If local laws are quite restrictive about the kind of folding knife you can carry, you might think you're out of luck. Most non-locking folders just aren't cut out to do more than the lightest of tasks. They also tend to be old designs that might not fit with what you want out of your everyday carry. The Boker Plus XS on the other hand bucks the trend with materials and design elements from modern EDC locking folders, resulting in a tactical slipjoint that's more than capable for EDC.

The Boker Plus XS was designed in collaboration with custom knifemaker Chad Los Banos, blending elegance with tactical cues. It features a sharp 3" clip point blade made from 440C stainless steel that's tough enough for EDC thanks to its high hardness rating of 57-58 Rc. Unlike the usual nail nick you'd find on traditional slipjoints, the XS deploys easily via dual ambidextrous thumb studs on either side of the blade. With the blade deployed, the slipjoint on the knife doesn't actually lock. Instead, the XS features enough spring-loaded resistance against the blade to keep it from closing on you when doing most everyday tasks.

An ergonomic choil by the base of the blade conforms to your index finger for added control and grip options, while the overall shape of the handle leverages the placement of your hand to help keep the blade deployed and on task. The jimping at the top of the blade also helps you establish firm control over precise cuts. The XS's G10 scales stay grippy when wet and keep the overall weight of the knife down for easy pocket carrying. Its reversible pocket clip also adds some versatility to your carry options.

Just because your options are limited doesn't mean you have to EDC a bad knife or no knife at all. But as always, check with your own local laws first. Pick up a Boker Plus XS and see for yourself just how capable a blade it is at the link below.

"Most non-locking folders just aren't cut out to do more than the lightest of tasks."

Simply amazing how anything ever got done with them over a couple of centuries isn't it? What a nonsense comment. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HBVieA9ifLc&t=5s
Would you buy a car without seat belts? Once upon a time, cars didn't have seat belts yet life went on. Like a seat belt, a lock on a knife is a safety feature. Like most people wouldn't buy a car without seat belts I wouldn't buy a knife without a lock. Sure you can counter with "use a knife properly" and that's all well and good, but accidents are inevitable and I'd rather not have my knife close on my hand.
If you can't use a knife without a lock then you shouldn't be using a knife at all.
OR....You could get possibly the coolest slipjoint and the most unique one as well. The Three Rivers Mfg Nomad. Check them out. https://www.threeriversmfg.com/knives/tr-ltc200-nomad/
