    Thank you all for your kind words. It's truly an honor to be able to restore something that was built by hand over 100 years ago. Next on my list after moving into the house is getting the barn fixed up into usable condition again. My wife has promised our 2 year old a goat and chickens….:frantic:

    Another update for my EDC brethren. We PASSED our final inspection today! After nearly going over our budget by DOUBLE (due to some unfortunate issues with our electrician) All I have left to do is blow-in insulation in the attics and replace a few batts underneath the house and we're ready to start moving in...There have been a TON of small things that have gotten in the way, but we're finally starting to work those out. The biggest setback was finding out there was a main support beam underneath part of the house that had rotted out and was causing some sag....it took three whole weekends to jack up the house, support it, and get a new beam installed....

    Congratulations! It's time to get your kiddoes those chickens now that you're a real farmer. :) They are great, actually.

    As soon as i can get the barn patched up enough to keep the coyotes and weasels out, then we'll most likely get some.

    Well, an update for my EDC brethren. We officially moved into the house this weekend. Man it's been crazy. Still tons of work to be done. But we're in. Here are a few more photos.

    I wanted to share this with everyone here....i've been kicking around the idea of stripping my ESEE 4 and forcing a patina on it....but didn't really want to fiddle with buying all the supplies for one knife.....so I turned to our very own @martin_j001. I had seen some other knives he'd done over on the Jungle training forums and was happy to see he was offering services at a very affordable price to do exactly what i was looking for. He etched my logos, stripped and even polished up my edge for me. Very fast turnaround, Jeff is a solid dude. If anyone else has been kicking around the idea of stripping a knife and forcing a patina......get in touch with him. He's a great dude! This is my go-to knife for kicking around the farm now. In my opinion it's much easier to use now without the coating. Slides through things much easier. The apple cider patina is nice and dark, just like i wanted it....

    Congrats on the new place man, glad you are getting settled in! And very happy to hear you are happy with how the knife turned out! I love how they look once the coating is gone and with some patina on them!

    Thanks Eklipsis! It's a Remora holster, it's currently the only IWB holster that's comfortable for me. The knife was done by martin_j001!
