    It's a 'Finning Tank Drill'. These drills were built by Finning using both old parts and newly manufactured components of Sherman Tank chassis up until the 1990s. They are a standard item in logging road construction. They are used to blast small rocky outcrops when making new logging roads and spurs. Over 500 were built.

    Here is a video (not mine) of one in action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=og8sZBi_GbQ

    Now that is COOL! Of course it is probably a maintenance nightmare.... (Excellent knife btw!)

    I posted a story up about a year ago of loaning my knife to a driller and he proceeded to follow through the cut into the frame of the rig...

    It was a rig very similar to that one but made by CME. Basically they build the rig and then mount it to a chassis (truck or track). I prefer the balloon tire chassis because they are faster and have floatation.

    That is my home-made (faux) jigged bone Small Sebenza 21. Me and this knife have a long and very personal history and it is one of my very favourite EDC carrys lately. Thanks for the compliment on the inlays. The full story of this little knife can be found here: http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/showthread.php/1340812-End-of-a-journey-Thee-rustic-olde-jigged-bone-(faux-finish)-sebenza-is-done?highlight=jigged I promise this knife will suffer no more abuse. It's having a very nice life right now.

    Why fixed blade model CRK is that? Don't think I have ever seen one like it. Very nice.

    Just found this piece of driftwood that's been in my family for 40+ years, I remember pickin' it up off a beach on the Stillwater reservoir with my mom as a kid. It's been missing for 30 of those years and it turned up in an old toy box my grandfather made when I was 8.
