    Yvsa Flute Music

    Yvsa was cool. I miss him. He got me educated on how to get a truly sharp edge on a kuk more than anybody.

    Ray Mear's Wolfspyder

    I have been looking at these. That's high praise because that Enzo Birk I just love. Deploys faster than an auto and great blade. I almost always carry one around the farm.

    Longterm Review: Fallkniven F1

    I had a Buck 110 that snapped like that. I had it since 1975 or 6. In 93 a friend was cutting some rope with it and the blade snapped off. Same as you, I looked at it and it appeared that there was a micro crack where the blade joins the tang and there was only about 1/4 inch or so of metal...

    Mors Kochanski - very sad news, thoughts, prayers...and cards.

    If we could all aspire to have inspired as many people as him to enjoy the woods and nature, and also to come together with other enthusiasts in a communal way where they enjoyed each others company as he did, the world would truly be a better place. Sad to see him gone.

    Dan Koster Kickstarter Disaster

    I always liked Dan and still do. No bad dealings but nothing bought recently. His first gen bushcraft knife is one of my favorite knives still. If we are talking about HI alumni I'd say where Dan messed up was he did not do like Fiddleback. When he got to a certain size he scaled his production...

    What do you do if you are twisted up in the woods?

    I've never got really lost but I'm a bit dyslexic so there's been times when I'm going and the compass says I'm going right and I'm like "This can't be right" but it turns out ok. One of the best bits of advice Nessmuk: "Don't argue with the compass" Amen. I HAVE got off the path a few times...

    Been thinking about Proenekke.

    I used to carry a super heavy pack and had to rest like every mile or so. Then I started reading Nessmuk and Mors etc and cut way back. In the summer I've gone on 3 or 4 day trips with a small day pack. I love knives so a lot of times I'll bring more than what I need but really like...

    Mors Kochanski - very sad news, thoughts, prayers...and cards.

    Not sure if you were talking to me, since you didn't quote me. I used to work at a paint plant where they made asbestos paint in my college years and several of my pals there died of mesothelioma due to their exposure and it was a sad thing.

    RIP Charlie Mike

    That's sad. I haven't been around much but I always enjoyed his posts in the past. He was a pretty young guy right?? Seems as I remember him talking about some issues related to being in war. Too bad. I hate it when nice folks leave our world.
