I used them while gathering firewood in the woods outside of Thunder Bay, Ontario and while camping in the Boundary Waters. They have a lot of sentimental meaning to me but have been unused for years and deserve better.
They're in excellent condition and ready to use but would benefit from a fresh coat of varnish.
57" long by about 10" wide made of hardwood and a gut mesh. These are the real deal.
125.00 and PM with interest.


Hang those bad boys on the wall!!
