Handmade Drop Point Neck Knife.
We don’t usually finish to a mirror finish. Of course we will upon request. What’s difficult is keeping the patina. We use layers of tape, cloth but still sometimes we slip and scratch. We end up shining it up. The contrast is great though.

All the big trees are gone
The tallest trees here are 1/3rd the height of the Douglas fir that were here 33 years ago. Still have the stumps to prove it.. They averaged 600 years old. Some were 1000, some were saplings. Clear cut. Nothing against logging, just not this kind of logging. The mills are cutting more now than ever and laying of workers at the same time.
You can see a border of our property and crown land. We have a few spruce.
