    Fun Bent Chopper!

    I can't seem to find my personal chopper. So, when I was moving some knives out of my closet (Tornadoes were being threatened and my wife didn't want to be impaled.) I saw the knife that I chopped a couple of 2x4's, cut some rope with and bent 90 degrees at the ABS School.



    I then figured I could have a new chopper really fast! So, I went out to the shop did a little unbending and decided to do rubberized paracord for a quick handle. I am excited to start chopping stuff and see how the rubber holds up.

    I like the rubberized paracord on this... I'm curious to see how it holds up as well.

    Hey allen I got a lot of brush down here if you want to really give it a good work out. With that rubber handle you should be able to clear at least a half acre before your hand gets tired. GOOD LOOKING KNIFE have fun with it.

    Thanks guys! It is a pretty fun blade and has worked well with cutting branches and soda cans. Now I guess I need to get started on a blade for the official ABS test one of these days. This one did well with the tests and even did well with being unbent.
