Boker Plus JB Stout Leviathan Flipper Knife 3.5" D2 Stonewashed Blade, Stainless Steel Handles - 01BO752
BO01BO752: JB Stout Leviathan - Stainless Steel
The expressive designs by Jason B. Stout are always an excellent choice when it comes to rugged utility knives. The Boker Plus Leviathan is somewhat more compact than Stout's Lateralus but offers no less versatility and practical value. The Leviathan is equipped at the same high level with a stainless steel frame lock and a D2 steel blade on ball bearings. The front scale and back handle are made from stainless steel with optimum weight. Includes solid milled pocket clip (tip-up/right carry).
About the Designer: Jason B. Stout

D2 Tool Steel
With a chromium content of 12%, D2 – a tool steel – can certainly be classified as a stainless steel. Since its chromium content is right on the threshold, however, a little more care for the D2 wouldn't go amiss. As an upper-tier conventional steel, D2 offers great edge retention and stability, though sharpening it takes a little effort.
