Glad to hear its getting use!! Thanks for the write-up, Brother. Appreciated! Keep safe!
Just a small update:
The Cocofibre Micarta has really, really aged well with use...I love the appearance. It gotten a touch darker.
Just an FYI Josh, @razor-edge-knives, this stuff holds up well, and is beautiful with use.
Wow! It looks amazing!
Ember, with some pickin’s from the garden.
All organic! Including the Cocofibre micarta scales.
So...here we go again.
As you know, this little Ember has been put through the paces. The amount of stuff it has cut is ridiculous...Envelopes, food, hose, pipe, hardboard trimming, plywood trimming, packages...without the Ember ever hitting a stone or strop.
Then, making a divider for a kitchen shelf for my wife, I needed a rag to you know, clean the melamine up a touch. I pulled out the Ember and had a fleeting thought...dang, should I hit the strop before cutting through the rag?
Naw...let see how sharp this is.
No problems, and then more plastic baggies right after with no snagging.
I must say, at this point, I’m very impressed.
Gonna have to throw it though some tougher applications.
Be well all!
Great feedback thanks Coleman!
I have noticed the 12 dps edge will have some damage to the apex when subjected to lateral loads (wood carving and torquing on the apex).
Nothing of notice here as of yet...
Oh...and upland and waterfowl season is Almost here...so...
ohhhh can't wait
Chillin’ with a double full rainbow...for a second.
Was up a 3:30am cause I couldn’t sleep...good time for fishing...yesterday I scraped some fungus off a piece of hardwood firewood and curled a bit of the edge on the ember, so this morning I hit it on the strop lightly. Straightened the edge and now its hair poppin sharp again...time to head for the water....the smallies are bitin’!
Sweeeet is that on your property?
Very nice looking knife! What is that handle made of? (Sort of looks like grass, lol.)
I wish!! Although there is water on my property, its no good for fishing. Just for bringing ducks to the table.
That was a river not too far away. I live in the land of a million lakes and rivers.
It is Coconut Fibre Micarta. Years ago Josh said “hey, i got this new micarta, wanna check it out?” So he used the coconut fibre micarta on some custom scales on a T.Burger front flipper for me. Turned out awesome and have been hooked on it ever since. Good grip when wet...and looks so natural.
Im not sure if Josh has spots left, but there are more Embers dropping late this year/early next if I’m not mistaken.
Coconut fiber - who would have thought?
Marked out a new sledding trail through the untouched bush yesterday...Ember did some work...it’s nice to have a sharp knife. Paired with the Case/Bose (engraving by @WValtakis), dynamic duo.
The Q would have been a better piece for that!
Well...I managed to do it...I was installing lights on my little tin boat, and chipped out the edge on my Ember trying to pry some light gauge brass connections apart. :/ Shoulda known better...
but now that the lights are installed, early morning fishing and late night fishing are a go!!
I also cut some zipties and some duct foil tape all with zero damage to the edge.
Two things are for certain...
1. I get so involved in my work that I forget to take photos of the Ember in use!!
2. The Ember is now officially a staple every day carry...literally EVERY day. Work pants...on goes the Ember...bush pants...on goes the Ember...around the house pants...on goes the Ember. Haha.
I am still carrying inverted and have found this the most comfortable way to carry.
The Ember is amazing and has really caught me by surprise. Today it trimmed branches, opened packages, cut tape, and marking tape on the trail.
The past couple weeks it has sharpened pencils, cleaned up plunge cuts, scrapped junk off wood, and other random tasks at work.
Other than the first time I sharpened the microchips out that I created while prying brass, I havent had to sharpen. Once on the strop after resharpen, and good to go. It is still scary sharp. It really is a good edc small fixed blade. I am extremely impressed. Dang man, what a blade, Josh.
For those of you who don’t have one...you’re missing out. Find one, get on a list, snag that baby and never let it go. Haha.
Have a great weekend all, and keep ‘em sharp!
Here we go again...
I swear I’m not a pusher...haha.
But I remembered to take some photos...
I use the Ember a lot at work...cleanin out some post cutouts on a deck...and lots of random other tasks. No prying tho.
Took the Ember and the DEK1 out on a grouse hunt today...thought this was a pretty cool work of nature...
And success!! Was a fun day today, and the Ember was up for all the tasks...gonna hit the strop shortly, as the Ember has finally lost its “hair popping” sharpness.
Hope everyone’s weekend is treating them well.
Keep ‘em Sharp!
