    Teaching my lady some wilderness skill. First was knife safety. She’s learning that slowly, but managing to not cut herself yet. lol. Now she’s getting the hang of feather sticks. She’s getting proficient at the wrist and forearm locked to the leg and pulling the piece of
    Wood to make the cut.

    Thanks man. The size is deceiving. Anyone that knows me, knows I have some rather large hands:

    As the holiday season approaches, I get a little nostalgic… thinking back to those trips to the woods with my uncle and grandfather. As a young buck -Hiking, camping, and hunting in the fall was what introduced me to this world of survival skills, prepping, knife collecting and bushcraft. I still remember my fist “good” knife… a buck 110 handed down to my by my uncle whom my mom bought a brand new Gerber Gator for hunting. I still remember Christmas Day when he opened his gift, he saw the Gator and immediately removed the 110 and leather sheath from his belt- saying “no need for two knives on my belt” and handed it to me. My mom freaked because before then I was only handling small Swiss Army knives being in cub scouts. I was 8 or 9 at the time and a near 4 inch lock back was too much for me in her eyes. So she put it up. I was devastated. A year later, after not having cut myself the entire year, she put the 110 in my stocking…. I proudly put it on my belt, tucked my shirt in (which I never did) and then we drove to my grandparents house for Christmas morning breakfast, where my Uncle would be to meet us. I couldn’t wait to show him I got it! We all opened presents together and Funny thing was, he had bought me the Buck 112 thinking that since it was a little smaller- my, Mom would let me have it. I proceeded to open the box put both knives on my belt….

    anyway… if you’re still reading, thanks. The 112 ranger was gifted back to my uncle about 10 years ago to give to his grandson. Who was about 7 at the time. Unfortunately, he never became much of a woodsman and plays video games alllll the time. I’ve since moved several times and hopefully have my old 110 somewhere, but I haven’t been able to find it in about 8 years. So recently I’ve picked up a new one. And wow. I’m blown away. The look, the feel, the shaving sharp edge. It’s all as good as I remember. The blade is perfectly centered and everything!
    another this I love about it, it’s not tactical. It’s traditional. In a world where everything is going so high tech, it’s nice to reach for something made so similarly to how it has always been made.
    And this brings me to performance. Check out these feathers with the stock edge.

    also…. Has anyone knocked a feather off and decided to try their hand at feather sticking the feather…
