Hi Ian, I think the term 'devils club' is slang. That's all I've ever heard it called, but I believe it is some kind of thistle that gets dried out and brittle late in the year. It's really not too bad if you're paying attention, but if you inadvertently come into contact with it, then it usually breaks a bunch of those little brittle spikes off in you.

On the snow, you never know about that country for weather, and it's best to go well prepared. Luckily the weatherguy said it would be clear and sunny all weekend. Thanks weatherguy!! grin

Thanks RPN. Yes I did a little grinding on the spine and then thinned out the edge. It shortened up the blade a little bit but i like it. Just a nice little slicer that still feels solid.

Great buck, HK. cool

A good sharp knife certainly makes an easier job of it.

See.... with my luck that buck would have rolled and/or slid right to the bottom, and camp would be on the high side. smile

AMEN to that one, Ian, especially the breed we used to ride- had legs shorter on one side than the other so we could set proper on the steep hills. smile
