The burlier, more aggressive big brother to Lib Tech's popular Box Scratcher, the Box Knife is back for a second season with a consecutive Good Wood accolade to match. The board of choice for Ted Borland, the Box Knife maintains the jib-focused personality of the Scratcher, but with added pop, stability and precision thanks to Mervin's C3, camber-dominant profile. Testers praised the board for its versatility on jumps and features of all sizes, and although some agreed that its powerful personality didn't allow for the easiest press in the test, it did still prove to be a great all-terrain freestyle deck that is more than capable of performing in any and all conditions. One impressed tester added, "I felt comfortable with riding this board on the whole mountain. It's very stable, pretty powerful, held an edge thanks to Mervin's Magne-Traction, and locked into rails with precision and ease." Expect to get much more than just a knife out of this true multi-tool.

Good Wood 2019 presented by evo.com.

Buying a new snowboard shouldn't be an arduous task. But with hundreds of options to choose from, narrowing down options can be an overwhelming process. The internal struggle boils down to the reality that these things aren't cheap. With that in mind, Good Wood's intent has always been to best serve you in your quest to purchase the deck most deserving of your money. This season, our diverse crew of testers returned to the steeps of Snowbird, Utah for the all-mountain category and the progressive features of Carinthia at Mount Snow, Vermont for the park division. In the end, we came back with a collection of boards that are worthy of TransWorld's esteemed Good Wood stamp of approval.

How The Boards Are Scored

Shortly after ripping laps on each model, our testers score the board based on a comprehensive set of characteristics that include edgehold, pop, swingweight, turn initiation, stability, and flex. The scorecards for the park and all-mountain categories of the test each have unique and specific criteria designed to pinpoint the strengths and weakness of a snowboard in the setting respective to its category. Beyond the quantifiable scoring, we also ask testers to comments on each facet of the board’s performance. These notes we refer to extensively when writing each review. Dive into the results and see what performed for our testers, then find what will work for you.
