Description
The TBS range of knives are made from top quality European materials and are built to last. TBS 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 Folding Knife - There was such a natural progression for TBS by making a folding knife and we think they have done an excellent job with the Boar. It has some great qualities and is a perfect carry for anyone that doesn't want a full size fixed blade knife. 

The Lock Knife is a Liner Lock type knife which is not only safer for this type of knife it allows a fully ergonomic handle with no irritating cuts outs for the lock button. A lock back, in use, can irritate your hand; a liner lock can also be safer in hard use as you cannot press the lock button on the back and close the knife as there simply isn't one to press. You can also make a liner lock to extremely high tolerances, making the blade extremely stable. 

The knife features High Grade Bohler N695 Stainless steel which has a high hardness and great wear resistance and is one of Bohlers premium stainless steels. They have decided to make a variant of their knives in this steel as, after quite some testing, they have found that it performs extremely well. It has a higher Carbon content than many other stainless steels which means it holds an edge longer and can be tempered to the same degree as Carbon 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, 

It is handled with Super Grade Turkish Walnut, it not only looks great it's very easy to maintain. The handles are also wonderfully ergonomic and full size which is rare in this type of knife. They fit the hand perfectly for hours of hard work. Please bear in mind that every wooden handled knife will be different. TBS select top quality woods for all of their products and figuring will vary from product to product, the TBS 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 TBS to have ultimate control over quality and materials and we are extremely happy with the results.
