David Boye began his knife making career in 1971, and shortly after that he authored the book "Step by Step Knife making: You Can Do It," which is now considered a classic in the knife making universe. Boye is widely regarded as a leader among modern custom knifemakers, and his sense of design and innovation as well as his craftsmanship have led to the production of knives that many consider true works of art. Boye's discovery of dendritic metallurgy helped change the way that traditional blades are made.
David Boye Knives are available at KnifeArt, an authorized dealer of Boye Knives. Because the dendritic steel in a Boye knife is resistant to corrosion from salt water, these non-magnetic knives are ideal for boaters and fishermen who sail and fish in fresh water or salt water.
