Gen 5, A2 Scandi Grind, Natural Micarta
L.T. Wright Handcrafted Knives
Pictured are all three colors available. Only one knife is included in the purchase price.
The original 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. The Kephart knife was available in four and five-inch lengths, so now the Gen 5 joins the lineup with a longer blade than the Genesis to tackle even bigger obstacles.
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 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 Scandi grind on this knife is a bushcrafter’s best friend, capable of any task but excelling at wood carving. The bevel is ground by hand and then buffed to a high finish for sharpness and durability. These knives are unequaled when it comes to making feathersticks or carving notches.
The comfortable handle on the Genesis 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. Thumb scallops further enhance the grip with a natural place for pinch holds. 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 Gen 5. 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.
