    Country Innovation Kestrel ventile trousers (or other brands?)

    I've not tried the Kestrel gear. My Rover jacket is quality & great design. Also recommend Country Innovation for customer service & buisness ethos. No affiliations..... My old Hilltrek Smock is still going strong.

    The String Vest revisited… Fishnet Mesh Underwear

    I have these : https://www.gurds.co.uk/brynje-string-vest Cotton. Now made in Poland. They do everything they're supposed to, as detailed by others above posts. I bought spares... In different situations I use a merino string vest, so no one answer to what's best. I have 2 observations to...

    Easy Website Creation.

    I recently got a domain & hosting package from Hostinger. It was straightforward & good value. It integrates with Wordpress which is free & open source. I'm a beginner & found it (relatively) easy to use & put up a basic website. When I looked at Wix it seemed I had to pay a subscription, or...

    Does a knife cut hurt less with a sharp knife?

    I clean/wipe all my blades with Choji Oil. The theory is that the clove oil is not only anti-septic, but also analgesic. Furthermore, the anti-fungal qualities are good for the inside of the sheath or scabbard.

    Tactical Equipment

    ^ Yes. Criminals here are very well informed of the law & how to exploit the rules. Otherwise law-abiding citizens who make an admission, being unaware of the legalities, are much easier to prosecute... Upside down world.

    Tactical Equipment

    If attacked, rolling up a newspaper & using in a manner you can legally justify as self-defence is fine. Carrying a rolled up newspaper with that intention may cause a legal problem for you in the UK. My opinion. Nothing more. Disregard if you wish.

    Tactical Equipment

    If in the UK & intending to carry a 'tactical' pen I recommend being aware of potential legal implications. These have been discussed in detail elsewhere. Improvising with a Whale Tusk when justified is fine, carrying one 'just in case' will get you in trouble.... Stay safe.

    Tactical Equipment

    I believe 'tactical' pens are designed to be used as a Kubotan. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kubotan Of course, in the UK, carrying anything (even a banana) with the intention of using it in self-defence makes it an offensive weapon.

    Source of good pine tar soap?

    Used in the shower, it cleans well, rinses off very easily & has great fragrance. It leaves a slightly 'tacky' feeling of being coated in Pine Tar & if I'm going to be out in rain this is awesome as I feel waterproofed. Recommended. Stew - You organised the BB Urban ?

    Scandi grind on a new puukko

    I'd suggest zero grind scandi is a specialised wood working tool, due to the angle of 'attack' when carving. A small secondary bevel is stronger (more metal behind the edge) & more suited to all-round use. A lot depends on the heat treat, thickness of blade, and angle of primary bevel, so...
