It is a great knife. I'm glad that it raised a nice amount in the fund drive. Congratulations.

The only serious problem I've has was one day after I mowed the grass. I put the clippings in a big mulch pile. Later, I shot an arrow that went astray and buried up in the mulch, which by this time was beginning to ferment. The point, the feathers, and the nock came loose before I found it. The finish on the shaft also got gooey. It was hot! The mulch pile in summer may not be a suitable backstop. As an aside, in those really hot places out west, does the heat threaten to delaminate bows?

Dang Stic! Your shop looks clean and organized :thumbsup:  I'm envious, I can't take more than three steps in any direction, before I have to go sideways or jump :knothead:

It feels like a lifetime ago.  I had just gotten the bow.  Wish I remembered who I sold it to as this is the one I posted about in the classifieds. First time without a bow quiver and the light physical weight gave me issues occasionally.
Shot this one from the ground at about 8 yards.  I hit a briar vine with the first arrow.  The thing had no idea what happened....curiosity killed the....sika.  Facing me, the Wensel Woodsman traveled the length of its body.  And it still made it 75 yrs.

Oh, Thermacell.  Carry two if it's warm.  Skeeters are as big as birds.

I cut a lot of G-10 by hand with a bimetal hacksaw blade. I'm not doing any complex shaping. Don't know if a carbide tipped blade is necessary for glass. I'm sure it would last longer..... and cost a lot more.
