LV fire and fire steak pictures are back! Love it.
A new SET came in the mail Friday and immediately went into my pack and we headed off to the lake. WoodSet #1 drew blood (fortunately not my blood) it performed very well as you would expect from a SET.
you got the #1! awesome! glad to see it put to use
There’s the user pics! Looks awesome (knife and day)! Congrats
she's a beauty, awesome in the hand, well balanced, razor sharp.... you know, all the qualities of a SET ! Next is a split wood fire with it
It deserved to be used. Congrats
Thank you sir ! and I totally agree with you, it should be used ! @Sargent makes great tools that perform - would be a shame to never know how well
You still have this M1 buddy?
Yep. Two favorites here.
THAT is sooo cool! Thanks for sharing!
Thank you @PiterM
Um, if this refers to "Jim Sargent", here's a Sargent bush knife that I've carried and used since the mid-1980's. It replaced an 18" machete and a belt knife.
The sheath is a functional, but not pretty, replacement for the chintzy nylon thing that came with it.
The internet is over and you WON!
These two out in a lot of work yesterday.. sorry no action shots.
My collection so far...still have a couple more due in today, but man, I really LOVE these knives...I think M3C is my favorite so far, but it’s so hard to pick. Love them all.
@Swadehead holy crap, man!! Nice job putting this collection together! That's awesome
Thanks. Two more just in...these may be the best of the bunch....the M3C is Nitro V
You go boy!! I'd love to score a m3c
you might need an intervention or attend meetings or something !!! joking aside, bravo sir ! beautiful collection you put together
Incredible collection! When you have em all (at least the current batch), would you mind listing which knife is which? It’s rare to see that many beautiful SETs in one place!
We’re way past that buddy. Lol
Yes, definitely. I went into this thinking I’d try a few different models, keep my favorites, and sell the ones I didn’t like. Problem is, I haven’t found any I don’t like!!!
Honestly, it’s hard to describe how great these knives feel. The best way I can describe it is “natural”. They feel like an extension of your hand, not just a tool in your hand.
In the main knife line-up, which model is the knife that is three up from the bottom? Really like the grip on that one!
I think all of us participating in this thread know exactly what you mean
That’s a Compadre.
Nice! Congrats again on that haul!
Primitive handles are my favorite with SET.
SET M3 compared to PSK. Both awesome.
Damm @Swadehead you really jumped in with both feet. Congrats. I have been collecting SET's not by just the blade/knife but also the sheath design/carry as well. Brian offers so many options and all are super high quality! I can not think of another knife maker offering comparable leather (and/or kydex) quality, fit up, variety and attractiveness that is included with their knives. Really sets SET apart IMO. I have tried making a couple sheaths and appreciate the work and effort that goes into them.
Agree 100%, these knives and sheaths scream quality from top to bottom.
Can’t wait to knock the new off this bad boy
M3 with other classic stuff...
A shot of the whole gang, then a shot with 1 of each individual model...
That ones purdy!!!
I took the M1 to the kitchen to prepare some fajitas, the wife quickly took over after seeing it slice through the meat like a laser.....and she kept cutting and cutting and cutting..... I think I just lost my M1 !!!!! she's in love with it now
congrats. Such an awesome keppy interpretation!
you are gonna LOVE it. A great one knife option with one of the best convex edges I have used. So scary sharp....hairs jump off my arm when I look at it. I have HAMMERED on mine (with wood) and edge is perfect. The only tiny chip I gave it was I dropped it on accident and it buried deep into the earth and I heard it hit a rock. Made me a little sick but it was so small, it made for an easy repaired. Id there not scandi section near the scales on that copy?
I kind of like that one!
how does one make the "shaman" marks... grooves.... design... in the scales? I know Brian does it on select knives, but if one wanted to DIY???
first you have to go to shaman school; I believe it’s 10-12 years, then.....,
sorry no clue
Leave it to Brian- he’s now progressed to how he performs the shamanism technique....
Wonder if it could be done with a soldering iron, not that I would try. I'd wind up ruing all my knives...
After seeing the pics of @ARPILOT ’s sweet new fillet knife , I had to get one of my own. This little guy showed up yesterday evening, and is gonna be with me all weekend. First pic was the last one where it was “unused.” Started helping me in the yard laying some straw, and then made fire prep a breeze. Wood was just falling apart at the sight of the blade. M1 is definitely a keeper! Hoping to get some good use this weekend!
Beating on it to split a little wood for fire. Between the M1 and the BBT, no problems here!
Love me some BBT!! Nice score on the M1!!
Batoning through this spring king was no problem for the sespe...
Do sheathes count?
