BO01BO608: Boker Plus Subcom Desert and Green G10 KnifeCenter Exclusive
Boker Plus
 
The Subcom Folder from Chad Los Banos was one of the keystones of the Boker Plus lineup, and quickly became one of the most popular designs from Boker. The Subcom folding knife has a municipal-friendly blade, at 1.875" long and 0.8" thick. The blade is black coated 440C stainless steel and boasts an ambidextrous thumb stud. The reversible pocket clip and compact size of this frame lock knife make for an ideal money clip. Both thumb and palm index ramps provide for a secure grip. This model is exclusive to the KnifeCenter and features an upgraded desert and green G10 handle.

Poorly Designed Junk
I thought that this would a nice EDC alternative to my Spyderco Meerkat. Boy -- was I wrong! Got it today and find that opening it is OK, but closing the blade is an exercise in futility. To start with, at the widest point the release tab is only 1.2mm. And then it tapers down to nothing in another 10 mm with that last nub of surface area being only 0.5mm. So you can only use a little corner of your thumb nail and must make a pretty hefty press to unlock the blade. I can't imagine having to use this knife in cold, wet conditions. But there are some possible remedies: 1. Twist with a flat blade screwdriver. The one in a Swiss Army knife works great, though the logic of carrying a second knife to close your first knife might be a little shaky. 2. Grind into the finger groove to deepen it and give you access to more of the release tab. You probably need to take the entire knife apart, though they do give you a little torx wrench that will help. (Can't say for sure about the quality of the tool, but it doesn't appear to be inferior to the little wrenches you get with IKEA furniture.) 3. Grind down the metal on the release tab to make it thinner. Just be careful not to take away metal from the face of the tab that mates with the back of the blade. For aesthetics you should do this in the inside of the shell, which means you'll need to take the knife apart. Warning! Don't try to pry up the release tab. It will turn the knife into a non-locking knife and the metal they used on the rear scale is pretty soft. On-line shopping is a good thing for Boker because some folks just won't bother with the return. But if they had to rely on in-person sales for this knife, Boker would be out of luck.
