    Yes they are. As nice as mine is, I'm going to use it. I have full confidence in this tool and the warranty behind it. Think about how hard some push their moras, and some of them are on 2mm thick.

    I know! But Moras aren't nearly as nice! It's all psychological but it gives me excuses to buy more. :D

    Thank you. My original obsession was with ironwood, though now it's expanded to bog oak, and of course osage orange. Oh and about 5 other materials as well.

    Ahhh...but Bob knew this, and hence I caved. But I do so love my Ironwood knives.

    Ironwood is an elite material. Tough as hell and beautiful contrasting colors. Tony's new BF has some of the prettiest grain I've seen.

    Bushfingers are not meant to open nuts, just sayin'.

    I know, but this is the Bushfinger thread. Start a Handyman thread and I'll put up the same post. ;)
