Boye Cobalt Basic 3 Fixed Blade
The Boye Basic 3 is a virtually indestructible fixed blade knife designed to use around salt water. It comes with a vertical or horizontal wear black Kydex-lined sheath with a Velcro flap closure.
The whole knife is made of a metal alloy of David Boye's own creation: Boye Dentritic Cobalt, which isn't forged like steel, rather, each knife 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.
