    Missing a trick with belts?

    Damn you got me was going to ignore this. Really interested in how they doing that? Think it a loss leader of some kind or they making very low profit on it. If you look at the prices of some of the other items they sell it does not make sense why one thing costs £88 and that T-shirt costs £10.

    Survival Tins - Updates

    I did wonder about the copyright issue however had no plans to post them either. I am a little tempted to post some of the pictures. There is a very good one of "Jungle John" :) I am going to work out a way to scan the Survival Aids catalog. I am seriously thinking about purchasing your book...

    Reuseable food bags designs as per Nessmuk etc - to carry flour, rice, and other powders

    You can make you own so I am thinking of an outer bag with the wax on the inside and an inner bag of just cotton.

    Reuseable food bags designs as per Nessmuk etc - to carry flour, rice, and other powders

    Yes however they then stuck them in jars by the sound of it. Yeah I do wonder about some sort of design of 2 bags. The outer one waxed on the inside and the inner one so it can be washed. Maybe some sort of tie down so you could roll the top down and tie it. Seen some stuff about pemmican and...

    How to encourage diversity in bushcraft

    I sort of think this is what is wrong with the world. Lets take why are Women paid less than men and mainstream media says it is all mens fault. Jordan Petterson on the other hand points out that there are 32 reasons why, for example men choose jobs that pay more because they are more...

    Missing a trick with belts?

    Can I add First Aid to the list of things that will add a percentage to the cost of things. Also if you think of the cost of a hand made belt £100 quid sounds about right. You pay for the materials, the skills, and the time taken for a 1st world worker. No one in the 1st world is making £10 T...

    Me too. I have about 2 folders of articles however I got rid of the magazines. I do have the diary book they published on a shelf about 6 foot from me. Good info even to this day.

    Reuseable food bags designs as per Nessmuk etc - to carry flour, rice, and other powders

    Weirdly I am trying to get the Bushcraft solution to something. I am trying to work out how our ancestors solved a problem. Obviously unless they just lived with a layer of flour and other powders dusting everywhere there must have been a way to make a flour bag that did not leak. I think the...

    Survival Tins - Updates

    It was the Explora - Altor maybe. Owned one and had it stolen. It is weirdly on topic because the descent blades and cards in survival kits come from this knife because everyone was putting the harpoon in their survival tin. I may have more info on this or John might remember it as it was...

    Survival Tins - Updates

    I might have a copy, it would be in the loft at my Mums if it survived the various binnings. I will try and look at the weekend because I am curious as well. Did you have the Rucksack which had a waist belt that was a climbing harness? Always wondered what that was like. For a long time one of...

    Carrying knives to the woods - knife license...inevitably rambling onto American gun stuff

    Normal semi so nothing to attach something as heavy as a safe to. As someone who has had to site safes for work in concrete and steel buildings you do have to be really careful were you site them due to the damage they will cause over time. People think a loft is a floor and a lot of times the...

    Carrying knives to the woods - knife license...inevitably rambling onto American gun stuff

    To and from work was no problem, it was the safes at home that were the problem. You want to be careful because I am sure a few people here have pointed out situations were if you have a detour in your journey your reason no longer applies. He would have had to have his loft reinforced to have a...

    The Survival Aids catalog needed me to win the lottery. The time I spent drooling over that.
