    Yes. I started home roasting toward the end of last year, so I'm still fairly new to it. The beans in the Native picture are some that I roasted.

    I used these quite a bit growing up also. Here is a better angle. I normally use the larger size which I have a few of. It is the Kathy Kale brown drip. The smaller mug is the only one I have of that size and it is marked McCoy on the bottom. If you search for replacements under either brand, you will find a variety of mug sizes and styles.

    Finally got a sheath (Savage Sheathes) for this old Western W39 that I've had for decades. Folgers in the cup.

    It's the BHK Featherstick. It basically is a Mora! I love the handle on this thing.

    Basically a Mora? Tell you what, I'll trade you TWO Moras for it. You'll double your value. I'll even throw in some "gently used" bank line. ;)

    @BalsamFur - haha! I guess I should've said "it basically is a Mora, with a full tang, micarta scales, and made and assembled by hand in America. And it comes with a beautiful leather sheath!" Now if you have two Moras like that... I'll take you up on your trade. ;)

    How do you like the Esee 4HM? I have the normal Esee 4 with TKC extended handle scales, but was thinking of parting ways with it for the 4HM.

    Of all my ESEEs it is my favorite and I've got an Izula, Candiru, 4HM, 5, 6HM, and a Junglas.
    For my large hands it sets a high bar for a production blade. I am excited to get my hands on a PR-4 too.

    IMG_1589.JPG IMG_1590.JPG IMG_1592.JPG Picked up a new blade in a trade this week. Battle Horse Knives Scout Platoon with curly Maple scales and black liners. This knife is stout. I want to see how a scandi in 5/32" O1 steel works as I have scandis in 1/8" and 3/16". I love the one in 1/8", but 3/16" seems a bit thick for me. I prefer a saber or convex if going that thick. Anyway, this one has a nice smooth handle and my initial impressions from cutting up, splitting, and shaving some wood this morning is positive. I figured I'd take some pics as I'm likely putting a coffee patina on it later.

    Enjoying some mountain blueberry coffee. The knife is an older custom from someone named Hodges. It was a large trailing point, which I`m not a fan of. So I reprofiled the blade. The handle was made for Andre the Giant! So it got slimmed down and then some new pants! 20170914_073040.jpg
