    The perfect Bushcraft knife!

    This is why I think the knife should be offered in a kit form or as a finished blade/sheath option. That way each knife is individual to its owner and in some ways the most important way the handle fit. We all tweak cutting edges to our own taste so long as we are happy with a basic grind type...

    The perfect Bushcraft knife!

    Jimping first 25 mm works for me. Maybe just the next 25 mm flat ground to give a dedicated area for using the firesteel? Dave.

    Fixing up an old cabin

    Abbe is there just the lake or is there a stream or river close to the cabin? You could build a small water wheel or turbine to power a generator. Dave.

    Sheath Design question

    I know its a comprimise on the handmade quality to a degree but could you not make your box shaped pouch by wet forming then create the divisions inside with an injection moulded insert to reduce costs?

    extracting oil from fish?

    Thanks Red I only asked because I was reading yesterday someone had purchased one of those Cobb BBQ + smoker combined and its set up to gather the oil/ fats from cooking and as its an oily fish I thought it might be a way to extract it and be able to eat the fish too. Dave.

    Bounty on Grey squirrels ahead?

    The main danger to all this is the now peaceful highlands will start filling up with untrained inexperienced nutters with guns out to make a quick quid or two. Before long we'll be needing kevlar underblankets to the hammocks not quilted ones (better start sorcing them John lol). Dave.

    Sheath Design question

    What about a single long slip case to take the stone with a sam brown stud closure. On the front of that a single pocket sub divided into two to take the firesteel and a mini mag with a second flap closure and sam brown stud. Dave.

    The perfect Bushcraft knife!

    Sal handles are more individual than blades in the majority of cases the one thing most agree about is that it should be stablised, many like liners and a lanyard tube. Why not do like many custom makers here and make two versions 1) fully finished 2) a finished blade,sheath and blocks...
