After a little thinking and being around a lot of people that know nothing about knives I think the name “Gent’s Knives” is a bit misleading. They should be called “lady and Gent’s Knives”

From the BoseKnives Catalog a Gent’s Knife is this.



This is a 3" single (ATS-34) blade trapper, Green Bone, double bomb shield.

There are a lot of these in circulation. I heave heard stores that Tony would send out 10 of these at time to certain dealers. The price at that time was $175 and they would sell like hot cakes.

When I came on the scene they cost a little more, not much luckily. Reese was selling them for $50 less and I was able to purchase this little guy for $175.
Actually I think the “Gent’s Knife” has evolved into any knife (one or two blade) that’s 3” or under.

So a Gent’s Knife could be a Trapper, SwayBack,…CoffinJack…and the Peanut.

John,Thanks for the photo & taking us back in time.So I guess it is safe to say,back then,that you spoke of,there was no "drawing" at the Bose tables at shows ?
A much simpler time,indeed.

It was a much simpler time and no where near the money today.

Tony had a drawing when I went to my first Blade Show, maybe not the year before, I am not sure. Before his drawing his table was way in the back 40 of the show….I think he sold all his knives but he was not as well known as he is today. At one show he sold all his knives before they hit the table. A customer had driven a long way to buy a knife and was very disappointed that all were sold before the show was even started…so that is why the drawing was started.

My first drawing there were something like 25 to 35 cards. I think my name was drawn twice that first year.

Reese did not have a drawing then. He didn’t start until certain people(me) snagged some killer knives on the way down. Seems some people didn’t think that was fair.

Here is a shadow gent’s in the same pattern.

This little freebie in D-2 from Reese was made and carried by him to see how Micarta would hold up without stainless liners. I was at a show and one morning and he just handed it to me and asked me to field test it…..I did

It's amazing how well the miacrta holds up.
(the Micarta is even milled like he would stainless liners)

I had a 3" Reese shadow like that once.Like a DOPE I sold it.It was offered back & I passed,too,DOUBLE DOPE!
When offered the small Tony Bose Gents by a Gentleman,I acted on it,but I still miss the Reese ,too.
Thanks for the info & pics John

More to come and you are welcome
It's interesting to notice how thin or slim that first shadow was made. He may have made it wider, like the one in your pic, to use that washer on the pivot pin.

btw...the smallest Gents knife I have seen is 2 1/4"...swayback in pearl

It was light as air.
Tony told me,recently,that he made one like mine,but a two blader,a warny & clip,in that 2-5/8" size.Pearl scales
The way he said it,it was as if he himself was surprised he made it
He says its out there,and through the Bose Grapevine,I heard Oklahoma,possibly
That lil' stag is real nice John,

I am sure you will find it if you look long enough. It may come to you.

I have seen a few 3” Wharncliffe Trappers in pearl, just like the Gents, but two blades and very small, but not one in the peanut frame.

I am not surprised about him saying that…I think he likes making larger knives...but ya never know.

I have a question,and maybe it is not really a legit one.
I have heard that Tony refers to the 3-1/4" single swayback,like the one I posted,as a "Swayback Gent knife",and a two blade version,a "Swayback Jack",but I've only seen the 2 blade in the 3-5/8" size
Would a 2 blade 3-1/4" Swayback,be called a "Swayback Gents Jack"?
I'm not trying to be a wiseguy either.Any chance on a picture of such a knife?Thanks John,great thread.

I am a bit confused to tell you the truth about the whole thing myself.

Personally a Gents knife (to me) is just a slim line knife that is more on the delicate side…something I should be carrying to church right about now.

SwayBack’s come in all sizes. 2 1/2" 3 1/8" 3 1/2" & 3 5/8", Single & 2 Blades.
I have collected pics of a few over the past years if you would like to see.

Can't say for sure, but I think this is a 3 1/2"



Not to sure if a 3 1/4" is/was made....maybe a No.0 could be had??

I have only focused on slip joints now for the last couple of years and there seems to be a lot of wiggle room when it comes to what knives are called.

For instance, when a knife has 2 blades and they pivot on the same end it's called a "jack knife". But there are specialized jack knives like trappers, electricians, etc. Still, they are jack knives. Just a little confusing when you are trying to learn stuff

So, what the heck do you call a knife that was a jack knife with 2 blades and you take away a blade? It's not really a jack knife any more. I think that is why Tony calls a "swayback jack pattern" with a single blade a gents knife. That's the way I see it but what the hell do I know.

I have focused a little longer than a couple of years...and seen a few knives.

I think the best all time “everyday carry knife” is a 3 1/2” wharncliffe trapper...and I back this up with having had one in my pocket for maybe the last 10 years...but

I must be honest with you all...I have been thinking about the definition of a Gent’s Knife off and on today......to me there is only one ultimate “gent’s knife”....of course not all would agree with me....but the coolest small... three inch knife to me is a five blade stockman in remington bone...killer pimple stage would be killer too...I thought at one time ivory would be right up there...but I think the remington bone with a baby federal shield has what it takes. Truly a Gentlemen’s Knife.

If you have not seen one of these in person you have no idea of what I am talking about. All those blades crammed into that small little frame is crazy. If you like “lots going on” in a small package then you need to see one of these....in person and have it in your hand ....its has to be one of the coolest Bose knives out there...Just my two cents.

I'd like to see one John,I bet it is a real wonder.
I agree about the trapper,too.It is really kinda hard to beat that.I'm carrying a T Bose WT shadow for edc /work,and rotating a Reese WT with bone,on lighter duty days,lately moreso.
But you know us knifenuts,no matter how perfect the pattern,we're always looking around the corner.
The Bose knives are all truly fantastic,this is a great Forum,

Sweet Jesus. That's the best looking knife I've ever seen. I mean that. I'm humbled. Do you own that knife? If you do, my hat's off to you. Congratulations.

I'll work on taking better pictures to do justice to the Bose's knives. Your pictures are something else. Would you please post some more?

I'm writing Juan for John. You're John, I'm Juan. Just being silly.

I'm no match to John. I'm less than little leagues. But the knife on the att. has a neat story. To summarize it a great deal, I had to travel to the Atlanta show in 2001, to pick it up. Professor Tony says: You want it, you come get it in Atlanta. And meself goes gets it in Atlanta. So there I am in Atlanta, not overly interested in knives other than the ones from Wilfred, I walk around and around like everyone else does at the show, and end up at the table of this very nice man who is engraving knives. Stupid, ignorant me gets to watching the guy work, and we get to talking and I end up giving him the knife for engraving the bolsters. The engraving is fair, I guess, and it brings back great memories, but I love my Wilfred knives just the way they come from the bench. Anyways, thanks for reading.

Thank you, brother. We'll have to start an S&M group or something. I bring the girls and you bring the whips.

Ok, Mr. Juan... Here goes one from my humble stable. Please open att. I'm a dumb country boy and can't post pics otherwise. I took my meds now so I'm ready for some more of your pics. Let's keep the banjos playing.






Juan is this your EDC?
Ebony or Micarta?

EDC...? Me don't know what EDC mean. Anyways, yes, the knife (and the Pelican) is mine. Is the first knife Prof. Tony built for me. It's got Micarta scales. I had it in my pocket for years. Until recently, really, as now I carry the single blade trapper everywhere. I won't elaborate on the "everywhere".

EDC...every day carry

.....and that is a nice knife with all the patina on it...well as much Patina as Micarta can get.

I was given a Micarta 2 blade WT along time ago in a different Galaxy...I carried it for a year or two. I noticed that the Micarta actually got a polished look to it..... rubbing on keys and coins and such...very cool look to it.

So where you been carring that?....please elaborate

Well, that little knife has been in my right front pocket for several years. I've used it for anything and everything including skinning pecari (a small tropical boar like pig), deer, ducks...

It's the first knife that Mr. Bose made for me. I had asked an old friend, Bill Keeton, to make a folding knife for me. Bill makes wonderful fixed blade knives and he's made a few for me, all hunting knives. Folders are not Bill's specialty so, being the good friend he is he told me to contact his friend Tony Bose.

I wanted a do it all little knife to keep in my pocket. Before then, I only had fixed blade knives which I used for hunting, and the odd Buck folder. Thus, I ordered Micarta scales. Of course, now I wish I had ordered stag scales for that baby.

Anyhow, that little knife is a champ and I wouldn't get rid of it for half of Fort Knox.
