    It's still probably my Booshway that see's the most bush time. More than capable of trap making and camp craft and yet still has enough heft for chopping and splitting !

    I picked up this used Wohlwend scandi bushcrafter recently.

    It's been getting a lot of use. It's sharp and easy to keep that way. At just under 1/8", it's not too thick and doesn't get hung up when carving wood like some custom scandis and wood-lore clones I've handled. It glides through wood in a very Mora-like fashion, but it's beefier like a wood-lore.

    About 1/8" thick x 4" for the blade, which seems like 1095. The handle is a full 5". I don't know what the wood is, but it's nice.

    How sharp was yours when you got it? Out of all the customs I have bought my compact bushcrafter of Marks was the sharpest knife I have bought to date. Nice looking blade!

    Its a toss up between BRKT Liten Bror and my Aurora. But really I get all excited about Machete's these days. Its a spring time thing for me, time to chop stuff

    Thanks for asking. I'm sure if I bought this directly from Mark it would have been plenty sharp, but I bought it used and there were some minor edge issues.

    If you look at the picture you can see some degradation of the edge around, what I guess I'd call, it's carving sweet spot. It wasn't horrible, but certainly a little rough and while it cut cut hanging printer paper, it got hung up on news print when I was first checking out. When I did a quick test on wood, it also wasn't working the way one would expect.

    I first tried stropping it out on the belt sander with the leather belt, but that didn't work well enough, so I took it to the wet stones. After a bit of work, it is now has a nice zero degree scandi edge and is cutting like a laser. :thumbup:

    Glad to see the Spyderco getting some love from people. I remember how so many panned it originally.


    This is the one I've been using a lot lately

    I doubt it's the Ontario, but I think I've got a pretty good idea of what you have in mind P'Dog.
