    And this is why this sub-forum is one of the best little corners of the internet. You’re good people my friend.

    I’m good. I have more tools than time or hands.

    So when your 8 year old says “Dad, can you make my stick pointy so I can walk in front of you in the woods and protect you from wolves and bears?” what do you do?

    [​IMG]

    You get out your Polaris and you make that stick as pointy as you possibly can. And you thank your lucky stars that you’ve got the most awesome kids in the world. Of course, I may be a little biased ;)

    Something interesting I noticed in the difference between steel types. My 4V Polaris from @S.Gossman has started developing a patina. However my 3V WST has not, if anything it has slowly gotten polished in some areas from use.

    That is interesting. I can’t speak to 4v since I don’t have anything in it; but my experience with 3v is similar. I haven’t seen much if any staining or patina with it.

    @S.Gossman words:


    4V will patina where 3V can but not as much. It has something to do with the chromium carbide distribution during heat treat. Most 3V knives made react the same way. That's why 3V is sometimes mistaken for stainless steel which it is not. It has 7.50 percent chromium and 4V has 5 percent. You need at least 14 percent chromium to be a stainless steel.

    I've seen that done before. It is pretty slick! How many feet of cordage did that yield? Could the strand be made thinner to give more cordage?

    I did the same thing with my Newt Martin knife. Dwayne Unger posted the video on his IG page. It went viral with over 37,000 views. Here's the knife.

    image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg Another foraging mission success. Found the ramp honey hole. The GST is a fine ramp digger-upper. And a bonus giant shed and the first morel I've seen this year along with Dutchmans Breeches and Squirrel Corn.

    Not So Instant Coffee:

    My wife thinks I'm nuts that I won't just throw a mug in the microwave. But on a nice day when there isn't time for an actual trip to the woods making a cup of coffee in a little more old fashion manner is the next best thing (even if it's not much of a challenge for my Tusker).

    Sorry for late reply, I got 10 feet of cordage. At 1/4" wide I'm sure if you dropped the width down you could get 20 feet or more.

    A little dreary out this morning so the Polaris and I decided it would be a good day for some stew.

    Let’s see...feather sticks- check. Making pointy sticks- check. Slicing a pile of meat- check. I guess the only thing left to do is go stick the Polaris in the dirt and dig some stuff up :)
