The LT Wright Knives Genesis has been a resounding success and now LT Wright has responded to requests for a smaller version. We are proud to offer you the little brother of the Genesis... the Next Gen. At 7.5" overall, the Next Gen is an even faster handling knife and quite capable of handling a variety of tasks. This is the knife you want with you all of the time. Whether it's kitchen duty time at the camp out, game prepping time in the field, or an unexpected survival situation, the Next Gen will perform. And, it will keep on performing for you with its 1/8 inch D2 tool steel and 3 inch cutting edge. The rest of it is very similar to the full-sized Genesis with its scales being glued and mechanical joined to the steel and robust hand made JRE sheath. The Next Gen comes with the useful thumb scallops too. This provides more control for fine, up close cutting while still keeping your fingers away from the steel. This knife features an "all purpose" flat grind for handling a variety of cutting needs. The Next Gen makes an exceptional camp knife and will become your favorite "go to" knife. As with all of the LT Wright knives, the Next Gen comes with a lifetime guarantee. Order yours today and you'll have a lifetime companion that will never let you down.

A heavy duty leather pouch style belt sheath is included.

Update: I contacted L.T. Wright and they suggested I send it in so they could check the heat treat. I sent it in and had it back in less than a week. It came back razor sharp and I haven't had any more problems with it chipping or rolling. I'm very satisfied with the knife and with the customer service from L.T. Wright. I'd highly recommend this brand and this website.
Joshua, This is not normal for this quality knife. We suggest you contact LT Wright directly, and share your experience with them. They will be best be able to explain a resolution to your issue. - TKC

I've had my eye on the next gen for quite some time and as someone who can't easily afford a $165 knife I was very excited to get this one. The bocote handles are beautiful and the knife looks really nice. Every knife I own gets used and I was looking to this one to be my "go to" knife. I've only owned it for maybe a month and unfortunately the edge chips and rolls and every time I use it. It should be noted that I don't abuse or mistreat knives. I use them for slicing, cutting, skinning, and carving. I use them carefully and take good care of them so I've never really had to deal with a problem like this. I own $40 knives that have been used much harder and for much longer than this one and they're just fine. I was really looking forward to using this knife for years to come but if the edge is going to chip every time I use it it's basically just a gorgeous paperweight. I guess I expected more considering the reputation of the brand and the price I paid. Super bummed. 2 stars for an aesthetically beautiful product and fast shipping.
