All right so first off a hot field Paul as I've had this knife for a long time and haven't been able to make a video about it two reasons I've been busy and actually I had footage of the knife but my computer was all messed up and figure out how to load videos for the longest time turns out it was very easy I figured it out today anyways so the.
Footage I post later on after me talking here is actually shot a couple months ago I mean talks there's no snow on the ground but I think it's good because now I can tell you my my real opinion with the knife had it for like I said a few months now it's the Green River Shirley Green River and I beat the crap out of.
This thing it's taking place of all my other knives I use this way up way more often 5/32 thickness I can't remember how long it is but it's a good four and a half inches if I'm mistaken is it'll correct me I'm sure a brass pommel and bone g10 scales really like the knife I like the fact that the 5/32 is just a bit skinnier than the 3/16 and like I.
Said it's a beast ah now if you're if you're ever going to order on a from is and I should learn this long time goat I've been trying to get by and just use another sheath slip is a Brian Andrews sheath it's a really great sheath ken gave it to me it's a really nice but it's to sit fit the Green River very well obviously like.
Just falls right out of it so when I came home one day I actually dropped this over the sheath and landed on my concrete porch and I dinged up the edge pretty good I just did took is his advice with the the sharpening and I took it down a 400 grit and you can't even tell that I didn't get any more obviously you can't see it in here.
Either way but yeah so it sharpened real real good and it's back to hair shave and sharp so it's another good aspect of it but so here's the the video like again like I said after using it for two and a half once this is the real deal I don't want to like the five thirty five thirty Seconds thickness it's a tiny bit smaller than the three.
Sixteenth as you guys know I kind of like the thinner blade a little bit I like the longer blade aspect of the green over to this Oaks that I have is pretty dry dead standing all the bark was removed already so it's been dead for quite a while yeah the extra extra length really comes in nice when your baton.
I think this wood is overly thick at all but it's just I like the extra length trusted Green River some of those curls are so fine I could spark that right there with the Ferro rod and that is the convex knife so I'd like to make a bunch of shavings like that like those fine shavings and then after.
That just take off the eggs like slivers of wood almost it's not really necessary to have them all fine like that and in my experience in my preference like I said I'll do it a few of those but then mostly big ones I'll normally do the fine ones at the end and keep them for catching the spark right away and then just throw handfuls of the shavings like.
The splinter shavings on what I really like about this knife and the Gasconade but this one takes it a little bit further is the pommel obviously so I can put the wood down and bury the tip right into it to split it but also the curve up at the at the the tip of the blade here so I don't have to go directly with my tip right in I can now I do that.
Though but I can also put the the curve in all right if you're worried about your tip which on utterly it's not really a worry one second my flatten this one put the curve in but on it that way to split it or like I already said right with the tip so that's what I really like about this knife the blade geometry and the.
Pommel the pommel just takes it one step further and that's the reason that I wanted to greenriver my gas contains my favorite knife well it's hard to say now but my guys can it was my favorite knife up until I saw the pommel now you can get gas grenades with pommels on them I'm sure they'll do that for you all the times when I'm batana my pieces if.
They're not big enough or they're not too big I'll just use in my hand and finish it by a push cut this is a show it's very straight brain nature anyways but it's a work with oak maple anything that splits relatively easy I don't know if you'd want to do with a birch or cherry I know those kind of tend to split off splinter.
Off I do have my axe here I'm just using this knife like this for fun after all that's what we come to the woods for right fun I do anyways
