    It looks like a great little knife. How do you like a 3” blade? Personally I think it’s a bit short for Bushcraft. I prefer the genesis with the longer blade. It’s yiur choice.

    Handle design, ergonomics and fit and finish are all top notch. I think you will be very happy with it.

    Fine knife! I enjoy mine. Mine is in D2, didn't know they made them in A2. Good choice for a fixed EDC blade IMO.

    ^^^^ That looks like it has a nice, hand-filling handle. ??

    I can't say yet. But I have one that should be here today or tomorrow.

    3V steel and Mountain Micarta.

    I post up next week after I have had some time to play.

    It sure is! The broomstick handle is very comfortable for me.

    Once you put a slicy grind on it, it's a fine blade. Had one in 3V for a bit and like the grip and size of it. I found the grip on mine too round as it was fatter than the grip on my Genesis . Sold it eventually, but glad I got a chance to do some work with one.

    I said I'd report back!

    Too early in the game to make bold statements. But so far, I like it. Very cool size.

    I have a Next Gen as well as a Genesis. The NG is a great size for general use and the full flat grind is better than I thought. It is comfortable in the hand as long as I'm not really torquing/hacking away. The D2 has held a good edge.

    It's probably my favorite knife. It's my go to camping and hiking knife when I'm not going to be doing a lot of bushcrafting. The spine came so sharp I've cut my finger on it.

    That's a fact......every Lt Wright knife I own came with super sharp 90° spine. They shred wood and ferro rods efficiently including flesh if you ain't careful!

    Yes they are sharp. Cut my index finger open on the spine of my Next gen yesterday.
