TBS Boar Folding Pocket Knife.

How do you make one of the best knives on the market today better...?

It's a tough one as the original design was so good we struggled to improve it as it simply didn't need any improvement. The natural progression was to go from a high grade steel to and even higher grade steel, which is now what we've done with the Mark III.

The Mark II was made from high quality European N695 Stainless Steel, which I am a real fan of but, the steel I am an even bigger fan of is N690co Stainless Steel. Bohlers phenomenal N690co Stainless Knife Steel is a Martensitic chromium steel with cobalt, molybdenum and vanadium added. This steel is 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.

When I saw there was an option to make our celebrated Boar EDC with a Carbon Fibre handle is was an easy decision to add it to the range. We all know the qualities of Carbon Fibre being extremely lightweight and VERY tough so it was a natural addition. Being a high grade stainless steel this makes this the ultimate pocket folder that will work in any conditions without the issue of rusting or damage. The scales on this model are flat which makes it a slimmer pocket folder and being lighter it makes for a perfect EDC whether you are in a suit or in the woods.

The Boar EDC is exactly what it says on the tin, a pocket knife that you can carry, every day, in 95% of the World. It features a 70mm (2.75") blade that is a full Scandi Grind.


There is now a wider choice in the handle material with the EDC. We now offer it in Super Grade Curly Birch, Super Grade Turkish Walnut, Stag Antler, Canvas Micarta, Carbon Fibre or Black Micarta. All the materials have their obvious qualities and are all easy to maintain and look great. Ultimately the choice is yours but If you going to be in wetter environments then Antler or Micarta is probably a better option. Naturally with timber handles they will need a little more care and will need cleaning and oiling more regularly. The more oil and product you can into timber the more water resistant it will become.

The belt pouch that is an option on this model is our own design and is impeccably made from high grade leather and is thicker and more robust than before. It is a full cover type belt pouch and is designed to hold the knife with or without the press stud. This is a design feature to ensure that you do not lose your knife on the move and, as such, each pouch will be very close fitting. The pouch will "break in" and soften over time like any good pair of boots and we find that the attachment of a lanyard to the lanyard hole of the handle is a good addition to aid in removing the knife from the pouch.

The EDC has always been extremely popular and I am sure the Mark III will be even more popular then before. I know you can buy cheaper knives and you can probably even buy a copy of our knives now but they simply won't be the same quality. All our knives are European made by Master Cutlers and made with European Steels and materials.
