Re: My Blades
Here they are.. I aint got a huge collection but every one has a specific purpose they they are all used for that purpose..
The Gerber paraframe.. My daily carry and used extensively. I have had that knife for almost 5 years and I have nearly sharpened an eighth inch off the blade. I oughtta get at least another 5 from that 25 dollar knife..
The Remington skinners. I bought those on clearance last sept. I really like the handle-less design makes the messy job of gutting skinning and 1/4ing a deer or hog easy to clean up..
The Buck Skinner, one of my favs.. Holds a great edge and has a very comfy rubber handle. I use that one more than I use the set of rem skinners.
The KABAR, Its the 5 incher.. Only meat ive ever cut with that one has been an inch and a half thick porterhouse cooked medium rare. I bought that beauty purely because I have always wanted one.. It took me half a damn day to put a fine edge on that excessively hard piece of steel, but I love it and wouldnt hesitate to use it for anything..
and finally, my big ol Kukri. I bought that one off the SARCO web page about a year ago. Give 20 bucks for it. Its hammer foprged out of a truck leaf spring, has a full length rat tail tang, and chops the hell outta anything youd use a machete for. I actually use it in the boat alot to cut carp up for bait. Gotta keep the blade clean and oiled tho. It will rust.
It takes 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, and 3 for proper trigger squeeze.
The latest caliber or gear is no substitute for experience and skill. Rifles and cartridges don't make hits -- shooters do.
Fact of life:
After Monday and Tuesday, even the calendar says WTF!
