U.S. outdoor and kayak specialist, Abe Elias, designed the Boker Plus Ck1 Rescue Knife based on specific experiences. The Boker Plus Ck-1 Tactical Rescue Knife is an essential tool in every situation in which quick aid for yourself or others can be a matter of survival. Bright yellow handle scales (detachable), made of Zytel, make the knife visible in any situation and provide a firm and secure grip, even with wet hands or gloves. The straight cutting edge prevents the material being cut from slipping off the edge, maximizing the effectiveness. Partial serrations behind the tip make it easy to cut belt or webbing without working the whole blade close to the body, and the sheepfoot design with the round tip prevents injury. The blade is 440C stainless, titanium coated. The Boker Plus Ck-1 Fixed Blade Rescue Knife includes a Kydex sheath.
