What's up, folks?
Been a while since I've been here, thought I would stop by and check in.
Just started my last semester of undergrad, and am considering grad school. Life has been busy but good. Classes and work and timbersports stuff plus the extra curricular (;)) stuff keeping me pretty...
Congratulations on making this decision, John.
Realizing stagnation doesn't always happen, much less being able to break through it, and I have no doubt you will make the most of it. Going to be really interesting to see where you take Redmeadow Knives from here.
Nice! What are going to do with it?
I am rationing my remaining deer meat pretty strictly, I may have a chunk of loin in there somewhere. Debating on turning the last couple packages of ground into some salami to make it last a little longer. Still a couple months until a season opens up here.
Hey John, I don't want to clog up your new thread, but you may want to change the title of it to garner more attention. There is already a thread titled "Why?" on the first page and it may cause some confusion.
Interesting topic, John.
In my opinion, large knives are simply a novelty for most. Realistically, a folding saw is usually more efficient for cutting wood and and an axe or maul is better suited for splitting it.
I am likely in the minority in that I spend a fair amount of time in the woods...
I can't really say I am addicted to anything at the moment.
But when I settle down and have a decent income, I will probably start acquiring, refurbishing and using old wood working tools. Especially old planes and chisels and such. Something about those old tools that is appealing to me.
It'll only get worse as they get older, YC. The amount of parental obsession in their children's sports gets pretty crazy at times. I understand giving support, but at some point I can't help but wonder if the parents are trying to compensate for their own shortcomings by living vicariously...
