WHAT IS DENDRITIC COBALT?
Boye knives are not made of steel or iron-based metallurgy. They are made of Dendritic Cobalt, a superperforming alloy that is 10% denser than steel, with internal carbide crystals that actually do the cutting! These blades cut up to 100X longer, penetrate deeper, and sharpen in seconds.
WORLD’S CUTTING RECORD?
In 1985, Boye Knives performed what may be the world’s record cutting test. A Boye dendritic knife cut 1” hemp marine grade rope for 15 hours over 3 days of cutting without resharpening. The blade is still making clean cuts through that rope! See cutting picture.
NO RUST – LASTS INDEFINITELY
Unlike stainless steel knives, which will rust in salt water and need replacing, Boye knives won’t rust! The knives won’t get stuck closed or lose their edge. An investment in a Boye knife will pay off for years.
THE BOYE DENT
This scallop-shaped safety feature in the rocker arm reduces accidental closure from downward pressure.
Lightweight, but strong and unbreakable, the Zytel fiberglass-filled nylon handle is textured with a magnified pattern of the microscopic carbide crystals that are in the blade.
EACH BLADE IS UNIQUE
The surface finish of each blade has slight variations that occur naturally from our manufacturing process. See photo of 3 knives.
