    Did you see that Cold Steel made a compact version of the SRK? I remember you talking about how the SRK was just a bit too large for your preferences. Just thought I'd give you a heads up. Great vid as usual

    Very nice sheath, and a very practical knife. What about traditional Roman friction folder pocket knives? And the most important question: Is it tactical and does it come in black.

    Amazing how much thicker birch bark is depending on where the trees are in the world and the climate they are exposed to. The bark here in California is no where near that thick and unsuitable for much more than tinder or oil processing. Too thin. Very cool brother! So happy to see your channel grow! You are the man!

    Pardon … would you be willing to do a video showing a closer look at your nice old school "work bench"/ about how your work bench is constructed? there is a youtuber named Rex Krueger who has made some videos about old work benches kind of like yours. He shows how to make one but he gets rid of the parts bin part on the table top. In later videos he makes a leg vice and some other clamping options. here is the link to the first work bench video he made. in another video he makes a "low roman workbench" that works well for sitting on and can use your body weight to clamp down your work piece.

    Russian ingenuity. Necessity is the mother of all inventions.
    I have been studying Russian mechanical engineering for some time now and I have to say they prefer to keep it simple but effective and reliable, not to mention longevity.
    Nice work lars. Now.. can you build us a Kalashnikov…please !!
    Lol ! !

    Great video Lars, filled with practical knowledge about the knife blade manufacture and the strength and working benefits of having this groove in the blade. I also seem to remember something from a dim distant past about these tyoe of blades beings easier to stab with, due to a lack of suction on the blade. Pehaps it was read in a Marvel comic, a fantasy commando manual or even in a butcher's weekly, but I do seem to recall something about this type of blade being easier to remove after being pushed into meat and flesh, or perhaps it was just easier to use when butchering a carcass. I can't claim any real knowledge of anything to do with this, just a clouded, niggling partial recall of a long ago and half recorded bit of information or disinformation. Its amazing how much crap there is rattling around in one head after decades of using it is a sponge, and yet some of the bits, both sense and nonsense, that are in there can become quite abrasive and insistent as they try to find their way out again.

    Nice homemade all-round knife. I would probably not run the stitching around the edge of the sheath as you have done, as it will expose the stiches to a lot of wear around the edge, but depending on how much you wear the sheath, and how much use it gets, it may not become a problem for many years all the same. The copper tubing would probably also benefit from having the edges flared a bit, making sure they stay in place even if the bark should contract and the holes you drilled end up getting enlarged over time. Nice though, and homemade is always so much more satisfactory if made well.
