    Little spring steel Bush Buddy. It's like a puukko, a Mora Garberg and Eldris all got together. Scandi grind, roasted birch handle with steel hardware.

    Did some blade testing today! It chops, it slices, it scrapes, it carves, it batons, it pries. Throws massive gobs from the fero rod. I put it through the paces of green hard and softwood, as well as dead standing and seasoned hardwood firewood. Still shaving sharp.

    And thanks! It definitely has heft, but is still pretty lively. POB is about an inch from the bolster. Very versatile.

    BK 62 & a Ferro Rod

    Take a good file and draw-file a short section of the spine. Ideally, just above where your thumb would sit in a sabre grip.

    Thanks y'all! Here's some progress shots of the HBC knife in the works: Started with this. It was way too much metal, so; Cut it down some, and then began stretching it out. Now it's starting to look like a knife

    Made some leather pants for the knife. Got a big ol' Hudson's Bay from an old truck spring in the works; still lots of hammering to do though.

    First piece out of the forge! Still some polishing and such to be done. Made from an old Black Diamond file, which is close to W2 in terms of alloy. Hand forged fittings from mild steel and an antler hilt. Pretty excited!
