Boye Pointed Tip Folder with Titanium Marlinspike - Blue Serrated
An extremely well crafted folder designed to hold up around salt water, and makes an extremely well rounded everyday carry knife. Blade is partially serrated.
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.
