I've had an aluminium Kelly Kettle for many years and the fire bowl of that one fits nicely into the base of the kettle for transportation, allowing a couple of brews' worth of kindling to be securely stored in the chimney.
I received a stainless steel one pint Trekker for Father's Day :D...
While out and about today one of my daughters spotted a bee hanging from a daffodil. Upon closer inspection it became apparent that the bee was hanging from the "mandibles?" of a green spider.
I've had a Google, but can't seem to find what it is. Anyone know please?
I have now modded three of my Moras to make the blade profiles closer to a spearpoint. The profile works better for me and I am very happy with the results:
My 545, seen here with an unmodded 510:
With another great spearpoint utility knife, an ML Knives Kephart:
I received a few of these today. Overall I consider this knife an improvement to the Clipper.
Unfortunately it seems that carbon steel is no longer an option - only Sandvik 12C27 stainless.
I don't think you could find a better knife for under a tenner.
The packaging is nicer than the...
I recently took delivery of these two knives from Matt Lesniewski of ML Knives , a "Custom Drop Point, Fileworked" in 1095 steel, with tiger maple and brass pins:
..and a "Custom Woods & Bush", again in 1095, tiger maple and brass:
Matt was an absolute...
This is a duplicate of my post over in BritishBlades..
A very pleasant evening out with three friends, in our usual spot, where we've been going for about 18 years.
The Hilleberg Hotel (Tarp10XP), pitched lean-to, with room for the four of us:
There seemed to be quite a lot of...
I received this beautiful knife today from Joel Bolden. It features a 3/32" stock flat ground blade in D2 and Desert Ironwood scales.
Joel was an absolute pleasure to deal with and I'm very happy with the knife. :)
Nature documentary. A stunningly photographed portrait of the wildlife and landscape of the Mississippi River seen through the eyes of 'River Rat' Kenny Salwey, a legendary hunter, trapper and author who lives off the land and shares his watery haunts with...
I hope it's ok to post here. I'm not making any profit on these, I just bought a few more than in needed (forty nine more!) as I thought some of my BritishBlades and BushcraftUK muckers might be interested.
So it's really a preemptive Group Buy.
They usually go for $1.99 plus a $0.51...
Surplus and Adventure have got a very good price on the Swedish M90 parka at the moment. £19.97
It is an excellent warm jacket.
I know that people have reported bad service from Surplus and Adventure, but I ordered an M90 from them with no problem.

What do you wear?
I must admit that over the years I have overlooked one area of base layering..the underpants.
I have always worn cotton briefs and have therefore suffered from sweaty, soggy pants.
For some reason I have always resented paying a lot of money for pants (and socks), but it...
I am looking for a high quality small fixed blade knife with a blade around 3-3.5 inches.
I pretty much have my heart set on a Gene Ingram Drop Point #13, hopefully in S30V.
Does anyone have one of theses knives? I understand that the #30 is popular in the Bushcraft world, but do you have...
I just took the plunge and ordered a West Winds Antarctic Smock. I really think I have a smock problem. :roll:
I already have a Snowsled Classic smock and Swedish Army M60's, so I don't really need another one...but it looked so nice in my new Soldier of Fortune...
I was looking for a "beater" smock for times when I didn't want to risk damaging my Snowsled Classic Ventile and came across this:
I bought it from ExArmy where it is £30. I initially bought a black one , as they only have black and white listed, but when I received it I asked them if...
Do you have one? I can't decide which pocket configuration to go for. I'm leaning towards the classic style of the "kangaroo" pouch.
What do you have on yours?
I understand that the zip will open deeper on the version with the two bellows pockets, enabling more ventilation.
In the brochure...
I have just ordered one. I've been told that it will take 28 days to arrive.
I have read remarks on this thread about West Winds's customer service, but am I right in thinking that when it DOES arrive I will be happy with it?
I have a Snowsled catalogue on the way. I know - I...
