    image.jpg It sits deep in the sheath and needs a lanyard for removal. But I like the security of the tight fit

    That's exactly how I'd want a knife like that to fit in the sheath- secure. Would hate to lose it or have it fall out and impale me. It looks perfect for 90% of cutting tasks that you'd encounter. Very nice!

    Meet G.I. Joe, or the BEAST as I call it. What a knife @BogdanS , I love it!

    Some battoning, cross battoning and feathers. I love how I'm able to make some nice wide fat curls with it as well as small fine ones.

    Beautiful knife and IMAGES, MTR! Bogdan has indeed tops me that he always hopes his knives to be used and appreciated as tools... For decades to come.

    Looks like you put The Beast to work!

    Thanks @JasonJ .... I beat the snot out of it today, and no chips or rolls whatsoever. It's a BEAST but it can be so gentle.I

    I'm in talks with @BogdanS about a custom, I just can't decide on a handle material. It will be my first ever custom for me, and I want it perfectperfect, and I'm confident @BogdanS can accomplish that.

    Really good looking blades in this thread. I am curious about the stock (?) handles on the Beaver. How thick are the scales? 3/8"?

    And it is a 'broomstick' design, right? No taper/ tear drop?

    Thanks a lot brother @Hall,

    Indeed i usually start with 3/8" yet on request and if there is available we can go for any other thickness ;)

    The 'Beaver' has a light tapper; the upper and lower contour lines of the handle are not parrallel. Please excuse the clumsy explanation but i am not a native speaker :)

    All the best, God bless,
    Bogdan

    I gotta get me one of these beavers. Talk about an appropriate name, they seem to just chew through wood (duh). Yours is a very nice example!

    Just received this amazing little "yew eyes" puukko from @BogdanS! The crosscut Romanian yew is just out of this world - and I love Bogdan's creativity and artistry with the canted v fiber and Finnish scrimshaw in the white corian. I've owned a lot of knives over the years -- too many, probably. But this one is something special. That's the best word I can think of for this knife. Just really unique and special - thanks so much, Bogdan!

    Here's a side by side with a rehandled Mora 2/0 for size comparison:

    [​IMG]

    I can't wait to see how she cuts! I believe that Bogdan ground this one with a convexed secondary bevel. So from the spine down it goes convex and then the primary zero scandi to the edge. Should move through wood like butter. Going camping up in the San Juans in June so watch this space for "in use" photos :dblthumb:

    Thanks! It's almost too pretty to use. But I do, moderately. It's insanely comfortable. It's a very close but "improved" variation of the classic Alan Wood Woodlore style, and that style became so famous and popular for a reason (other than publicity by Ray Mears), and that's because it works so well for most all camping and woodcraft tasks. The coke bottle handle shape is very ergonomic and fits the human hand wonderfully.

    Bogdan's Aurochs pattern is one of the best blade patterns out there. In my humble opinion of course.

    Gorgeous two-tone yew Aurochs from @BogdanS that just arrived :4:

    [​IMG]

    I've never had good luck with coke bottle-type handles. Just never hit my hand the right way. Surprise, surprise, this one is no exception, but I couldn't resist the opportunity to try an Aurochs. Really nice bushcraft knife, just doesn't hit my hand in the right places. So I'm going to gift this one to a good friend and camping buddy of mine who is taller and with larger hands. I will continue to use my beloved Bogdan puukko (one of my favorite all time knives!), my buddy will use the Aurochs, and between the two of us we will have some real Bogdan Bushcraft adventures! Pics to come soon I hope :dblthumb:

    Thanks, @BogdanS, for continuing to offer excellent bushcraft knives with unique artistic touches at such a great price -- we are all very lucky to have you!

    I would love to get my hands on one of your knives!! But everytime you put one up for auction, they speed past my budget by the 3rd or 4th bid!! Which, ain't sayin much dollar-wise but should be a testament towards the desire for people to own one of your pieces of art!

    I'd just look at his website and custom build out the one you want... He mostly posts his super exclusive one-off knives as auctions here. Well, technically they're all one-offs since each one is unique and no two are identical.

    But you could spend as little as I think about $100 to get one of his knives, with fairly nice materials and options that are included as standard.

    For around $150 you can get a classic puukko or Aurochs with really nice scales and probably mosaic pins.

    Either way, ABSOLUTELY get one of his wife's sheaths. The ox hide leather work is top notch and worth their cost.

    Thanks a lot dear brothers for taking your time to support us! We are very grateful and happy that through our humble work we managed to make you happy.

    @Luzster - i am very sorry my dear friend; we always do our best to keep the prices as low as we can but sometimes due to external factors we are not able to do it 100%. In any case i would gladly make a knife for you whenever you will be prepared ;)

    All the best my dear brothers and friends, God bless,
    Bogdan

    @Luzster - hello dear brother! It might have been some maintenance period as it seems that now works ok. Thanks a lot for the heads up! ;)
