First Look: Boker T3 Knife

First Look: Boker T3 Knife

Boker has been producing high-quality knives and blades since the 17th century, and that legacy continues with the company's newest blade: the Boker T3. Designed in conjunction with Martin Knives, this rugged outdoor and emergency knife  was developed in Louisiana by Ed Martin. Ed’s immense talent as a knifemaker is based on his ability to apply his many years of practical experience into the creation of a knife that meets or exceeds your expectations and requirements for a knife, while also creating a knife that offers classic lines and an appealing design.

The beautifully formed handle features scales of brown linen Micarta, which offer a secure grip in any situation. With a 4.5 mm thick blade, the knife is exceptionally sturdy and will stand up to the rough-and-tumble needs of the field. The sturdy, solid construction of the blade is also due to the material used in its construction: N690 steel. This blade steel is similar in composition to 440C steel and is also sometimes compared to VG10 blade steel made in Japan. The 1.07 percent carbon content in this stainless steel makes for a supremely durable blade with heightened edge-retention qualities, both features that make it a prominent choice in the manufacturing of surgical blades.

The delicately blasted finish of the N690 blade on the Boker T3 balances good looks and practicality, and the knife also comes with a high-quality leather sheath that can be worn vertically or horizontally.
