    I heard the tail is super tricky to skin, you did a great job here!

    @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?

    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.

    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.

    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
    @jcl-MD
    @Schwert
    @Wilt

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    IMG_1040.JPG 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.

    It is beeswax based but ya wipe off the excess and you're in business. I wouldn't say a notable difference after use.
