    Keeping in the theme of sheepsfoot and automatic, here are 2 of my newer carries.
    Top is a Spyderco Jason Breeden Rescue and the other is a Gerber D.M.F.

    The picture makes it look better than it is. I've had it for nearly 20 years and its been my daily wear for almost all of that time. Its a little beat up and scratched but still keeps good time.

    Mine needs a new battery and a cleaning but on the outside it still looks pretty new.

    Anyone familiar with this thing? It was called the Skachet, an old-school survival tool made back in the late '60s until I'm not sure when. I bought this one circa 1969, maybe 1970, when I was in college. I used it hunting, it has a very sharp edge and a gutting groove. I dressed 2 deer with the thing. It came in a little leather pouch for belt carry.....not a bad little gizmo, really.

    It has a threaded eye, roughly 1" in diameter, so you can take a green piece of wood of that size or slightly oversized, whittle it down to dimension, and then screw on the head to make a respectable hatchet....

    They were made in Japan and sold for, as best I can remember, around $7 or $8. I have no idea what it might be worth now, maybe should check eBay to see, not that I care to sell it. Part of my personal history.

    Maybe I'll copy this and put it over on the axe thread. It is both a knife and an axe. Does anyone else have one or had one in the past?

    I remember them, but that is about all I can tell you.

    I live quite near to The Japan Woodworker, and always need an excuse to go drool. I'll ask next time I'm down there.

    They were also produced by Charter Arms in the US for awhile.

    They aren't valuable, looks like you can pick them up on eBay for less than $20. I saw some guy trying to sell them for $100 a while back, but doubt he had much luck. I just thought it was an interesting gizmo, an early survival tool. Heavy thing though. Now if they'd made them out of titanium, that'd be something!! :lol3

    The trick to the Skatchet, and I probably should not let this intel out, is that you can make a great handle out of galvanized pipe for it using an elbow, a length of 1in that fits the threads. Comes apart for fitting into a small bag, and goes together to make a handy hatchet along with the other attributes of the skatchet.

    Uh oh, you might be in a lot of trouble, letting that bit of info out, kinda like a recipe for a nuke. A Skachet with a metal handle is pretty scary stuff!!! :lol3

    Yeah, I was being factious.....about the intel part of course. I thought they came with instrux for using a hunk of galvanized as a handle. BTW the elbow is my idea so it doesn't fly outta your hand whilst hatchetting with it.
