When the ground trembles, you know it's coming. The Thero everyday carry may be supremely thin and lightweight but it's got the bite of a prehistoric carnivore. A skeletal handle looks like an ancient T. rex and will help maintain a solid grip when up against everything from a greasy gasket to a wooly mammoth.
TJ Schwarz is known for high aesthetics that don't budge on utility. Designed in his Boise, Idaho shop, the Thero is definitive proof. Named after a group of "beast-footed" dinosaurs called theropods, this everyday carry has the look of a museum relic and an aggressive, lightweight design that's all 21st century.
The high-carbon, stainless steel modified sheepsfoot blade features a black oxide finish that's tough against wear and rust. It's balanced by a glass-reinforced nylon handle with a carbon fiber underlay for aesthetic and toughness. The blade opens quickly with either a flipper or a thumb hole and is held solidly in place with a locking liner.
An ancient artifact meets the future in the Thero.
