TBS Lynx Bushtool - The Ultimate Bushcraft Survival Knife!
No compromise........that was the brief. The NEW Lynx Bushtool is a no compromise Bushcraft Survival knife that differs slightly from the Boar and Grizzly Bushtools simply because we have chosen a Scandi Grind with no traction coating. This has leaned more towards a more traditional Bushcraft Knife but is still a knife that needs almost no maintenance.
This takes a TBS Knife to another level with a UNBELIEVABLY sharp Scandi Grind which is extremely durable which is made possible with Cryo Quenching. This process involves cooling the steel down to around -185oc using liquid Nitrogen which, to put it quite simply, improves the performance of the steel. It will make it harder with a finer edge that holds longer and works especially well on this stainless steel.
Now, this doesn't mean that a TBS knife that isn't Cryo Quenched does not perform, it does and will continue to do so, it's just that the Bushtools take this performance to another level.
We have, again, gone for N690co Stainless Steel for the Lynx Bushtool as Steels with a higher Chromium content lend themselves especially well to Cryo Quenching and it is just a great low maintenance steel for such a tool. The blade is 100mm (4") in length and 4mm (1/8") thick at the spine. The wickedly sharp scandi grind is easy to maintain on a fine stone and features a cutout on the spine especially for striking a firesteel.
For the handle we have chosen to use Canvas Micarta. The reason was simple, it performs in all conditions extremely well, it is low maintenance and extremely durable and stable. It is nice and grippy as we have not polished it too much and it features some great looking red liners.
There are a range of sheaths available for this model and we have started with our multi carry leather sheath as it has always proved extremely popular over the years. This sheath is modular and you can add different pouches to the front to carry different accessories. It can be carried in a vertical or horizontal fashion depending on your desire.
With the Bushtools I wanted to create a series of knives that would consistently perform above and beyond, whatever the conditions, be as maintenance free as possible and would keep on trucking when others fall by the wayside. They do not detract from any of our other tools they are just on another level.
All in all I am certain you will love these tools as much as I do as they simply perform all the bushcraft and camp tasks you will it for.
