Boye Knives Basic 3 - Cobalt (Custom)

Beyond the Basics

There are no bells and whistles here. No fancy accouterments or adornment. No frivolous details or features because this is not a showpiece. Designed for maximum versatility, strength, and steadfastness – the Boye Knives Basic 3 is an all-around survival knife that excels both on land and sea. 

The star of the show is the 4" dropped-edge Boye Dendritic Cobalt blade that's pioneered by David Boye himself. The one-piece, unbreakable Boye Dendritic Cobalt blade is 100% rust-proof and features unsurpassed edge holding, material penetration, corrosion resistance, and ease of sharpening.

Multi-functional by design, the back of the blade is ground to form two sharp 90 degree angles (known as scrape edges) which can be used to scrape paint, plastic, fiberglass, wood, or most other rough surfaces, including rust on metal.

In an emergency, the blade can be used as a wedge, pry bar (with great care) and the butt of the handle and the back of the blade can also be used for hammering. And as a last resort, the Boye Knives Basic 3 can be used a tactical defense knife, for throwing or lashed to a pole to create a spear (you get the idea).

Completing the package is a custom Kydex-lined sheath and cord wrap on the handle – a 7-foot piece of 225 lb test strength accessory cord – which provides excellent grip and can be used in an emergency for fish jigging to a tourniquet. Every aspect of the Boye Knives Basic 3 is carefully considered to help you thrive, not only survive in any situation. And with all things considered, maybe this bad boy is not so basic after all.
