    Outstanding workmanship Ralph
    I must say though I am a little surprised you did not hand forge and fold that blade as they would have done in Japan in the traditional manner

    Thanks Mark!
    A little tough to do in this scale.

    Here's one of me from earlier in the year after a couple of outings on the Roe bucks. I do some deer management on some land in Hampshire so there are a couple of young bucks here and an older one. I leave the stronger, middle aged animals to breed and take the young, old, injured or lame animals to ensure the healthiest population on the land. It is also a good way to stock my freezer. I don't like buying meat wrapped in plastic so by deer stalking I have the freshest meat possible in which I take a personal pride in taking from the field to my plate. I shoot, dress, butcher and cook everything myself as my ethics as a hunter.
    I enjoy going out with my rifle, being in the countryside and watching the wildlife. Shooting something is an incidental, being outside and watching life carry on around me as I sit quietly is a rewarding experience. Watching the young deer being born and grow up, the foxes and birds and insects are what it's about and much more entertaining than sitting in front of the TV for hours!
    Looks like a good day out.

    Besides collecting military I have a passion for building 4x4's and have rebuilt many over the years I am currently rebuilding a 79 jeep Wagoneer I have finished the mechanical and now I have to finish the bodywork and paint ,liftkit,and weld up and add the equipment rack to the roof .
    Other hobbies include anything to do with the great outdoors the photo of the gentleman with the rainbow trout is my Dad he caught this monster while we were fly fishing last summer.
    I allways have a camera with me and love photography the last photo is of a cloud trying to spawn a small tornado while I was working on a rig in the Dawson creek area in northern British Columbia

    Glad you like it. I don't think I can narrow it down to just one, there are a few.

    Mark is enjoying Canada the right way!

    I used to live in Utah, where I managed to get outside a lot. Pennsylvania is good for nothing but woods and lake-effect snow. We also get a lot of Canadians who come here for the tax-free clothes, but I like you guys a hell of a lot more than the snow!

    Anyway, here is my latest hobby. I adopted a 10-month-old cat from the Humane Society 3 days ago. Her name is Tango.

    Sorry Ralph I missed your reply That trout was a monster I am positive if we lost it near the boat my Dad would have dove in after it .
    We ended up smoking all the trout we caught that trip and then canning it .

    Regards Mark K
