She's a beater now!!! Put her on fire duty tonight. Her first victim. Processing. Beauty feather/fuzz stick. Easy as pie with this knife. The right side is the V edge and the left was the convex. I found a little more control with the V as the convex side wanted to bite in. A little practice and it'll be easier. I use this as a match. The stack. Mag dust filed with the LM Wave used to light the fuzz stick (match) and then the stack. Voila! Fire. Some chopping. Didn't think to count the swings but this is a beastly chopper!!! This isn't any more then 30 whacks. After the beating! V edge side Convex side Hit the handle with my baton.
