Product Description

Lagom Bush Knife Brown Micarta

 

 

O1 Tool Steel

Full Tang

Scandi Grind to Zero

JRE Leather Sheath with Firesteel loop and removable dangler for multiple carry options

 

This knife is a collaboration between Ben Piersma from Ben's Backwoods, Jason Gustafson from Lester River Bushcraft and L.T. Wright Knives.

 

Lagom is a Swedish term used for "Just Right"

Not too big, not too small, not to heavy, not too light.

Jason and I have drawn from our extensive training with our mentor Mors Kochanski and the Scandinavian style knives we feel make the most useful wilderness living tools.

Design Features:

The Handle:

Large oval handle which tapers from front to back and is swelled in the middle to fill your hand. #1 priority of a bush knife is carving and cutting. This handle fills your hand in comfort for all day work with no hot spots or cramping. This is very important if you need to peel a dozen sticks for a set of Roycroft snowshoes!

This handle will feel best with average to large hands and is comfortable in many working positions including a reverse grip using it as a one handed draw knife.

The Blade:

O1 Tool steel, this carbon steel holds a excellent edge and is easy to sharpen and maintain.

Full Tang 1" wide blade 1/8" thick, 3 1/2" long, a palm width.

These dimensions are chosen as a good combination of strength with a blade thin enough not to loose cutting and carving ability.

Scandi grind blade, as the main purpose of a bush knife is peeling sticks and carving.

Full continuous curve on the cutting edge makes sharpening easier and ensures you are cutting wood fibers, meat, etc. on a angle which is always more efficient.

The full curve also gives this knife a narrow tip which handles like alot smaller knife for fine wood carving detail.

The spine on the knife is ground square to be used as a scraper on wood or to run your firesteel.

The Sheath:

We sized the sheath to take about 2/3 of the handle as is the scandinavian style for a secure sheath, you may want to add a cord lanyard on the end of the knife.

Firesteel loop for the 3/8" Army size firesteel.

Belt dangler attachment which is nice for sitting down and hanging a bit lower when wearing cold weather layers. You can remove the dangler and run the sheath on your belt or add a neck cord.

 

Handcrafted by L.T. Wright Knives in the USA

  2. A sharp piece of metal with a handle and a tip. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Dec 2017

    This is the second Lagom knife I have owned. The first one I had to sell for financial reasons so when a I had the funds again and saw they were on sale, I quickly snatched one up. It felt good to be reacquainted with the most comfortable knife I'd ever used.
    The handle excels in every grip I use a knife for, making it versatile across a wide range of applications. I find the blade an ideal length for most tasks needed of a knife in the wilderness. The Scandinavian grind works wood effortlessly, making carving, cutting, notching, and batoning a breeze. The thinner 1/8" blade thickness does a decent job at processing game and even cuts vegetables/fruits well IF you modify your technique to best utilize the attributes of the scandi grind.
    The heat treat on the knife I received was second to none, and was still sharp enough to shave off some hairs after several days of regular use, including batoning, making feathersticks, harvesting multiple saplings 2-3" in diameter, hastily carving a spoon (a penance for forgetfulness), carving a double ended digging stick for foraging tubers, cutting ample amounts of cordage for bush tasks, and several other needed chores. After 20 alternating strops across my belt, the edge was back to effortlessly removing any hairs in its path.
    The spine is the best I have ever used at throwing sparks from my Light My Fire brand ferrocerium rod. It easily launched the biggest shower of sparks onto my featherstick, igniting it immediately. It also strip and processes bark just as efficiently.
    The tip is very acute, making it nimble at finer carving tasks. Pot hook notches were a breeze to hollow out thanks to this feature. It also did an admirable job at drilling through wood, much like an bradawl.
    The leather sheath is secure, functional, and very well made. I found the dangler very comfortable, and allowed accessing the tool much easier when wearing my long lengthed Swanndri Bush shirt. The benefit of it having storage capacity for a ferro rod and some cordage makes it an even more practical field sheath.
    All in all, this is my favorite knife (out of hundreds) that I've ever owned or used over the past several years of serious bushcrafting. I look forward to handing it down to my son after a lifetime of enjoyable use. Great job Ben and L. T. Wright knives!


  3. out of the box great 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Nov 2017

    I don’t know why company’s do this. Ask ya to review a product before a person can actually use it. That being said out of the box this is a killer knife. Great handle,excellent blade. And I really do believe this will be my edc. Have used it a little for bow drill set,feather sticks. I’m not one to take this knife or any blade I own and start beating the crap


  4. awesome knife 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Oct 2017

    I saw this knife in a review on Youtube by HighCarbonSteel Love (Dave). He did a very useful review, sparking my interest in this knife.
    After receiving my Lagom, I immediately started carving wood with the knife. WOW!! excellent design, easy and comfortable to use with minimal effort. I am just a simple outdoor enthusiast that goes out for one and two day trips in the forest. This knife will most likely be my favorite knife,and I look forward to years of quality use with this fine tool.
    Thanks
