    I had to post this. It's a classic. Last year I chopped down this dead pine about 20 ft tall that my wife has been bugging me to do. I had at it with my Tusker. She came home as said, "Oh, you finally cut down that tree. How did you do it?" I told her I used a knife. She rolled her eyes and said I should have known.

    Bear, it took an hour. I stopped to rest a few times. This is not that hard to do with a knife it you use the right technique.

    That's funny. Even though a chainsaw is quicker, it's not as much fun.

    Funny thing is my chainsaw was right there. I do these outragous things purely for testing.

    Hey guys,
    I wanted to give my PSK a patina treatment since I really like the looks of it, and it keeps rust to a minimum. I left it in a bucket of vinegar overnight after removing the original cord wrap. I re-wrapped it with no trouble thanks to Scott's excellent sticky tutorial. Hope you enjoy the pics

    Where did I leave my PSK?

    That turned out great. Nice thing is, you can always redo it if it wears off. Good job on the rewrap.

    Scott, I have never seen those pictures before, awesome. Hahah, I would love to tell people I took down a big tree with my knife!

    IUKE12, nice patina. A lot of the guys over at the Ranger Knives section in KF have been doing that. I was thinking that when I get my PSK, I'll patina just the handle under the paracord wrap so that it can resist rust better if the cord gets wet. Digging the high-viz yellow too, I have that color on my motorcycle jacket.

    A guy on KF "patina'd" his BRKT using hot dog fixin's - ketchup, mustard and relish and it came out looking like it was color case-hardened.

    I love that wrap. The bright colors will make it hard to loose and it just looks cool.

    Scott,
    "Classic?" "Insane?" I'll go with either or both!
    It says a LOT for the knife and, well,... something about the guy attached to the handle for an hour too!.

    Thanks guys. There was nothing wrong with Scott's wrap mind you, I noticed some small rust forming under the wrap, so the cord had to come off. I like the neon yellow, not worried about where I put it down now, although the trade-off is that it shows dirt easier than OD. Good thing is, wrapping the PSK is as easy as tying your shoes

    It's THAT pic of the Tusker sitting on the stump that caused me to get on the list of knives made by Scott! I want my Tusker to be just like that one! And now I need to save up for a PSK and I'll be set. (Well, for at least a little while)...

    That's why I put up the tutitoral for cord wrapping. You can unwrap and hit the tang with steel wool or a scotchbrite pad if it gets ugly under the cord then rewrap.

    Please don't tell us you used the same 550 cord to lace your shoes.

    I like the idea you can change colors or remove the wrap to clean up under it, etc. Good thing for the tutorial.

    I tend toward using 330 climbing rope for my wraps, because it has never failed me, and I can get almost three times the amount in the same space as 550. I also like the feel better. Gonna have to re wrap the PSKs now that Scott has shown the right way to do it... mine looks like it was done by a drunken third grader...

    I've got some stuff that is a bit thinner than the para cord. It has 3M reflective thread weaved into it. Awesome when you hit it with a light, thinking about using some of that next time around, might like the feel better also, nice tip MrCoffee.
