The Texas Tooth Pick Was Common In 19th-Century Texas. Today, Boker Has Taken This Historic Blade And Given It A Modern Revival.
The Texas Tooth Pick was used by people of all types in Texas during the 19th century. Everyone from farmers and fishermen to lawmen and outlaws, the Texas Tooth Pick was a common knife due to its versatility. And now, the team at Boker USA is reviving this Lone Star classic and giving it a modern look at a flipper.
The VG-10 blade stays in place thanks to a linerlock and, as its name suggests, is narrow like a toothpick. The stonewash finish gives it a clean look, and the curved, textured G10 handle scales provide excellent grip.
Thanks to its narrow design, the piece is incredibly light. At just 1.52 ounces, there are many competing models out there where the blade itself weighs more. Thanks to the quality of its construction, this new Texas Tooth Pick is just as dynamic as the original but far more durable.
