    Some fatwood I prepped on a camp trip a couple weekends ago. Not too shabby for a thick knife.

    Scrapped fuzz with the squared spine from the same fatwood to catch a spark from my ferro rod.

    The end result, wasn’t as nice as chill’n by the fire ring in the woods but with the 2 year old and 4 month old both passed out I took what I could get and appreciated being at the camp again and enjoyed a beer by the fire.

    I really dig it too :cool:
    I actually had it sent from South Africa to Germany, and then I picked it up at my friends place there, since it's a bit of a hassle to have larger knives sent to Denmark due to some weird lawstuff. But here it is :D

    My ESEE 5. I’ve had it a few years. It’s been in the woods 3 or 4 times. It’s done a little bit of camp chores. I keep it touched up and oiled. It’s really a bit much for a camp knife but in a SHTF situation I think it would be a top choice.

    I think I'd just have traced the scales on a piece of flat bar/mild Steel, welded a nut on, drilled holes for the screws, spraypainted it and called it a day.. What he did there is plain vandalism o_O
