Fishing and DIY needle

I was fishing with my family and one friend and we got few quite big lahna-fish (Don´t know english name, but latin: Abramis brama).

Nice sized fishes

Later when we thought we have enough we put our smoker container on fire and smoked those fishes...looks and smells delicious..

Well smoked fish with beautiful golden color.

We cannot wait anymore, so let´s eat..

Sure, it was delicious!

Fish had quite big and sharp bones so I got idea to try to make needle out of it. So I started to shape it to bit and drilled hole with my trusty Victorinox.

So, before and after

Haven´t really tried that needle yet, but I think it will work fine atleast on lighter works.

So I continue with knife stuff. This time I want to introduce you asian style utility blade called "kiridashi".
It´s made by my good friend from Bush ´n Blade blog.

Blade is one solid piece of high carbon steel (from old file). Handle is made from paracord inner strands under and outer cover on top and tied same way than in traditional samurai swords.

Edge is chisel ground and really razor sharp with polished bevels and it´s straight side is a little bit convexed that you hardly notice it.

Sheath was not included cause I wanted to make my own, maybe necker type of sheath..Let´s see.

I don´t have much user experience from it yet, but it feels like very good all round cutter.
