Those a technically a mid tech right?
I think so. I can't remember the exact details on the one or two that Sam has made.
I remember seeing one I really liked that (if I’m remembering correctly) he said he sourced the blades from Finland. Then he did the handles and such himself. They looked sick!
"LIT" i think is what he called it. You are right that its not on the website but i think he has a video for it.
Those models (the B.U.S.H. Knife and the L.I.T. Knife) are very similar. The BUSH Knife came out first, and is the mid-tech. I use Polar puukko blades, which are great little scandi ground and hand made blades. They are quality, and inexpensive, which allows me to keep the cost down.
I put them in an aluminum hollow handle and cord wrap them, and make a simple leather pouch sheath for them. The price tag is around $225.
The L.I.T. Knife is a handmade puukko blade (by me), with the hollow micarta handle and dedicated firesteel in the handle. It is very lightweight, with the knife/firesteel coming in at under 5 oz. (on the prototype), and only 2 oz. more for the sheath. These guys go for $345.
Both are fun and highly functional. I simply have not had time to add them to the website. I appreciate all the support, guys.
A client submission from a Keppie awhile back.
Is that KMMichael?
I love it, my man.
.....that is pretty Strig !!!
The patina is coming along...
Check out this picture yet no mention of @Sam Wilson in the video:
Wow what a terrible Youtube channel. It appears all of their videos just compile clips from promotions or manufacturers. I just thumbed up your comment and @Sam Wilson
Stunning design and execution. Absolutely stunning.
Thanks for the heads up, DJ. Super lame of these guys to do that.
Agreed, absolute garbage. Just recycling other people's info for views/likes. What a bizarre society social media has created. @R Stowe @DYSPHORIC JOY Thanks for your support. Now that my name and information is posted in the comments, at least a little "free advertising" will be gained.
@stickman Thank you!
