Two streamers in the wilderness? Knives instead of controllers? Starving instead of Happy Slice Pizza? Sounds absurd, but it will come true. Trymacs (29) from Hamburg and Rumathra (27) from Bonn will compete together as a team in the upcoming season of 7 vs. Wild and face the 14-day adventure in the wilderness of Canada. The two heavyweights from the German streaming/gaming scene together have over 4 million followers on Twitch (Trymacs 3.4 million, Rumathra 0.7 million) and also have a strong presence on YouTube and Instagram. As part of the intensive preparation for this borderline experience, the choice of the right equipment - especially because all items have to be stored together in a 1L Nalgene bottle - played an elementary role for the two. Together with Rumathra, who visited us several times in our Solingen workshop, we developed and built our own knife, which is perfectly adapted to the requirements and conditions of the upcoming outdoor adventure. The basis for the new development is the outdoor and bushcraft knife Boker Plus Vigtig designed by Dave Wenger, which due to its dimensions (total length: 19.7 cm; blade thickness: 4 mm) not only fitted perfectly into the bottle but is also designed for the toughest demands. The blade steel chosen was Magnacut, which, unlike the tool steels usually used, was specially developed for knife making. This steel, which has been hailed as a "miracle steel", has succeeded in achieving a very fine structure and thus high toughness and shock load tolerance despite its high chromium content of 10.7% and impressive hardenability of over 62-63 HRC. In combination with the True-Scandi grind, the blade in the stonewash finish defies every challenge that arises, from fine cutting and carving tasks for camp construction and firewood preparation to batoning and chopping, to game handling. To make the most of the space in the Nalgene bottle, the two handle scales made of green canvas micarta have been kept slightly flatter than in the original version and ensure a perfect grip even when wet. A special highlight can be found inside the handle. Instead of hollow studs, the two large screws can be easily removed with the help of a coin, revealing an ample compartment with a depth of 14 mm compared to the outer dimensions of the handle, where tweezers, tinder, charcoal tablets, a fishing kit and safety pins, for example, can be easily accommodated. Even as a skeletonized knife without handle scales, the Boker Vigtig vs. Wild, made entirely in Solingen, cuts a fine figure and underlines the versatility of the special model. The delivery scope is rounded off by a compact Kydex sheath in black with a clip.
