    This knife does it all!
    I've prepped several meals with it, including thin slicing garlic and ginger.
    I've batoned with it several times (which I normally don't do with a knife)
    I've butchered several chickens with it.
    I've boned out chicken legs and thighs with it.
    It gets a good spark with a ferro rod...

    I'm telling ya this knife does it all and does it all well :cool:

    Coleman's stainless cookin kit and a cup that nests on the bottom of it. Got em both @ Wally World for bout 20 bucks. It seems to be pretty good quality (as good as you can get from Walmart =] ) for the money.

    I finally pulled the trigger on a Cold Steel trail hawk that was delivered yesterday (to the office, no less.)

    No pics of mine yet, as the first order of business is to strip the paint, sharpen it so that it might cut something, smooth out the handle so that it doesn't stick when taking the head on/off, and otherwise modding it...

    Seeing as there aren't enough pics in this thread - this is the one from Cold Steel's site:

    I know... no pics, but I'm workin on it.

    Becker BK16, stripped, with hot apple cider vinegar patina.
    Lately all I wear is Tru-Spec 24/7's but I decided to experiment with a new pair of lightweight "Genuine Gear" pants. So far not bad.
    Wife picked me up 2, 1944 Knapp Monarch US mess kits at a silent auction. $15.00 total in excellent condition. She done good.

    Correction, one of the kits is a M.A. Co. kit from 1944. They are nearly identical but not exactly.

    Last week I receivean Aurora fire starter and a rothco european style wool blanket. I got tired of waiting for the smell to leave, so I sprayed it with febreeze air spray yesterday afternoon and put it in the washing machine last night. I haven't ran it through the dryer, but I'll wash it one more time without any soap and then tumble dry.

    Not directly bushcraft related, but I had to order a new phone because mine is 3 years old and starting to go out. The new one will have a better camera and video recording.

    Just received a Special Grade Old Hickory 14" butcher's machete from Baryonyx. Haven't had a chance to really whoop on it much, yet.

    Gonna be fun, though! May have to buy some more leather to make a sheath for this beast. I'd have to crazy quilt one together out of what I have left.

    I was in need of a drawknife, so I purposely focused my search for a folding one that would be easy to pack. Found a decent vintage one on fleabay for a small price. Too beat-up to be a collectible, but with a good blade - so I won't be afraid to use it.

    10x10 $7 poly tarp. A little difficult to fold up solo... but worked great to keep the dew off me.

    Silky Big Boy - Large Teeth. About the same size as my 21" Sven saw so I was willing to try the larger size saw. Trying it out to see if it binds as much.

    Just Today!

    Thanks Bill, good timing for this thread; I just got these in the mail about 3 hrs. ago. Curse you Bill for making me take photos of shiny metal surfaces (blame Bill for crappy photo - best I could do).

    NewToys.jpg

    Ahti Leuku 180mm from www.Lamnia.fi, Silky Bigboy from Chris in Japan www.CEllison.net (it finally came, Chris!). Damn is that Ahti sharp (other than my Rapala's, my first Scandi Grind - I cut my skin 4 times just oiling the knife and putting some finishing wax on it)!

    Let's go cut something!

    wow 3 different silky saws in a row :4:

    RSV I opted for the Large teeth instead of the extra large teeth in the hopes it would cut dry wood a little better. larger teeth = green wood, smaller teeth = dead wood. was hoping to get a happy medium between the two.

    I found a Bundeswehr Taschenmesser (German army issue pocket knife) for $12 at the surplus store! Same model as this one only mine doesn't have the nail file on the side of the saw blade. I'm thinking of modifying the bottle opener to work as a can opener instead. I can't believe they're still including that useless corkscrew on these knives! The blade had a couple of nicks in it but I fixed it up and got it razor sharp. Nice new edc for me.

    I don't have pictures, but I recently got a MSR 1.1 stowaway pot, 40oz klean kanteen, condor folding saw, and I ordered a Condor Bushlore this morning. Not doing too bad! :D

    Mora 120 and "viking whetstone" from Ragweed forge, combo 1000/6000 waterstone, kevlar carving glove

    I'm actually wearing the viking whetstone as a necklace lot, and I never wear jewelry except for wedding ring.

    This just came today!

    I am on a personal mission to work more on learning skills and experience, rather than lusting gear!
