Boye has been handcrafting knives in the USA since. He is recognized as one of the major influences in modern custom knife making. David's breakthrough discovery of cast dendritic metallurgy in the early'80's revolutionized traditional blade making and set new cutting records. In the late'90's, he began working exclusively with.
Because of its superior cutting abilities and corrosion resistance. The Boye Dendritic Cobalt (BDC) Difference: A New Kind of Blade. Boye Dendritic Cobalt is a super-performing, investment cast, non-rusting cobalt alloy.It excels on tough fibers like hi-tech rigging line, deck and anchor line, as well as netting. Because it is not a steel, it cuts aggressively and keeps cutting, is completely impervious to seawater corrosion, and is non-magnetic. Boye Knives are made differently than other knives.
Each Boye blade starts out as a wax model, and a hard porcelain shell is built up around it. Molten Cobalt Alloy 6 is poured into the shell, melting out the wax (lost wax), and taking the shape of a blade.As the metal cools, a dense network of fully bonded, hard carbide crystals grows throughout the blade in. Each blade has its own one-of-a-kind carbide crystal formations, so no two blades are alike. Carbide Crystals and the Dendritic Cutting Effect. The cutting edge of each Boye knife has micro-serrations that are produced by the alternation of the hard carbide crystals and the softer surrounding cobalt matrix. The carbide crystals function like rebar, helping the blade maintain its shape and edge integrity over time, and are extremely wear resistant. They are the reason why Boye blades have such an amazing ability to cut long, deep, fast, and clean through hundreds of cuts of tough line. Sharpening exposes a fresh row of carbide micro-serrations ready to go to work. A microscopic picture of a Boye knife blade showing dendritic carbide crystals at 200X magnification. The white areas are the carbides, bonded to the cobalt matrix. Extreme Edge Holding and No Rust. Denser and stronger than any steel, cuts phenomenally better and longer. Unbroken, fully bonded carbide crystals throughout the metallurgy with carbide teeth along the cutting edge. Never, ever rusts in seawater.
