    Old school thick and super sticky zinc oxide tape?

    As a kid, zinc oxide tape was the sort of stuff that when it went on, it stayed on. Even when the tape came off, you were left with a sticky residue for a good while after. Proper coarse fabric to it. Proper stuff! These days it seems to be a weak version that doesn’t last. Or is it just that...

Forced tiger stripe patina to...

    Source of good pine tar soap?

    My stupidly simple block of the above will run out soon and I don't think it's being made anymore (happy to be wrong!) Does anyone have a recommendation for another supply in the uk or warnings of ones to avoid. I don't have any desire to make my own. Thanks!

    For Sale Three knives without sheaths

    I'm pushed for time and space at the moment and in the process of sorting to make space I came across these three knives that all need sheaths. Rather than leave them sat in a box for months to come, I thought it worth offering them up for those that are happy to make their own or commission one...

    Holiday whittling

    My friends sit with a book in the mornings while we're holidaying but I like to whittle while I have my coffee. I took a rough axed billet of cherry with me and then from that point on just slowly removed the bits that didn't suit with a knife or two.
