Re: Hatchets, small axes, anyone?

I’ve heard husqvarna has been putting out quality axes and hatchets intended to compete with other Swedish axes at lower costs but I can’t vouch for them personally. --- I believe Hults Bruk makes one or more for them for Husqvarna... https://www.husqvarna.com/us/accessories/axes/ https://bushcraft...

Re: Hatchets, small axes, anyone?

Hults Bruk Tarnaby...highly recommended. I bought it for the same purposes and it has performed well with very good Swedish axe steel that is easily sharpened. Good balance and easy to use.

Re: Can I ask a knife recommendation?

I have an opinel in my pocket 90% of the time, which is sort of the antithesis of the edc knives I see people looking at. That said, I work in a hospital in NYC now and when I cut an apple up with it at lunch my coworkers are horrified that I would have such a thing. —- And that is such a tame look...

Re: Recs For A First Japanese Natural

(i) I'm looking for a finishing stone. (ii) could be really wide of the mark here, but was thinking maybe in the 5 - 8 k grit range? (iii) I don't know if it would be too much to look for a stone that cuts quickly as well? (v) $200 - $300 mark. My buying preference is "value for money" but would co...

Re: ats-34 vs. aus-8

AUS8 is a mid performance stainless similar to 440B while ATS34 is a copy of 154CM and considered higher performance
Here is a comparison of the composition differences:

Re: What do you think about this grind?

Do you feel the low grind affects the performance of your knife?

Yes...in a positive way. The Anryu's have a good reputation for food separation and release because of this grind.
It looks fine - use it and let us know how it performs for you.

Re: European 8" Chef <$100

Yeah, Tojiro, FKM, and that Takayuki inox are probably in the right ballpark.
