The Lynx hunting knife was developed with the help of the hunting community in British Columbia.
Features of the Lynx include:
- CPM S35VN stainless steel blade for superb edge holding while you’re in the field. Under normal circumstances, you should not need to use a sharpener while processing your animal (It’s good to bring along a portable sharpener though, in case the animal has a lot of sand or clay in its hide). The blade weight and thickness is optimized for slicing, not chopping branches or splitting wood.
- generous belly on a relatively short and wide blade, yet sharp at the tip for plunging when needed
- our standard CNC blade finish, where the milling steps that form the bevel remain visible. Check out our article on blade finishes for more detail.
- hand-filling handle that’s still slim and light enough for easy maneuverability
- jimping at the spine in front of the handle for extra grip and finger reference to the blade when things get slippery.
- stout torx handle hardware allows serviceability should it ever be required
- hidden lanyard hole for sleek new-school look (optional paracord lanyard available, though you can easily make your own)
- your choice of sandblasted black linen micarta (looks grey) or hunter orange G10 (with burgundy red liner) for rugged service (the orange is obviously harder to lose, while the micarta is a bit lighter and offers a bit more grip). Optionally, the Lynx can be fitted with a set of our west coast wood handles: either pacific yew or spalted western maple.
- choice of left or right molded durable Kydex sheath with a stiff webbing belt loop. We offer either a standard length or an optional extended length belt loop (for clearing of hip straps on packs).
While the Lynx is optimized for hunting, it’s also a great knife for fishermen and general purpose cutting chores at the campsite.
The Lynx’s Kydex belt sheath comes in either a right or left handed configuration, molded to the knife for a secure fit. 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.
The Lynx, like all North Arm’s outdoor knives, takes its name from BC fauna. 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.
