    Using this as photo dump for the condor hudson bay knife I modified years ago and some of the projects I made with it. Its a bushcrafting machine!

    My amigo @Huey gifted me the hudson bay knife years ago just because he wanted to see me modify it. It aint a beck, but it gets it done.

    Thank you very much. I think patience is the essence of bushcraft, instant gratification is seldom had.

    I know you got more buried some where, but this picture dump is awesome! Massive display of skills, and most importantly crafting.

    Looking forward to seeing more!

    Thanks,

    I'd love to see a tutorial on how you cut those saw teeth. :4:

    Interesting conversion.

    I was not expecting so much awesomeness when I clicked on this thread. I am subscribing in hopes that you add more. I sold my Condor Hudson Bay (never thought of it becoming a Tracker!).

    Very cool. Well done.

    Always been a fan brother...#30 was truly earned! You have mad skills. And I couldn't agree more, the Tracker Action Thread used to be magical!

    You'd have to throw @NWPrimate in there! I truly believe that him and @field-expedient could build a small city with only a shoelace and a breathmint!
