about the cost of 2 cups of starbucks coffee
Did you respond like this when your buddy said thankyou, TS?
Beautiful man. Very impressed with the birch as well
Yeah, theres a lot of mass produced crap out there, but we still have some amazing sword smiths today, like Patrick Barta, Peter Johnsson, Owen Bush, and many others who do fantastic work. Owning a sword from them will cost you an arm and a leg, but you get a lethal work of art, for sure.

Thank you. I love the birch, and will be using similar pieces for handles in the future too.
If your harvesting your own birch burls and lumber you can also get chaga from the tree as well.
great job. The knife looks pretty legit.
My only concern is that it looks too big and too heavy as an "all rounder" knife. I wouldn't use anything over 10" as an all rounder knife. What's the total weight?
I usually use my Mora as an almost all rounder and a machete to process large pieces of wood that I can't baton with the Mora's 4" blade. I've used the Kershaw kukri 10" as an all rounder instead of carrying the Morachete (thats what I call my Mora/Machete combo) and even that feels a bit big but it was pretty effective. I can't imagine using a 14" blade for fine carving, skinning, etc. not to mention it would be very taxing on your forearm and wrist being so heavy - i'm assuming it is.
Yes, its is a big, heavy beast. Its around 100 grams heavier than the Kershaw Kukri. The Kershaw being about 550 g, while mine is more in the 650-700 g range. This is the size he wanted though. Hes a big dude.
Yes, that knife is both very big and very camp.
Just like its owner.
4 pages in and no Crocodile Dundee reference??? ... I am disappoint.
sweet. forged in fire here you come. best show going.
Lol hell no, some of the challenges they get on that show is far beyond my capabilities. Walter Sorrels had to make a knife out of a pile of loose ball bearings on that show.
