No seranade, no fire brigade, just pyromania...
Some fall gardening today with the psk.
@VanGo asked me to post this. Comparison of a few. All the same but different. Hope this helps
Forgot the ebony and ivory had liners. You can see the difference between a gen 3 and gen 4 in the comparison.
Immensely- I am in love with the 106 M3P
The spear point is like butter in my hands. It just feels perfect. It's a badass. Thick, heavy. A bruiser. But I find myself grabbing thinner blades. Just for more detail stuff I've been doing. I'm about due for an everything else but purge.
.....But the SETs. I may have a Sespe that I can't seem to get a good grip on that may go. Im not at liberty to be a collector. No safe, small apartment, no one knife to rule them all but I'm about covered from a psk-DV to the serechete. The serechete is great for spoon carving.
There will no shortage of folks interested in what you let go, if you let any go.
M1, M2, M3, M3BS, Matilija, PSK.
The M2 and Matilija are much more different than I originally thought. I figured I show a side by side since I'm probably not the only one who thought this.
Size of that M2 looks great
That M3 with the HT scale left on....
Just got this a few days ago. Taking it with me tomorrow to try out in fishing/four wheeling campout.

Getting to know the SEREchete-WSK Hybrid while doing some yard work...
Is that a leather backer? any chance you can post a pic of the back side of the sheath?
These pictures are on request of @mauiarcher
thanks jarrod....was hoping the dangler was aftermarket and something I could do. SWEET rig!
I like, I think that rounding the butt of my M1 would make it that much more comfortable during use.
Spent most of the day Monday trying to dig out a rented 2018 F150 from some very loose sand up in Big Bear. Good test of the Serechete shovel mode and sheath grader mode. SETs got dirty.
My SET family is growing...
Damn thats a fat coal! You make a new spindle? Looks good mang
August in the Sierras. Angler knives about to jump
From earlier this year, Damien rocking his M3 primitive that got me begging Brian to make me one too (above). I've had this M3PC for 3 years and if my house catches on fire and I have to grab one blade, this is the one. I know its just a knife but damn i love it! Photo: Sargent
That says a lot!
damm....were you sitting n the gravel on top of your sheath?
No the M3 leather sheath is actually made for digging!
its definitely stiff enough to do so....Awesome sheaths, great retention! I picked up a well used (used well) m2 and assume it is a few year old and the knife still "clicks" into such.
I was wearing it the whole time. I am a bit tough on gear thats why I buy the toughest gear.
Theres a Ford joke in here somewhere
Can’t mince to many words with this.......
My son chose black micarta.
We may not have birch trees, fatwood, yuka, flint rock, etc. but we do have some wonderful resources like bamboo, coconuts (cordage, food, drink, and great fire making tinder), hau trees (carving, friction fires). I am sure every area has its benefits and resources....the key is knowledge and actually trying to implement. #usewhatugot
Making a bird trap with the kids on Bushcraft Sunday. M2 is a great size for triggers and serechete is of course a beast.
Walking around looking for excuses to use my SEREchete-WSK Hybrid...
Looks like a fun family project.
Love that your daughter is rocking a Jaakaripuukko!
The shears look like they have paid for themselves!
We had a big time until dogs came and ate the bait and mangled the trap. Re-built and reset once but as soon as the dogs went out again, they went back for seconds. Will have to figure out how to set it out of dogs reach.
Yes...gave her a Tereva puukko and my son a garberg as their first real knives (graduating from a 511 or companion). They haven't earned a SET yet....until they either learn to sharpen all the nicks they put in their blades or How to avoid rocks. It is a joy to watch them use a knife as a tool and not a jewel (and not to worry about the cost thereof). Trying to teach them skills over gear which is hard to do given the number of knives own.
Shears have been used, abused and neglected and in dire need of a sharpening after trimming up the ends trying to make it look pretty. (bamboo is tough stuff).
Would that be an M3C at the top? Still learning about this incredible line of knives. Thank's!
that top one may be the new mors model
edited: I was looking at the wrong pic
My PO handled PSK to keep the post legal.
Yep @mauiarcher is right. It's the Mors model.
Thanks guys. Really nice size and design. The quality of work is amazing to say the least.
m3 vs m3c
She's a looker. Handle is a bit slick. It's birdseye maple and oil, I think Tung (no laquer). Does anyone have any tips to rough it without changing the diameter too much. My idea is to coat it with laquer with the sharkskin additive they use on boat decks and such. Not SET scales.
Personally, I like the birdseye... following SET intuition file grooves into the scales OR do a jute/epoxy wrap? Good looking work.
Great Idea! It did not occur to me that the "shaman" treatment would increase grip. I am probably overeacting and its a learning curve (no guard). I am attached to my fingers and want to keep it that way (pun intended). I think the scales look great as well.
106 SET M3 primi... Hold on loosely...
