DescriptionBushcrafter Mark II
The Bushcrafter Mark II is a larger version of the ever popular L T Wright Handcrafted Knives Bushcrafter knife. It is capable of handling most any medium to large outdoor task. This knife features a Scandi Grind which provides a lot of steel in the blade making it ideal for extra hard use. The thing that is different about a Scandi ground knife is that the long flat grind on either side runs straight to the edge. There is no small edge bevel as the two long grinds on each side meet at the edge. The result is that the edge is in the exact same plane as either of the long grinds. The blade can function very similarly to a wood chisel because of this and can shave wood at low angles with ease. It's fairly easy to sharpen a scandi grind and maintaining an angle is no more complicated than laying the knife blade angle flat on the stone. When working with wood, getting the knife to bite at a consistent shallow angle is done the same way.
The Bushcrafter Mark II is a great knife for any type of outdoor use from large game carcass breakdown to shelter building to batoning wood. Even though it is a large-sized knife, it carries well. It is a classic outdoor style knife that has proved its worth over the years.
This fine knife features A2 tool steel which has proven itself over the years as one of the best carbon steels available. A2 tool steel will take a very keen edge, is abrasive resistant and tough which makes this an excellent knife for aggressive users. A2 steel is harder than some other carbon steels and will hold an edge longer. It also has 5% chromium added making it somewhat less susceptible to rusting compared to some other carbon steels.
The Bushcrafter Mark II measures 9 5/8 inches overall and features a 4 7/8 inch cutting edge. The blade thickness is 5/32 of an inch and it weighs 8.8 ounces. The blade width from spine to cutting edge is 1 5/16 inches. The handle scales are black and green canvas micarta with a matte finish.

About A2 Carbon Steel
AISI A2 is a carbon steel with the addition of 5% chromium and 1.1% molybdenum, allowing it to quench in still air (A for Air.) While stainless amounts of chromium (12% or more) can make tool steel gummy and hard to sharpen, the modest amount of chromium in A2 improves its toughness and abrasion resistance, but imparts only a slight measure of corrosion resistance (like all carbon steels, it will rust and appropriate preventative care must be taken.) During heat treatment the chromium addition combines with some of the carbon in the alloy to form chromium carbides: tough, hard particles dispersed through the steel. These carbides are the primary contributors to A2's celebrated edge retention. A2 is one of the steels that responds well to cryogenic treatment. This extreme cold treatment (-320 degrees F) essentially finishes the original quench, increasing the Steel's toughness without any decrease in hardness. You get increased wear resistance without any increase in brittleness so a cryogenically treated blade will hold its edge longer. You can keep working instead of sharpening. A2 is a great steel that offers a real improvement in edge retention over some of the simpler carbon steels.
