    Guys, I have a kukuri (model unknown) with the usual leather/wood sheath. While pretty I don't feel it is that practical for canoe camping in the usually damp and dismal British weather. I'm after either a custom made sheath or something off the shelf. Some basic requirements are: Openable...

    Bushmoot programme?

    Is there a published schedule of activities for the moot? Due to an unexpected event (been laid off again!) I'm now free from the 4th onwards. While I would love to camp for the week I need to keep my spending in control as I don't know when I'll next have a job. Hopefully the day rate isn't...

    Sharpening a convex, is it different to a scandi?

    I have a F1 and Lansky kit to keep it in condition... but I'm not certain I'm sharpenning it correctly! Is it just the angle of the grind that's important? I believe the overall process is the same (coarse to fine grit, inceasing the number of passes each time and finish off on a strop with...

    Did you know that the Mountain Rescue teams cover more than just mountains and lost Duke of Edinburgh groups? We often work with the Police to search for missing persons. Sometimes it will be a hiker on a hill, other times it's a lost child, a Alzheimer’s patient who's wandered off or...
