Although formally retired from his full-time role as head of heat treat for Buck Knives, Paul Bos continues to pursue the passion that captivated him as a 9th grader, many years ago.
The Blade Magazine Cutlery Hall of Fame© member still fills an advisory role for Buck, where his protege Paul Farner now directs the daily heat-treat operation at Buck’s Post Falls, Idaho, plant. In addition, Bos still is taking blades for treating from the many knifemakers he’s known and served for as many as 20 to 30 years, and longer.
“After all these years of friendship and working relationships, it’s satisfying to know that we can continue to provide the same specialized heat-treat service custom knifemakers have come to expect,” Bos said. “I’ve heard that my ‘retirement’ misled some, but Paul Bos Heat Treating is very much alive and well.”
