TBS Boar Bushcraft Knife - Firesteel Edition - Turkish Walnut

The TBS range of knives are made from top quality European materials and are built to last. We have selected some the best steels for the job, the highest quality handle materials and some great leather work to bring these impeccably made knives to the market.

The Boar Bushcraft Knife - Fire Edition is a great knife for the field and ticks  all the boxes for two of the most important products to carry - A good knife and the ability to make fire.

High Grade Bohler K720 High Carbon Tool steel is one of the toughest steels out there and is used widely to make high precision tools that need to stand up to some serious punishment.  

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.

The blade has a full "Scandi" grind to it that is 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! 

It is handled in Highly Figured Turkish Walnut which is a great wood for the task as it not only looks great it is VERY easy to maintain. The handles are also  wonderfully ergonomic and fit the hand perfectly for hours of hard work. The handle is very slightly longer (1cm) than most knives of this type on the market and this allows more flexibility for positioning for different uses or simply a better fit for users with larger hands.

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.

Our knife range is manufactured from high quality European materials by a top, well known, European manufacturer in small batches; they are NOT churned out in their thousands in a factory in the Far East. This allows us to have ultimate control over quality and materials and we are extremely happy with the results.

The Firesteel

The firesteel in this model is our own TBS ferrocium rod Army sized Firesteel (9.4mm thick) that gives a shower of sparks at over 3000c (5400f). It makes firelighting SO much easier and will give you thousands of strikes. It also comes with its own, very useful striker which has a useful roamer measuring scale and a bottle opener. The striker with this steel gives a MUCH better shower of white hot sparks than the back of your knife. 
A matching handled firesteel which is essentially the same product except it has a Turkish Walnut handle (striker not included)

Excellent store, highly recommend. We don't have the luxury of Bush craft Stores like this in Oxford. Was recommended a TBS Boar knife and very pleased with it. I went down to get a Mora Bushcraft Black and then was allowed to handle the various knives and settled on the TBS Boar. Will be going back again soon for sure.

The Bushcraft Store is one of my favourite online shops. I bought Boar and Timberwolf knives and a lot of leather items (knife sheaths, folding saw belt pouches, axe belt loops, pouches with tin and firesteel, poppered sheaths droppers, d-ring loops etc.) as well as fire starter stuff like FatBoy blanks ferrorods, stormproof matches, waterproof matchbox... so a lot of goodies 😍 All these products are extremely useful for me and their customer support is second to none. I strongly recommend TBS as one of the best professional bushcraft store.

What a great website! Ordered the TBS Boar on Sunday and it has just arrived. Quality made knife, which I look forward to using. And with Christmas just around the corner, I may have to drop some ever so subtle hints to the missus, that the next one I want is the Grizzly. Thanks guys.
