TBS Boar Bushcraft Knife - Standard Sheath - Turkish Walnut

£109.95
The TBS Boar is simply a fantastic knife. It is your true all rounder and easily our most popular model because it not only combines high quality materials with great European workmanship it is unbelievable value.    

We have kept this model truly simple as it is The TBS Boar with a simple slip sheath, it is still available in the 2 great steels and you can always add a TBS Multi Carry sheath or a TBS Nordic Style Sheath at a later date if you so choose.


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 Turkish Walnut which is a great material 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.


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.

This has just become my favourite knife! I have had it a couple of weeks now and it performs brilliantly, really sharp straight out of the box and the curly birch handle on mine not only looks good it really fits the hand well. The sheath is good as well as I like to carry a knife along my belt instead of the traditional way as I find it doesn't get in the way as much, especially if you are in and out of your 4x4. Well done lads it is a real asset to the stable and I can't wait for the folding variants to arrive - you'd better put me one by!!

Hi Jim, Just a quick word of thanks to yourself and the guys on the stand at Weston park last Saturday, I must apologise for taking up more of your time than I should but you convinced me to take purchase of your TBS Bushcraft knife and I must admit, "what a piece of kit", so much so that I have just ordered another one for my son, once again many thanks for your help and advice.

I bought the TBS Boar stainless steel and walnut handle (after a bad experience with a knife of different brand with birch handle and carbon steel). The Boar is excellent, strong enough to baton hard wood, delicate enough to carve out small wooden animals. The only thing was that I had a problem getting the walnut handle a good finish that wouldn´t go off or look bad quickly. But after using Tung oil (china oil) and sand in the oil with a 800 grit sandpaper, it now looks great. Excellent knife, highly recommended.

I just received my order of the curly birch boar knife. Its outstanding, better than expected. I am 100% glad I purchased the boar. It is going to be with me, on all my adventures. Thank you for taking care of us bushcrafters, and thanks to andy for changing my order for me. Fast shipping, well packaged and courteous sales people. I love it. From here in the states, I say God bless Great Britain and The Bushcraft Store. Thanks again. Joe
