Very quickly in 2006, different equipment for outdoor purposes was proposed.A firesteel, flask, "survival" pouch and belt saw the light and developed with sound experience in the field. The same preoccupation for comfort, quality in the choice of leather and finishes were to prompt our developments.
February 2007 saw the birth of a new knife for more every-day use: the "Baby Wild".
Very like its big brother, yet slightly lighter and shorter to be fully suited to small hikes, snacking, hunting, etc.
November 2007, the WILD TECH made its appearance.Designed for hiking, climbing, mountain biking, water and outdoor sports, it boasts being sturdy and light in weight thanks to a POM (PolyOxyMethylene) sheath.
December 2008, launch of the Wild Tactic model making use of the Wildsteer single-piece forged blade with Kraton handle and a new patented wire-cutter function.
January 2009, we started to propose a highly versatile backpack for hunters to carry and protect a recurve or compound bow or a rifle.Made by Markhor Hunting guaranteeing second-to-none quality.
May 2009, an important turning point is reached when Edouard de Buyer joined the company on a full-time basis.
This was to mark the start of significant work with certain regiments aimed at expanding the tactical range.
January 2010, the first folding Wildsteer was revealed for the first time at the Shot Show in Las Vegas:the Wild 79 knife
boasting a solid wooden handle, it stands out thanks to its sober lines and excellent grip, available in 6 species of wood.
February 2011, presentation of a new knife specially designed on demand for hunters: the X Wild
September 2011, the idea of a survival kit stemmed from discussions with a soldier from the 1st parachute chasseur regiment, hence the birth of: the Tech Neck.It is made up of a robust blade, a compass, a firesteel, sharpener, light and mirror for signalling:the minimum vital required…
March 2012 at the IWA show in Nuremberg, two new knives went on show. The TX Wild making use of the X Wild blade with a paracord handle and a black blade or with a formidable saw on top.An excellent bushcraft knife.And the WX folding knife with completely innovative, patented double locking system to have a guard and use the Wildsteer accessories (wire-cutters, extractor, etc)
