    I like slicing my jerky into really thin slivers to pop into my mouth.

    Greetings from a week-long cycle holiday. We had rented a cabin from the island of Åland, which is in the archipelago between Finland and Sweden. Good roads, lots of history and very beautiful countryside, full of apple orchards, sheep and cattle, old well kept farmhouses and the sea. Weather was not the best, mostly windy but not too much rain.

    I learned a lesson conserning knives taken with me on these trips. My next knife taken on a trip like this will be 3,5 - 4 inch blade, sturdy spine to handle firewood BUT flat grind, or high scandi grind. This knife did well in firewood processing, but left a lot to be desired in cutting foodstuffs. Since all knives supplied by the owner of the cabin were butterknife dull I had to use this knife almost everything. Also this blade was a bit short for all round duty.

    Sounds like a fantastic trip :) That's a nice wee knife, but yes, flat-grind definitely wins! :thumbsup:

    Thank's. The island is large enough for cycling, but not too big. Longest distances we did in a day were 60 km, so not too much. Also we have electric bicycles so this made it easier in a strong headwind, but limited the available distance to 65-70 per day before the battery ran out.

    I'd forgotten about electric bicycles. It sounds like they don't recharge from pedalling and braking, then?

    I must drag my bikes out of the back of the garage before Winter. Maybe after a rain, so the ground is softer to fall on.
