    For Sale Ventile jacket, Fjallräven trousers, Leather boots

    Hi mate, I was asking a similar question and he replied to me by private message that they are SWEDISH SIZE 40 NOT UK (I believe this makes them a Fjallraven XXS at 26 inch waist?). Hope this helps. Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk

    For Sale Ventile jacket, Fjallräven trousers, Leather boots

    Hi mate, can you please advise on the size of the trousers. Is that the EU/Swedish sizing you are quoting (40), as this translates as an XXS for the UK (26 inch waist)? Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk

    Affordable first full-tang knife?

    If there were only three types of knife available I'm pretty sure we would still see debates Hootch !)... But I'm also pretty sure we would all 'get by' using them for bushcraft tasks... By hook or by crook anyway! If you were on my doorstep I would happily let you test some of the knives I...

    Affordable first full-tang knife?

    Hi Hootch, Scandi are certainly easier to maintain than other profiles, unless you're well practiced with a stone etc.. so are good to start with and it works well for shaping wood in bushcraft. They are not so good for slicing food or processing meat / game - which I guess your Opinel will be...

    Affordable first full-tang knife?

    Unfortunately there's no way of telling, you can hope they will take the knife back, which is why I prefer buying such items face-to-face. If you are considering more synthetic handles and good 'bang for your buck' have you ever considered the Mora bushcraft black, not a full tang but I've found...

    Affordable first full-tang knife?

    Hi Hootch, I have had a Condor Bushlore for over two years, in fact I bought three at the time, with a couple as gifts for my brother and his friend.

    Basket stamped sheath

    Hahaha! I will stand corrected and quite rightly chastised by Mr Fenna! I'm beating myself with birch twigs as I type this... but that's every Tuesday night, so I'll have to think of something else!! Apologies if I understated this beautiful craftwork, it really is Topnotch Topknot and I'm very...

    Up to date opinions on Helle's quality control

    I have an Utvaer and Temagami, they are both extremely sharp, keep their edges very well and need minimal maintenance. I have never battoned with either, not because I have concerns about them, it's just because I prefer an axe for this particular task. I would happily recommend either. I have...
