In a country where white men basically cannot apply for jobs, we did it the rough way ever since 1998 but now we need help. Your help.Bouncing back from Covid-19
I had a good job with a good company and was in Houston, Tx when this happened I left my job shortly after, and moved to my own farm where I started farming. A thankless, not much money, worrisome time and for the last 20 years have pursued that dream with little or no help.
I started writing this blog to write about the Knives I was using on the farm. Hoping to continue in the near future but today…this day I was remembering,
Had a friend ask me about blade steel yesterday and I remembered my friends at Blade HQ have a great chart you can use with clickable links if you are shopping for a particular steel.
Yes we can all be “blade snobs” and brag on our favorite steel.
Enjoy the list and stay sharp my friends

Why does it always seem every knife has a story? Take this small hunter I got a few years ago from some guy on Facebook …well I know I probably shouldn’t have purchased it that way but I did and here’s why I bought this particular knife.
This guy is named Bill Burke and he posted video of the tests he performed on the knife. Test is the official word for what he did but it didn’t look all that official. While holding the knife in one hand and a romance novel in the other and proceeded to saw the book in half. There was no mistaking the genre either …he loudly proclaimed romance and completely cut it through. He really seemed to enjoy it although I can’t say it did the book any good. He seemed to have an endless supply of books and he kept making knives. Over time he had a pretty good following.
I am sorry that I didn’t keep a video of because it was always fun to watch although I don’t condone cutting up books it seemed to make him happy and if he had any trace of hostility it was taken out on a paperback and nothing else.
I don’t really know much about the actual steel used but if you think about it we were in the somewhat heady days of knowing a little about different types of steel. I’m pretty sure the steel is of the 1095 variety I’m not positive though, it does sharpen very easily and holds an edge rather well. The fit and finish is not perfect however it’s very serviceable and cuts quite well. It serves as an excellent EDC. The handle is smooth but I’ve had no trouble hanging on to the knife. I’ve enjoyed this knife for many years but I have never used it to cut a romance novel.
It fits rather neatly into a Rapala sheath and I can wear it on my belt.
I’ll never be a romance novel writer but I like knives and they almost always have a story to tell.
In the words of Herbert W Hodge
Prayer should be the breath of our breathing, the thought of our thinking, the soul of our feeling, the life of our living.
