Boker Tucan

Usually a folding knife uses one of a few different types of deployment methods; spring, assisted, or manual. Böker’s Tucan manages to stand out from the crowd because it has been able to combine all of those methods into one seamless movement.

Designed by Wilfreid Groski, this knife uses a spring deploy system to pop the 2.8 inch long N690 steel blade up from the titanium handle while an assisted opener and nub flips it open the rest of the way. The result of this combination of opening mechanisms is a uniquely smooth and effortless action – but that isn’t all the Tucan has to offer. A kind of luxury car of the knife world, this knife is both handsome looking and powerful. The N690 steel boasts both a great hardness rating and a stellar edge retention even through regular use. The satin finish on the titanium blade handle and the carbon fiber inlayed scales dresses it up a bit, making it ideal for a more gentlemanly carry. Prices start at $267. [Purchase]
