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™.
TJ was destined to be a car designer. In high school he discovered his uncanny ability to draw cars—in fact, he was so good at it that by the time he was in college, he was accepting commissions from classic car owners. Just as his career was starting down the automotive path, his good friend Bill Koenig of Koenig Knives intervened and everything shifted. Once he got a taste of knife design, he never looked back. So when he says, “engineered for performance,” he means it.
