I beat the crap out of my Redneck knife.  Then had to face the music asking Steve to fix it  (He actually offered, truth be known).  I'm still trying to get around my slobbish behaviour with a custom blade.  :P

Lately it spent the night underwater in a swamp.

I'm hopeless.

LOL!  This sounds more like a testimonial to Redneck Knives  :choptree:

I've used mine a good deal and I am very surprised by the edge holding capability it has.  I show it off to friends and they can't get over how sharp it is.  Then I tell them I've batoned with it and carved up kindling on multiple occasions and have not sharpened it.  They laugh and tell me I'm full of it.

That's undoubtedly true, but, so far I've been lucky enough to avoid investing in a decent set of water stones.....GOOD ones of a decent size are pretty spendy for an old age pensioner! ???

That may be true, but we may be able to work something out, I am getting ready to spring for a new set, and there is still plenty of life in my old ones.. Perhaps we can make some kind of arrangement ;)

It took me a LONG time to get a good formula for a good HT, Just as my good friend TrentU here lol! I was sending him blades for months for HRC testing before I was able to nail a consistent recipe. Now, 4 years later I have a HRC tester and just occasionally spot check blades to make sure they are in line. I have a good formula, and I am glad people are starting to see it :)

I beat my 3 to death without reservation. I am thinking about sending them back to make pretty again though. I've rubbed mine on the strop a time or two. That's about all the sharpening they've ever needed.  One of them does need a logo.   :chopwood:

I'm in for one of yours. I've another Bernie blank laying here waiting on me already. I need to fill my knife drawer back up, Christmas wiped me out of extra blades.

There is one in this batch that is one of mine, might be right up your alley, unless you wanna wait for one that you can pick the scales on etc..

I can wait or take one now and another later, not being greedy, am I  :shrug:
I have the scales and I owe you another set for the last favor you done me.

HT is what keeps me humble when I'm playing at making my backyard (mostly file) knives. It's kinda like playing Dr on yourself - you might get the job done, but you're never really quite sure it's done right... :shrug:

I got mine today.  Thank you Steve for an extraordinarily sub-par knife and the "extras".

I couldn't wait to use it so I grabbed a piece of seasoned black locust from my wood pile.

All I can say is "IT CARVES BLACK LOCUST LIKE BUTTER"

And for anyone not familiar with black locust, it dulls out my chainsaw chains fast, the stuff is very hard on tools, but I was getting curls off it with no effort and no change to the shaving sharp edge when I was done.



Upon this a question arises: whether it be better to be loved than feared or feared than loved? One should wish to be both, but, because it is difficult to unite them in one person, it is much safer to be feared than loved.

Subpar my ass.


Thinking ya mean way better than "subpar", madmax, at least I think that's what your saying in the quote, and I agree!
:)

I always thought "sub par" meant better than most, like in the game of golf where they set the course to "par" for the amount of strokes it takes most people to do the course, & if you do things better than, or less than "par", like with "birdies", & "eagles" for scoring "sub par", you are "above the rest", or "better than most"... Not for "sub par", to mean, "sub standard"...


So, thinking the way I described it as compared to golf, Red is better than sub par" ,in my book!
:thumbsup:


Anyway...Looks like I am gonna have to just try & get a knife in the lineup for later with ya, Red. When I have more $$ coming in, to let extra $$ go out.
;)


These are going fast it seems. Pretty good deals for those who are getting them.
:D
I love being out in the woods!   I like this quote from Mors Kochanski - "The more you know, the less you carry". I believe in the same creed, & think  "Knowledge & honed skills" are the best things to carry with ya when you're out in the wilds. They're the ultimate "ultralight" gear! ;)

That one is the Bernie Garland Woodlore blade. It's getting the green scales with white liners, true Bernie Style :thumbsup:

Should end up something like this one, but a woodlore blade

Sub par means less than satisfactory.  I always thought that Red named it that as a bit of "sarcasm" because his knives are very much better than average. 

Sub par is good in golf though.

Well JB, it may have been before you showed up here, it was literally 2 days after we started this place, is when that joke started. I was sent a rather nasty email from a certain forum administrator, in which I was told "It is well known that you steal other knife maker's designs and make them your own, and your fit and finish is not up to par".

It was a derogatory email meant to cut deep, explaining my "lack of success" on another forum. So Ron and I decided that I should change my brand to "SubPar Knives", but I never followed through with it.

Anyway, that's where the whole "sub par" thing comes from ;)

I will say this though, EVERY knife that I made and listed for sale, sold. The only one's that didn't sell were knives I didn't make myself.

And to anyone who did know the "back story" behind "sub-par" let me be completely clear, I am absolutely thrilled with this knife and did not mean to give anyone the idea I was not.

I believe Red calls his knives 'subpar' because of a reference made about the WORLD'S BEST KNIFE-MAKER  :hail: on another bushtype site that will remain nameless. :-X

Round 2 is coming up soon, maybe even tomorrow night (if this ing headache will ever go away)...

This is my 2012 model Woodlore.. Will come complete with sheath and logo etching if preferred.. Only one more of this blade style left, I have since had the profile changed, so anyone who likes the feel of this one should consider it... Sixfooter has laid claim to the very last one already....

   Well, I do remember the term being tossed around here from back around when I joined, but was not in on the reason behind it. Thanks for letting me in on it now. Funny!
:)


   Anyway, I am gonna stick to the golf term for "sub par" as a definition, and what I wrote in my earlier post. BTW...I am not surprised about TradeMarkUSA folks sending you an email like the one you mentioned. Not surprised at all.


Regardless, Thanks for letting me know the "Skinny" on that background stuff, & looking forward to seeing more sharps from ya!

I always got a kick out of that accusation because their official knife is a woodie clone....which would be, let me see.....a COPY??!!!  I'm sure the success here has made them feel like they crapped on a fan and had it all blow back in their faces LMAO!  Idiots!

Sorry Dan, but I trademarked that phrase, so you owe me a dollar if you want to keep using it. 

Now had you said "they crapped on a fan and the turdlys blew back on their faces" I'd probably let it go  >:D

Round 2 is coming up soon, maybe even tomorrow night (if this ing headache will ever go away)...

This is my 2012 model Woodlore.. Will come complete with sheath and logo etching if preferred.. Only one more of this blade style left, I have since had the profile changed, so anyone who likes the feel of this one should consider it... Sixfooter has laid claim to the very last one already....





Looking forward to getting my hands on it too

I always got a kick out of that accusation because their official knife is a woodie clone....which would be, let me see.....a COPY??!!!  I'm sure the success here has made them feel like they crapped on a fan and had it all blow back in their faces LMAO!  Idiots!

Sorry Dan, but I trademarked that phrase, so you owe me a dollar if you want to keep using it. 

Now had you said "they crapped on a fan and the turdlys blew back on their faces" I'd probably let it go  >:D

LMAO....Turdley.... I almost messed myself on that one!

Sweet! I really like the light colored liner with the green scales. Are both knives the same? The pics make the grinds look a little different. Both look great.

Nope, the green one is a Bernie Garland blade, with my handle.
