    ~whoah~ :eek:

    I want you to chop a car in half with that. Start one side and work your way through a door, the roof, then down into the floor and frame and on through the other door. Shouldn't take more then two days. I'm being serious here :p

    That's some truly incredible work there.

    Do all you listed above...

    Then carve a spoon.

    With a three inch wide blade you have PLENTY of non-sharpened real estate to grab and manipulate.

    Spread peanut butter on a Saltine cracker WITHOUT breaking it.




    The cracker, that is. I'm sure the cleaver can handle it....or CAN IT??

    Behead a 400lb sow with one swing.... I LOVE the looks of the bolok and really the handle. Looks secure and versatile.

    How about removing splinters?

    Should be good in a drawknife hold to shape staves.

    That is an awesome looking blade. Bruce sure can make some good choppers. Looking forward to whatever you decide to do with it.

    Completely awesome blade Bill......I say chop down enough trees to build a large stockade; with fully functioning gate. Then chop down a battering ram to see how many whacks it takes to get to the center of the stockade.....or is that a lollypop....damn my school house rock upbringing!!

    Get in a furry thong and play Conan and post the video here. Then carve a fork to go with the spoon.

    I just had a blade-gasm. That thing is freaking sweet. I'd love to see you prep a bunch of meat with it, looks like a rad bush cleaver!

    Just send it on to me. You don't need that knife. You don't want that knife. (said in my best Jedi mind trick voice).


    I LOVE it.

    I need one for my kitchen/Camp!

    An edge retention test. :D Bring the edge to shaving sharp and take close up pictures of the edge at the tip, belly, and heel. Then, baton some hardwood, chop some 2x4, cut a bunch of rope, and take more close up pics of the edge and see what it looks like and how it performs after all that abuse.

    Well...the first thought that crossed my mind was to ask you to bring it across the gulf to southwest Florida and help me teach some of these rude jerks around here some manners...but that would likely just get us in trouble. I have no doubts of the chopping power....soooo, I say prep some of that prickly pear fruit with it :)
