I bought this fairly recently and to be honest, its seen very little use due to work commitments. When I do get out, its foraging these days!
Bravo 1 in crucible metals CPM 3V. This was custom made for me by Mike Stewart (owner of barky) to my specifications. The jimping on the...
Another year and another great group :)
Its incredibly rewarding to watch people take such interest in foraging, answer questions and also learn along the way.
I hope Frazers presentation inspired you to get out and explore your natural surroundings.

In a pickle at the mo. I bought a replacement clutch for a mate to fit (he's fully competent, and free) but while its been lying around
waiting to be fitted, the release bearings gone walkies :rolleyes: Hmmm.
Not having much joy sourcing one without the complete clutch, does anyone have access...
Well, I was introduced to this non native (extreme northwards) plant last week and its a very odd thing.
As the name suggests, it has the texture of Sea Aster, but tastes identical to fresh oysters. Not similar, indentical :p
Anyone else tried it, or even found some locally?
As per link- I also have a near complete larger block of Flexcut Gold to throw in. £35 posted recorded. I'm away now till Sunday.
PP or internet banking fine :cool:
Having spent a year or so using a Warbonnet Blackbird style hammock, which I really like, it got me thinking about having a dedicated hammock for winter, another for summer.
Toying with the idea one day of hitting foreign shores where they really do get below -10, I mulled over a...
Toying with the idea of buying a bridge (Wbbb) for a dedicated winter hammock. Simple reason being with the lay of a bridge your down bag suffers no compression issues as it would with an asymmetrical lay hammock.
Anyone own one?
My main concern is shoulder pinch really. I've watched videos...
I wasn't expecting much more than the usual socks/smellies/pants et-all this Chrimbo, but very pleasantly
opened a box to find this. I really liked the look of one of Dave's custom hawks some time ago, discussing it briefly
with the other half and thought nothing more of it.
Straight out the...
This was designed by Mat to be an alternative to the Warbonnet Blackbird.

Been oogling these for a while, watching reviews, that kind of stuff.
I wanted a heavy camp knife that could replace a hatchet (at times) while packing lighter. The one negative I picked up about the bark river
Bravo-1 was the jimping was a little sharp on the thumb. A few emails back and forth...
Looking for liners and mittens for the winter, curious if the Seal Skinz range is any good. Was thinking contact gloves as inner, winter mitten outers.
I need something that will handle -20 or so. Cheers, al.
Does anyone have Steves number they can PM me. We are supposed to be hooking up for a meet down my permission over the autumn/winter,
but we (I) forgot to swap numbers at the end of the moot (for the second year running) :rolleyes:
I know he's not on here much due to having a knackered pc of...
Helle Eggen. Triple laminated stainless blade that takes a horrendously sharpened edge and keeps it. As I've said in previous posts,
I'm a huge fan of helle steel. Its a pleasure to sharpen and use. Handles had a light rub down with micro mesh and several coats
of Teak oil to freshen up the...
