Nowadays on my hunting trips it's Pyry walking leashed and Kumu running free. Pyry doesn't seem to mind at all to be leashed most of the time, and carrying a backpack on longer trips. But who knows, it's impossible to get inside dog's head. Well, he's been with me 10,5 years now, so I can quite surely say he doesn't mind.... Better for him like this anyway, as after running free for some hours he's always limping for a day or two. When leashed, he can walk as long as needed, and no problems. It's impossible to tell for a dog to take it easy when running free, when they feel ok they'll just go.
Believe it or not, I have done some work during late summer and autumn too! Here's some knives I've made recently.
These two knives were made to pair the leukus I've made earlier for this customer.
A Lappish influenced knife. Moose antler, birch bark, brass.
Pair of full-tang knives. Brushed carbon steel, G10 handle with vulcanic fiber liners. Stainless pins.
After these two birds were gutted, Pyry took it as his job to guard them from approaching curious siberian jays. He didn't leave the tree before I packed everything and we continued the walk.
