Not at all... I just hate posers and frauds.
It does seem that whenever the opportunity presents itself people are quick to bash him. Look I am no particular fan of BG and in the early series it turns out they stayed in hotels whilst filming but he was TA SAS and they are far from weekend warriors. They do all the same selection and the same survival training they deploy alongside the regulars and are serious soldiers. He was a survival trainer, he did climb everest within 2 years of breaking his back and did row across the artic. He has done a lot of good for scouting he never claimed the shows were anything other than they were it was the program makers who shot them that way. I am fairly sure his CV is streets ahead of most on here especially those so quick to criticise. Les Stroud is more realistic but kinda lacking in much in the way of television for that. Sitting in the shade in the dessert and drinking the 20l of water he brought with him was realistic but not that exciting to watch. Bear went the other way.

Actually DC was an experienced military man. Just not in Special Forces as he claimed.
And Jonathan and Southey on this forum did an extensive review og BG's knife. And despite wanting to find fault with it, they quite liked it.
Survival training? Everyday is survival training. Everybody has survival training. Yet nobody makes it. We all die in the end.
Have you used a Temagami?
I think he's jumped ship from helle now. I was close to buying one just after Xmas, lovely looking knife.
Looks like he's gone with camillus.

I thought he was still doing both deals. The knives are for to a certain extent for different markets after all I suppose. The Camilus stuff sure is ugly though compared to the Helle!
You might be right about different markets. He's been pushing the camillus knife a great deal on Twitter recently. His branded helle knife looks gorgeous.

Gentlemen, that's enough!
This thread has wandered so far back and forth, on and off topic, that it bears little semblence to its original intention.
It has brought about heated debate and plumbed the depths of good and bad emotion.
I'm closing this thread and would appreciate the topic being left alone.
