    I love this blade it cuts great and I could of bought 3 of them for the cost of my zt350.

    I used my Kukri out in the woods today to cut down some alders, split wood and chop some seasoned branches.

    I got this from GK&CO anyway some blade they have in ebay have 10 dollar shipping. Next blade will be the Afgan 12 inch model with a more modern handle.

    Alder is an interesting wood... what are you doing with it? It can be good wood for smoking venison or fish.

    Tex I' was just cutting some alders so I could get the atv in to the woods. I never thought to use them for smoke I usually use hard wood. Now I have another project :)

    Peel the bark off the alder first though.

    I don't have any pictures online yet :( Yeah the alder needs to be peeled. I want to make some jerky for pemmican so that might be a good addition of flavour.
