CPM 3V steel provides superior lateral strength and edge holding compared to typical carbon steels. While not considered a true stainless steel, CPM3V is considered by some to be a "semi" stainless steel and does exhibit some stainless steel qualities while costing less than a true high-grade stainless steel.
The Forest Trail is a collaboration effort between theknifeconnection.net and L. T. Wright Handcrafted Knives and is offered exclusively by theknifeconnection.net. Each knife and the matching sheath are hand made in Ohio using the finest materials with careful attention given to each one during the production process.
Dale, The Knife Connections owner, had a goal to produce a heavy duty, medium-sized knife for bushcraft needs such as batoning, shelter building, small delimbing tasks etc. He also wanted this knife to be versatile enough for general field use such as large game field dressing, carcass break-down, and skinning. To that end, the blade features a long narrow point that is near the centerline of the knife. This is great for drilling tasks, and for more delicate work, but the blade also has enough belly for tasks such as slicing and skinning.
One of the major design goals was to have one of the most comfortable and versatile handles on the market. We believe that we have achieved this goal. The handle design provides for a firm, comfortable grip, in a variety of hold positions.
Whether you are breaking down a moose carcass in the Northwest Territories, building a survival shelter in the Blue Ridge Mountains or cutting netting on a military mission, the dependable Forest Trail knife will get the job done quickly, comfortably and efficiently.
This heavy duty knife features a Scandi ground drop point blade, a squared/sharpened spine for firesteel use and a large lanyard hole. The Bocote handle scales are attached with two ton epoxy and three brass corby bolts for years of dependable service.
A heavy duty, pouch style, leather dangler belt sheath with firesteel loop is included. The dangler can be removed so the knife can be carried in the "high ride" position if desired.
