Thanks for recommending the LT Wright’s! I’ve been wanting a reasonably priced and well made fixed blade that’s not overly large or aggressive looking.Picked up a few new pieces of steel. First a pair of LT wrights with the python micarta handles. Top is a bush baby, bottom is the bushcrafter. I REALLY like the bush baby. Great size and feel. These along with the outback makes the LR collection complete.
But my heart is still into hawks. Picked up this nice TR forge design from a 32oz ball peen. I would hate to image it in flesh. Different breed of males when they met on the field to exchange swings with a piece of steel
Then a nice deer mountian forge with cross markings. Not just beautiful but functional
So sharp it shaved the hair off my arm
A few other wood heft hawks from my collection
I've carried an Old Timer like that every day for almost 50 years. It is getting pretty worn and the blades are very stained.Depending on if im at work or not, these are my two go to knives. My grandpas old timer passer down, sharp as can be. and a Hogue automatic Tanto, cant really say anything about it so far. its a decent knife, overpriced but i got 4 of them for free, so why not try it out, but i like the old timer better.

Just got it, and first impression is very positive! It’s a great size, nicely finished, and that barrel handle feels good in the hand. Just need to break in the sheath a bit and add the firesteel (which I forgot to order.)Let me know what you think but I am pretty sure you are going to like it. I have several LTs now, and they are good little knives. Think you picked the best "first" knife to get.
