    Traditional Herefordshire clog maker

    Hello all During last night's BBC Countryfile episode one of the presenters visited a traditional clog maker. I'm not sold on the idea of clogs but was quite taken with the bladed tool he used to prepare the wooden soles. Worth a watch. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0822kj7 :)

    Predator 45 Rucksack

    It is branded PRI (Police Resources International) who according to their website are the Karrimor SF (Special Forces) UK Distributor. I've had a couple of Karrimor Sabres and this is as well built, whether it is made at a Karrimor factory or elsewhere I don't know. I hope this helps. :)
