    Deluxe Hurley Creek in S30V showed up today to add to my JK burlap collection. It's a pretty neat little thing. Also got a few well-priced JK's from the BF exchange that are also quite nice.

    Today's mail call

    That Hurley Creek with the handle scales looks nice, and updated steel, what a nice combination. Wwhat was the blade thickness on that one?

    I don't want to sound too stupid, but what do you use the bottom, mini-cleaver one for? Is it more aesthetics or is there something that design is really nice for? I'm trying to learn as I'm a big fan of the sheepsfoot but the cleaver isn't quite a sheepsfoot. I think most people I've asked haven't used theirs so with this not being saved in a safe, I figured you probably have more experience with it than anyone else I've seen post on the forum with one.

    Only thing I can come up with is they look very non-threatening. In Michigan, having the lack of a point means I can get away with all sorts of carry and sizes since it's very obviously not a stabbing weapon.

    LOL, good use, especially if you drink a lot of coronas.

    Put the hurley creek to work carving out a potential design prototype for an EDC model. I couldn't decide on a tip shape, but this one feels nice so far. Slimmer than the HCL and hunter. Might have to show off the grips I was trying to account for with the finger groove and rounded spots on the spine. Not sure if I'll take it anywhere but it was fun shaving up some oddball cedar pieces I had around with the hurley creek lite. Turned out to be a fabulous carver.

    There's just something about cleaning up meat with a hunting knife that's satisfying...

    I try not to be too anxious and force patina on my knives, but I have starting being lazy on the cleanup after slicing food, like apples, to help the process along. This guy sits on my desk at work now and cut out the soft spots on my apples today (hate mushy apples unless it's apple pie or apple sauce).

    Do you just wash it up with soapy warm water to prevent food contamination?

    Absolutely, I'm a food safety specialist/food microbiologist by trade. Also knowing this, limited amounts of bacteria are not too much of a concern since it will either go straight into the pan for cooking or get frozen, limiting the effects of minor contamination, key on the minor.

    Chemical/physical contamination is always my main concern with a new knife though since I don't know what was used during the making of the knife that could contaminate my food. I also don't trust leather sheaths as they are essentially an uncleanable surface so at least a sanitizer or alcohol wipe between the sheath and food should happen, especially if there will be no cooking involved.
