    Here's some of what we have kicking aound the bourbon cabinet. Been sampling some of the inexpensive wheaters, just finished off some Larceny as well, good stuff.

    Grabbed a fresh bottle of Old Grand-Dad too last time I stocked up, as it's an old stand by. Bit of trivia I didn't know until recently is that the "old grand-dad" represented on the bottle is none other than Basil Hayden.

    Much as I enjoy tequila season, it's good to be back on bourbon.
    Bowman Brothers is the lubricant for tonight's sanding adventure.

    I was easily spending $10/day or more, six pack and a few shot. 120 days = $1200, enough to get a gladius at a reasonable price. I got no beef with drinking I just couldn't handle it. Increasing my knife budget was a good motivation though!

    Yes, Sir! Those two saw the work load yesterday. prepping firewood for some upcoming parties. The Rucki was useful for the smaller, dried limbs. Very easy to chop them into smaller pieces, especially since it feels much lighter to swing than the Chop. when it came that any substantial wood (3"-4"+), the Rucki just didn't make the cut. Most attempts at splitting with it caused the blade to bounce off the wood. Could really only sink it into the corners, like in this picture. https://m.imgur.com/jhXIev1?r While extremely satisfying, not very useful for this task. I'm sure it will help with clearing work, and other jobs more suited to a machete. We were going to attempt to batton through a larger limb, but Mother Nature brought the rain. :(
    The Pork Chop was the king of the day. It went through what I estimate to be a 6"~ limb in about five minutes. I am admittedly not the most skilled, nor efficient, chopper out there. Someone else could have gone through the green wood much faster, I'm sure. All in all, we had a blast.

    About to slow sip some Rebel Yell Small Batch Reserve while fondling my grab bag BG EPD in tanker grey and bruiser grips. This is a sweet blade guys. I wish it was INFI, but I'd be lying if I tell you that I'm not intrigued by this blade the more and more I fondle it.
