    Great post! Love the ESEE lite machete. Love the condor 12" bolo a bit more, but the ESEE is right up there. One of my buds received a becker/esee necker hybrid - it was sweet! Looked like a great time. I pulled a tick off my but from this weekend and am dawning the steroids to the poison ivy pimples on my legs. Awh, summer has arrived!

    thanks! heh, a lot of the surrounding areas near the shelters are picked so clean i feel like i just struck oil every time i go to this specific spot (which is off trail). last year's freak hurricane did remedy that though since there's tons of downed trees everywhere that should be dry enough by this fall.

    thanks! i caught two ticks on my pant legs and another on my sleeping pad last month when it hit a high of 75° f but not on this trip where the high was in the mid 50s. i think the sweet spot is around 60° since at that temp or below i don't see them and mosquitoes.

    thanks, ken! i actually prefer the ontario 12" cutlass machete or cs kukri over the lite machete now since i only do light chopping nowadays/do more fuel prep for the emberlit. tick off your butt - too much information, man...too much

    The Izula 2 bridges that gap. It's the smallest "full knife" I've used. Not to give you an excuse to buy another knife or nothin'.

    i had an izula 2 and it's indeed a big step above the izula/eskabar but i just kept reaching for my spyderco bushcraft all the time. for pocket carry or food prep at camp i always preferred my military so it was barely used after a year and i ended up selling it to a buddy. before the eskabar i had no beckers anymore (nothing really fit in with what i wanted/purpose) but i'll always be a beckerhead and want to show my support (beckers got me started on fixed blades) so i felt bad not having any, hence the eskabar

    as for the spam, this kind might be even more repulsive than the electronic version to most people so click away at that triangular button
