Inspired by the early American colonial long hunters, where bushcraft, woodsmanship and survival was 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 experiences 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.
