The Lynx hunting knife was designed with the help of the hunting community in British Columbia. It’s a knife geared to making the processing of game as efficient as possible. The CPM MagnaCut stainless steel blade heat treatment aims for optimum toughness over optimum hardness while still featuring edge holding better than our previous S35VN blade. Our new ground blade is skeletonized in the tang to reduce weight, making it 25-30 grams (about 1 ounce) lighter.
The blade is wide and thin with plenty of belly, yet sharp at the tip for plunging when needed. The Lynx’s hand-filling handle is still slim and light enough for easy maneuverability. The Lynx is available in a choice of several G10 handle colours as standard, or can optionally be ordered in a solid carbon fiber twill composite. The CF is about 75% of the weight of G10, but also very strong and definitely cool looking. We are also now offering fatcarbon nebula as a flashy handle option. Note that the nebula material is only slightly less than G10 in weight due to the higher epoxy ratio than our regular CF. For the super weigh conscious, our lightest Lynx carry to date is the new ground blade, which is skeletonized in the tang, with our regular CF scales.
The knife comes with either a right or left handed Kydex sheath, molded to the blade. The sheath hangs from a stiff webbing belt loop in either our standard length or an optional extended length version (for clearing of hip straps on packs). Right handed sheath’s are designed for carry on the right hip (the knife is drawn with the right hand) while left handed sheath’s are carried on the left hip (and drawn with the left); choose which you need when you make your order.
While the Lynx is optimized for hunting, it’s also a great knife for fishermen and general purpose cutting chores at the campsite. We did not design the Lynx as a bushcrafting knife, for batoning and such. Use a hatchet, machete or other beefy blade for those jobs.
The Lynx takes its name from the Canada Lynx. Between 20 and 50 thousand Lynx are estimated to live in BC, mostly in the colder areas away from the coast, where they primarily live off their preferred diet of snowshoe hares.
