Boye Sheepsfoot Folder with Titanium Marlinspike - Yellow
An extremely well crafted folder designed to be on a boat and in any rescue or first responders kit.
The blade is made of a metal alloy of David Boye's own creation: Boye Dentritic Cobalt, which isn't forged like steel, rather, each blade is cast in a porcelain mold. As each blade cools the alloy forms a dense structure of hard carbide crystals, which makes for a superior cutting edge with materials such as rope, rigging line and netting. It is also completely rust and corrosion proof, unlike other 'ultra stainless' steels, as well as non-magnetic, and will not interfere with compasses or any other magnetic equipment. Lest we forget, it has great edge retention and sharpens very quickly on a soft whetstone.
The titanium marlinspike is endlessly useful for tasks the blade is not suited for: serving as a knot undo-er, shackle key, digger, poker and prier. Also features a lanyard loop rated to 100lbs.
