The Fox® Fixed Blade TUR was designed by Jesper Voxnaes of Loegstrup, Denmark. If you are a knife nut, as I am, you will have seen Jesper's name associated with designs from other knife brands. He has been designing and making handmade knives for over twenty years. His knife designs, which rely heavily on his Nordic background, have been produced by several companies including Fox, CRKT®, Boker® and Spyderco®.

The TUR Fixed Blade is an elegant multi-purpose sheath knife with a 4-1⁄2" clip point blade of N690Co stainless at 58-60 Rc. The rugged black G-10 handle scales, over a full tang, are perfect for heavy use in outdoor conditions. Simple but very visually appealing. Measures 9" overall. Weighs 5.9 oz. Ships with a black leather sheath. Made in Maniago, the knife making center of Italy.

Fox Knives

FOX Coltellerie (FOX Cutlery) has been, and remains, an important part of the knife industry in Maniago. Still family owned, the company was established in 1977 by Oreste Frati. A highly quilified staff, CNC equipment of the latest generation a strong use of the newest quality knives possible. Fox knives demonstrate that a particular attention continues to be placed on creativity and design. The knife industry in Europe, as well as Japan, has always centered around one area in each country. In England, it was Sheffield; in Germany, Solingen; in Japan, Seki City; and in Italy it has been Maniago. In the recent past, we have seen a decline in quality knife production in England, Germany, the United States and most recently in Japan. In Sheffield, the industry has been gone for a long time. There are good companies making quality knives remeining in Germany, Japan and the U.S., but they are few. Many have succumbed to the pressure to make cheaper knives which has resulted in the move of a tremendous amount of knife production first to Taiwan and then to China. It is only Maniago, the art of metal working and knifemaking has been in practice since Medieval times.
