L.T. Wright Knives has developed an Overland Machete. The Overland Machete was designed to fill the needs of overlanders and outdoors people who needed a trail tool that is quick to deploy and easy to use. The Overland Machete is also lightweight and very durable. This will help you make quick work of all tasks and easily go back into the truck or on your hip, ready for its next mission. Many different terrain types were considered and the machetes were built with those in mind. It will gladly devour grass, vines, branches, small trees, and still strike a fire steel to light the fire back at base camp.
This machete features American made 1075 high carbon steel with our exclusive 2-stage patina. The benefits of that are ease of field sharpening and help in the rust prevention of the steel. We also use either Micarta or G10 scales that are not only bolted to the steel, but also use a 2-ton marine grade epoxy that seals the scales to it, sealing the joint from ingress of any liquids.
Another great feature to the Overland Machete is the custom molded, quick release Kydex sheath. With a break away front loading sheath, it not only makes for a quick deployment of the tool but, also less chance for water, grass, and mud to be stuck down inside a traditional sheath. The Kydex can also be easily hosed out after your adventures (just be sure to let it and the machete dry completely before stowage). It also includes a Bungee Lanyard that acts as a lock for the sheath and a hand loop.
So on your next adventure, whether to the backyard for some quick yard work, or clearing a trail for your old Land Rover through the Darien Gap, be sure you have an LTWK Overland Machete with you. You're gonna need it!
