Ya’ll Got any more of them shivs?
I bet Mr. HAPPY is happy. He sold his FK2. I have no idea what he got for it, but it looks like others are trying to cash in.
Worth $500 anyway imo
Kinda crazy when you think that next Friday, there will be 50 of them at the sale and lord knows how many in the pipeline for some time to come...
It seems like these may actually be "in stock" at some point...
Go get'em Jo and try to stay dry, it is going to be nasty here tomorrow. I may try to sneak down there and check it out since it's not too far from my house near DFW airport.
Good luck. Dfw is about 5 hr from my house. I plan to be at the texas bushcraft gathering tomorrow.
Men’s competition starts at 10. Ladies at 2:00. Then there will be the 2nd half of men’s prelims. Tomorrow will be the Men’s final.
Is anybody going to the Eugene Oregon knife show today?
If your curiosity is getting the best of you, send me a pm and I’ll tell you.
I hope mr happy is happy. Good guy ive done at least 6 deals with him both ways. I was in full negotiations over that knife with him. I told himi was really after hdfk. He kindly allerted me to the one i bought here yesterday. He has an amazing ability to find off grid knives like a pink g10 tglb or an early 80s busse jerry personally hand ground and handled with an actual bear jawbone.
Jos before bros
According to Nathan, about this many
......I'm literally making thousands of those.....
I'm a bit late to the party ... wasn't around yesterday but wishing you good luck this weekend Jo !
maybe someday they will televise cutting comps like they got into timber sports for awhile years back.
Iirc the main bottleneck cpk experience is with the heat treat
That would be pretty cool. I miss ABC's Wide World Of Sports, where they would show the more obscure sporting events. I'm pretty sure it helped pique interest in some sports that most folks didn't even know existed.
TBH, seeing the pros at lumberjack competitions helped me refine my chopping technique back when I was a cub scout.
What better way to learn form, accuracy, power and efficiency, than watching folks who've spent years perfecting it?
Nate, mentioning Jo being the only female to 2-hit a 1x4 in competition... that's technique. I've never had the fortune to meet her in person, but she's tiny in all the photos, so she has to use technique to develop that power.
It's also why I like watching Dan's chopping videos. His technique is awesome to watch. Using his whole body to generate power (as opposed to folks who only use their arm), and still having the accuracy to hit in the same cut more often than not. Most folks swinging that hard can't hit anywhere close to the same spot twice.
In comparison, it's absolutely hilarious to watch any of the thousands of 'seasoned' YT reviewers, featuring folks whaling away at a downed tree/piece of wood with absolute crap technique (dozens of chops, either completely vertical, or all over the place).
I've never thought about it, but now that you've mentioned it, I have to wonder what PHT looks like, considering they process stuff for many different makers?
Yeah, technique is a big part of it. That and, you know, look at her freaking arm...
They're a big outfit, they do a LOT of work. But our process is non-standard and can't be done anywhere at anytime. There is a specific oven and cryo setup that, when down for maintenance, can lead to logjams.
