I took an old beat-up english hand file that was laying around my tool box, and repurposed it as an agile garden/paring knife. This thing will last a lifetime, won’t be offended if you leave it out overnight in the rain, and will hold it’s edge even when doing the dirty work. Made by hand feels good, works good. Simple.

First little knife outta my homemade belt grinder. A minimalist necker. Or a sock knife. Or a shoe knife. Or a tie knife…you could hide this thing just about anywhere. Designed as a SERE or E&E last ditch blade, at almost a 1/4” thick, it would also serve well as a micro EDC option. Just needs a polish and a sheath and I’ll be putting it up for sale.

marketed as a kids toy in the 60s, this thing actually sews. why can’t they make kids toys now this usefully and made of steel?

One thing is for certain

for an inexpensive knife, i’m actually fairly impressed with this blade. i’ve been beating it up lately and it’s doing alright. the rubber grip is very sure and it’s nice and light. not bad. not bad.

took my boys on a little S24O paddle trip this weekend. a little shakedown to sort out our gear before we head into the mountains.
