In the world of EDC, outdoor adventures, and survival situations, a fixed blade knife carries a lot of advantages over its folding counterpart. Since they don’t have any moving parts, the risk of mechanical failure is minimized, making them the knife of choice for outdoor enthusiasts, hunters, and first responders who need a robust, easy-to-maintain, and reliable tool for heavy-duty tasks. Enter The Bohr, Glow Rhino’s newest tritium-illuminated fixed blade knife designed to stand up to the most rigorous demands.

The Bohr knife pays homage to Niels Bohr, a Danish Nobel Prize-winning nuclear physicist. Just as Bohr’s discoveries unraveled the complexities of atomic structure and quantum mechanics, The Bohr reflects a commitment to excellence and a nod to the relentless pursuit of perfection. This knife aims to simplify and enhance your cutting tasks, whether you’re out in the wild or tackling daily chores.

The Bohr’s 3.75” blade is crafted from DC-53 steel, which is meant to be an upgrade to the more commonly used D2 steel. It features higher hardness, twice the toughness, and substantially higher fatigue strength than D2 steel, ensuring that you don’t lose your edge even in demanding conditions. The blade features a black PVD coating, adding an extra layer of protection against corrosion and wear while giving it a sleek, tactical appearance.

The straight-back blade design offers versatility for a variety of tasks, from ferro rod striking to precision slicing and cutting. Whether you’re preparing food, starting a fire, building shelter, or engaging in intricate work, The Bohr’s blade is designed to deliver consistent performance.

The handle of The Bohr is crafted from G-10, a high-pressure fiberglass laminate known for its durability and resistance to moisture. This material ensures a secure grip even in wet conditions, making it an ideal choice for outdoor and survival situations. The handle is available in two striking colors: all black for a classic, understated look, and blaze orange for enhanced visibility in the field.

Ergonomics plays a crucial role in the design of The Bohr’s handle. Its thoughtfully contoured shape fits comfortably in a full-handed grip, reducing fatigue during extended use. The handle thickness of 0.53″ strikes a balance between enclosing the blade’s tang and a comfortable grip that allows ease of use and carry. Additionally, the lanyard hole and jimping on the spine provide added functionality and control.

One of The Bohr’s standout features—and Glow Rhino’s signature accessory—is its tritium-illuminated backspacer. Tritium is a self-luminous isotope that doesn’t require an external power source, ensuring visibility in low-light conditions. The Bohr’s XXL tritium backspacer, measuring 2x12mm, is visible on three sides, allowing you to locate your knife effortlessly in the dark. This unique feature sets The Bohr apart, offering a practical advantage for nighttime use and emergencies.

With an overall length of 8.1” and weighing in at a light 5.1 oz, The Bohr’s strikes a balance between portability and functionality, making it easy to carry while still offering the robustness needed for demanding tasks. It also comes with a custom Kydex sheath with a universal belt clip to ensure ease of access both for EDC and in the field.

Whether you’re venturing into the wilderness, preparing for survival scenarios, or simply looking for a dependable EDC tool, The Bohr knife is a statement of quality, innovation, and reliability. Its high-quality materials, ergonomic design, and unique tritium illumination make it a versatile and indispensable companion.
