Knives and nettle cordage

We have had a few frosts and its the perfect time of the year to gather up some nettle. Its one of my favorite cordage plants. I find the plant still has plenty of sting left but a good pair of heavy leather gloves makes harvesting a breeze. It will give me a chance to work with a few of my knives and see who works best for what. I'll post some photos in an article after I harvest some.
