L.T. Wright Bushcrafter HC 3.95" 1075 Fixed Blade Knife, Rustic Brown Canvas Micarta, Leather Sheath
LTWBCHCM08: Bushcrafter HC, Rustic Brown Micarta
L.T. Wright Handcrafted Knives
It isn't often that you can find a full-sized American handmade knife for around $100, but that is exactly what you get with the LTWK Bushcrafter HC. Through the use of select materials, this classic Tim Stetzer design is now the perfect way to get a handmade knife on your hip today and it still has the capabilities (and lifetime warranty) to tackle any adventure.
The versatile spear point blade is a bushcraft classic. With a length just under 4-inches, it lends itself well to nearly any task, from woodcarving to skinning to drilling. The edge itself is convexed and is finished by expert sharpeners. This adds durability to the edge and helps it perform well for woodworking, skinning, food prep, and slicing, while the spine of the blade features a crisp, 90-degree angle for scraping or striking a ferro rod, also known as a firesteel.
The convex grind on the HC is the perfect choice for this thinner knife blade. It is an excellent compromise between strength and slicing capability. Likewise, the choice of 1075 carbon steel is preferred over 1095 due to the increase in toughness, meaning the blade can be thinner and cut more efficiently without sacrificing strength. To help you care for the blade, LTWK has applied a mottled patina to the steel which can protect the blade from more damaging rust, although you will still need to oil and take care of it properly.
The comfortable handle on the Bushcrafter HC is shaped by hand to remove any hot-spots and provide hours of comfort under hard use. With a broomstick-style handle, this is a knife that will fit just about anyone. The single finger cutout functions as a rudimentary finger guard and helps index the knife in the hand very well. The scales are triple riveted to the tang with Loveless-style "Fisheye" bolts in addition to high-strength epoxy, granting durability that will last a lifetime.
The knife would not be complete without a sheath, and the included JRE Industries leather sheath makes it easy to carry the Bushcrafter HC. Retention is good, and there is a ⅜" diameter leather loop on the side to facilitate easy carry of a firesteel. Additional rivets allow versatile lashing options. The sheath can be used with the included dangler attachment for drop leg carry. If you prefer your knife to carry higher on the belt, you can remove the dangler, or simply fold it underneath and out of the way.

Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to Kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
