    Just got home from the farm and thought I’d share some of my daily knife usage.

    I hope to share more pics as the year goes on.

    Here is my son is cutting up some deer meat he harvested using my old Rapala filet knife. We plan to dry some for jerky.

    Used my SAK to attach lay-flat to the irrigation submain...after cutting it to size with the Blur.

    I will try to keep updating as the year goes on.

    Thanks all and Aloha!

    Decided to make three bamboo light action fishing poles. They work pretty good for dunking off the wharf for bait fish. Used a Condor Hudson Bay for the chopping and de-limping. Kids love using them!

    Thanks for sharing Molokai! What crop in the pic of your Blur? Looks like peanuts... I was stationed on Oahu in the late 90s, really miss me some Hawaii!

    Thank you for the kind words!

    Decided to harvest some ochre for a stew and basil for salad garnish to go with panko fried venison for dinner. Used the Mora Companion for the task.

    I have been debating on thinning out the Mora to a flat grind with micro bevel. The Scandinavian grind is a bit too thick for garden work.

    Aloha 91Bravo!

    It’s purple sweet potato, and I also have some sweet corn patches at the moment (fighting off corn borer; they are feeding on the roots).

    Aloha Hawaii Nei!

    This banana bunch is ready to be chopped and hung. Love a banana smoothie in the morning!

    Used a Tramontina machete. I’ve had this one for a long time (even says Brasil instead of Brazil). I found it buried in the sand at a local beach 14 years ago. Gotta love that natural patina! Great machetes!

    Decided to open a few coconuts with the Spyderco Paramilitary 2. This design works amazing for opening green coconuts. This one was a little to far gone, the water was not suitable for drinking.

    Getting some gear put together to cut firewood tomorrow.

    I am looking forward to testing out the Ontario BushCraft Woodsman for removing small limbs. The Benchmade Griptillian will tag along as well.

    The Grip has impressed me as a “do it all” work knife. I used it two weeks ago to help gut and clean a pig for cooking in a Imu for my nephews graduation Luau.

    It’s funny when your a knife person... all my friends ask to use my knives (because they are sharp and maintained). We all know how that goes!

    Took my dog Phoenix for a run before the sun sets. Took the Spyderco Ladybug Salt since it won’t corrode from sweat.

    I really enjoy H1 steel, it sharpens very easy and has yet to show rust from getting dunked in saltwater regularly. Bravo Spyderco!

    Checking on my sweet corn this morning... this crop is finishing up flowering...brought the SAK Farmer along, it cuts silks and ears well for checking on ear development and ear worm feeding.

    Here you can just barely see lacewing eggs (tiny white eggs on a small stem). This is good and also nerve wracking as they are a beneficial predator but also means that they are laying due to food potential (ear worm).

    In a later planting I am seeing boring worms in the roots, not much I can do other than maybe spray to kill the moth parents.

    Also carried the ZT Elmax, I really like the robust design but the flipper is kinda small.

    Have a great day all!

    Having a quick lunch of papaya. Used the Ontario Rat 1 with d2. Awesome slicer and the new pocket clip makes this a favorite to carry.

    Came home to refuel. I love Old Hickory knives. Very easy to sharpen and inexpensive. The KaBar sheath works great, but you have to be careful as the snap is too long to retain the square handle. I’m considering shortening it and re-attaching the snap.

    Thanks again for the kind words!
