Jalcon: Exactly, I'm figuring he's mistaking Sal's signature for the Spyderco logo. I could be wrong, but I don't see what else he could be talking about.jalcon wrote:It's on the other side of the blade.
Hey, no worries man.Laethageal wrote:Wow sorry just realized that what I thought to be bugged pictogram were on the real knife. **** I think I gave a ****load to a local seller and I was wrong!
The first time I saw the logo I'm talking about is there,on second picture :

Seeing the price I knew it was fake and thought this logo was a common mistake when copying spydies and used it as a reference :S

thanks!JNewell wrote:Wonderful post and pics, thank you! And yes, I agree, there are a few things that axes do superbly but for most tasks there are better tools.
thanks! never heard of that type of bird before...we did an overnighter on the same location last weekend and we didn't see any of them anymore.jalcon wrote:That first bird looks to be a thrush possibly..
thanks for the bird id!defenestrate wrote:I'm leaning toward American Robin for #2 bird.
Which is a true thrush.
According to Wikipedia.
Probably all standard American Robins.
(didn't realize Robin was part of the thrush family - I know some birds but I'm far from a bird fancier or ornithologist - just seen some robins here in NC and VA.)

thanks for the id, ken. i went back there last weekend for an overnighter and didn't see any dead branches to try friction fire but i'm keeping my eyes on itkbuzbee wrote:I completely agree. I grew up with it as "tulip" Never heard yellow poplar until a dendrology class in college. OTOH, my wife, who lived only 10 miles from here always called their Magnolia tree a tulip, so tulip may be a locales term that varies? Dunno...
Those yellow polars are very prolific. The seeds "helicopter" like maple seeds but they are kind of barbed and really dig into the soil. I have to clear out about 100 of each from our back wood lot every year... Ugh!
thanks, rodloos! definitely, i'm looking forward to more overnighters in the coming months but i draw the line at only day hiking when it's single digits though, haha.rodloos wrote:Great post again JV! Beautiful colors. I know you love getting out there when the weather turns cold .
I just got my GB SFA in last week, but haven't had a chance to use it yet. Nice to see your comparison.
thanks! good job on that axe and that mask looks like a pro made itfiledog wrote:Great pics, thanks for putting that together. Here's a couple shots of my "SFA". I rehung a Hults-Bruks head of the same weight on a new GB haft, and made a mask for it.
