Sorry to hear about the joint problems. Had both my knees replaced 4-5 years ago. It was a wise decision. Absolutely no regrets. Do the follow up and do it religiously and you won't regret it. ::nod:: ::nod::

Thanks for the confidence builder. I already got the left one done, works pretty good. I'll be glad to get rid of the pain.

I have more than a passing interest in axes. The pocket knives are actually an offshoot of tool collecting.

I measure my collection by the ton.

Missed your post. No peace pipe, solid hammer pole shaped like a pipe bowl but much more handey for pounding tent pegs, no damage to the lungs.

On a recent episode of Forged in Fire on History channel they had a peace pipe challenge and one of the parameters was the judges had to be able to smoke out of it. Then they chopped bone/wood or something like that, so everything had to be perfectly made to withstand their torture tests. The ability to smoke out of it was more of a novelty thing just to see if the contestants could make a hatchet/hawk that functioned on all levels.
Pocket, fixed, machete, axe, it's all good!
