Boker Ed Martin T3 Fixed 4.33" N690 Bead Blast Blade, Brown Micarta Handles, Brown Leather Sheath - 120665
The rugged outdoor and emergency Boker T3 fixed blade knife was developed by Ed Martin in Louisiana. His immense talent as a knifemaker lies in his ability to turn his many years of practical experience into a knife concept that does not just meet all requirements and demands for such a knife, but also offers classic lines and an appealing design. The perfectly formed handle has scales of brown linen Micarta, offering a secure grip in any situation. The blade is exceptionally sturdy, thanks to its ample material thickness of 0.18", and its low taper - which makes the blade extremely durable, not unlike a bushcraft knife. The delicately blasted finish of the N690 blade combines solid design and practicality. With a hidden lanyard hole in the tang. Comes with a high-quality leather sheath that can be worn vertically or horizontally.
About the Designer: Ed Martin of Martin Knives
Martin Knives is a family-owned company from Texas, consisting of Hank and Ed Martin. Their designs are very diverse and range from classic models such as Loveless or Randall over pioneer time knives to modern tactical knives and titanium frame lock folders.
Newton Martin, who passed away in February of 2018 at the age of 47 from the consequences of leukemia, was not only an ingenious knifemaker with an extraordinarily wide range but also a very close friend of Boker. His friendly and open nature, with which he has always willingly supported even newcomers to the knife making scene, was one of his defining characteristics.
Bohler N690 Stainless Steel
The cobalt-alloyed N690 by Bohler (not to be confused with the lower-grade N695) is a very reliable upper middle-grade steel that Boker uses in their Solingen factory for a wide variety of projects. The fine-grained N690, which ranks above 440C, offers convincing performance data in all areas. It is often sold as N690Co – the "Co" stands for cobalt and describes the exact same steel.
