preparation, packets, boxes and all the usual business an edc is required for in a beautiful design with real fiddle factor, lovely click open shut. You won't stop until you cut yourself. I went with the g10 for the added stiffness but i'm actually considering the wood for an even friendlier disposition given that some fools have spoilt it for all.

    Not for edc

    Posted by Rachael on 4th Jun 2018

    I completely agree with the previous review it's a lovely knife cannot find any flaws with it, but in today's knife climate in the uk I don't feel comfortable carrying it outside the house even though it's uk friendly instaed I use my little bean fli*per ,, but it will be my primary go to knife about the house and once you've got the hang of opening it with one hand it does have that fiddle factor
