Wow thanks so much, I really appreciate that!
Holy crap those copper scales look amazing!

Oh cool. I was kinda hoping you were building a birch bark canoe but that's a little far fetched I guess, lol. I do like stacked birch bark handles though, I've been chasing a puukko with such a handle for a while but it wasn't meant to be I guess.
They don't sell ready made scales for the Birk at Brisa unfortunately. They only do that if they have some sales left over from the most recent batch but I haven't seen any for sale for quite a while now. I always planned on getting some curly birch and one of those drill guides to make my own scales for the Birk but never got around to it so far.
I'm normally not in to Nesmuk type blades but that one looks really nice, love the scales too. Thanks for the info!
Nice load out. I'm diggin the carbon fiber dangler. What can you tell me about that particular piece?
I got it from that drop site that can't be mentioned a few months ago. It's called Bastion carboneer clip.

Dude, I love that slip ...
I'm pretty sure it's a Garvitium Amulet ... used to unlock chrono portals in the 5th Quadra Colony of Sqrtxmmnt.
But it shouldn't exist in this time corridor ... at least not here.
And here I just thought it was a pipe rest.
Ah, the Enzo birk 75... D2? Still on top of my want list. Especially with birch scales..
I wish I could make a birch bark canoe. I have been drooling over a joonas kallioniemi birch bark knife for a LONG time and just decided to get a nice stick tang blade and some birch bark to give it a go myself.
Making scales for the Birk shouldn't be too hard theoretically. I've thought about making some myself. I figure as long as I can get (or make) a couple nice, flat, thin pieces of material it's mostly then just a matter of proper screw hole placement and shaping the profile... and maybe some careful counter sinking.
I'm usually not particularly drawn to the Nesmuk blade shape either but I saw that Bernard singing to me from across the room at my local B&M, asked to hold it and then immediately knew I was going home with it. It's smaller than most Nesmuks and has a hand-ground hollow grind so it's a bit more slicey and a little less wood-carvey than a typical Nesmuk. Something about the unusual pattern, the fit/finish, and the amazing balance of this knife (and most of Bernard's knives)... I couldn't resist. I've taken it camping a few times and I've been really impressed at how well it performed for small carving tasks as well as making a breeze of food prep. I am quickly becoming an Arno fanboy as I've been wildly pleased with both knives I own from him and the relatively reasonable prices they go for.
Yep, she's D2. I really love mine. I take it to the woods a lot because it is such a compact and efficient carving tool. Not necessarily suited to hard use but it will make short work of carving a spoon or tent pegs or even just clearly twigs off a useful stick. After having mine about 2 years I can confidently say, when you decide to pick one up, have no fear of disappointment. For the price I am honestly really impressed just with the blade centering and the smooth, crisp, easy action.
Thanks, now to find one.. And some cash for it...
