    More modest bushcraft knife suggestions

    Hi all, I own an Enzo trapper (SS, self build). I like the overall feel and ergonomics and it is a very good quality knife. But I think the Scandi grind is too abrupt (especially near the tip) and I want something a bit lighter that can be carried around the neck and also Baldric style. In...

    GB wildlife hatchet

    Hi all. I had a birthday last week and was spoilt. Leatherman wave and a GBwildlife hatchet. I can't stop using them both. I have attached a link to a slideshow showing what I have done with the hatchet. I love the thing. It should make sense. I have made a stool with the help of a few other...

    I've got wood!

    I have access to some freshly cut wood. A little bit of birch and sycamore which will be used for spoons and carving and the log pile. There is a fair bit of willow. In fact, quite a lot with some logs about 4 ft long and 1ft wide. I hear willow is a good carver and I want to try using the...

    I want a big knife

    Hi all, I am looking for a big knife for light chopping and use on meat. I have owned a martindale golok but found it too big and I wanted to be able to use the edge to cut and not just whack. I did love using the thing however, even if it was clumsy. I reckon 8-9" of blade and a decent...

    Axe bevels- what angles?

    Hi all, Can't seem to find a definitive answer on blade profiles for my hatchet. I have 2 axes: AJ Finlay large axe (SFA size) and an argos hatchet (which has taken loads of filing to get and edge). The Finlay axe has a very slim profile and is very nice for the light tasks I give it. I...

    Wobbly knife

    Hi all, I bought a maserin Colt Caccia and ti has just arrived. I am a little bit dissapointed because the blade wobbles. I had expected a better finish really. Is it possible to squeeze it in the vice and sort the problem or should I return it? I was really looking forward to this knife to...

    What tree is this

    I am thinking willow or Beech, maybe sweet chestnut. Beech trees keep their leaves though and this hasn't. I have carved a piece and it was very nice which makes me think willow.
