TBS Lynx is a really useful sized knife and is just the ticket for a great little all rounder. It is smaller than the Fixed blade Boar but is still big enough to cope with pretty much any task you put it to and still fits the hand very nicely.

The Lynx has come about as we have had so many great compliments about the TBS Boar EDC folding pocket knife. Quite a common comment was 'The EDC is a brilliant folding knife, have you ever thought of making a fixed blade the same sort of size?' Well I had a sit down and, low and behold, the Lynx was born.

It is basically in between the size of the Boar EDC and the Boar Fixed Blade and is 7.2in (180mm) overall with a 3.5in (85mm) blade that is Scandi Ground and RAZOR sharp. I have chosen to offer this knife in two different steels and two different handle variants as, to be completely honest, these combinations have become really firm favourites as they just perfom REALLY well in the field.

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. It is generally considered that Carbon Steel is slightly harder and holds an edge a bit longer, but requires more maintenance as it is slightly more prone to corrosion due to the lower chromium content.

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 handles are, of course, wonderfully ergonomic like all of our knife models, and have a palm swell that really helps you maintain a firm grip. We have chosen to handle the Lynx in a choice of two of the most user friendly materials out there - Curly Birch and Micarta. Both have their merits and it was very difficult to choose bewteen them so we thought why not have both?

The sheath is a high quality leather product that allows you to carry the knife in the regular way or offers the versatility of being able to be carried a linear fashion along a belt or to be attached to the strap of a bag or even on MOLLE type webbing if need be.

The Lynx, of course, follows the same theme as other TBS Knives by being made from High Grade Steels, top quality handle materials, great leatherwork and being all European in the materials and construction. No dubious Far Eastern materials just good, tried and tested quality materials and manufacture.

TBS Knives have been very well received and are now being used daily in many Coutries around the World. I have now seen independant reiviews in languages I don't even recognise and there seems to be a very common theme - people love 'em!
