    I thought L.T. Wright Knives deserved its own page for pictures and comments as it is one of my favorite manufacturers.
    Also, since it has been over two years since the Blind Horse split, I wanted to have something distinctive for LTWK fans.
    So post pictures of your knives and include some notes as to what you like or don't like about them so that others can benefit from your experience.

    I will open with probably their most popular model, the Genesis. I love the thumb scallops and the 90 degree spine! It makes this a very classic and functional tool. However, this model also taught me that I do not like broomstick handled knives as much as contoured handles. There is a lot to like about this knife, but I like others more.

    The only LT Wright I have is a Bushcrater HC. Very good deal for the money! Hard to beat the leather sheath for $30 also. Here it is on a recent trip with a TOPS MSK2.5. This was the first convex edged knife I've had. I started making shavings on this trip with it and didn't care for it. I wound up finishing them with the TOPS. I'm too used to a scandi edge. I put a scandi edge on the HC and it works much better for me now.

    I got this one custom made by LTWK using a Blind Horse blank the already had. It's based on a PLSK 1 but slightly different.

    A little heavy for the size, so there isn't Mora-like agility, but I love the knife. The taper of its scales renders the sheath useless for retention after it limbers up. I added a Kydex insert to mine, which has worked well–I just wet-formed the sheath around the Kydex.

    This Rogue River was my favorite knife for a while and probably ties my Ambush Tundra for current favorite. The handle locks my hand into place but allows for very comfortable handling in all sorts of knife grips. It is similar to a full flat GNS with thumb scallops, but I like the feel and performance of the Rogue River better. I have used it to clean rabbit, feathered wood, and start a fire, and it has been great at all of it. My only complaint, is that the snakeskin micarta appears to have shrunk slightly. The pins and tang feel raised compared to the micarta. This is my only LTWK to have done this (and it sucks because this is my favorite), but the handle is definitely not as smooth today as when I got it a year ago. Even with that though, I love this knife!

    I've owned an LT Wright Genesis in FFG. I was not particularly impressed with the handle ergonomics nor the level of sharpness that I was able to achieve. For these reasons I decided to sell it following several weeks of fairly regular usage both in the field and in the kitchen.

    I do, however, thoroughly enjoy and admire the effort that is consistently devoted into product production at LT Wright Knives. Their transparency with consumers is matched by few and arguably rivaled by none. I would encourage those potentially interested in learning more about LT Wright and his company to do so by visiting their home pages/ interfaces on any of several social media outlets; their YouTube channel for example.

    The Genesis is to me one of the best knives I've ever used; feels great in the hand, In scandi; this knife really bites into the wood,also great for notching for trap's trigger stick; does fine carving, feather sticking, making bow drill sets, bowls ,spoons, and the A2 steel takes and holds a razor sharp edge,and I can just beat the hell out of it with no worries

    My favorite knives. I have two Genesis knives (both scandi) and two GNSs (one scandi, one saber grind). Amazing quality, great sheaths, sharp spines. None arrived dull.

    Yes I did design it from scratch. I am a member of the Pout House and last year during the month of July they allowed us to send in anything we could dream up it just had to be an exact drawing to scale with correct dimensions. So I took my two favorite knives the Genesis and GNS and combined them with some influences from the Woodlore and the sizing of the PLSK1. Drew it and they used that drawing to make the blank.
    The knife is 10.25" OA
    Blade is 5.25 with a true 5" cutting edge
    5/32" thickness
    Handle is 5"
    Steel is A2
    Scales are from BeyondWoodProducts and is called Shokwood. A burl cast in colored resin
    with black and forest green liners
    I has thumb scallops too.
    I call it The Beardlore haha

    Here is a picture of my Next Gen and my featherstick container. The knife is a scaled down Genesis that is really handy but small enough to edc. I wish it had the mountain finish to the scales like Monk938's, but I like mine just fine. I most like the thumb scallops, but the blade geometry and even the handle size it great. This is the first broomstick handle that I have liked, but I probably would not carve with this for hours on end either.

    I know this post is from a year ago but what's the top knife in this pic? Is it a production knife? Thanks.

    Also, here's one of mine, an A2/Micarta Boat Tail Scandi.

    I just ordered my first LT Wright knife at KnivesShipFree.com. I have been looking at them for quite a while, and I finally pulled the plug.

    I will post pics when I get it in. I'm super excited, this will be my first high end bushcraft knife. Also my first order with KnivesShipFree.com. I got a shipping notice and tracking number, within an hour of ordering.:dblthumb:

    Looking forward to using it this next year.

    I sure wish LT would do custom orders so I would get different scales.

    Then again, maybe it is helping me to save a lot of money!

    Beautiful knives, everyone.
    Without question the sheaths from LTW are hands down my favorite style. Perfection.

    This is my GNS. The picture is from a fire I had back in October. I really wanted to dislike the GNS as I was a huge Adventure Sworn fan (and still am), but the knife just begged to be used. It ain't that pretty, but it sure gets the job done and, man, is it comfortable. It has since found a permanent place in my kit and is one of my favorite pieces of gear.

    Just got this Jessmuk with Infidel Crafted sheath in a GAW the other day ! Haven't had much of a chance to put it through m any paces yet. I have been carryin it daily, and used it and the ferro rod to prep, and start a fire, some kitchen use, and light battoning, and feathersticks as well.

    This is an awesome knife !!! Full review to come.

    She sure is pretty !!! :5: Thanks to @crewhead05 for the fantastic GAW !!!

    Here are some glamor shots before any use. :dblthumb:

    I used to own a saber GNS. I traded it off a while back for a saber ground knife that I preferred. This weekend, I acquired another GNS, but this time in scandi. I love it. This one is staying.

    So,
    I got my knife in. I haven't used it much but...

    THIS MAY BE THE LAST BUSHCRAFT KNIFE I BUY! The handle fits my hand great, I love the shape of the blade, and the weight of it.

    I did give it a coat of coconut oil and bees wax treatment.

    My frontier trapper with badger claw sheath. It's 01 steel and saber found. This is my edc and my favourite fixed blade. It's small but is easy to get scary sharp and hold a fantastic edge
