I heard the tail is super tricky to skin, you did a great job here!
Thank you! I ended up following these instructions:
How’s that taste? Looks like it might turn out like pork crackelns? Mmm.
@LostViking Next one I catch I’ll give it a shot!
@Raven67 It tasted like the texture of ribeye gristle with the flavor of pond water. I think the mountain men were after the fat content. I would imagine they had a very lean diet.
That doesn't sound very appetizing. I thought their tail was suppose to be good eating?
SpEaking of appeTizing....
Ready for tomorrow:
... and gone into the wild! With that M3
Good looking chow man!
Made enough later that morning for the family- really enjoyed it. Perhaps a bushcraft rendezvous and I could get some chow cooked up for folks in attendance.
Just added a fire-steel loop and now it's much better.
I made a mistake to order a sheath without it.
Very nice. How do you make those lanyards? Is there a thread or video?
SET M3 compact...with an Echizen Kenai Tsuba EDO PERIOD (18TH CENTURY).
That’s Bad Ass, love that M3C ! That’s a gorgeous EchizenTsuba. How did you find that. Amazing pattern. Would be interesting to know it’s history.
Love the belly on the compacts hope to score on some day great looking knife!
LotS to contEmplate wiTh the beginning to a new year- “KISS” , for me, the M3P is one of those things to reflect on while making dinner.... Happy New Year gang!
Right back at you. Happy NewYear!
This is totally random, but there are some guys that used to post up here often and talk about their SETs. But I’ve not seen them around in a while. Anyone know the status of
I posted a thread inquiring about @Schwert last year. Sent pm's. Nothing.
@jcl_md is on Instagram and very active. Still kicks ass.
@Wilt I think I've seen him on Instagram recently, too, but I could be wrong.
Certainly three guys I'd like to see more of around here.
can't wait to get my hands on one of these.
I got to take it up in the woods for the first time today. I'm not gonna lie, it's insanely well made.
Used the mora 510/SET leather combo to make a one stick fire/coal base to cook dinner tonight...
I love that Shaman Barrel Bead!
Loving this PSK!
Nice combo. Like the fire steel back sewn sheath. First one like that, that I’ve seen.
Hi Schmittie, Yes sir! I'm still around. Thank you for asking. I still have everyone of my Sargents blades which number many. Been doing a lot more fast and light section hikes on the A.T. vice the bushcraft focused trips of late.
Thank you for the kind words! Same goes to you my friend!
There are so many new and shiny knives around the place that this old man doesn't get out much. I have sold a few M3s before, and always ended up with a new one; I don't think I'll let this one go. o1 still just feels right and ages right.
here are mine...think I use the one on left the most and the next one I carry a lot.
Very nice collection sir!
You got one! Hooray!
Wow, wow, WOW! Look what just showed up today! Soultrean isn't the least expensive SET offering but what a blade! I can't wait to put this thing to work...HARD. This blade screams, "try and hurt me" or "try to show me something I can't handle!". I am in the midst of the one knife challenge and this will make it near impossible to complete but I intend to hold out as long as I can.
Initial thoughts are actually feels like a "fast"/light knife. Balance point is in just the right place. Tip, though stout, seems nice and pointy which should translate into a very usable forward section. Vari grind makes for a party in the front and business in the rear. What's more functional than a leaf shape blade? Various grips feel awesome rear swell appears that is will make a decent chopper for its size.
Boy do I wish this showed up on 1/1.

M3 over Soultrean
Thanks to a generous member, I finally snagged an M1P, and as a super-bonus, it came with my fave belt sheath; dangler, rivets, firesteel. Featherlight, handy blade.
@kcardwel you've got 3 in one post that I'm covetous of!
Brian's like a mad genius I swear.
Glad to see you guys getting outside!
After applying Obenaufs.
Nice! Still have a good solid grip on the handles after applying Obenhaufs?
It is beeswax based but ya wipe off the excess and you're in business. I wouldn't say a notable difference after use.
Thank you sir
Yes good grip it actually adds a tacky like texture to the Micarta.
