Deal! Every time one of us knocks an elk down we look over and say 'well, the fun's over!'
Nice herd you have there. Eeny, meny, miny.....
More like Sugar Beet Raider #1, 2, 3...…
Was hoping to get a little campfire time this morning for some backyard camping before a trip next week. It's raining so I guess I did the next best thing, strip the coating off a knife. Finally. Sometimes I forget how much better these look without the crinkle coat... which is the worst looking coating there is, IMO. I also hate how it makes it harder to strop and edge and SR101 loves a loaded strop.
Also, my fancy new phone actually captures orange in all it's gloriousness.
100% improvement. Doesn't look like you found any pecker tracks underneath. That's always a good thing. What role will this puppy fill?
Compact wood splitter mostly. It's pretty thick stock for a 5" blade, but it really isn't the worst slicer. It's really comparable to the RMD, really, but that was also a little obtuse for me. The FFG RMD is on order though, so that should be fabulous.
I figure I could pair this with a Kephart, one of the 3 I have, and use the safety mutt for the dirty work and the Kephart for the food prep.
Hey BE, what's the ETA on that FFG/RMD?
It was the old 6-600 week wait time deal... or it feels like 600 sometimes. I think next month is realistic.
Oh, and an update on the safety mutt worked flawlessly for a little wood splitter for getting kindling ready. It's thicker then I generally prefer for such a short knife but I think that adds to it's ability to spread wood.
Paired with the smaller JK in my sig, starting fires in the wet wasn't a problem at all, though I cheated by buying and using a little fatwood from menards.
I hope you do get it next month. Just in time for some fall activities. Maybe carving that pumpkin for your new little punkin.
That would be an interesting knife choice, but might be fun to test out it's agility. S'pose I can use the RW to smash it up when done too. Halloween entertainment for all ages.
I grew about a 1/2 dozen Halloween sized ones this summer. Might be fun to chop em up after Halloween.
Damn good looking Taliwhacker FS in Fixed Blades.
I always was partial to the taliwhacker le
Do you have one or always wanted one?
For a while there, I thought I couldn't make it without a satin Dog Soldier 8. I made it. Of course it helped by having my Infiweiler.
Hey, did y'all catch this? @bikerector ?
I had one for a long time. Sharpest I've ever been able to get a blade is that old taliwacker in sr101.
I hope SWAMPRAT and scrapyard decide to re release the mud and safety mutt series.
So true...so true!
Y'all are making me want one.
Guys, there's a GEORGEOUS INFI RATMANDU for sale in our exchange area. That knife is BEAUTIFUL!
They've really been marking them up. One was nearly $100 over the original sale price. Not saying it's not worth it, but it's a bit tough to swallow when you know they're flipping them.
Having said that, still waiting for my ding
