TBS Boar EDC Folding Pocket Knife

There was such a natural progression for TBS by making a folding knife and they have done an excellent job with the Boar. It has some great qualities and is a perfect carry for anyone that wants a high quality, every day carry, pocket knife.

When it came to the non-locking pocket knife version of the Boar they decided to offer it in N695 Stainless Steel as, quite simply, it requires less maintenance. This is important for a knife that will be in your pocket the vast majority of the time picking up all sorts "pocket fluff" and salt from perspiration. TBS did not put a thumb stud (or similar) on the EDC as this makes it a much more user friendly product in many more Countries of the World where, to carry a knife all the time, it needs to be a product that needs to be opened two handed.

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!

All the materials have their obvious qualities and not only look great they perform 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 handles are also wonderfully ergonomic and fit the hand perfectly for hours of hard work.

This is a perfect "EDC" pocket knife as it has a 70mm non locking blade but has all the features of its bigger brothers. Lanyard not included.

High Grade Bohler N695 Stainless steel which has a high hardness and great wear resistance and is one of Bohlers premium stainless steels. TBS have decided to make the EDC knife in this steel as, after quite some testing, 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.
