The Boker Plus Gnome is a little knife of very unusual design. Knifemaker Jesper Voxnaes, under the name of Vox design, worked with Boker Plus to come up with the Gnome. It is a neck knife with a Kydex press in sheath and neck chain. It is available with three different handle materials: Micarta, Olive wood and Stag horn.
Despite its diminutive size, it fits firmly and comfortably in the hand, the index finger sits in the large choil, with the thumb on the spine and the second finger gripping the rear body of the handle. The Micarta version has red liners between the 440c stainless steel full tang and the green Micarta. At the widest point the handle is 12.2mm wide. The rear steel tube on the handle has a 7.8mm diameter hole and the front one 3.6mm, the rear one is ideal for fitting a parachord lanyard to improve ergonomics. I presume this was the intention of the designer by having such a large rear hole – I fitted a lanyard and indeed it was a lot better. One great thing with that is that you can personalise the knife with the type and colour of lanyard, add a skull bead too and you are really getting cool. Getting on to the blade, it is a modified Wharncliffe shape and came fairly sharp out of the box. Already a best seller with legions of fans, the Gnome is a cool looking, perfect small neck knife, ideal for any collection.
