This is the archetypal bushcraft knife design. Shaped in such a way to provide maximum strength and cutting efficency. The blade is hand made in Sheffield from 01 Carbon Tool Steel and hardened to Rockwell 56/58. The edge is ground through rather than whetted to achieve a superbly sharp edge. It has a tough buffalo handle with lanyard hole. Supplied with a high quality leather sheath featuring a Fire Steel carrier. The blade is 3.9mms thick providing excellent strength, weight and balance.

    Good knife

    Posted by Stephen on 7th Jun 2020

    It's a very good knife just like it if the handle was bigger with a palm swell and a bit narrow for my hands

    An excellent knife; well made and ergonomic.

    Here's a little story. This A. Wright bushcraft knife was the first bushcraft knife I bought and it was a great purchase; very reliable and a faithful companion for the time I owned it. Then I sold it for a more expensive knife and that new knife I sold for a better knife and so on and so on, until I ended up buying a Ben Orford custom D2 steel knife for the princely sum of £450. I treated that knife with kid gloves but earlier this week the tip snapped off the blade when cutting a pilot into my bow drill hearth. I immediately bought another Wright's bushcraft knife. And it will be the only knife I'll own from now on.

    bygone era quality at a bygone era price

    Posted by tyke on 9th Sep 2016

    in my view the only contender to ray woods mears bushcraft knife the only intelligent criticism i agree with is the original grind is too shallow any company telling you that a knife with this grind is easy to sharpen either have never had to or are lying through their teeth if you are investing upward of 100£ for a knife learn to hone it you will have to invest nearly as much as you payed for your knife for a set of japanese whetstones and without skilled tuition spend many hours practicing sore fingers to boot if you persevere you will have a companion that will last several lifetimes

    Posted by Sid on 7th Mar 2016

    Got one of these knives good quality English bushcrafter but as many say grind did not extend high enough Sent it back to A Wrights told them what I wanted and they re ground it for me free of charge ( even though it was bought from here and I contacted them direct ) now it's just about perfect

    I've had this knife for over a year and it has performed amazingly, the edge is super shape and last for ever, the only small down side is, it's only 4 1/4 inch instead of the 4 1/2 inches as advertised.

    SIMPLY SUPERB

    Posted by F R Milburn on 16th Jul 2012

    I had the stag handled made to my spec, at a nominal extra cost, with an extra thick handle and spacers; it is a work of art, believe me, and a fraction of the price of virtually the same, personality knives. It is a personal tool, and mine is beautifully balanced and fits my hand like a glove.

    beautiful!

    Posted by nick on 1st Jun 2012

    Very nice knife indeed! Mine came with a razer edge. Though the grind is only 1\4 ground and could be deeper at a 1\3 grind. Still getting used to the knife as it is very differant to my normal one. Nice thick spine splits and carves realy well. For the price its a bargain! Fit and finish is good but not without some tiny faws.9.5 out of 10! If your a traditional bushcrafter just get one. Best knife i have ever handled. When I am used to it I will use it daily and do another review, but for now, if you can afford/need/want one...just get it!
