    Decided to give my sharps a once over

    Have not started yet here, but here are the sharps. There are more but these are the ones that see some use now and again :-)
    Just felt the need to show off again, lol

    From the top:

    Axes, from from the top:
    Hultafors felling axe Hy20
    Wetterlings Hunter's hatcet #115

    Fixed blades:
    Knivsmed StrÝmeng Stoura Niibi (9" Leuku) (On the left)
    Enzo Hunter O2 steel, curly birch scales. (Assembled by myself)
    Geilo Rover scout knife (my grandfathers belt knife)
    Mora #106 whittling knife (found in the shed and restored today)
    Mora #120 whittling knife
    Brusletto balder (I used this as a neck knife for a while, mainly as a scraper for ferros teels and to cut open hot dog packs, lol)
    Mora 911 carbon blade (my favourite whittling knife as the grip on it is fantastic for my hands)
    Mora 2000 stainles steel. This is my fishing knife, as it is one of the few stainless steel knives I own, it hols up to salt water well)

    Folders and multitools
    Opinel #8 Carbon steel (this was a gift from Jakob on the forum)
    Opinel #8 STainless steel (this one now lives with my flint and steel fire kit, as the carbon version started to rust in there)
    Leatherman Supertool 300.
    Victorinox SWISSTOOL SPIRIT ratchet multi tool.
    Wenger Ranger grip 178
    Victorinox Compact

    That concludes todays knife porn, K.I.L.U edition.

    Victory awaits the one, that has everything in order - luck we call it
    Defeat is an absolute consequense for the one that have neglected to do the necessary preparations - bad luck we call it

    So my sharps.....

    Top left, my small forest axe, as I generally camp from either a campervan or canoe weight is not an issue, not that is heavy. Not too big not too small love it.

    Bottom left, my Mora (its the thick bladed version) and a nice leather sheath that was a gift, gets used a lot.

    The above are the two tools I generally take camping.

    Going right we come to "Mike" a heavy bladed Brazilian knife, great for chopping not much else, I have had this knife for nearly 30 years.

    Next a nice Buck sheath knife, "my wedding ring" yep, don't have a ring I have a knife, nice size, good in the hand. I was mortified when I snapped the tip off. To scared to take it out and use it these days, it's far too precious to me.

    Last is my little Axe, more of an impulse buy really the idea was to replace "Mike" with something less "Rambo" replace by the GB axe.

    pedal five hundred on a bicycle and you remain basically a bourgeois;
    paddle a hundred in a canoe and you are already a child of nature."

    I like sharps, and its always nice to have a sharp tool, (a blunt tool is a dangerous tool but a sharp tool is a good tool).

    I have a Hulatafors axe, an Enzo Hunter in D2 that I assembled my self and an Opinel 5 and 12. I also have a Laplander saw. I'm not really a fan of anything too Rambo like or Crocodile Dundee. A lack of crocodiles and Spetnaz Soldiers in the woodlands near me means i don't feel the need to carry weaponry like that. It seems that this site attracts nice people who don't use being outdoors as an excuse to tool up for war but carry a useful small knife for little cutting tasks. My adventures now seem to centre around going out on mountain bikes with my son all day. We just need an optional and ferro rod to light either the white box stove or the wood gas stove so we can have a hot lunch somewhere before heading home. But he's learning how to handle a sharp and importantly how to respect it. Luckily my daughter's school has a bushcraft week which I think is so important. I've bought her a pink mora companion, ferro rod, compass and she has my summer bag with a bivvy bag and a tarp to take with her. Hoping her existing fire lighting and navigation skills will stand her in good stead for the week. She's also eaten wild garlic and dandelion before and is an expert forager of wild freshwater muscles. Sorry gone off track a bit, just being a proud dad
    Infamy infamy, they've all got it in for me.

    Thanks, and as a fellow dad it it gave me a smile. Looks like you are on the right track with your kid :-)
