    Maybe it’s the thrill of finally getting a grail knife, but the HDFK is literally everything I wanted it to be. It feels great in my hand. Very balanced and large without being needlessly bulky, like a light heavyweight fighter. I’m putting it to work this summer and I can’t wait. Going to try a thigh ride with a firekit.

    ^ Enjoy it @Box_Opener. Spot on description of the HDFK. Sounds like it will get put to work this summer.

    Why don't you own an HDFK - probably for the same reason I don't own one either: neither of us have bought one yet? ;):D

    It is a nice looking knife! :cool:

    They cost money. I have not yet found an infinite supply.

    I usually use a chopper when I clean turkey because they're a big ole heavy bird and a chopper just cleaves so well. That last turkey I wanted to try the HD model of the field knife, much smaller than I'd normally grab. I shouldn't have been surprised, but it caught me off guard when it sailed through those thick legs they have. Perfectly clean cuts. I've chipped 52100 and another maker's 3V on turkey bone, although I can't remember having chipped INFI on turkey bone. This HDFK performed beautifully and there was no edge damage either seen or felt. The HDFK is dialed in.

    I understand that. :thumbsup:
    Only the federal government has an infinite supply of money (especially lately). :rolleyes:

    Been meaning to post this for a few weeks. I've been easing back into more bushcrafty type activities when I have free time.

    The ferro rod is from @Sam Wilson and I'm really liking it. Very well made, lots of fun to use.

    And the HDFK probably says more about itself than I ever could...

    You should ASAP. They are only getting harder to find and more expensive. If you get a good deal, and don’t like it you probably can resell it quickly without a loss. I bet you keep it though.
