    Picture 14-3

    My Victorinox Pioneer that I bought in the early 80s has been my favorite EDC pocketknife of late. It’s a good size for pocket carry, has a very useful assortment of tools, is nearly indestructible with its alox scales, and is sheeple friendly.

    A Couple New Choppers

    In contrast to the Trail Hawk, the Ontario machete came as dull as a butter knife. In a few places the edge grind didn’t even meet — the edge was actually flat. The parkerized finish on the blade was even and looks good, however.

    Dixon’s Tomahawk

    I bought a tomahawk at Dixon’s Muzzleloading Shop in Kempton, PA about 10 years ago. For the past few years I’ve used it as a garden tool. The relatively thin blade chops through the wood on my property well.

    I founded TFB in 2007 and over 10 years worked tirelessly, with the help of my team, to build it up into the largest gun blog online. I retired as Editor in Chief in 2017. During my decade at TFB I was fortunate to work with the most amazing talented writers and genuinely good people!
