    carving challenge!

    There's some very nice carvings here. I've never tried a woodspirit but I did have a go once with something small just to try something different. This was some time ago. Original thread: http://www.bushcraftuk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=106963&highlight=carving+spoon+with+axe Mora 105 for...

    Conflicting views about bushcraft

    Don't feel bad. You don't have to justify your purchases of anything (except maybe to your wife:)), least of all to someone who criticizes the cost of that knife while insulting your nationality, especially when I've seen custom knives sell for more than that on BCUSA and elsewhere. Life is...

    Kind of cool :-)

    Similar, yes, but in two different parts of the country:). The first link shows an igloo made from freezing blocks in containers, while the second showing the castle, has blocks cut from lake ice and lit with coloured lights. Once warmer temperatures arrive, it'll all melt together in one big...

    Kind of cool :-)

    It seems quite popular here as well. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/oxford-station-ont-ice-igloo-draws-big-crowds-1.2975016 And on a grander scale http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/saskatchewan/weekend-events-in-saskatchewan-1.2976229 The ideal way to get blocks, though unfortunately not...

    Anyone tried Ochsenkopf Axes

    This is so true and it's the best advice possible. Several years ago I was able to check out some new Ox Heads purchased by an exploration company. This one was a bit of a shocker: This pic really didn't capture just how badly skewed this head is. At the time I must have had the camera at an...

    Button compasses

    Yes, quite expensive. The least expensive one is about 38 pounds delivered to the UK (excluding customs), but that sounds soooo much less than the $73 Canadian dollars one would cost delivered to me in Canada:lmao: (again, this is excluding customs costs)

    Button compasses

    Being a sucker for nice things, especially high quality, I really like these little compasses. They are available in brass, stainless and titanium. Very expensive though, although I'm sure they would last a lifetime. A bit of sadness to lose it though!:) I don't have one of these, nor know...

    Fallkniven DC3/4 durability

    Thanks guys. I've only had mine a short time and haven't used it all that much yet, but plan to keep it in my pack as a field sharpener. While I realize that diamonds do wear with use, getting progressively finer, I had no idea as to the longevity of the ceramic side. It seems that it'll...

    Fallkniven DC3/4 durability

    I know these are quite popular, and in fact have one myself. What I would like to know is this: how durable is the ceramic side of these sharpeners? Does it ever wear out?

    Beaded slip joint pouch

    My wife does beadwork, and awhile ago a forum member contacted me to see if she would make him a beaded pouch for a slip joint knife. She agreed, and after getting the required measurements , proceeded with the pouch and has now finished it. He requested his initials and also wished for it to...

    I'm impressed -tough people!

    This is quite the adventure and I wish them the very best. They are one tough couple to be travelling through Canada mid winter. Outstanding!! http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/saskatchewan/alaska-to-argentina-motorbike-adventure-includes-sidetrip-to-regina-1.2952611
