Following along with this one.  Interested in lots of theses "old" skills that have basically been lost to most.

Picked up a survivalist guide book at the used book store. I'll add stuff once in awhile after I read and take some notes down.

Started a new thread for blacksmithing so not to derail this one

Has anyone here ever tried Hawthorne for ax and hammer handles?

I'm not sure if this would be the right thread to put this in, but it's a pretty good chainsaw sharpening hack out in the woods.

So I've seen some "Bushcraft" knifes, what makes them different from regular knives? Kinda seems like the blade angle is different and maybe the metal is harder for doing more chopping or woodcarving?

Honestly it's more marketing than anything else. Some guys use nothing more than a Mora and do just fine. Often a "bushcraft" knife is thicker, as in 3/16" - 1/4" as it aids in splitting when batoning. Depends on your preference for a grind also, scandi grinds usually are on thinner stock blades, convex or it's variations is usually (but not always) on the thicker knives. Metals and metallurgy are argued about in the bushcraft circles just like they are anywhere else. Some like stainless others do not, some like super steals while others swear by more common types.
