TBS Boar Bushcraft Knife - Standard Sheath - Military Model

TBS Boar Bushcraft Knife - MILITARY MODEL

The TBS Boar is simply a great knife and is difficult to improve on but, after 9 months of hard work, we believe we have made the ultimate, toughest, hardest wearing and durable Boar yet. 

This model has come about as we sent models of our knives to members of the British Military Survival Training team for their honest opinion and after putting them through their paces they came back with some feedback. Essentially we were very happy to hear that there wasn't a lot to do as they were very happy with the overall design, cutting ability and comfort in use. They did say that their preference would be for them to be made in Stainless Steel, have a stable hard handle and have a synthetic sheath option.

Well, we listened, and now we have what we are calling the Military Model.......

We have chosen to make the Military Model only in Bohlers phenomenal N690 Stainless Knife Steel. N690 is a Martensitic chromium steel with cobalt, molybdenum and vanadium added 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. 

The 110mm drop point blade has a proper full, ground to zero, Scandi Grind which is not only easy to maintain it is incredibly sharp straight out of the box. It makes for exceptional cutting ability and edge retention and I am certain you will be impressed. 

The 120mm handle is made from a super hard Canvas Micarta which is really durable, stable and essentially maintenance free. It is, course, shaped to be wonderfully ergonomic just like all TBS Knives. If you want a knife that can be "Rode all day and put away wet" then the Military Model is for you!!      

We have kept things simple with this model and twinned it with our simplified TBS Standard Sheath. We have found that there are a group of customers who just want a great cutting tool and want it with a really simply sheath so this is an ideal piece of kit. All in all this is a equates to an uber premium product that I know you will be using for many years to come.

Perfect tool for the Bushcraft community. Beautiful workmanship which balances so well in the hand. It feels right and oozes quality at the same time. Well done TBS.

I ordered the fixed boar with N695 Stainless blade, I choose that steel because I live in the wet and humid Pacific NW. It is my first bush-craft knife so I can't speak to much about performance because I have no real basis of comparison. I will say that over the last two days it performed all the tasks related to fire building, some basic carving, and notching stakes very well and I am personally pleased with it. I live on the west cost of the USA and it arrived in 6 days (5 days, considering mail doesn't run on Sunday in the US). I didn't have to pay any duty or tax on the item, just needed to sign for it. In my experience international shipping from the UK is fast and straight forward. Thanks TBS. I like the look and performance of this knife and the maple burl is beautiful. I will be purchasing the Lynx to use as an every day and work knife.

Ordered the knife with next day delivery and arrived 11.30 the next day. First impressions, the knife was well packed, oiled and extremely sharp out of the box, the scales felt nice and smooth with a lovely grain in the curly birch which still felt comfortable and grippy, I have medium sized hands and the handle suits me just fine. I like the fact the sheath comes with a pouch for the DC4 stone and matching ferrocerium rod finished in curly birch, this is a nice feature, its great that the sheath can be worn horizontal as well as vertical as I go Kayaking and don't want the knife digging in while paddling. Overall the workmanship on the knife and sheath is good and I'm very pleased with my purchase.
