The Boye Cobalt Basic 3 is a rugged, highly versatile, awesome cutting tool, stout yet minimalist. It has an aggressive edge and keeps it, and is permanently rust free. It comes with a vertical or horizontal wear black Kydex-lined sheath with a Velcro flap closure.
The Basic 3 has an overall length of 8" with a blade length of 4" and handle length of 4" and weighs 6 oz.
The lightly polished cast blade bears the markings of its fiery birth. The blade takes on metal flow lines and the natural grain texture of the porcelain mold, giving it a subtle "organic" look. The irregularities and patterns are superficial and make each knife unique. The finish is very wear resistant and is a good choice for an all around working tool. The blade is smooth-to-the-touch with a lustrous appearance.
This is a virtually indestructible, powerful, lifetime tool that can serve you for years, and be passed on to the next generation.
