Opinel mushroom knife. I use it for shroom foraging, and here, to cut collards in the garden.
These aren't the best feather sticks but only took a few seconds and were good enough to get lighten with a Firesteel. Sure you get better ones with finer blades etc., but as long as I can get a functional result I always prefer a more robust knife. What can I do? I like the chubby ones....
My wife got me my Christmas present early this year. My first Microtech. I'm totally hooked!
Gerber Flatiron D2, with a Strider SnG for size comparison only. Just got the Gerber today, so no info yet on use. It looks great, the action is very smooth and it's sharp enough to shave arm hair. It has brass washers and the blade is just slightly off center. No jimping on the back of the blade which I think is odd, otherwise great ergonomics. The blade, pocket clip and over-travel plate are polished. $50 at Bass Pro.
Thanks again @Twoody88 for the cordage!!!
Tops basecamp parang just arrived
New addition to the machete collection,
10" corners No127 for $35.
Finished up a couple of these sexy MFs just under the wire for 2020. Pix before sharpening (it was daylight):
Pictures show a broken link.
They show up for me on a regular browser. Maybe it's your phone?
Using Chrome on my desk PC and the links are broken from this config as well.
Super weird. I see the same problem in Chrome (this is always firefox). URLs are correct, image host is working. I can take the URLs from the rendered html code and they open fine directly. I wonder if it's a BBCode/Chrome issue. Will edit some more...
Trying again. Maybe something got copy/pasted that doesn't show in the BBcode editor:
Yeah. I think Chrome is borked.
Or something. Same problem on Bladeforums. I can see fine in FF, not in Chrome, so it's not just here.
I can't add these images via direct code or with the formatted editor and have them show up in Chrome. Fine in Firefox.
In the meantime, can be found here: https://www.instagram.com/p/CJeqNsIjbhZ/
Handsome blades. Is that feathered friend a Titmouse?
Thanks! (Still confused about the image tags)
Yes, a tufted titmouse. Very common around here. They tend to hang in small groups, and often with the chickadees.
