How could such a small and stout folder like the Boker Plus Subcom be the latest Badass Knife of the Week? Just ask the countless people who carry this versatile brute in their pocket.

The Subcom is a foundational piece in the Boker Plus series and remarkably became one of Boker’s best-selling knives of all time. That’s high praise coming from such an old and storied brand.

The Boker Plus Subcom Titan VG-10 is a premium and smartly refined version of the original with flourishes that take this rotund folder to another level.

This version of the Subcom uses a smaller, more understated thumb stud to engage.

Unlike the fiberglass-reinforced handle of the original, the Subcom Titan features a grip that’s precision-machined on a CNC mill from titanium. Extra flourishes like bead-blasted edges and a lengthwise satin finish along the surface make the handle stand out.

The Subcom Titan takes the beloved original and updates its design in nearly every facet. This is how you modernize a classic design without sacrificing the overall look and feel of what came before.
