The fixed blade knife is a staple of every outdoorsman’s loadout. Truly, if you’re headed into the backcountry, a rugged cutting tool is likely to quickly become your best friend. And the German craftsmen at Boker have just released a marvelously mighty one in their T3.
Designed by Ed Martin, this modest-looking blade is definitely a case of “more than meets the eye.” Its flash-less appearance does nothing to betray its superb materials — including a sturdy and lightweight textured Micarta handle (done up to resemble wood grain) and a 4.33″ drop point blade made from ultra-high-end N690 stainless steel. This sturdy, full-tang bushcraft knife also features a lanyard hole on the tail end of the tang and comes with a handsome leather sheath for easy carrying. It can be yours for $335.
