In a day and age where knives seem to be designed and built with a specific use, it is sometimes easy to forget that the knife is simply a tool meant to be used in a variety of ways. Maybe it takes a knife that has ‘General Purpose’ in its name, to remind you of what it’s truly meant to do.
That is what knife designer Tim Stetzer and maker L.T. Wright had in mind when the L.T. Wright GP Medium was conceived.
While speaking with Tim I was able to get some insight as to his mindset when designing the GP Medium.
After designing the Bushcrafter knife, a knife designed with the emphasis on woodcraft, Tim started designing a knife geared more towards general utility use. He stated he wanted something that could work well for camping, and even as a hunting blade, but had a bigger image in mind.
Tim is a buddy of mine. I never realized he was the designer of this knife. Blade reminds me of a Helle Mandra, but the handle on this looks much better.View Linked Article
