    One Knife and 6 Months In The Wild - What is your choice?

    Can’t go wrong with RWL, it was developed specifically as a knife steel. Has all the performance of 01 with the benefit of corrosion resistance.

    One Knife and 6 Months In The Wild - What is your choice?

    There used to be a couple of members here about ten years back that could do amazing things with them and swore by the ethos of them. That was the original though, not the Tops version. Although, after profiling the blade, they were vastly improved.

    But when I’m going full on 80‘s wilderness survival, I’ll take Mick Dundee over John Rambo.

    I never implied that Ray said they were breeding. The caracal skull that was found was a juvenile, while the pictures around the estate were of an adult.

    Big Cat News

    It’s interesting to note that Ray Mears answers the question of there being big cats stalking our woods and moors with a resounding YES. And apparently he has seen a couple. So if someone of his reputation - who is very careful in how he represents himself in the media, puts his reputation on...

    Big Cat News

    About ten or eleven years ago in Staffordshire woodland. It’s a juvenile too. Shot. So it strongly hints at breeding pair. There was a thread ion it at the time with footprints and other evidence. I still see deer carcass in trees. But not much else. Local people have seen them at the...
