I actually had the Fox prototyped 6 months before it went into production and we had planned on releasing it in a few months but, I just kept going back to it. Rather absent mindedly when going into the great outdoors, I found I always seemed to have my Fox with me. If that isn't a sign that we should put it into full production sooner then what is?
We have always striven to offer you a choice with our products and the Fox is just that. It offers a great alternative to our bigger folding locking knives and sits very nicely between the EDC's like the Boar and the Wildcat, and larger folders.
We have chosen to make the Fox only in Bohlers phenomenal N690co Stainless Knife Steel. N690co is a Martensitic chromium steel with cobalt, molybdenum and vanadium added especially to make hardened cutting tools with excellent edge-holding properties. It was developed for tools and components which can be hardened to very high hardness levels and great corrosion resistance. When fine ground it produces a wickedly sharp edge and will retain that edge far longer than many other steels available on the market today.
The very clean shaped handles on the Fox feature Super Grade Curly Birch, Turkish Walnut or Black Micarta. These materials are not only durable they look great and are super easy to maintain as you simply need to clean and oil them. Of course, the more oil you apply to any wood the more weather resistant it becomes.

- 3.35" (85mm) length blade
