Special Edition TBS Boar Bushcraft Knife - Stabilised Curly Birch - DC4 Edition

£169.95
TBS Boar Bushcraft Knife - SPECIAL EDITION

This model is no show pony, although it will hold it's own in any beauty pageant, it is built tough and will perform faultlessly in the field. It benefits from being made out of super tough Bohler N690co Cobalt enriched steel which is a specialist knife steel specifically designed for hard use.  Each one of these knives ae numbered and are a limited edition


We have chosen to make the Special Edition with High Grade Bohler N690 Stainless steel which has been selected as has high hardness and great wear resistance and is one of Bohlers premium Martensitic stainless steels. It differs slightly from the N695 Stainless Steel simply because Bohler have added Cobalt and Vanadium which increases the hardness. This in turn gives you greater edge holding properties. It is ideal for hardened cutting tools 

The blades have a full "Scandi" grind to them that are 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; MUCH easier than a knife with a secondary bevel! 

This model is handled in highly durable and weather resistant Stabilised Curly Birch and it is wonderfully ergonomic and fits the hand perfectly for hours of hard work. We will only use Stabilised materials from Raffir in Denmark as, quite simply, it is the best on the market. Everyone claims to have the best on the market but in their case it is 100% true. They do not stabilise their woods in a vacuum (as everyone else does), they use a pressure chamber. This process enables them to get over double the amount of resin into the timber than anyone else can.

I have been using a Boar with Raffir stabilised wood for 3 years now and it is simply brilliant. There has been no movement, no swelling and has proven to be highly weather resistant.  


Our leatherwork has been a phenomenal success and, whilst we were very happy with it, there is always room for tinkering and improvement so there is now a raft of new sheaths available with the Boar that I know you will love.

The special edition comes with a choice of high quality leather sheaths, the first is the Multi Carry variant 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. It also is designed to be able to attach different accessories to the front of the sheath like a DC4 Sharpening stone or TBS Firesteel.

We have twinned this Special Edition with your choice of Army size (9.5mm) TBS Firesteels and a Fallkniven DC4 (Diamond Ceramic) or a CC4 (Ceramic Ceramic) sharpening stone to make a truly versatile and useful package for the field. All in all this is a equates to an uber premium product that I know you will be using for many years to come.
