    She put in some work today. From chopping to slicing the baton to cutting up onion n tomatoes. Love the patina she's getting. 20211030_173341.jpg 20211030_192551.jpg 20211030_204046.jpg

    A little drilling mod. Not sure why TKC doesn't put these grooves in their esee 3/4 extended scales, but the paracord stuck out too much. Now it's perfect. 20211109_152930.jpg 20211109_152948.jpg 20211109_152957.jpg 20211109_160447.jpg

    Thanks. Yeah not sure why they do it on the LS and the extended izula ones but not these. Not a hard mod but still. No biggie though, needed to kill 15 min anyway lol.

    A friend's 4 3D. It feels even shorter than the regular 4 in my hand, due to being thicker in the middle and thinner at the end. Only HM for me :D

    I wear XL gloves, so not some XXL monster paw, just a short handle.

    Quick walk before work
    Misty, cold, wet and FRESH - autumn is here.
    The 4HM is such a nice knife, loving it!

    Did a few upgrades to it. Changed the D ring to silver, changed out the paracord, the old one was cool but too much orange I think, cause I needed to break up the colors some. Then, this really bas ass sterling silver Harley bead. One thing left to do and that's to put hollow tubes in the scales. I think that would top it off just right. 20211127_135532.jpg 20211127_135541.jpg 20211127_135614.jpg 20211127_135633.jpg

    The 4HM helping me preparing lunch.
    If I could have only 1 knife this might do it.

    Beautiful 4. Is it blued or some wicked patina?

    Awesome! I have had similar dark result with boiled coke (boiled as to not leave any air bubbles) on a carbon Mora.

    So.. Not quite done. I know I know, y'all probably getting tired of me posting this but eh.. I love it :D I bought more "mechanical" looking screws and replaced the ones in the scales and a few in the sheath. Had to order more screws so I can replace the ones in the dangler also. Going to etch "HD" on the Rowen side as soon as I can find the right lettering and I'd really love to find a way to etch or dremel a chain in the spine. The first pic shows the Phillips screws, I think the new ones look much better. 20211207_125036.jpg 20211207_131243.jpg 20211207_131258.jpg 20211207_131445.jpg
