As a combination of a modern EDC and a high-quality gentleman's knife, the Boker Plus Cataclyst also convinces in the Damascus variant with 110 layers all along the line. The sturdy blade opens on ball bearings via a flipper and has a flat grind and a groove on both sides. It is held open by the sophisticated flip-joint mechanism and does not lock, but is merely held securely in position by a detent ball. With appropriate pressure on the back of the blade, the blade can be folded without releasing a locking device.
To ensure that no doubts arise when carrying the Cataclyst Brown Damascus Flipjoint, we have explicitly had a declaratory ruling drawn up for the legal weapons classification of a knife with a ball retention of the blade. The BKA (declaratory ruling Z-524) shares our opinion that the blade holder with the aid of the detent ball does not constitute a locking device within the meaning of the Weapons Act: "The ball holder of the blade installed here, which is already released by light finger pressure on the back of the blade, does not fulfil the criteria of a manual locking device".
Jimpings in the area of the thumb rest and on the backspacer further increase work safety. The straight-lined design features front handle scales made of three-dimensionally milled Micarta, which is finished in a light brown. The right-hand grip and the deep-carry clip (tip-up/r), which is also three-dimensionally milled from solid material, have a satin finish. Supplied with a lanyard hole and high-quality nylon pouch for storage.
