I recently found a youtube channel run by a guy doing demos/tests of military mess kits, there are about 11 videos to date as I recall, Quite entertaining, and not too long.

It’s the first time I’ve been in the UK when the Moot is on in about 6 years.

I wouldn’t mind laying my hands on one, but they’re a bit hard to get hold of these days.
I remember lusting after one in the...
I have a CS LTC Khukri that I picked up about 25 years ago that is a fantastic chopper and holds a fantastic edge.
As to the Tracker, it’s a classic design.
I’d like to see what I could do with it.
I’ve carved spoons and trap triggers with a machete and a Khukri just to prove I could, I’d...
I’ve no idea why the Tracker is appealing to me at the moment.
I’ve just got an itch to try it out.

As for the Condor, I’ve got a traditional Khukri, and like it, but I find the handle is a bit small for my hands...
