We stumbled across a flock of turkeys I figured I would share.

Nice turkeys! It's always fun to stumble upon wildlife, especially when you can grab a picture.

Tell us more about the knife you are testing out, and how it performed.

I made a quick video but I need to get some more practice with it and get something stiff to chop against as each impact was just making the sapling bow. I also want to test it with some finer tasks and possibly some dry wood working as well.

Thanks for the vid.  That's my kind of knife man.  Believe it or not  I carried a Mora #2 for years.  LOL.  Now if I'm going primitive it's a big chopper (Yeah, the current fav is a monster kukri) and a Opinel 2 dedicated for food prep.  If we're on the water, a fillet knife.  Haven't been backpacking for awhile but my knife choices would change.

I was down by the treehouse last week and a flock of maybe 12 came to visit. They are really neat birds. Fun to watch. Cool blade too.
