Cutting Tools

Post by RFA » Sun Feb 26, 2012 1:27 pm

I've noticed that people have been posting some cool knives and guns on the board, so I figured I would start a thread about it....and also because I'm stuck at my house with 60 mph wind and a dog with the buttspits.

Feel free to add your own.

The collection, some Gransfors Bruks axes, some finnish puukko knives, and a few others I will get into below:

My Boss made me 2 of these, etched with "1 of 2" and "2 of 2". I gave one of them to my brother for Xmas. Sambar stag handle, D2 steel.....fucking incredible knife. They say you can't buff D2 into a mirror....and he did. This makes the Randall look cheap.

Estwing hatchet. I had this thing for years, rusted to shit, duct tape handle....I gave it to my former boss, and he cleaned it up real nice...even stacking leather and using the original spacers (buffed). My brother calls it the nicest Estwing on the planet. I had my former boss also etch my son's name on the other side. It's his when he gets old enough:

I'll play that game too. Of every tool I own, nothing has been as valuable as this. I heat my house 100% with wood (a few space heaters sometimes, to be honest), and have for the last 7 years. This saw has touched every piece of wood that has gone into my stove since then.

I just cleaned it on Friday...it is never this shiny.

Your taste in blades is excellent.

Taste in Shotguns - not so much...

Give me a holler when (notice I say when, not if) that thing refuses to eject a spent shell, I'll talk you through it.

Otherwise, sell that P.O.S., save some coin, and get a BPS (if you must shoot a pump), or better yet step up to a Beretta.

What are your thoughts on the CZ Upland Ultralight (if you have seen it)? The Benelli is clunky and heavy, but I got into hunting later in life(2 years ago), and it seemed like a good gun for the money. It's been good to me, but I thought of getting that CZ.
