    Just be forewarned that this knife could give you cancer though Lol. It comes with the dreaded P65 warning :eek: but it's totally worth it;) www.P65Warnings.ca.gov

    Thank you @jbmonkey, it’s certainly a timeless and effective hunting knife.

    Sigh...now the dang pigeons are digging up seedlings. One down but many more to go.

    I’ve heard you can eat wild pigeon. I’m not sure if I’m that hungry.

    Side note; I bought this 20 gauge Remington LW Special with English stock when I was 12. Turns out, the small size makes this a perfect truck gun for bird control.

    Wild pigeon is good, not a lot different from quail.

    Thanks for the idea on cooking them. I’ll harvest a few more tomorrow and pull out the breast.

    Wild pigeon is very good. They call is Squab and my chinese friend cooked some up for me and it was great. It tastes like duck to me and turns out that all the rumours about pigeons being full of disease is false. Give it a try and you'll be surprised. Supposedly city pidgeon's are fine to eat also but I would have to be pretty hungry.

    I find the handle to be large and clunky... But then again, I have tiny, Trumpian hands .

    Even still, I like a more simple grip that allows me to take a variety of grips.

    I stick to a simple Dexter (7" and 8")... But I too am looking for something that might hold an edge longer .

    I also prefer to have a more neutral grip on a filet knife.

    I have and use a Dexter Russel 8 inch filet knife and like the handle but not the thicker grind.

    The price is a bit higher but the Helle Steinbit Fillet Knife in 12C27 looks pretty nice and is on my radar.

    “Trumpian Hands”.... :confused::eek:o_O. Is that similar to Trudeauian Intelligence? :):):)

    Did your 870 come factory with that straight stock? I love the straight stock on my lever guns, but have never seen it on an 870 before!

    It did! It was a factory option to have an English stock on the 870lw 20 gauge. Awesome little shotgun. I use it more than the Mossberg 500 12 gauge!

    I use the Dexter 7 for most freshwater stuff and the 8 for when I shoot nice, large Hawaiian Mahi and Ono!

    I really want to find a 7.5" 12c27 fillet knife, but they all seem to max out around 6"

    The adjustable ones are either the Kershaw or Cutco ones... But the steels aren't super impressive (420j or 440a) .

    I love Sandvik. I use it on my Mora's, opinels, my kill knife for spearing and even my spear shafts!

    I even had a couple of Kona Big Waves at lunch today, in Toronto at -15°c!

    The 12ga does get heavy after a while.

    Rained out today. Carried the Code 4 today with a deep carry clip.

    CTS XHP is a great steel choice for this knife. I have yet to see any corrosion and have not needed to sharpen it yet.

    This Ruike was an impulse buy, and an interesting folder.

    I’m wondering why it doesn’t have a flipper tab. The knife has all the right attributes. Ball bearings, great detent, and “fall shutty”.

    I like how I can choke up on the handle, and I’m actually extremely impressed on how well done the edge is. It’s almost a mirror polish.

    Color me impressed!

    One of our little dogs was attacked by a large dog last week. This side is from the bottom canine teeth punctures. The other side was much worse, as he needed a large flap to be reattached. It’s a wonder he lived.

    I wish people would be more responsible and better friends to their dogs.

    I am using a SAK to remove the stitches to remove drain tubes. The small tip and presise snips are so handy.

    Man, Great thread. Never had an inkling to go to Hawaii, but where your at and the pics you've shared I don't mind going now. I think just all the touristy stuff on the Islands is what turns me off, I just rather go off the beaten path.
