Mackinac Pocket Knife Special

Genuine Cold Steel Mackinac Hunter Knife- New in Box (Item #54FBN). 

MACKINAC HUNTER

Whether you’re running a trap line in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula or riding fences in the Texas Pan Handle, you’re sure to appreciate the rugged handsomeness and extreme performance offered by our Mackinac (pronounced: MAC-IN-NAW) Hunter. It’s built tough enough to handle the extremes of the workplace and weather, and innocuous and unobtrusive enough to carry every day.

The hollow ground blade sports a substantial spine for strength and a robustly sharp clip point that shrugs off abuse that would destroy a lesser blade. It’s housed in a stainless steel frame with massive pivot pins and features Cold Steel’s renowned Tri-Ad® lock. And, the attractive grip is adorned with striking faux stag that will never fade, crack, warp or splinter.

The Mackinac Hunter for sale is the version with a nail nick (depicted as knife on right in photo).
The Mackinac Hunter comes with ambidextrous pocket clips

SOFT HEADED AXES

 

 

 

 

Just this past week a strapping man came into the shop with a large “cutting” axe. A cutting axe is has a narrow profile and is used to cut across the grain of the wood. It had a 31 inch haft (handle) made out of fiberglass. He said that he bought it for around $40 at a Large Box Hardware Store and it was never sharp although he used it quite a bit. He said he understood that you get what you pay for but he was nonetheless disappointed.

 

Looking it over I found out that it was Made in India. Generally there is a problem with some “Cutting” Implements (Knives, Scissors, Garden Tools … AXES) coming out of India, Pakistan and Mainland China (not Taiwan). Don’t get me wrong, any of these Countries can make superior products … if they use quality materials and follow the specifications of the, in this case axe, carefully.

 

The Steel, in this case, was inferior (soft) and could be determined when I started the sharpening. I could start by putting a rough edge but when I progressed to a finer and finer edge, it was lost. I’m guessing that the tempering was not that great. In any case I had to leave a somewhat sharp rough edge on his axe and I think that after a few uses it will need sharpening again!

 

So what is on the Market today and at what price range for the normal person who needs an axe?

Sweden gave us more than Ingmar Bergman, Gransfors Bruk has been making axes since 1902. And they come with a 20 Year Warranty! A “felling” axe goes for about $190. There is a company that imports these axes called Alex Outdoors with the website for the axes at http://www.swedishax.com/.

Look over the FAQ’s at Gransfors Bruk to get a little primer on what type of axe … size … uses and see what you need. http://www.gransforsbruk.com/en/faq/ Or do a little research for yourself. An axe should last a lifetime unless that is if you hang out with Big Blue Oxen!
