The LT Wright Knives Small Northern Hunter is one fantastic knife! While it is similar in design to the popular Canadian Belt knife, it is somewhat different and certainly stands on its own merits. Those who go afield and especially hunters will find this knife to be a superb performer as we can attest to after using it ourselves. The blade design is nothing short of genius as it works great for wild game preparation, batoning kindling and other utility uses. While the handle shape looks simple, it is very practical in design and function. The Small Northern Hunter is made from AEB-L Stainless Steel which is gaining quite a reputation due to its great performance. AEB-1 performs much like carbon steel which is fantastic when you consider that it is stainless steel!
A heavy duty leather belt sheath is included.
About AEB-L Stainless Steel
AEB-L is a Swedish stainless razor steel. It is a very pure, fine grained alloy (as much so as powder steels). When heat treated properly, produces very small, fine grain, which positively affects edge holding, edge stability and toughness. This steel is known for the ability to take a very fine edge. It has extremely high corrosion resistance with a medium range wear resistance making it very easy to sharpen. AEB-L is made up of Carbon: .67%, Chromium: 13.00%, Manganese: .60%, Phosphorus: .025%, Sulfur: .015%, Silicon: .40%.
