Since his win on Season 4, episode 3 of History Channel’s Forged in Fire, James Helm has been making waves. Recently, Helm joined forces with Boker, adding his unique utilitarian style to their Boker Plus line. The latest offering from Boker Plus comes their new collaboration with Helm—the Little Rok.
The Boker Plus Little Rok
Much like all of James Helm’s designs, the Little Rok is elegant in its rugged simplicity. The drop point design is known for its versatility in either outdoors or combat/self-defense applications. As a result, the Little Rok makes a solid choice for military or law enforcement personnel, looking for a well-rounded option. Likewise, it is perfect for a bug out bag or as your EDC utility or bushcrafting knife.
The 8.66 overall length of the Little Rok is constructed of SK-85 high carbon steel. Known for its excellent wear resistance and edge retention, SK-856 is gaining popularity for its affordability. A black powder coat covers the entire length of the knife, to aid in rust prevention.
At 4.09-inches, the blade sits right in what many consider the sweet spot for bushcrafting and general utility. Additionally, the .20-inch-thick stock keeps it robust for hard use, while the high saber grind provides for a keen edge.
Built for sustained comfort during extended use, the ergonomic handle features contoured green Micarta handle scales. The scales are fastened to the full tang via hollow rivets, that can additionally double as lanyard holes. They also add to the overall aesthetics, as well.
The Little Rok comes with a heavy-duty pancake style kydex sheath with rivets lining its extremities for multiple clip options. As a result, you can select your preferred attachment, such as Molle-Lok, Tek-Lok, etc. However, the sheath comes with Boker’s practical belt adaptor already attached.
The Boker Plus Little Rok is available now, with an MSRP of $129.95. For more info, please visit BokerUSA.com.
