    A big disappointment...

    I think he's refering to Ian, the older chap in the shorts in shot DSCI0005 lol :D, I'm in the shot before and I'm fairly certain I don't look anything like Gordon Hillman ;)

    Mora triflex or helle eggen

    They are both great knives and will serve you well if you treat them with respect. The Helle is the higher quality of the two, but comes in at over twice the price of the Mora. I've had the privalidge of working with both recently, the Mora Bushcraft Triflex is my favorite from the new Mora...

    Moccasins and the whole barefoot running/hiking question

    I used to go barefoot from April through to November without going near any kind of footwear, and did so for around five years. You do build up feet like a hobbit, but once you get to that stage, very little hurts your feet. The odd pointy rock would occasionally bruise the foot through the...

    Falkniven F1 vs Woodlore Clone

    This is very true, they're all useable knives. My opinion is just that, an opinion.

    Falkniven F1 vs Woodlore Clone

    I have a couple of Woodlore clones, have used a couple of BG's, and I use an F1 on a daily basis at work as my knife of choice.

    Falkniven F1 vs Woodlore Clone

    I'm a huge fan of the F1 over the Woodlore clone. It's few shortcomings (carving etc.), are easily overcome with a bit of practice. No knife is ideal for everything, which is why the knife is such a diverse tool, but the F1 ticks an awful lot of bushcrafty type boxes for me, and the steel and...

    There's no law against importing knives unless they are on the list of banned weapons (such as flick, push, butterfly knives etc), which the clipper isn't. I import knives regularly and have no problems at all. I'll gratefully give it a good home Jontock if scorpio doesn't want it ;)

    My personal prefrence is for the clipper, but only because I prefer the asthetics and the sheath. I have a broad hand, and I can use either just as happily. There really is nothing to choose between them if I were to be honest with you, as the differences make so little difference.
