A few days ago I received a text message from and old online friend (Pete)asking for my home address, we’d exchanged gifts in the past so I didn’t think twice about forwarding it on. Especially after him mentioning he’d seen a “potato peeler” he thought I’d like, I was more than a little intrigued.
Yesterday the postman came, I know because I heard a THUD as something landed in the passageway.
The box was some size and had some weight to it, Loki showed an immediate interest.
It came with a note…
So by this time I have some clue….
Loki is getting really agitated by this point…….
Diesel however is really not interested…..
WOW!!……… Honesty I was speechless, grinning from ear to ear like a kid at Xmas according to the Mrs……
Karda and chakmak…
18” end to end…….
Whilst not hair popping sharp it was more than sharp enough, I had some seasoned birch I was going to use to make a bindrune seeing as the bindrune was intended for Pete’s wife it seemed fitting the first cuts I make with this beautiful blade be for this.
Not only did the weight take all the effort out of the chop it made light work of the shaving I needed to do also.
Just for a giggle a size comparison between my new beast and the ole bastard bushcraft knife I usually use….
