by the way: which is the best outdoor knife in every field?hey buddy why do you need so many knives? so called special knives for outdoor, hiking, hunting, bushcraft and survival? That's a marketing gag, isn't it?
>>1512100You don't need a knife to go /out/
>>1512100Do you have schizophrenia?
>>1512166This. You need a gun.
>>1512166Sure. You don't. But they are fucking useful at times. Like, most of the time.
>>1512171Spent the afternoon in the woods and used muh knoife once, to stir muh cappuccino.
>>1512100You need a good stainless knife and a good field sharpener. The ‘muh carbon heritage’ meme is a joke. Get a nice Garberg and a nice Arkansas pocket stone and you’re set for a week or two /out/
>>1512166>>1512168>>1512171>>1512176>suburbanites>>1512183>SS so soft that can be sharpened without diamond based stones and compounds
>>1512187I didn't call a schizo for owning a knife. I called him a schizo because his post was written strangely and disjointed and sounds like the ramblings of a schizophrenic. He needs to take his meds.
>>1512171When did you first start carrying a knife regularly? I did some ten years ago. My parent’s farm had a somewhat retarded horse that used to twine his rope around his neck somehow. One morning while they were away I went to feed the thing and saw it on its last leg with bloodshot eyes and blue tongue, the stupid thing must’ve tied the rope around its neck during the night and couldn’t get out. If I had to go all the way back to the house to get a knife, it wouldn’t have lasted that long probably. Luckily I had a folding knife on me. Since then I never leave the house without a SAK or Leatherman
>>1512187>SS so soft that can be sharpened without diamond based stones and compoundsGreat, I dont even need anything harder. Still better wear and corrosion resistance than carbon>inb4 wipe muh blade b4 storaging it
>>1512192I'm not promoting high carbon blades because they are absolutely pointless garbage unless you're in a desert. And 99% of them are for the "survivalist" market. I plan to buy a garberg but do wish they would offer better steels.
>>1512191Around 2006, I believe. I just came across way too many situations where a knife was handy, and I didn't have one.
>>1512194I’ve cut cordage, did gardening work, chopped branches, dug fire pits, filled fish, skinned a rabbit, dismantled an old cars cockpit (mice nest somewhere in there) and disinfected it afterwards and ate apples with it. wouldgiveshekelsagain/10
>>1512194A "survival" knife should be made of stainless steel, just saying. For the vast majority of applications, carbon steel is not at all necessary.Also, my Mora keeps its edge just fucking fine. Just take care of your knife, and it'll take care of you. That goes for all knives, no matter what material they're made of.
>>1512209Literally all you need. You can splurge for a fancy version, but apart from aesthetics, you gain nothing in teems of functionality.
>>1512209>>1512215Enjoy your severed tendons when you have to use the fucking thing as a weapon.
>>1512222The idea that you'll never have to defend yourself against anything is more cringe.
>>1512166>You don't need a knife to go /out/and with what do you play and be manly?
>>1512225Yeah, I'm sure you'll be fighting off bears, skinwalkers and mountain lions with your 5 inch knife. Not even .1% of this board ever experienced such thing.
>>1512100Depends what you're doing with it and what works for you. My favorite skinning knife is a really cheap thing I got in a flea market that just outperforms any fancier ones I have. Got a nice pocket folder for whenever I need one in general and a gerber strongarm for everything else. Been through a lot of knives in my sixty seven years but that's what I'm using now.
>>1512190boy. an artificial intelligence has written this text. If you' re so intolerant, maybe you should leave the internet.
>>1512230In my area, junkies can be like fucking zombies sometimes. I've even come across at least two of them miles and miles innawoods. Fuck the bears, humans are my problem.
>>1512191european here. this reads like a story from:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AB-gP0Ll1oU
>>1512219>>1512238The sad part is that posts like these probably aren't trolling. They legitimately think knife fighting is a concern.
>>1512209I didn't find this knife ergonomic enough.
>>1512219When was the last time you had to defend yourself with a knife?
>>1512215Man I am still fighting myself to get a horse head knife but they are so expensive ;-;
>>1512100One for filleting fish and skinning small game. One for everything else. I don't see the point, nor have needed any others.
>>1512169Good luck cutting rope and scaleing/cuting fish and other game with yur pee shooter.
mora is gay, end transmission...
>>1512284Yeah, iisakki jarvenpaa are quite pricy, but worth it if you really want something nice.
>>1512242U wot m8?
>>1512219When I what?
>>1512467how long do you need for chopping one log?
>>1512466the handling of this knife was uncomfortable for me.
>>1512183>You need a good stainless knife and a good field sharpener.You probably need a knife of some kind and maybe a way to sharpen it. I use a folding knife and take a emory board that has a buffing side and a regular side.
>>1512100>which is the best outdoor knife in every field?Mora.>so called special knives for outdoor, hiking, hunting, bushcraft and survival? That's a marketing gag, isn't it?not completely. For hunting, you need a wide bladed knife (for causing the lung to collapse on the first stab when dispatching a wounded animal) and possibly a thin stabbing knife (for cutting the spine on a wounded animal - Moras can be used for this). If you want to use the skin, you also need a skinning tool, which is usually a slightly blunt blade with a rounded point, as sharp points cut into the skin to quick.for bushcraft, you might need different knives depending on what you want to do. carving spoons or bowls for example requires a curved spoon knife (or an adze). For rough work, a long, heavy knife or a hatchet speeds things up massively but isn't completely necessary. if you're working a lot with thorny vines, a forward curving blade like a billhook is also a good idea to avoid getting your hands scratched up from holding the vines in place.tl;dr: if you want to do everything, you'll need several knives. If you're just doing simple, non-specialized work, a mora and a widebladed hunting knife should suffice
>>1512494mora is gayyou are gay
>>1512283That's a logical fallacy if I've ever seen one.
>>1512553If it's not likely to happen, why care about it?
>>1512568Because it is likely to happen where I live. Also because it doesn't cost me anything to have a large knife on me. Have you been reading the thread? No? Thought so.
>>1512568>It's not likely that I'll have a house fire, so I don't need a fire extinguisher in my house>It's not likely that I'll get into an accident, so my car doesn't need air bags
>>1512570>Because it is likely to happen where I liveIn Africa?>>1512572>safety=/= weapons
>>1512570Maybe living in a shithole is the problem here.>>1512572Accidents are quite likely to happen tho.But joke's on you, I don't have a fire extinguisher either.
>>1512574>In africaYeah, Africa is the only potentially dangerous place on the planet, right?>safety =/= weaponsNo, but weapons = a better chance at getting out alive if you need to use it.Not carrying something that can be used as a weapon when /out/ under the guise that "i don't need it lol" is fucking retarded. Sure, you might never need it, but it's one of those things you don't need until you do.
>>1512580Dont bother arguing with euros or hippies. It's not worth it.
>>1512584Funny fucking thing is, I am a eurofag. And could be considered a hippie in certain regards.
>>1512580>>1512584>>1512586Only EUtards and zombie katana weeabs argue for fighting with a knife.
>>1512587Also, it's not about fucking fighting, it's about self defence. There's a difference.
>>1512580A hiking pole is far better to use as a self defense weapon than a fucking knoife. Enjoy getting within striking distance.
>>1512593No. Hiking poles don't have a high enough damage potential to function as a deterrent.Also>hiking poles
>>1512593No one is saying a knife should be your first or only method of self-defense. Buy a gun.
>>1512594Say that when you get hit in the face by one.
>>1512169Wrong, you need a flame thrower.
>>1512598You're fucking retarded. Go kill yourself.
>>1512230>skinwalkers>Not even .1% of this board ever experienced such thing.Two summers ago... I, I just, no I just can't.
>>1512596It's even worse. At least a knife is useful for various tasks, a gun, besides hunting, it's just dead weight.
>>1512606Guess you don't need a medical kit then, either. It's just dead weight.
>>1512607You absolutely don't.
>>1512465>>1512284Yes, it reminds me of the great ancestors on the steppes.
>>1512610That's the hill you're gonna die on? Mondo yikes bro
>>1512596For non-Americans or non-ISIS-tier countries, this is simply not a possibility. Let's move on.
>>1512607You don't seem to realize that in areas where guns are not a thing, people are just going to believe you have a BB gun if you produce a firearm. That's not a position you want to be in. No one's going to think you've "armed" yourself with a rubber knife. The thing about defensive weapons, is that they should be able to defuse a situation before it's even started.
>>1512619Imagine living in an authoritarian shitholes lmao
>>1512621American "freedom" is a lie too, just FYI.
>>1512613>he thinks he's anti diarrhea pills and bandaids will save his lifeLook pal if your injury is serious enough then you need medical evacuation and you're better carrying a sat phone, if it's a kids boo boo then you can wait till you get home to treat it.

I like to bring a knife when I go camping because cutting sticks into several smaller sticks is a fun way to pass the time.

>>1512659>capital punishment bad Really weak argument.
>>1512659You also have the right to avoid death penalty by not killing others. You also have to do some pretty sadistic shit to get this sentence, it's not simply kill someone we kill you. It's reserved for like rape and murder and mutilating kids. I'm ok with that.

>>1512668You hate western morals. That's why you live in a literal totalitarian shithole.

Maybe practice some more?>>1512600Flamethrower should be part of your fire making kit. That, along side 5 bics, magnifying glass, fat wood, road flare, etc. Also take shotgun with dragon breath rounds, now have flaming lead thrower.
>>1512100is it sharp? you have the right knife. not rocket science
>>1512476not that long, but the whole point of the one I posted is to be able to support myself when climbing trails. Especially on unsteady ground, that 3rd point of contact does a lot. So it's basically a hybrid axe/walking stick, and apart from being heavier than a regular walking stick, it does an excellent job of both. Plus, it's a very nimble weapon if you need it to be, but that's kinda beside the point. Still - i'd not even think of drawing my knife, when it's much faster to drop the hood from my axe.
>>1512732I'm liking this resurgence of wholesome mems

The vast majority of officer-involved shootings are justified (if sometimes unfortunate).And as far as capital punishment goes, that's not the state taking away your right to life: you yourself forfeited that right by committing murder.>>1513106A lot of it is propaganda (our founding fathers were a bunch of opportunistic businessmen, not great "patriots," and that same class has ruled the country for its own benefit from day one), but I'd still rather be here than in Europe these days (I'd take Europe three hundred years ago, maybe).

>>1514236Maybe knife users should stop being retarded.
I'm trying to decide what knife I want to get for edc that will also be decent when /out/. Was thinking the BM bugout or something like para 3
>>1514305Two different applications, two different knives.
>>1514338In what way? They seem fairly similar in terms of size, weight, price is fairly close. I looked at the bugout in person today and it was a little smaller/lighter than i expected but REI apparently doesnt carry and spyderco so couldnt compare them. I probably would have bought the bugout if they had any available but they didnt so not sure if i want to order it now or not.
>>1514379If all you want is a knife for EDC sure. That extends into any activity. Go with one of the current popular models. If you want something to gut fish, bushcraft, etc a fixed blade is a good idea.
>>1514383I have a Gerber StrongArm 420HC that i had gotten a year or so ago for when I'm camping. I havent used it much but seems to be fine.
>>1514385better if it's not the serrated version
>>1514394I avoid serrated knives these days. I've never really had a time when i wanted serration and i have had times when i had it and wish it wasn't there.
>>1514379A folder unless your just hiking, is not a good knife.A 15 dollar mora companion, will last vastly longer, and be easier to accomplish many tasks with than a benchmade bugout or para 3. The BM bugout is a good edc knife. But the point of EDC knives, is the best knife is the one you have on you. When you are planning a trip you can get the correct tool.
I made this
I found a rotten copper kettle in the woods and used a good part of it for the sheath
>this threadimagine being an american
>>1516630>>1516631>metal sheathdid you atleast put in a spacer?
>>1516649lolnoThat knife is made from a power hacksaw blade, it's 2mm thick high speed steel and it will cut that copper without even getting dull. It's very sharp and durable but a bit brittle but it should do well when batoning
talk me out of getting the Mora Eldris
>>1516861for the same price you can get a marttini, which isn't totally fucking gay
>>1512230Better to have a knife when you don't need it, than not have it when you need it.
>>1516905basically the only thing i do with my fixed blade is feathersticks, all food prep is with my Opinel, so it just seems like a better option then other fixed yes no?
>>1516861I have one. All memes aside it is the most useful knife I own. Not playing
>>1512166Found the British police officer

>>1523559>doesn't have a cork-screwno thanks.
does any of you use that?
>>1512219lolIt's all about technique, how come in Japan the use tanto's without guard, probably because of technique (or because it's mostly hidden and therefore is drawn behind the back, so no need for a cross guard for defense purposes).Push the bottom of your hand (the hand with the knife in it) into the palm of the other hand and then push the latter. That simple.
Possibly retarded question, but anyone know of a knife built approximately like pic related? I have absolutely no use for the thing, but I got a new job where I am literally larping as a 1800s trapper all day and they told me I could where a belt knife of my choice and I love the aesthetics of this blade. I have very few requirements for it, just a wood or other natural material handle and preferably any finish but a shiny silver one. Steel is less important, and I can have a sheath made if it doesn't come with one for free at work. Also since it is essentially a costume knife and not going to be used for much more than a belt weight and cutting the occasional bit of whatever cheap is always good.
>>1512219I've had quite a few fights with my knife in my pocket, but never a fight where it left my pocket. I don't mean to shit all over you, but I am so sick of knife fags thinking they will be some elite knife fighter because of the knife they own. I don't like generalizations, but I will say I've never met anyone who talks about using their knife as a weapon who was actually in the physical condition required for close quarters combat armed or otherwise. A knife fight is a once in a lifetime event if that. Hell the only time I have ever used my knife defensively was when I got attacked by a dog 8 years ago, and it sure as hell wasn't any fancy fucking fighting knife, it was a $15 folder that I carried for work.
>>1525261The upgraded model actually does, also a flashlight too.
>>1523346>all the tasks he has mentioned>machete
How to find out if the knife is high quality?
>>1516861I dunno dude, I had a moment where I almost bought one. But then I held my brothers, and I just felt like "Why the fuck is this blade so short?". Like, what would you use that for that something like a garberg wouldn't do?
>>1527824Bash the blade against rocks several times. If it doesnt chip or warp, its good. If it chips or warps throw it out
>>1523128lmao or buy a companion and grind the tip off. its just a fucking knife not a fashion accessory.
>>1527916yes as troglodyt you see it that way

Rate my old school Mora I picked up off some Swede. I did some research, it’s from a catalog from the 1940’s, and I got it for $50. Cuck probably just sold his Grandad’s /out/ knife. Gonna polish it, tidy up the scandi grind, and re-stitch the sheath.
>>1523660Fuck you it's best knife. Only limp-wristed small handed people don't like it.
>>1528157ha haoh, wait, you're serious...Let me laugh even harder.
>>1528111yep. but their sheaths are made from ultra thick leather. too bulky for my taste.
>>1528142Don't polish it you chode. That's a beautiful 75 year patina.
>>1528218Yeah but they wont fall apart that easy. My Cudememe sheath is one of the finest leather sheaths Ive had.
>>1528194Laugh all you want small handed indoor person.
>>1512209Also have a Frost, passed down from my grandfather
>>1528221Relax, only the edge is getting polished
>>1525553Knife fights are only common in Prison and England. If you aren’t in either you will almost never use a knife as a weapon.
>>1528142>Cuck probably just sold his Grandad’s /out/ knife. Who cares, those knives from that time period are easy to find.
>>1523369I was really shocked that Les put his name on this shit, I expected more from him. Then the bigfoot thing on top of that. He showed such promise, but in the end Bear Grylls put out a far superior knife and is much more legitimately bad ass and capable despite faking a few things for television. The one thing I actually prefer on Les's knife is the place for storing some paracord. The rest is cheap, crappy, pure cheese.
>>1528052You can get them on Amazon for $35.
>>1528656No need to get uppity, pissant.
Any of y'all carry a field strop? If so, what?
>>1529334Nope. Just a pocket stone. Rarely would you need a full sharpening set in the wild, and if you do, you’ve already made some kind of major mistake
>>1529801I would argue that if you need a stone in the wild you've fucked up, period. Whereas a strop is your basic maintenance you should be doing all the time.
>>1529803>I would argue that if you need a stone in the wild you've fucked up, period. Try spending more than a day or two in the woods and actually use your shit. Dc6 sharpener is tad larger than a credit card, so you really have no reason to ot bring a stone.
>>1529809Even if you're "actually using your shit", the majority of wear and tear can be solved by daily stropping. If you unironically need to remove material using a stone after 3 days of knife usage you are abusing your tools.
>>1529811To answer your question from before: I dont use a fucking strop, I use a pocket stone. Sorry.
>>1528407>guess how I know you're a keyboard warrior gearfag who never goes out.There is literally no excuse for the BK2.1/4 inch thick, heavy as fuck, and fucking useless."hah, smol hands" is no excuse. If your knife weighs more than 5 ounces, you're doing something horribly wrong.
>>1530581Is pic related the choice of big brained people?
>>1530742Had one and it was pretty top notch as an etc knife. The V10 steel holds an edge like nothing else. Also light enough that it's my swim knife, no rust issues.Not sure if it would hold up to heavy camp punishment though.
>>1523355Good knife for the $$$
>>1529811Anon, fuck off you stupid nigger. You don't know how long I spend when going out (which is usually a lot more than 3 days) you have no clue what knife I use and what steel it is. So if let's say I used a pos Gerber with their shit SS, after several feather sticks, making a few tent pegs, etc, the knife is so fucking dull that a strop wouldn't do shit at all, yet a few passes on a dc6 will easily have it razor sharp. Not every one is a car camper like you anon, most of us actually use our shit. In the end it's my gear, it's me hauling the weight which is literally 3 oz, if I accidentally chip my knife (which has happen) I can fix it on the spot. So fuck off faggot.
>>1531525Fair point, let me correct myself. If you unironically need to remove material after 3 days of knife usage you are abusing your tools or are using a garbage blade steel.>It's my gear and I'll carry it if I want toGo for it. I'm not saying you shouldn't carry a stone. I carry a small stone too, in case an accident should occur. A stone is just overkill for routine knife maintenance.>Everyone who says things I don't like is a car camper! You're not really /out/!! My cock is bigger than yours!!!gg no re
>>1514236>>1514246so, who won the batonning competition?
>>1529334I thought about gluing some leather on my pocket stone for honing.
Found an old hatchet by a creek while /out/ today. Decided to make a shitty handle for it before I returned home. Don’t know who threw it away or why, just needed a touch of sharpening when I came home
>>1512100I have a small slipjoint knife with 3.25 inches of main blade, a smaller blade for caving, a small " claw like" blade for cutting vegetation and trimming sheeps foot and an awl as big as the main blade.Does this suffice for out or do I need something bigger? Fyi I have a small wood gas stove so I don't need big branches or small trees cut down.
this is what my family is using. my two sons, uncle and his daughter use the same. also myself (dad).
>>1512568do you wear a seat belt in a car? ride motorbike with a helmet? have any kind of insurance? are you older than 12?
>>1534789>do you wear a seat belt in a car? have any kind of insurance?I'm required by law to do so, despite that I often do not wear seat belt. I do have car insurance.>ride motorbike with a helmet?I don't have a motorbike but I never use helmet when riding my bicycle.
>>1512100The only thing I use a knife for is filleting fish. I fish every time I go out. Other than that their not really needed. (Certain circumstances require you to bring one though).
wtf in australia you pay $438.95 for this lil fucker
>>1535463this sounds boring
>>1535647What do you do when camping, tough guy? Wittle wood? Lol
a real man need only two knivesone for woodand other one for food
>>1512666People have been executed and later proven innocent.
>>1512191bongistani here, carry scissors alldayerryday
>>1523353id on knife please
>>1528142That’s nice I like the guard on it
>>1523128whats the difference between a bushcraft, camping, and survival knife?
>>1539337Bushcraft/camping knife would be scandi/low saber for ease in woodcrafting. Survival would be high saber/flat with a micro for durability and edge retention as apposed to the razor sharp edge on a scandi with no micro that doesn't last long. I prefer "survival" though this new terminology only muddies the waters. Flatground knives have been used in Americas outdoors as long as we've occupied it
>>1539337The guy you asked is obviously retarded
>>1512183how long those Arkansas stones last? Thinking of getting one.
>>1539337bushcraft would presumably be for just woodworking and shelter building type things while camping as well as survival would be more cutting cordage and food prep but like >>1539358 said, the guy you replied to is retarded and probably doesnt own any of that gear. >>1539356 is likely also clinically retarded.
>>1540149why don't you register a trip already
>>1528088wtf, i love birch polypore now
>>1512194Nothing wrong with carbon. Literally the only faggots who think that, are faggots who never use their blades, circle jerk over steels and shit.
>>1539356Esee izulaMy kneegrow
>>1533145Nice find, anon! Anything written on the hatchet head? Be neat to know when its from
>>1523559what the fuck is this thing called?
>>1539337none, really. Just get a puukko, and call it a day.
Wait wait wait what?People like stainless here?Why in the fuck?Garbon is much better in every way.What am I missing here?
>>1541506The larpy larpers larping knife.
>>1541607It doesn't rust as easily.
>>1541593This.Or if you have actual taste, then you'd get something like this.
>>1541609You need to completely neglect your knife if that happens.Do you go swimming with it and leave it in the sheathe for a week?
Does this type of knife have any uses when innawoods?
>>1541618What would you need a knife for anyway?
>>1541618Imagine the Russians and Chinese have invaded.Chaos, death and wisespread destruction.You need a vehicle to go rescue that one girl you had a crush on in high school, together you will become a nuclear family and live happily forever after.But the car you find needs a new head gasket oh no what will you do.Well if you have a stanley knife you have the PRECISION needed to cut out a new gasket.Think about it.
>>1541636Good luckt. russians
>>1541654but dude what about the 2nd amendment if goat fuckers in the middle east can rout the strongest military in the history of our species then im sure some fat fuck mutts can stop your helicopters
>>1512658Try go camping nearest forestor go fishing\or go kayaking without license
>>1541657Does 2nd amendment helps agains heavy armodred attacking helicopters?
>>1541661The American population is really just one giant paramilitary organisation.
>>1541593This.Knives are sharpened pieces of metal on the end of a stick. You’ll learn what you need only after using it, so it’s best to get something simple.My puukko.
The greatest meme the fingols ever created was that a puukko is better than a mora
>>1541667So was ISIS
>>1541691I doubt anyone views that as a competition. Of course people will prefer anything they call their own.
stainless steels tend to be soft because they usually have less carbon to avoid forming chromium carbides which would mean less corrosion resistance and also adds brittleness.
>>1541694While they possess similar intellect and temperament you really can't compare 1st world humans to 2nd world humans.
>>1541890>He's paying more than $50 for a knife.
>>1512594A quarterstaff would do you just fine, and you can use it to lean your fat ass on the rest of the time.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHZKHmqa0KYAnd if I learned anything from D&D, it's that a long pole defeats most traps.pic unrelated
>>1541593Fuck you now I'm looking at the horse head knives again.
>>1541610Are you implying my classic kauhava puukko from iisakki jarvenpaa is in poor taste?Nice knife tho.
>>1541942Is this the part where I twirl my mustache and laugh diabolically?
>>1542169I mean, yea.I have a massive hardon for the sami knives that we make locally though, so it's a very biased opinion.
>>1542182Ok, i can respect that. Gonna post something a wee bit different.
>>1512100My EDC folder
>>1542217and my fixed blade
>>1535664And as a status symbol, to show other free men that you are no mere thrall.
remind that the SAK can do 90% of the jobs you need a knife for.a mora can handle 9% of what remains.and for that final 1%, you probably actually need a hatchet or saw.
>>1542218>>1542217why no european premium quality mora?
>>1542237Imagine buying a SAK when you can buy a Leatherman instead.
>>1542237I completely agree.>>1542249Imagine Leatherman was as cost-effective as a Victorinox. Also>european stainless over american carbon
>>1542419yep. The way to Nosal, from Kuźnice (visible on the photo here, together with the cable car.
>>1542170I guess so. Well played Mr. Moriarty.
>>1542282Buddy victorianox uses some of the lowest quality steel in the game. I'm not trolling look into it
Always thought the Anglo-Saxon style of Broken-Back Seax was very practical looking for bushin. Very choppy, want to try make my own one.
>>1542238Was going to but ditched it for good olp usa buck.
>>1542821 the spring mechanism is also pure cringe
>>1523128Becker is trash. They had an unmolested copy of a Kephart and they even fucked that up. Becker=sellout.
I do a lot of bush crafting as a hobby. I used to like big knifes like My KBar BK7. Then I preferred shorter blades that were better for control like a standard mora bushcraft black. Nowadays I mainly use a pocket Knife (buck trio) with a bigger one in my pack (mora classic 2). It’s down to preference, but I always say the best knife is the one in your hand.
>>1542218Mora= gayBuck= Gay........next
>>1543443can you split wood with a cutter knife? without breaking your fingers?
>>1512467What axe is that?
>>1543638shepherd's axe, aka ciupaga (polish highlander axe), aka valaska (same deal as ciupaga, but in Slovakia), aka fokos (in hungary), or baltag (in romania).And if you're asking about that particular one, it was made by Paweł Surdel, aka Paps (paps custom axes and tomahawks on FB).
>>1534747That handle looks pretty uncomfy. I wouldn't use it personally, especially not in winters up here.
