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. Hiss 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 cobalt steel in a Boye knife is resistant to rust and corrosion from salt water, these non-magnetic knives are ideal for boaters and fishermen who sail and fish in fresh water or salt water. Because they're non-magnetic, they also won't interfere with compasses or electronic equipment.

All of our David Boye knives for sale are handmade in the U.S. at their Dolan Springs, Arizona knife shop. The BCFK Drop Point Blue Folding Knife has a 3-inch partially serrated blade designed for cutting that is specially cast and then hand ground from the cobalt alloy. The result is an edge that you can maintain with relative ease. The BCFK Sheepsfoot Blade Yellow Folding Knife has a fully serrated Boye Dendritic Cobalt 3-inch blade and a Fiberglass reinforced nylon handle and a titanium marlinspike. Both the Drop Point and Sheepsfoot have an oval hole that makes them easy to open even on rough seas. The Cobalt Basic 3 Fixed Blade Knife sports a 4-inch cobalt blade and a handle with a utility cord wrap. The Basic 3 is resistant to rust and designed for cutting both with a simple cut and using a cutting board.
