We have a Big Drop Coming up after the Pre-orders ship out!
Design by: John Rusk
The Thick Boy WharnCleaver is my second folding knife design. Like the Nymble I wanted the knife to be fun to own, unique, and have that same near custom spark to it. The Thick Boy is a mid sized beast of a knife. The name refers to the knife being a Thick Chunky Boy in the closed position. A bit overbuilt, and a tad embellished in a way, but that is what makes it so much fun. With a tall Flat grind, it will be a useful tool when needed. Our Boy is unique and distinct style you can personalize with several inlay options. The options include Micarta, G10, Brass, & Copper with more to come for future productions. The Thick boy will be a fun EDC option with amazing fidgety fall shut action, and eye catching appeal.
