    I finally got enough time to sit down and watch this at 1:00 in the morning. One of the first things I noticed was that you looked a little tired…. but happy.
    I am so glad that you are happy my friend. As I was watching and listening to you try to explain how each firing is unique and had a story, I kept thinking Fingerprint and it wasn’t long before you said the same thing.
    Each blade is absolutely unique in just the mixture of the materials and how they blend together anyway.

    I am really liking that one hunting knife, that thing is beautiful yet very functional.
    Your handles are excellent looking also.
    I am also tickled to see that you now have a Makers Stamp.
    Very nice my friend.
    All the pieces have finally come together.
    Check your Email and get back to me with your thoughts eh?
    Most excellent video.

    If you’re talking about using a blade to acquire the raw materials, then turn them into other instruments, like a bow and arrows or a spear, then yes, true. If you mean other ‘acquisition’ methods, then people would laugh at a gimp in a wheelchair waving a blade!

      They will laugh until you get close enough and stab them… then no more laughter. Maybe a “WHAT THE FUCK.” But, no laughter. And no this nurse did not snort or partake of psychoactive meds, we kept them for you guys and used them liberally.

    I’m such a pussy about not giving the Stasi any reason to detain me, that I don’t even carry a pocketknife. Pepper spray is a prohibited weapon in Queensland, except for the porkforce.

    Unfuck, please don’t go giving them ideas. You ought to see the look of hatred I get from some, when they recognise me as a freedom lover. BTW, Unfuck, regarding your easily pleased customer-to-be for his knife: he recently had an op in Arkansas*, and had tissue removed. If he reduces said matter into ashes, and sends them to you, then you could meld that carbon into the folded steel, thus making him a truly unique blade; one that he can say is just like a part of his own body!

    I’ll have you know that we have some really good beers here in the states. Pretty much any beers by Sierra Nevada or Flying Dog are quite tasty. I prefer an IPA, but in cooler weather I enjoy a heavier beer like Guinness extra stout.

    Dear miss Sandy, I’ve been described by women as ‘a rough diamond’! No, I lie, they just use loving terms, like ‘bastard’ or ‘arsehole’ when talking to me, worse when describing me to each other. I’ll take your word on Yank beers, only seeing the big names sold here. The companies must get rid of their mistakes via export, yuck. Or, it could be like the marketing of Fosters’ as a genuine Aussie beer in the US and Europe: I honestly have not seen that sold here for about 35 years. Nobody bought it, because it is crap. Maybe whoever flogs it just slaps the label on some local brew, depending on the location? Sandy, have you noticed how shy Dok Unfuck is of naming the Asylum’s favourite brews? I think that he is trying to score himself an ad deal first.

    Lol! Yer so funny Unfuck!! Definitely not a material girl! Down to earth, redneck hillbilly here. Shop thrift stores and second hand stores for most of my needs. Grew up on second hand clothes so that doesn’t bother me.

    As for the beer- Yep. Guinness ain’t American. Most of the beer I drink is abv of upwards of 8%. Exception being Guinness which I drink cause I like it’s creaminess.
    Unless I do a boiler maker which ups it’s abv.

    Would love to sample some of your beers!!!

    You’re a beer snob aren’t ya!! Don’t blame you.

      Austrians and Bavarians are raised on Beer instead of breastfeeding.
      So yes – Beer is part of our cultural heritage and identity!
      I did brew my own beer, too but in summertime it was a pain in the neck since I haven’t had any possibility to cool my unfiltered beer which soon turned into some kind of champagne because of it.
      Once you opened such a bottle you were well advised to step back because it turned into a beer volcano spraying three quarters of the content straight upwards.
      So I used the content of those dangerous bottles to column-distill vodka which was nice, too 😄

        I have to give UnFuck his beer due… Austrian and Bavarian Beers are the best beers I have ever drank. I have already contributed some of my carbon to an early youth attempt at brazening two dissimilar metals. Left a nice chunk out of my palm. So Sandy, a redneck, hillbilly filly. My estimation of you has gone up to over 398%. I have to ask why would you consent to drinking Guinness? You know that is the dredge the Brits and Irish scrape off of the bottom of the pee troughs out of dingy, forgotten pubs and taverns out in the semi rural areas of those two countries.

        There’s many German dark beers I tried but most are terrible imho.
        I won’t say there aren’t any good ones at all – especially Bavaria is an awesome exception – but the dark beers further up north in Bavaria all taste awful.
        It’s like with tose Whisky connoisseurs who feel like in heaven when drinking any scotch island single grain stuff:
        It’s a nightmare!
        They all taste like burnt car tires.

    Cederq, there are two quick and cheap solutions for your knife quest, both from Cold Steel. 1. Their Gladius machete, pull that double-edged piece on anyone, they’ll immediately remember a conflicting appointment in the next county. 2. One of that company’s Kukri knives or machetes. That style of knife can deliver a powerful chop, more so than a cleaver, yet slice finely, and deliver a passable thrust too. Unfuck may be able to add some Nepalese flavour to make some Gurkha curry for his carbonizing process. Ask his advice, but stand upwind, all that beer and curry.

    Sandy, our scrub hen, a true jungle fowl, tastes like the finest roast beef when cooked in a camp oven, so I’m told. I have one in my garden. The scrub turkey is popular eating. The plains turkey, or bustard, was too popular fare until protected. Your mallard ducks are a feral pest here, shot without restriction. You need to chastise your Marine for not invading New Zealand, introduced geese and ducks are feral pests with no bag limits, same there with the North American turkey, a pest. In fact, the Kiwis have so many introduced large, medium and small furred game and feathered species, if you live in their smaller towns, you’d spend not a cent on store bought meat. It can be similar here, but the country is harder, so you can’t be as picky for game species, but free, healthy feral animals are there if you do the work.but there are too many predators here for most introduced game birds to be very successful. Hey Unfuck, I’ve got just the creeks and billabongs for you to wade in, to flick your fly rod. Just ignore those ‘dead logs’ floating in the water!

    Cederq, all those drugs you used on patients in the past, must have been absorbed by your system during accidental exposure, and the end result being memory loss. You bragged about having competition to SUBWAY’s foot-long sangers. It is no concern of mine that women reject you, just return to Arkansas. Hillary will bury the hatchet, probably in your head: another ‘suicide’. That is why I advise Unfuck to get paid up-front for your shamanically-made knife.

    Unfuck, when you upchuck (is he a rellie of yours?), there always seem to be bits of carrot in there too, even if you havn’t eaten them for days. However, I admit to eating grains and veges, not much meat. I’ve nothing against meat for food, as I belong to P.E.T.A. (People Eating Tasty Animals), but whenever peruse the butchers cabinet, they get a defibrillator prepped in case I have a heart attack at the prices! Mind you, same thing at the greengrocers too, but the butcher can get away with disposing of the body as budget-priced* minced-meat, with the blood ‘n bone mixture sold for fertilizer. *although plenty of Nurse Sandy’s colleagues will testify that it is prime meat!

      Upchuck? Funny you mention him. Haven’t seen him awhile but can’t say that I would miss his sour personality though.
      I can’t testify your carrot claim. Nothing resembling carrot pieces on such occasions here. But I have to admit that should this particular bodily evacuation reaction happen to me I am usually in no state to observe every half digested splotch, crumb or whatever organic matter that comes along. Maybe I could manage taking a picture of that mess without dropping my iPhone into it – I will send you that photo to sate your curiosity my friend.
