    outdoor kitchen

    What you show us on the photo in my opinion doesn't belong like this in the woods. If you have a piece of land which is surrounded by an ancient wall it would be a nice idea to add such a kitchen in it, next to the gate with a little shed perhaps. Or that could nicely blend in a mountain area in...

    My First 'Bushcraft' Knife!

    Mors Kochanski meant, that most knifes are lost in the snow. I heard that a few days ago in a video. The only thing I ask myself is: What is snow??? Mora carbon steel blades are surely the best choice for beginners and probably the best choice for old foxes.

    Advice for 16 year old buying a lock knife?

    I am no British advocate. In my opinion the only option to carry legally a locking folding knife in the UK is to carry a shortened and deasembled Opinel No7 Carbone. It is possible to give it a lower tip if shortening the blade. It works well as a friction folder when the blade became a bit...

    Congratulations! And even if I have no sailors or pilots in the family: Sorry for the air raid and the submarine!

    What is the best bushcraft chair?

    I thing it would be a good idea to put a bench in between two mid sized trees if possible. That thing would be done relatively fast.

    What is the best bushcraft chair?

    I guess, that here is a very traditional design, Keith, well fitting to your Austrian folding knife. http://shop.hubertus-gmbh.de/art/37-050-00

    Name That Tree

    Yes, that works pretty well. Educated persons usually know the Latin or Greek words they need. It's just necessary to use them.

    Berghaus Vulcan/Crusader

    I think about buying the Altas. One size is recommended until 183, the larger starts with 183. I am 184 cm tall and I ask myself if the larger one really fits. Do they count into theyr recommendations that some people have long legs? My legs are relatively long. So perhaps the back is more like...

    What is the best bushcraft chair?

    May be primitive, but I usually sit on the ground. I use a military poncho and sit on it if there is no grass or something else but dirt, or if it's whet. A log is quiet comfortable of course. And pretty robust too. The comfortables usually aren't portable, but that doesnt matter, because a...

    Trade Kettle.

    One is for carring it, the other for the house, I guess. I thing the cast iron pot is mainly lighter, because people where poor and the material expensive. The brass kettle of 476 g has which volume??? The spoon weights what? Does it have a normal size like most stainless spoons nowadays...

    Ajungilak sleeping bag

    If you get out the exact weight and length of it you can look up a currently offered Ajungilak sleeping bag and the recommended temperature range should have been similar for the NEW product. If the bag should be pretty old, used a lot and have been stored compressed in the compression bag it...
