    Hello fellow Bushcrafters!
    Today I received a superbly crafted knife from one of my braws.. @Jim L.

    This stunning little knife sports a stainless blade, antler handle, copper pins, senue wrapped, B. Fn A. Craftsmanship I don't really know what else to say about it and hope he can fill in all my blanks in the construction of this ultra light cutting tool of epic proportions!! IMG_20180418_182957.jpg just look at it.. love it.. now it's time to use it.. IMG_20180418_183242.jpg feather sticks.. like a boss... I use poplar for feather sticks and shavings whenever available. IMG_20180418_183643.jpg Knocked out the notches no problem, I used limbs from a down cherry, not seasoned but not green either. This dude handles like a scalpel! I'm liking it! IMG_20180418_183735.jpg Here is where it gets real.. this limb and I go way.. back.. that mark you see there was the cut that broke the little knife that could... Well.. thanks to @Jim L. I sent him the deceased remains that was once that little knife that could.. through his awesome craftsmanship and imigination the little knife that could still can.. He returned home looking far better than he left.. $1 knife that accompanied me on my $10 adventure. Went straight lumberjack on a 40 foot poplar and won, only to meet it's match in battle against a fallen oak tree.. Well guess what... IMG_20180418_184215.jpg
    Boy did that feel good!! Anywho!
    @Jim L. The real hero of the story is you my talented fellow Jawjahanian.. I'm pritty sure that's a word.. sir you took a half a $1 knife.. and made it priceless! Thanks Jim you sir..are the man IMG_20180418_184628.jpg The little knife still can...

    Wow, what a cool story. Thanks @Jim L. for saving the little knife and @Bushcraft-kelso for the test and story telling.

    ELEGANT is the word I think of when I see that knife. What a beauty! Sow’s ear become the LADY!

    That's cool! @Jim L. brought that blade back from the dead! Awesome work my friend!

    When I seen that knife in it's resurrected form all I can envision it doing, is opening up the belly a nice, fat trout!

    Jim is an awesome man, who does awesome things.
