Sheath for my #Iämpedahler waldmetz
 Some two weeks ago I came home from work and, after opening a bottle of beer I realized it tasted like piss. So I thought, that couldn´t be it, made myself a tea and took out the leatherworking tools.  Way late into the night I worked, and yup, I am not ex...

A recent ride... much needed again...
 Sometimes it is outright disturbing... there´s so much going on and on, and work to do in a shitty job and messy voluntary work and stuff and a bike that keeps constantly falling apart that I just seem to be unable to get a regular ride in. But the other d...

Long time user test... Victorinox /Wenger new ranger
 This is one of those knives I own and use for quite a long time now. It rides in my pocket every day, since 2013... for a reason. In the meantime, the corporation had shut down, but the good thing is, Wenger has been bought by Victorinox, and the managemen...

Those stone doors -the legend of the dwarven kindom of the ennepe valley
 Sometimes, when i am at the ironforge, the door is open, and while I always hear that eerie cry of the woods in my heart and in my soul, it is different there.  The light shines ever so brightly, and the woods are beautiful - and they are woods that bear t...

Leaf handled knife on the bench...
 Yap, I love these knives. Made from spring steel, they are made fast and are dead reliable and handle well.  This one is selectively tempered and mildly carburized in the forge. Convex bevel, high to zero...  Some torsion work on the handle... And the leaf...

New steakhouse tanto finished
This is a knife I like a lot these days... made from magical sorcery steel I found in the woods and which contains more than just a bit of tungsten- it is frighteningly sharp. The blade is quite thick, but cuts well enough for a constant taper. Scales are b...

Lo and behold the wonders of wood and water!
 I am deeply grateful. Yes, people tend to complain a lot these days. It´s the weather, of course. When the sun is shining, they complain it´s too hot and the summers were different in ´em days. When it rains, the weather´s always so foul. There are a lot o...
