    Fire safety

    I have noticed that in a number of videos on the subject of firelighting quite a number of people doing the demonstration, fail to scrape the woodland floor, clear of duff and dry leaves. OK.

    I have been a full member for some time and have not worked out what the meaning of " bump" is. I feelthat it is to indicate a price drop, but often there is no mention of change ofnprice til after several bumps, am I right, and why is there not a mention of the new price with each bump?

    Ray Mears Bushcraft Knife

    I have just been reading a review of the above knife by Knoxi 82. And I was surprised by this as I have had a knife identical to this for over 40 years, the only difference being that the one I have does not have theRay Mears name and logo on the blade and it has FALCON moulded on one side of...
