    I used the MC to bust up some fairly knotty wood this las weekend, it performed flawlessly- like always.
    My Wife wonders why I whoop on this knife so hard, she asks “ wasn’t that knife expensive “. I tell her “ Not for what you get and that it’s worth every penny “. I also told her that “ the knife wants me to “. Just so you guys know, that’s a quick way to get out of a conversation about how much knives cost.
    I followed that up with a fire and a glass of wine for her, then she saw the value in it too;)

    If she asks again I’m just going to just keep smiling strangely and creep her out, it is almost Halloween:) 645F6683-00BB-413D-8C0F-96DD952E5423.jpeg 65654384-D9C6-4D47-8992-5FD7D3DE5EB7.jpeg 74633985-C7DB-4189-8142-2C7AD0AD2571.jpeg

    The secret is to have enough knives that she never notice one more. It works on guns too.

    MC running the steep slopes at work today. By far my favourite blade CPK has made (might be time to move the HDFK along!)

    One of the more underrated pieces we've done. I feel it's probably our overall best chopper.

    Sales were always somewhat slow. Once the existing blade stock is depleted I don't think we're going to revisit it.

    It is unfortunate it didn’t get more traction particularly with how popular the LC was.
    For the last 8-10 weeks or so I am getting around 100-800 chop/swings in a day with this one. Honestly my only addition or modification would be a swedge as it acts as a defensive item (albiet a backup).
    Other than that it is my first tool to grab when loading my pack up for the day.

    Man if you have stock of these we should chat. I am desperately wanting a backup just in case; not of breakage or anything but always a chance it gets ripped off on a sled/atv/somewhere in the hinterland.

    I would like to get in line if you want to sell the HDFK. ;)

    It isn’t a pretty one anymore so you may want to hold that thought!

    Some days I take the MC, HDFK, and FK out to the field. Because hey you gotta enjoy your job while you are there right!

    I gotta ask, did you try the BC?

    I went from LC to BC, skipped the MC because money and I struggle with choppers as a general rule.

    Edit: I’m always searching for the right pair of tools. Like a FK2 and an axe. Or a HDFK and a folder... so many choices.

    Nope, never tried the BC. The 10” length and 7/32” stock thickness is about as bulky as I wanted to carry.
    That and the profile of the MC has more of the point centred up vs the HDMC and BC (not sure if that makes sense?)

    Also the lighter in hand-ness or I guess the sweet spot for cutting is great for brushing out trails and getting ATVs/sleds through Alder and Willow’d-in roads. Like a machete but that can actually cut woody stemmed plants and brush

    So where exactly would you say it excelled VS the LC other than the tip geometry?
