    So I did!
    Started with the Reeves axe to cut my log down a bit, then realized it would be better to have a bucksaw so I picked it up while out to lunch. Once it was cut I used the Junglas to debark it and trimmed away a lot to get it down to where I could work with the AS Classic and my Old Timer.

    It's not quite as pretty as the guitar VAsticks
    Carved but thanks to ya' for the inspiration!
    And the knot where the soundhole was totally accidental but perfect.

    Got the band together for a group photo

    I need to add that the Classic performed carving duties very well and I enjoyed it very much.
    Maybe not it's intended purpose in design but it was awesome to use nonetheless.

    Last weekend it was raining/snowing so I got to practise my kitchen bushcraft skills... image.jpeg

    Couldn't find the vegetable peeler and I felt like batoning the stew turned out pretty good.

    Just wondering if any AS knives are made with a shorter blade, 3.5" or less? Like a mini version?

    Worked on the guitar a little more and tidied it up a bit recently. One coat of blo and it really enriched the colors of the wood.

    Posted this on Instagram a bit ago, haven't been able to be on the forum that much anymore. Trying to change that. This was a birthday gift from my childhood friend, definitely a surprise. During conversations, he found out all the things on my perfect ASK and ordered one when the books opened. IMG_1643.JPG

    So... what are the details? Steel? Wood? Love the tapered tang, btw. That's probably the ONE thing I'd consider changing about my Mountaineer.

    It's 1/8th in O-1, Masur Birch, blue liners, tapered tang, scandi. Honestly, would've wanted convex edge, not scandi, but Cody has only made one convex Classic to my knowledge. Still madly in love with mine.

    You're second in line for it if I ever get tired of it. Someone else already called dibs back when I first got it. Honestly I don't think I'll ever get rid of it I've thought about it for long time. I can't see myself parting with it.

    I was half picking with you about that but yeah, if my name comes up in the hat....? I need another knife like I need a hole in my head anyways. And you SHOULD keep that one, it's pretty b/a.

    Got out to the mountains today with my son to warm up by a fire and make lunch in the woods. Had my convex 3v Mountaineer with me for fire prep work and to slice up the Venison Kielbasa.
