Mk II TBS Timberwolf Camp Knife - DC4 & Firesteel Edition - Black Micarta
TBS Timberwolf Camp Knife - Mk II
The all new TBS Timberwolf Camp Knife is the latest evolution in the TBS family and we have taken this knife to another level. We are continually learning and evolving at TBS which is why we believe we are simply the best in the business.
We have striven to bring quality, well designed products to the World market and the Timberwolf is part of that continuing evolution. The Timberwolf is a classic Bushcraft Knife with all the brilliant features of a perfect companion tool.
It features a high quality, Hollow (Sabre) ground, Stainless Steel drop point blade that is razor sharp straight out of the box and makes camp tasks and general cutting effortless. The 115mm length features more pronounced fingerguard, a short Ricasso and a Choil which makes for perfect indexing in almost any grip and enhances your ability to make powerful and controlled cuts. I know that the modern fad is to have a Bushcraft knife with a blade that simply disappears into the handle with no guard, ricasso or choil, well, NOT here. In my opinion knives like this are far easier to cut your index finger when you choke up on the handle making them a danger to you.
The handle is wonderfully ergonomic, just like all of our other models. It features a natural sweep to the back with a god sized palm swell and this makes for a perfect fit to your hand and allows your wrist and shoulder to sit in a more natural position. Straight back handled knives make you unnaturally straighten your wrist and raise your shoulder when cutting vertically which means you fatigue quicker and are not as comfortable to use.
The Timberwolf features 3 different handle material options, Curly Birch, Turkish Walnut and Black Micarta. All our Timber is sustainably sourced and we love the fact that our wood is coming from trees that were planted by the current owners Parents, Grand Parents and Great Grand Parents. It sits perfectly with our ethos at TBS about treating everyone who works for us and everyone within our supply chain fairly. That includes fair pay, good working environment and doing everything as ecologically minded as we/they can.
Of course, if you select a Timber handle, you will need to maintain them with cleaning and oiling that can be part of the joy of owning a real heritage piece of cutlery that will last generations. We advise oiling with a boiled linseed oil but there are many other oils and waxes out there that will nourish the wood throughout its life and keep it as water resistant as possible and this can be down to your personal preference.
The Timberwolf, of course, features our newest upgraded leatherwork which are a combination of high quality leather with innovative designs. Our modular sheaths have also been phenomenally popular as they offer something different from the norm that everyone churns out. They are all made from high quality Full Grain leather and feature a brilliant array of accessories and carry options so you can really tailor your knife to suit your needs.

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.
Typical Steel Analysis:
N695 Stainless Steel - Carbon 1.05%, Molybdenum 0.50%, Chromium 17.00%, Silicon 0.40%, Manganese 0.40%. (HRC 58)
After now owning this knife for a while and having used and bashed the life out of it extensively I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t say enough good. I was sceptical about what was being offered for the price if you look at the the steel used etc but took the plunge and was nicely surprised it comes wickedly sharpe, the handle sits perfectly in even big hands, the blade is well balanced needs very little maintenance and is super tough even with a hollow grind youÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ll have nothing to worry about. The leather work is great. You would expect to pay far more than you do for the quality you get
