Product Description

TBS Boar Folding Pocket Knife.

The Boar Folding Pocket Knife - There was such a natural progression for us by making a folding knife and we think we have done an excellent job with the Boar. It has some great qualities and is a perfect carry for anyone that wants a high quality, every day carry, pocket knife 

When it came to the non-locking pocket knife version of the Boar we decided to offer it in N695 Stainless Steel as, quite simply, it requires less maintenance. This is important for a knife that will be in your pocket the vast majority of the time picking up all sorts "pocket fluff" and salt from perspiration. We also, quite deliberately, did not put a thumb stud, but we have added a thumb nick on the EDC as this makes it a much more user friendly product in many more Countries of the World where, to carry a knife all the time, it needs to be a product that needs to be opened two handed. Obviously this makes it a much more useful knife for travel but in all cases you should check local laws and by-laws prior to visiting or purchasing in your chosen country.

There is now a wider choice in the handle material between a Super Grade Curly Birch, Turkish Walnut, Canvas Micarta or Stag Antler All the materials have their obvious qualities and are all easy to maintain and look great.

There is a choice of blade, there is either a full "Scandi" grind to it that is wickedly sharp straight out of the box. There are big benefits to having a proper Scandi grind to a knife and these are mainly to do with edge maintenance. A Scandi grind essentially means that the whole bevel of the knife is the edge (there is no secondary bevel) so when it comes to sharpening life is made very simple. When sharpening you can simply place the entire knife on the stone, roll it up onto the bevel and you will always achieve the correct angle for sharpening.
A Hollow Grind which was an obvious choice to add to the range as it allows finer slicing but still maintains strength we require from a high quality pocket knife. We recommend you use something as simple as a Lansky Blade Medic to sharpen this model, it works very well is super easy to use.

It is handled in a choice of Micarta which is a great material for the task as it not only looks great it is VERY easy to maintain as they pretty impervious to most things, Curly Birch or Turkish Walnut which is also a great looking material and very easy to maintain. The handles are also wonderfully ergonomic and fit the hand perfectly for hours of hard work.

This is a perfect "EDC" pocket knife as it has a 70mm non locking blade but has all the features of its bigger brothers. Lanyard not included.

High Grade Bohler N695 Stainless steel which has a high hardness and great wear resistance and is one of Bohlers premium stainless steels. We have decided to make the EDC knife in this steel as, after quite some testing, we have found that it performs extremely well.  It has a higher Carbon content that many other stainless steels which means it holds an edge longer and can be tempered to the same degree as Carbon Steels. This particular steel actually has a higher content than many High Carbon Tool Steels. This makes it perform with pretty much all the benefits of Carbon Steel with the added bonus of great corrosion resistance.

Our knife range is manufactured from high quality European materials by a top, well known, European manufacturer in small batches; they are NOT churned out in their thousands in a factory in the Far East. This allows us to have ultimate control over quality and materials and we are extremely happy with the results. All models of knife will be logoed with the Boars Head.
