The Mark II Lynx has evolved into a full sized Bushcraft Knife, it is smaller than the Boar or Timberwolf but it's predecessor (the Mark I) was a small neck knife and not much bigger than our EDC Pocket knife. Whilst it was a great knife it wasn't everyone's cup of tea and we think the new variant just takes the Lynx to a new level.
We have striven to bring quality, well designed products to the World market and the Lynx is part of that continuing evolution. The Lynx is a classic Bushcraft Knife with all the brilliant features of a perfect companion tool.
It features a high quality, scandi ground, 3.5mm Carbon Steel drop point blade that is razor sharp straight out of the box and makes processing wood and doing general cutting tasks effortless. I know that the modern fad is to have a Bushcraft knife with a blade that simply disappears into the handle with no guard, ricasso or choil, well, NOT here. In my opinion knives like this are far easier to cut your index finger when you choke up on the handle making them a danger to you.
The handle is wonderfully ergonomic, just like all of our other models. It features a natural sweep to the back with a god sized palm swell and this makes for a perfect fit to your hand and allows your wrist and shoulder to sit in a more natural position. Straight back handled knives make you unnaturally straighten your wrist and raise your shoulder when cutting vertically which means you fatigue quicker and are not as comfortable to use.
Of course, if you select a Timber handle, you will need to maintain them with cleaning and oiling that can be part of the joy of owning a real heritage piece of cutlery that will last generations. We advise oiling with a boiled linseed oil but there are many other oils and waxes out there that will nourish the wood throughout its life and keep it as water resistant as possible and this can be down to your personal preference.
The Mk II Lynx, of course, features our newest upgraded leatherwork which are a combination of high quality leather with innovative designs. Our modular sheaths have also been phenomenally popular as they offer something different from the norm that everyone churns out. They are all made from high quality Full Grain leather and feature a brilliant array of accessories and carry options so you can really tailor your knife to suit your needs.
