PatriotWith camping season almost in full swing, some may say that a good fixed blade knife is almost a necessity. For anyone that prefers to EDC a fixed blade knife, the L.T. Wright Patriot is an excellent choice for both time in the wild and after the wild is over.

All the knives from L. T. Wright are small batch produced in the USA. They make knives with an eye toward continual use over the generations so the quality of this knife is outstanding. The Patriot is one of the smaller knives in the L.T. Wright lineup. This not only makes it incredibly versatile, it’s a discreet, non-threatening knife that’s an easy daily carry. Whether you need to make some tinder for the fire or just open up a newly delivered package, the Patriot can do it all.

It features a 2.62″ A2 tool steel drop point blade with a satin finish. The razor-sharp blade has a sharpened spine that is excellent for gathering tinder and makes increases the productivity of ferro rod usage.  At just under 6” overall, it’s unobtrusive and small enough to be discreet. The micarta handles are polished and are as durable as they are unassuming. They have a fantastic feel in the hand. Hand-peened brass pins hold everything together. Finally, this knife is available in colors ranging from bright blaze orange to dark red and tan and comes with a leather sheath with a belt loop attachment.
