Creek SidE wiTh my compadre...
@Phantom X Looks like you have some cool stuff in the works with all that handle material.
That's not even 10% of it...lol.
A special Matilija.... and coffee mug.
When b levels up such a classic design ya get greatness!
Man I love this knife!
Real nice updated design for sure!
Another nice collection! Sweet finds! Got to find one of those serechets! I know there's one out there longing for escape from its current closet, for a new residence in my pack
Nice collection there!
very nice. What is the first one? M4?
You're missing an Apache!
Like that striker too! Dang!
Na, its a m3 xl with a pommel. I think that’s the only one Brian ever made...to my knowledge...a beast! Plus, it’s kept me from buying a skookum!
Haha, Man, I know! I had one but let it go...it is a very similar design to an Ackerman serrata that is one of my favorites. I let it go to fund another....same old story. I do miss it though.
Got lucky with the striker...@vango turned me onto that one. It’s made by lt wright, by far the best I’ve ever owned and a great match to boot... if your in the market you can’t go wrong with that one.
Yep, LT makes great things too. He did a sheath for me years ago. Still going strong!
“Why are you cooking in the house when we have a working stove?”
My SET compadre understands-
Got myself an early bday present this morning!
Been wanting to try out one of skabs sheaths for a few years now and, I think, this makes an amazing combo!
These are pics from the sales thread...I’ll have more when it hits the doorstep!
Great eye Mike! Looks like a awesome combo-
Dude..... brother from another mother??
-50°F splitwood fire action.
Used Gossman Polaris and SET Samantha shaman and a firesteel.
Oh man! SoCal kid would be a statue. Hardcore!
Lowest I have experienced was -20F, coincidentally my last winter in PA before moving to FL. It had been 20 years since it got that cold so they stopped adding the antifreeze needed in the fuel oil at those temperatures and -20F is when heat pumps stop running because they cannot extract any heat from air that cold. I was the heat pump guy working for a fuel oil dealer. Not a fun couple weeks. But yeh -50F is hardcore.
I have driven by this house/memorial a million times. This time I stopped to see what this was. I guessed it was a piece of the towers, surprisingly I was right. The FPT is there to show how thick the steel was.
Caleb smashed a Yucca leaf so I could make soap to wash her off after cutting up a frozen chicken.
Is that a run on sentence ....
It's all about team work in the backcountry. Angler Knives putting in the work to help Fallbrook Forge with his first hand drill coal.
PSK on some birch bark.
so when someone says load me up so I can take this back, you do it.
Proper shot my man!
Oh my hands ... we tried mulefat out of a river bottom after a week long rain storm before switching to telegraph on sotol. Angler and Fallbrook hands.
My choice for this years' One Knife Challenge.
This video isn't listed. Just some fooling around to practice some editing. I haven't made a video in a long time so this was to try and figure it out again. Might do a different version some other time. Need to figure out the sound and all that stuff. There is profanity, don't let your kids watch it. There was water in SoCal so we get a little weird.
That's a nice one! A2 and pointy.
edit, a year?!
5 Weeks, lol
Really?!! I thought it was in 01 all this time. hahaha
Here I was thinking, "damn Brian's 01 is on another level for edge retention"
I hope you didn't mind me rounding the butt. This knife has been a joy to use exclusively this past month. What damage it did take was not enough to talk about. It's cleaned up around axe heads, skinned animals, busted breast bones, prepped food, opened cans of beans, pulled daily shop duty on the work bench, been used as a razor for painting the house, batoned so much firewood and fat wood to keep up warm. I really have taken a liking to this blade. Thanks so much for the kydex sheath too. It hasn't left my side during this 5 weeks.
Been wearing this a lot and was fishing yesterday and wanted to make a bow drill set out of the juniper around so used it. Surprised for a smaller knife how well it did. No problems at all and is still as sharp as it was originally.

I had a great time last month but so happy One Knife Challenge is over! I have been clamoring to use this Soultrean since it arrived. Last month went by as slow as Christmas....but today sure feels like Christmas morning after having snuck a peak under the tree. It's finally on now.
This will be my intended kit for the foreseeable future until I get to know this knife a little better and its capabilities. Haven't done much yet but can attest the convex makes some pretty awesome, fine, and easy feathers. Seems it will be a very capable light chopper...picture is a complete cut through on a big (about 12') coco palm drawn with one swipe. The knife was lightly swung to seat it in the remaining stub for the picture (still a deep penetration)
Nice. That one made me want to grab it and run through a jungle. Something real primal and good about them.
That looked like a FUN trip. favorite was the ax vs. saw and the spark off. I would call the knife competition a draw - 1 win each for curls, spark, and frozen chicken cutting. Would have been funny to see the swimmer try to get through the chicken though.
Brian, are you using a ULA pack? Ohm is my favorite.
That one is a semi custom CDT I got on eBay cheap. I love it. 6” extra extension collar.
You actually watched the video!
Fine day to be outside!
this one stays with me in the jeep...not such a great day here....cold and snowy

We all watched it! Glad that cam is getting some use.
Video turned out awesome B!
