    I have been admiring those AdV Pocket Butchers for a long time. I always enjoy unusual slipjoint designs and now I finally got one! Thick D2 steel wharncliffe blade with long pull, handle with rosewood scales and fluted bolsters. The fit and finish is not as good as I would have expected it on this level but those are just small, aesthetic flaws. Overall it feels like a good EDC knife and it really stands out from the other knives in my collection.

    That butcher seems like a perfect addition to your already-impressive rotation. Congrats on another beautiful knife!

    Thank you! It has been on my wish list for a while. It's exactly the kind of blend of modern and traditional knife that I like so much!

    I had some bad luck with the boots I bought recently so I finally decided that it was time to man up and try some Red Wing Heritage boots. This is the Blacksmith model, thick oil tanned "copper rough&tough" leather. They have a cool rugged look already out of the box and I'm sure they will just look even better after a while. The first day was extremely painful but I'm told that they are super comfortable once they are broken in. The Fellhoelter TiBolt and the Three Rivers Nomad are old but the SCAM Design TorqBar is new as well! :D

    Take it from a guy who's hobby is leatherwork and has traversed more Ridges and Mountain Ranges than I care to remember , you need to break your Boots in .
    When I lived another life we would fill our new boots with water and leave them overnight , by morning they were empty of water , next night the same thing , but the following morning we would put them on , lace them up and wear them for the whole day and into that evening , maybe 12 - 14 hours .
    Those boots were now yours and you could walk forever in them .

    Fast forward twenty years and most if not all boots now are lined and padded internally . There doesn't seem to be the break-in issues us old fellas used to experience .
    Nice boots by the way .

    Ken

    Thanks Ken!! I knew what I was getting into when I bought these boots. I did quite a bit of research before. I was actually surprised that they did not feel as uncomfortable in the beginning (and the left one is still actually quite OK). I just made the mistake of taking them for the entire day right away. After a couple of hours the right boot started bothering my ankle but I had to keep them on until the evening. I'll give my feet another day or so to recover, then I will go on with the break in process a bit slower.
