    No doubt those puukko style blades carve wood like no other. Not big on exposed tang pommels, but would like to see the functionality foreseen by the designer. Knowing LT wright, I bet it will have a 90 degree spine that will spoke shave wood, scrape bark, and scrape a ferro rod like nobody's business. Good looking knife....somewhat reminds me of the Lagom bush knife, also built by LT Wright. My interest is certainly peaked by this design....!!

    They seem like great folks to deal with.

    I have had nothing but positive experiences with L.T. and Scott.

    The Serechete is getting a make over, the kit knife is getting work done, and a new quirky offering.

    Blade shape is excellent, although its hard to tell, it seems to have a continuous curve, like a Skookum. Is there any contour to the handle? The blade reminds me of the lagom bushtool. Great knife. LT makes amazing blades. I'm fond t of the combination handle material and color that comes on the native SURVIVAL knife.

    Throw us a feather stick at least,

    The Caucasian Ovcharka of BCUSA?


    Probably, Natural or Green. Although Green & Black and Python has some merit.

    Black bolster with natural handle would look very nice, just saying.


    Now back to your regularly scheduled programming!

    I have Written Verification of a Signal Sack and a BCUSA Hat. Should arrive today.

    The rest is just Pie in the Sky!

    These could end up in some Postal Guy's Basement. Next to my Christmas Card from 1964.

    So let's just hope these flow smoothly through the system.

    Some Opossum Facts to kill the time.

    While they aren't overly pretty, at least not in the U. S.
    Oz possums are quite cute.

    They eat ticks for a living, and are naturally immune to rabies.

    This last year I've heard about them eating ticks. So, no more possum killing here. They may be immune to rabies. But, another not so well known fact is they're not immune to Arby's. Of course who can blame them.

    The Bushcraft USA Knife is made by LT Wright for us. The steel is 1/8" O-1, which is my personal favorite. The grind is Scandinavian. The blade length is 3.75" with a overall length of 8.25" including the Micarta handle and exposed tang. The spine of the knife is ground to 90 degrees for striking a firesteel and smoothing wood. A brown leather dangler sheath with fire steel loop is included. Handle options include OD Green, Natural Canvas, and Black. These will be available in small batches.

    Those knives are pimp!

    ...I know, I know, I grew up in the 90s and I’ve waited so long to use that word again but those knives really are sweet! The size is awesome too, it’s not some overly huge monstrosity.

    Are these made on a limited basis or they going to be a regular item on the website?

    We are trying to offer up different knives and gear all the time. If people like these enough then we might make them a regular item.
