PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PURCHASE IS A PRE-ORDER ONLY.  I NEVER RUSH CRAFTSMEN ESPECIALLY LTWK.  THEY ARE GOOD PEOPLE AND ARE WORKING HARD TO SATISFY ALL OF THEIR CUSTOMERS.  I AM CONFIDENT WE WILL GET THEM TO YOU AS SOON AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE. THE AVERAGE TIME FOR ORDERS HAS BEEN AROUND 4 MONTHS. THIS ORDER WAS MADE, JULY 2021

Due to this being a pre-order each purchase will receive, free of charge, a NRS sharpening stone and a series of videos only made for Shemanese purchasers.  
 

Inspired by the early American colonial long hunters, where bushcraft, woodsmanship, and survival were not a pastime, but a way of life in the hostile, untamed, virgin colonial landscape.  Trusted by the hands who carried it and feared by enemies that encountered it.  This design was tested and tried by men of renown such as Simon Kenton, Daniel Boone, George Rogers Clark, and Lewis Wetzel, who placed their lives upon its dependability and capability. These men were known as the "long knives" in the English language, and Shemanese by the Shawnee.  

This knife was designed by Craig Caudill after nearly 50 years of wilderness experience and built by LT Wright Handcrafted Knives. This knife has proven to be capable of handling any task that proper woodsmanship can throw at it.  Step back into history alongside the great frontiersman of old, with updated materials and craftsmanship, and purchase your very own tool to pass down through the generations. 

Please note that all purchasers of a Shemanese are will also receive a series of several videos detailing topics such as sharpening, field care, sheath options, forming leather, how NOT to use the Shemanese, and more.  These videos are available only to purchasers as a thank you for your support.
