    I can sympathise with the poor quality of compasses-yesterday I took 24 mile hike with a compass I was given as a gift only to find out around 3 hours in that the needle labelled North actually pointed a few degrees off south and as a result ended up around 2 miles off course!

    Mora Pro Robust?

    Anyone here used the Mora Pro Robust? How is it? Been thinking of using it as a shorter knife for more control for carving, cutting, food and game prep and some batoning, in conjunction with an axe. Would it be suitable? What is the grind like?

    Which kukri?

    Was considering tora but as you said all their products seem to be out of stock with no indication as to when they will become available again. I think I will go for the 12" ang khola from HI, but with a villagers finish as I have no need for a mirror finished blade and also to keep the price...

    Which kukri?

    For a while now I have been toying with the idea of getting a larger blade for minimal/summer camps- when I'm trying to get by with as few tools as possible, or when I need little firewood and there is a lot of ground vegetation which needs to be cleared.
