TBS Fox Folding Lock Knife with Belt Pouch - Black Micarta
I actually had the Fox prototyped 6 months before it went into production and we had planned on releasing it in a few months but, I just kept going back to it. Rather absent mindedly when going into the great outdoors, I found I always seemed to have my Fox with me. If that isn't a sign that we should put it into full production sooner then what is?
We have always striven to offer you a choice with our products and the Fox is just that. It offers a great alternative to our bigger folding locking knives and sits very nicely between the EDC's like the Boar and the Wildcat, and the larger folders like the Ahma.
As part of that offering you a choice there are two different grinds available for the Fox. The natural choice for us is to have a scandi grind but I happily recognise that a flat grind is also a very popular option.
We have chosen to make the Fox only in Bohlers phenomenal N690co Stainless Knife Steel. N690co 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 very clean shaped handles on the Fox feature Super Grade Curly Birch, Black Micarta or Turkish Walnut. These woods are not only durable they look great and are super easy to maintain as you simply need to clean and oil them. Of course, the more oil you apply to any wood the more weather resistant it becomes.
The belt pouch with the Fox is, as usual, a sturdy, high quality product that is made from full grain leather and features both stitching and riveting making not only a great looking product it is highly functional and durable.

What a beautiful and well crafted knife /sheaf/firesteel. The knife is shave sharp straight out of the box, the only thing I'm going to do is shape the firesteels handle. Thanks again to the bushcraft team.
