    Naps are important...

    Super abusive use of my Puukko today.

    In all seriousness sleeping comfortably is an important skill. Here’s another use of a Tuff Possum MPSS. Pillow mode, or seat cushion. In a survival situation or long trekking adventures performance can be greatly reduced without good rest. Here’s a simple and effective trick I use.

    Thanks,

    This Puukko has been kicking all kinds of @$$ today. Opening bags of mortar, pruning trees, cutting grass for my a quick nap pillow, slicing up rhubarb, peppers, fish... it is definitely a serious contender.

    American made goodness.

    I got to use the tools before I had heard of the two men behind them. While using these tools I developed a relationship with two folks I would like to call friend. I have yet to meet them, but I think their work speaks volumes.

    They have taken the time out of their day many times. As quite a few here have. To have conversations about random things, answering many questions, and have provided many times good advice. They are definitely some good men of the outdoors community.


    Thanks,

    This blade has 8 months of off and on again use trimming trees, hedges, and bushes. Occasionally digging in the dirt. It is the Bolo in A2 steel. I haven’t used an actual sharpener on it. I have given it a few swipes on the Gossman Knives Sharpening Steel or a ceramic rod before use. It doesn’t shave your hair off, but it will definitely cut paper, branches, weeds, and other plant growth just fine. I have now officially decided people suggest sharpening way to much. Maybe I’m crazy... who knows.

    The new Polaris in CW has arrived for some comparison and testing. There are some very subtle changes.

    I’ll be running the new Polaris through some standard knife task, and odd ball stuff. From normal use and utility to a little borderline abuse.

    A few of the subtle variations are the handle feels slightly slimmer, but looking at it actually appears to be a little larger. The convex at the edge is definitely not as pronounced as the older one, so it looks like it will give the blade a little better slicing capabilities.

    Lots more to come. I’m looking forward to putting the new CruWear steel through its paces. This will be the first blade I have used in this steel type. A quick look of the blade before it gets EDC and field testing. Scott very generously offered me the opportunity to test out one of his blades.

    We’ll be looking at Corrosion Resistance, Edge Retention, Overall Toughness, Edge Stability, and what ever else there is.


    Thanks,

    The handle on the new one does look a little thicker. But my guess is that is just the normal variation one gets with custom knives made by hand.

    Coffee good, dropped kids off at school, some dishes washed, a little bit of reading. Now onto a project I’ve had in mind. Stay tuned...
