The seven lives of a 108 Safari

PM : Def, how about this 108 merit badge ?

Got this Mauser in pretty bad condition. Sent it in november back to Ibach (sounds nice "back to Ibach", no ?) through the french distributor, waited four months (Christmas and New Year period I presume). Got a very nicely re-done Mauser, by the way. They left the original saw with the name engraved, though, they probably wanted to retain its identity to the knife but that's beside the point.
The point is they returned the clip point blade and the main blade. Out came sheets of 600, 1200, 2500 grit paper, taped on the table, I had to remove a fair amount of metal to get the blade back in good condition. Mounted it to a GAK frame I had laying around, topped it with those fancy epoxy scales made by fellow member Grenboerg, and Voila ! a very original knife. I just love it. Somehow the clip point behaves differently compared to the normal shape. It does very well on fruit, pizza, peeling, enlarging holes started with the reamer, without the bulk of the extra layer on the Mauser.

Actually bought a cordless mouse. When the cat is on the right side of the keyboard, use the mouse with the left hand, and vice versa....... until the cat found out it could do much more damage laying on the space bar.  >:D
