The LT Wright Gen 6 Larry Roberts Signature Edition Knife is the result of Larry Roberts requesting that LT Wright Knives make a version of their Genesis but with a 2" longer blade. As you may know, Larry was a contestant on Season 2 of Alone on The HISTORY® Network and was one of ten participants chosen to survive in the wilderness on their own. Larry chose to take the L.T. Wright Handcrafted Knives Genesis Scandi which he used daily on the island. Larry was the runner-up as he ended up staying on the island for 64 days.
This is what Larry had to say about the Genesis knife:
"I have tried many knives over the years on my quest for the "perfect knife" and after using the Genesis I believed I had found it. I then took my Genesis to Vancouver Island and relied on it for 64 days. I stropped my knife on my belt for my entire journey and it stayed razor sharp. I pried shellfish off rocks, got it wet in saltwater, batonned with it, and processed game with it. I tested this knife in a very harsh environment. The blade was easy to hone, didn't rust, is comfortable to use, and the blade profile lends itself well to many different tasks. The Genesis is the best bushcraft knife I have ever used, period." - Larry Roberts
After he returned from Vancouver Island, he asked LT Wright to make this version of the Genesis with the 2" longer blade which is now known as the Gen 6. This knife was designed for larger bushcraft tasks. It features the same broomstick handle, thumb scallops, and sharpened spine for striking a fire steel as the Genesis. The Larry Roberts Signature Edition Gen 6 has black Micarta handles with white liners. The steel stamp on the blade is a mouse to commemorate Larrys memorable battles with the rodents of Vancouver Island.
This knife is meant to celebrate his accomplishments. Larry exhibited his proficiency in and knowledge of survival skills as he carved spoons, made traps, fashioned a spear, and did countless other survival projects.
A black leather sheath with a dangler and fire steel loop is included. The sheath can also be used in the "high ride" position.
