Skookum Bush Tool
#1
After waiting 3 years and 5 months my Skookum Bush Tool was in the mail this morning. Very nice knife. It feels great in my hand. It came shaving sharp.

It is a great blade! Did you get it in O-1 or 3v? The sheath grows on you after a while. Be careful, it is a razor.
Addictive knife buying isn't guided by logic.

Its probably my age that makes people think I am an adult.

Its a heavy knife, but so are military tanks!
Message of Insight and Unity 

We go into the wilderness to fulfill our hearts and empty our minds of life's garbage.
The gear we leave behind and the challenges we encounter, 
Are methods we use to cleanse our spirits.
Of Survivalists and Bushcrafters, Primitive Technologists too, we are one.........

It is the wilderness within, we strive for first and always.
Not everyone can have a cabin in the mountains.
The thread that connects us, is fine like silk and strong as steel.
Together, the song of the wilderness is the song we sing!

"And can I say something else?"
Bushcrafting is "doing what you want to do." 
Survival is "doing what you have to do"
Primitive Technology is about all of the above........

I had one when they first came out. Congrats! I think you'll like it. As with anyone's interpretation of the perfect knife, it does not match everyone else's interpretation. Find the ways the blade shines and match them with the way you use it. I'd be interested to see how you think it stacks up with your other bushcraft knives.

$320! on EBay
A fellow could travel from Los Angeles to New York by Greyhound bus, and have a weekend in a Harlem hotel for that price!  Tongue

$320 is a deal if it's a real SBT  Cool

I picked up one in 01 some time back, the SBT fits my hand very well, the scandi blade has done the work I've asked of it, I think I am on the list for one in 3V but I don't really know......maybe I'll get an email  too in 3 years or so...

Enjoy the SBT!  Always fun to have a new knife to put to task...

This is true. But for all but one week of the year I never leave Montana. I live in a very small town in the middle of a ranching valley,with a mountain range to the west,and a mountain range to the east,so you want a good knife at your side.

As an aside,7.62 failed to mention"maybe the  most appealing  valley in Montana" just FYI.
