"The best of both worlds in a new blade design"
Here's why you should drop a hundred fifty bucks or more on your boating knife:
You're worth it! - This is a very personal decision, so is owning a boat. Does
that make you nuts? Yes, of course it does! So what! It's your life. You deserve
the best, end of story.
Ergonomically designed: Boye Knives has been handcrafting
knives for 30 years. - They are so well balanced and quick to deploy. What
Feather light: At 2.2 ounces you won't feel it in
your pocket. Reach and click!
No rust: Unlike stainless steel this unique cobalt
chrome alloy will never rust at sea and is non-magnetic.
Titanium clip: Even the clip is the best material
for the job - It's titanium
The best reason of all for those of us who appreciate the finer things in life
is... LOVE...This knife is a thing of beauty, individually hand-made and expertly ground to an edge
thickness of 0.010", it's graceful and powerful.
Like I said, you're worth it.
- "Super!!!!!!!!!, Your knife is great!!! It stays now in my cockpit permanently. All the best "

- "It really is an amazing blade on the high tech ropes."
"The story goes that one night we were having a dinner at our place after leg one in England and we were all hanging out talking about stuff and Sergio showed his Boye knife to Cedric. When Cedric saw it he fell in love so I told him the story of where it came from and he got so into it that I gave mine (Boye Knife) to him which was in my pocket as it always was."
"Boye Knives are very cool and I am definitely in need of another."

- "What great knives!!! Absolutely the best I've ever used. It would definitely have been helpful had I had these when making the World Record as the "oldest person to circumnavigate solo."
Yesterday I had to make about 15 cuts in some 1/2 inch yacht braid for new running rigging. It was absolutely amazing how cleanly and quickly your Boye knives zipped through that 1/2 inch line. Over the years I have worn out a half-dozen Swiss Army knives and none of them ever performed as good as your knives.
So I wanted to write a short note and tell you that if anyone has any questions about how practical and useful these knives are on a yacht, they can just give me a call. They are the ultimate in simplicity and yet totally effective. Personally, I can't see any serious long-range cruising sailor leaving port without his Boye knife. Congratulations on a super product."

- "I bought my first Boye folder a year ago and now the only place I go without it is to bed and on air-planes. I soon bought three more to give to friends who live on the sea and they love them. The fact is that these are the best marine knives I've ever found. They're strong, cut so long I'm constantly amazed and they show no sign of corrosion though they'll sit in my drysuit for days at a time.
At just 2.2 oz, they mark the end of a long search for the ideal sea kayakers knife."

- "Hello to the good people of Boye Knives.
I wanted to provide you with a little feedback following my own real world torture testing. You may not recall but I was perhaps one of the harder sells at the Pacific Sail boat show. I am the Vice President for Southern Ocean Ropes - A New Zealand based performance rope manufacturer.
I regularly have the task of assembling several dozen rope bundles for US customers, each being an assembly of 12 - 14 high tech fiber ropes and each requiring a total of about 30 cuts to keep it looking nice.
In the past I have resorted to a stainless steel filleting knife and a stone. Sawing my way through a 3 inch diameter bundle. I have also dulled numerous ceramic knives costing double what your retails for.
Your product not only has its original edge but continues to give me a very clean cut (and a very effortless cut) each and every time. It makes a tough job that much easier.
In my line of work, a sharp knife in your pocket is key. Customers do not want to see you hacking your way through a rope. And they do not want to look at a bundle of fuzz where the end of the rope should be.
I have a very critical eye for performance and want you to know that your product has exceeded my expectations. I will be recommending your knife to fellow torturers of the blade."

- "The purpose of writing this is to tell you a Boye knife story. Several days ago I was on my way home after visiting a friend who lives on a boat in the Kodiak harbor. As I walked past several hundred commercial fishing boats, I came across several crew members who were assigned to maintenance duties after their crabber had finished a season and returned to port.
Part of their job was to trim or replace any worn lines (ropes) that may have been damaged during the season. They were trying to cut a piece of Spectra - an abrasion resistant line used in the commercial fishing business. They had already turned the edges of a half dozen fillet knives. One man had a Cold Stell Tanto with a laminated blade - he was trying to pound the blade through with a halibut gaff handle - didn't make a mark. The other gentleman had a Spyderco Marniner (probably the most common folder on Kodiak Island). He sawed and sawed, and he did wear a few fibers, but even though his knife was fully serrated, the edge rolled over almost the full length of the blade.
Next, I pulled out my new Prophet Companion [Pointed -Tip, unserrated], they laughed. One of them made a comment about my "ladie's knife." It took a few strokes, but the Prophet went right through the Spectra. I spent the next ten minutes reciting your brochure.
Your knives have definitely passed the Kodiak test - thanks much for a fine product."
