Finally made my way to the "lost" (well not easy to get to) box of knives today....
Chubby love .
Andy those trail scalpels always looked super cool to me is that one i see buried down there
Yep there is one with Black/Tan G10 in the pile there.
Your pile is still amazing me to this moment.
One day I will need to get them ALL out. Though I try not to have them all in one place at one time.....some may question my sanity
Yup still amazing.
I think I’m a member of that Asylum too!
It's why I NEVER put them all in one place at one time.....
Was a good day for incoming mail !
Just snapped one here on the verandah of shack I am staying in...
Wardog in todays snowfall
I’m not a big Busse fan but they have the single greatest knife ad of all time.
They have a few gems from back in the day
........ that influenced the writing of my will...... Lawyer didn't even bat an eyelid at me......said it is not nearly the strangest thing he had been asked to specify !!
I decided to get the ratmandu when busse was discontinuing several models. The reviews on the knife were good. I received the knife, fit and finish were outstanding but the factory edge was abysmal. Handle ergonomics were good but with the large choil it caused fatigue when using a standard grip, too much pressure needed to make a cut due to the obtuse edge geometry. Utilizing the choil the sharp part of the grip dug into my hand. I was still learning how to sharpen knives at this time. I got frustrated and put the knife away for a few years. I decided to make an effort and sharpen it with a thinner edge recently. Now with a thinner edge the performance is better. Tried some feather sticks, not too shabby. I am still learning this knife. I need to find some green wood and make some try sticks.
