L.T. Wright Overland Machete 12.25" 1075 Fixed Blade, Python Micarta, Leather Sheath
LTWOLMCM21L: Overland Machete, Python Micarta
L.T. Wright Handcrafted Knives
More than just a machete, the LTWK Overland Machete is an all-around survival tool, capable of standing in as a hatchet and small knife as well, making it a true one-tool-option for bushcraft and survival.
Made by hand in the USA, this handy tool features a spear point 1075 carbon steel blade. It is thin enough for clearing brush, but strong enough to split wood or chop through branches too. Thanks to the roomy handles with integrated thumb scallops it is also easy to choke for more neutral balance, enabling fine woodwork such as making traps or feather sticks. Thanks to an inline point you can even use the blade for drilling tasks with ease, and the broad point means you can use it as a shovel in an emergency.
Multiple lanyard holes in the handle allow for secure use, and you could even lash it to a pole to increase your reach if you needed. The rear lanyard hole comes equipped with shock cord for security during use as well as for extra retention in the sheath when looped over a security hook on the sheath. The leather sheath itself, made in the USA by JRE Industries, features dual belt loops and plenty of rivets for extra lashing options.
Like all L.T. Wright Knives, the GNS features a 90-degree spine for striking a fire steel. It also features comfortable contoured handles finished by hand to remove any hotspots. They are secured to the tang with a combination of Loveless-style bolts and high-strength epoxy for a lifetime of durability.

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.
Micarta is a compressed layered composite sealed within a thermosetting plastic which creates a strong, attractive material that is impervious to water.
