This is a very well designed, high quality new combat knife from Jesper Voxnaes and Boker. It’s constructed from one solid piece of N690BO stainless steel with a beautiful stonewashed finish. The handle is contoured canvas Micarta with holes drilled through it allowing for the knife to be easily attached to a stick for a homemade spear. The clip point blade is an excellent tactical design that can also be pressed into hunting tasks with ease. Part of what makes a good fixed blade knife is having a good sheath and that’s definitely the case for the Boker JTN. The black leather sheath is extremely well made, visually appealing, and durable. It’s got a pouch on the front for extra survival gear and has Velcro and button attachments on the belt loop so the sheath can be put on and removed without having to undo your belt. A very nice knife from Boker that’s built like a tank and available at www.knifecenter.com.
More about the Boker JTN:
The original idea for the JTN (Join the Navy) is based on old Navy survival knives from the time of World War II. This design, by Jesper Voxnaes, translates the compact, sturdy and practical characteristics into a more contemporary approach. The bellied handle scales of the full tang construction consist of green canvas Micarta and are mounted on yellow liners. The special shaping provides excellent ergonomics for any range of application, and the handle end has been designed as a hammer. The chosen blade material is N690BO steel, which has proven its worth and performance in a multitude of other knives in our lineup. Includes a high quality leather sheath.
