The Genesis, Gen I
Due to such a high demand for custom knives, and wanting to provide as many people as possible with the best cutting performance that money can buy, I have put together a small, light weight, minimalist design that will give you the best cutting performance for a price all can afford. I chose to use a steel that is rather new and due to its high cost is not used very often by other knife makers.
Steel: CTS-XHP Alloy carpenters’ steel
Hardness: 60 HRC
Cutting Edge: 2.625
Weight: 1.65 oz.
Sheath: Kydex Neck Knife (pictures available soon)
This is the same steel I use in many of my custom knives. If you want to experience an edge that will perform like nothing you have used before, at a fraction of the cost of a custom knife, or if you want something to hold you over while you wait for your custom knife, this is the knife for you!
I am excited to finally have found some manufacturers I know with state of the art equipment to provide only the best work – right here in the USA. This knife is 100% American made, and its quality is not to be rivaled. The Genesis is the first in the line of quality knives I have planned for the future of MT Knives. So get your piece of history in the making now.
The Genesis was designed for cutting performance and will out perform the competition, however it isn’t a pry bar. Designing a knife that can be used for prying and chopping you sacrifice some of the properties that help it hold a keen edge and maintain a level of sharpness I prefer in a knife. I do plan on designing a bushcraft knife in the future that will be made to handle the type of stress a bushcraft knife is subjected to.
Many similar designs sell for well over $200, however suggested retail for The Genesis is $175 and will be on sale for $150 for a short time.
