Mk I TBS Lynx Bushcraft Neck Knife - Turkish Walnut - Multi Carry Sheath
The Lynx, of course, follows the same theme as other TBS Knives by being made from High Grade Steels, top quality handle materials, great leatherwork and being all European in the materials and construction. No dubious Far Eastern materials just good, tried and tested quality materials and manufacture. TBS Knives have been very well received and are now being used daily in many Countries around the World. I have now seen independent reviews in languages I don't even recognise and there seems to be a very common theme - people love 'em!
The sheath is a high quality leather product that allow you to carry the knife in the regular way or offers the versatility of being able to be carried a linear fashion along a belt or to be attached to the strap of a bag or even on MOLLE type webbing if need be. The additional straps also allow a very handy option of being to add a variety of pouches to the front to allow you to carry a firesteel, survival kit or any other product that you use regularly in the field.
TBS Lynx is a really useful sized knife and is just the ticket for a great little all rounder. It is smaller than the Fixed blade Boar but is still big enough to cope with pretty much any task you put it to and still fits the hand very nicely.
The Lynx has come about as we have had so many great compliments about the TBS Boar EDC folding pocket knife. Quite a common comment was "The EDC is a brilliant folding knife, have you ever thought of making a fixed blade the same sort of size?" Well I had a sit down and, low and behold, the Lynx was born.
There is an saying that makes complete sense when it comes to size - "You can catch a big fish with a small hook but you can't catch a small fish with a big hook".
It is basically in between the size of the Boar EDC and the Boar Fixed Blade and is 7.2" (180mm) overall with a 3.5" (85mm) blade that is 3mm thick, Scandi Ground and RAZOR sharp. I have chosen to offer this knife in N695 Stainless steel because after using it in so many other models it has all the benefits of a High Carbon Tool Steel with none of the down sides and it simply performs REALLY well in the field.
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 a variant of our knives 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.
We do have a very limited supply of K720 High Carbon Steel Models.
The handles are, of course, wonderfully ergonomic like all of our knife models, and have a palm swell that really helps you maintain a firm grip. We have chosen to handle the Lynx in a choice of the most user friendly materials out there - Curly Birch, Micarta, Turkish Walnut & Olive Wood. All have their merits and it was very difficult to choose between them so we thought why not have them all?
