The Fox® Model 103 is a hefty and rugged fixed blade knife that starts with 1/4" thick Niolox stainless at 57-58 Rc. for the blade and tang. It was designed by German knifemaker Reichart Markus to be at home in a wilderness camp, or as a personal every-day-carry. The broad drop point blade is coated gray to reduce reflectiveness and help resist rust. Niolox is an extremely hard tool steel that offers excellent edge retention. The large blade is aided by the ergonomic design and beefy size of the handles with thick Micarta scales. The black jute Micarta provides just enough texture for good grip. Multiple lanyard holes in the handle provide several carry and retention options. A 4-1/2" blade with jimping on the spine. Measures 9" overall. Weighs 8.6 oz. A black leather sheath is provided for horizontal carry.

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 qualified 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 remaining 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.
