The Genesis by L.T. Wright is a knife steeped in history. This was the model that launched L.T. Wright Handcrafted Knives as a company and is inspired by the knife carried by Horace Kephart, the forefather of American Woodcraft. This nearly twelve-inch overall flat-ground bush knife really likes to work and its wider blade can make all the difference.
The versatile spear point blade is a bushcraft classic and lends itself well to nearly any task, from woodcarving to skinning to drilling. Each edge is finished by hand by expert sharpeners, and the spine of the blade features a crisp, 90-degree angle for scraping or striking a ferro rod, also known as a firesteel.
The comfortable handle on the Gen3is 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. Thumb scallops further enhance the grip with a natural place for pinch holds. The scales are triple riveted to the tang with brass pins in addition to high-strength marine-grade 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 Genesis. Retention is good, and there is a 3/8” 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.
