Show em to me brothers and sisters!
Here are mine...
In on one
Always interesting to see the new type Mini. Mine is the first pattern and bought as a 'blank.'
Even the little ones can get in on this!
Also we should link to the skrama action thread. There are actually two of them....
Mine is too shy to pose for pictures.
@BladeScout , I love the blade on your mini!
I agonized between getting this one or the Mini Skrama and choose this one over the Skrama. I knew exactly what would happen; now I want the Mini Skrama as well!
But I will NOT cave.
PFFFH! Who am I kidding. I was in the same situation when I had to buy EITHER the 110 or the 140. I choose the 110, as I thought it would see more all-round use.
I said, I wouldnt cave
.......then a while later bought the 140
Forgot a picture...I carry my Skrama and TJP along with my saw, in the rifle scabbard in my pack nowadays.
Picked up my 1st, a 110, during their free shipping promotion. I want more already.
If one wants just one of their offerings, that would be my choice as well.
I can't leave things alone so I cut the handle off and added a new one . not done with the knife or sheath yet. the blade is awesome and insanely reasonably priced
The light is failing and it’s starting to rain here, but I want to hop on this thread early, since I might be the TJP 110’s #1 booster on the site.
Haven’t had the chance to truly bond with the Skrama yet. I should probably just take it outside and whack on stuff until that happens.
I expect to be back to this thread often.
Looks good. More pics, pls.
Back when most of them were new.
there is a lot of metal
I think full tang is overrated
Some homemade leather sheaths for the Teräväs. I really liked, that you could buy just the liner.
Dangler strap comes off, as I only rarely carry the Skrama on my belt. It most often sits in or on the ruck.
I experimented with ALICE clips for attaching the Skrama to the MOLLE on a ruck but never warmed up to it
I’ve been drooling over the Skrama for what feels like years. Haven’t been able to pull the trigger on one yet. But I gotta!
Love that sheath.
^^^^^^^I have to get a Skrama. Very cool!
So Terävä Aficionados... this is a good question for this group, I think...
The original Skookum Bush Tool had (or had the option of) a hole in the blade, to allow for use of the knife as a shearing tool. That didn't really catch on, but with the Skrama, we have that hole anyway. It's there for manufacturing reasons, but it's there.
So, has anyone found uses -- shearing or otherwise -- for that hole in the Skrama's blade?
Haven't done it myself, but it would be easy to put a dowel of some kind into it and use it as a spoke shave holding it by the dowel.
Yeah, I can totally see that... improving how one could use the blade like a draw knife or spoke shave.
Or, instead... whether at home or in the field... instead of a dowel, take a branch that’s thick enough to give a good grip, and use your Skrama or Jääkäripuukko to carve down a tenon that will fit that hole.
I did too. For like 6+ Months I think. Then I bought one and it's sheath. Probably in my top 5 blade purchases ever.
Up there with buying my first Morakniv, my first custom, and my first SAK.
I REGRET NOTHING!
Not a one. Not yet. I have used Drekitönn, Dragon tooth- as I call my Skrama, as a draw knife quite often just as it is.
Sure. If you lay your Skrama down on a piece of paper and put a thin pencil in the hole, it'll help you draw a circle.
I always assumed it was to hang the blades in the heat treating process, but that's just a guess on my part. I would think they could also hang them from the lanyard hole, but there may be a benefit to hanging them blade up. Dunno???
the company says the hole is for hanging up the tool for storage. says so on website ...
The company said that the hole in the blade is for straightening it during manufacturing, or something to that effect. I suspect they use both the lanyard hole and the hole in the blade in some kind of clamping and torque process.
This is my carbon Skrama. I don't know what you guys are doing, but the black came off of mine on our first outing. By the second outing I had a nice big ding in it, and now its got more chips than a blackjack table. This thing chops free hanging branches like a light saber though. It chops so well, that it is now my main trail blazing blade. Couldn't be happier with it.
them chips are caused by alabama rock lichen sticking to those branches. it's a little known biological fact ...
Hahaha, you only need the first few inches to be clean anyway right? Roll tide...... (tongue and cheek as I don't watch football)
I loved the Rat Patrol. Probably why, at age 61, I have two Aussie slouch hats. I believe there is one in my avatar. A non outdoor person actually asked me if the photo was real and asked if people really had canoes and hats like that!!!
Its also part of a baldric rig (not shown) but most often just goes in the side pocket of a ruck.
Why is there a hole in the blade? It is there for practical production purposes only - it is used when tempering the blades and later during other steps of production.
I thought Id use the hole in the blade for hanging the knife when not in use but I most often just hang it on a peg by the lanyard.
I'm 60, so prime age for the show when it was aired. My friend had the Rat Patrol board game., and a Rat Patrol lunch box which is where my avatar comes from I believe. Love the Aussie hats! I canoe with something pretty similar also!
A lesser blade would have snapped by now.
I'm doing something wrong in my technique, need to practice more. Those curls and feathers are amazing. Factory edge angles/grinds?
There we go!
I didn't even have to turn my phone sideways to see your location to know you were from Southern Michigan....
The two-hearted said it all!
Good stuff my friend.
Also love the teräva pics.
They sell it here in Colorado as well. Just FYI.
Alright you guys making me want to add one more.......
... How do I convince my wife I don't have a problem and I need a skrama.....
I'm not a "one tool option" guy, but the Skrama is totally a one tool option.
