    Full moon still high in the sky over the Adirondacks high peaks. Fog filled Keene Valley. Today’s plan?

    Go here.

    Giant’s Washbowl. That’s Giant’s Nubble on the other side. Beautiful day for a hike. Today’s companion was this

    My Kifaru Tarryall and my 3V Tusker Companion. This TC has seen a lot of work since it was gifted to me 2 years ago. Today it peeled bark off of a pair of maple walking sticks for my kids, cut an apple in half for my beautiful wife at lunch, and cut some paracord to hang my children’s hammocks back at the vacation house. Nothing difficult, everything important. Love that knife.

    At the end of the hike my freak show son was leaping off boulders into pools of freezing cold water at the bottom of Roaring Brook Falls. Last jump was a little short, so out came the fak and I did a quick repair job on his scraped up foot. Then he rode the Tarryall back to the car.

    Some people’s generosity. I am just awestruck at this random package that arrived today.

    Just stupefied...

    Pulled some muscles in my back and neck, still went outside and practiced a skill. After a couple rotations on ice packs I have another one coming up. Keep training, keep practicing.

    I was informed this extra thin version was rare... I’m still going to use it. I’m weird that way.

    I found this ugly mora in a box of trade stuff. Blade was bad. Sap ect stuck to it.
    Scrubbed with scotch brite pads then 0000 steal wool. Steeled nicks with gst. Then sharpened with gst. Little ceramic rod on the tough spots then more gst. Stropped with green compound then dry leather.

    Gst worked great on the scandi. Can get if real flat and consistent. I can circumcise a gnat with this thing now.

    image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg Just finished this. Handled with Chechen wood aka black poisonwood. 2200 on the janka hardness scale. All done with unpowered hand tools. In short, it was a bitch. Very pleased with the results. Yautja would approve.

    Predator in the wild. This thing is the finest southern Appalachian bush knife I've ever found. Perfect for carrying in hand for miles of bushwhacking, trail clearing, branch clearing and digging up wild edibles. IMG_9869.jpeg IMG_9866.jpeg

    On a recent veterans trip to Montana I elected to take an Unk (in 3V) figuring it was both replaceable if TSA decided it was to scary but equally capable in the back county (my back up to that was a simple Buck 110). I can say without a doubt the modified warrencliffe blade of the Unk proved quite the equine knife, I used it once to cut a mule out of a wreck in the middle of a river crossing. The not so pointy tip of the blade made it easy to cut rope next to the animal without worry of accidentally stabbing him (or myself). That might seem a minor detail looking back now but at the time I don't think I'd have had the confidence to ride up to a wreck and start cutting if I didn't already know I didn't have to play surgeon with a pointer knife. On a separate occasion a guy borrowed my knife to cut some rope, he came back saying it was the sharpest knife he'd ever used. I was confused as the Unk was kept sharp on a flat rock I'd found but it wasn't stropped to the fine shaving edge we're all fond of here on the forums!

    Not many glory pictures of the Unk but I did get these two.

    A guy caught a nice snack for the group but nobody had remembered to bring a knife. Unk to the rescue!
    [​IMG]

    Out last night on the trail and it was pouring rain by the time we got to camp. I found about an 8" standing deadfall about 3' tall. Cut it down with a pack saw and split it with our damaged axe. The Unk provided a hat full of shavings. While all the bug spray and old mans beard weren't taking a flame these dry shavings proved to be the ticket. We weren't able to stay long enough to enjoy this hard earned group effort fire but that is a story for another time.

    Thanks, Scott! You make one hell of a knife.

    That is a sweet looking knife. I love the handle and the dark blade! Is it gun blued?

    If you’re asking about my Polaris @XMP it is just shadows and use... I’ll get some better lighting pictures if you want to see. I only have blued one blade of mine, the Bolo.

    @ArmyMacE yes, I was referring to your Polaris. I'd love to see it in another light.

    It still doesn't capture the different colors very well... says the semi color blind.
