By morganleah March 2011 The knife is just in my possession and have already made a first trip where I used to make us a bit of firewood, carving and beat a few stakes, cut some cord and prepare a sandwich ... in short, ordinary stuff Yesterday I used it to light a fire in the house using the firesteel Today I made a "bit" of batoning, splitting and chopping in my lab (in fact I did firewood) First of all I am built the clapper then I made "ergonomic" removing a bit of shrapnel Then I started to dance. The chestnut wood is seasoned. These were the masts of the vineyard of a friend and through him I have wood for the winter :thumbup: here my friend (and collaborator as well as chief designer) molletta having fun after all this work the thread is still perfect even if no more razor sharp. this is the result will not sharpen the knife until it will be more able to cut fine paper ... for now even though to tear at some point. I will take a short weekend in the woods by using it to make a building then I will continue laboratory tests on materials less "easy" even seasoned wood.
