    I got my M-18 home and went right to work cleaning up the yard. This thing is a chopping fiend! It was comfortable to chop and balanced very well. It bites very deep and spits out axe sized chips.

    After a ton of chopping and a nice fire it still made fuzz sticks like a champ.

    I had been wanting this knife since I saw it in the spring, it is even better than I had imagined. Thanks Todd for a great knife that Im sure will give me a lifetime of service.

    Glad its feeling at home in its new residence. A little history for the folks about Psyops M-18. Many of you know I've been numbering them. Psy owns "ole #4" . not #4. Its"ole #4. The reason its got the "Ole" or old in front of the number is because this is the only M-18 I have sold used. "Ole #4" was my own personal M-18. I made it for me to use and not to sell. And use I did. As I told or warned Psyop is this particular M-18 has been beat, hacked, thrown, left in the wheather, used and abussed as hard as I could abuse it. I think I even insulted its mother a time or two. I met Psyop in the spring at Ethan Beckers gathering. I imediately realized that I was in the company of a truley good man who has devoted his life to bettering this land we all know and love. Psy has served in Afganastan and is a fire fighter here in the states. We hung out and became instant friends, and he told me then that someday he was going to own one of those M-18s.
    Fast forward to last weekend. It was good to see psyop again. We had kept in touch a few times and I had two M-18s to sell. Now I won't lie. They aren't exactly the cheapest things in the world, and understandably with another baby on the way (a little girl I might add) he knew that the money was better spent elsewhere. However. I could see the disappointment on his face when they sold right before his eyes. So I offered him my "ole #4 for a discounted used deal. A fair deal both ways was made and he took home a old friend of mine. Even has or at least had a sticker of me and my wifes favorite brewery/grill on the sheath. But I am confident that "ole #4" is going to a good, well deserved home. Enjoy it psyop. I hope it brings you many years of good service.

    Thanks for the info. Although I read that email before I read this post and I mistook you for the knifemaker! I gotta get off night shift, I'm losing my marbles.
