A Must Have

During our adventure last fall, Neil and I had the opportunity to test out knives from L.T. Wright Handcrafted Knives. Neil was really excited to be working with them, but I never understood people's fascination with knives. That all changed after the month long journey. 

We were given a personal knife each. Neil picked the Bushcrafter, and myself the Camp Muck. Wow, using this knife totally changed my outlook on a good quality knife. I don't leave home without my knife now. 


The blades are a superior quality made from a high carbon steel. Every knife they make is made by hand with attention to detail. The handles are so comfortable in my hand and I don't feel awkward using it like I do with other knives. 




Neil's go to knife was the Machete. He beat his to death using it for everything from chopping wood to clearing trails, even a fire poker. It held up amazingly and is still as sharp as when we first got it. 





Another favorite of mine is the camp kitchen set of knives. There are four of them in this cool holder made by Blue Ridge Overland Gear. My go to knife is the paring knife. Againm very comfortable in my hand with a blade that is solid. 

We were lucky enough to be able to see, first hand, the knives being made and the knife artisans who take pride in their product. Check out our tour video, one of our first stops on our Adams Xtreme Off Road Adventure. 



I highly recommend getting one of these knives if you plan on doing any offroading or overlanding.
