Is this a...

    Summer shoes

    A bit of an update on the summer shoes. Ive decided on a Vibram Fivefingers Shoes, ive got a great bargain on them. They fit very well and are extremely breathable and flexible. The only thing i recommend is if you plan on buying them and can't try them on first go for a one lower number then...

    Best Material for a Rucksack

    Yeah had a look at those, but they dont really have the color im after, i'm afraid the only way i'll get it is if i dye it (+ i think its going to be cheaper). Nah thank you tho, the postage comes around pretty much the same :)

    Best Material for a Rucksack

    I'll probably have another look around my local shops for the canvas on monday and hopefully they can at least point me in the direction of where i could find it. Dying it? Thats not a bad idea, i havent really thought of that :D PS Whats the tool youre after?

    Best Material for a Rucksack

    Do you mind me asking where did you get the leather, because i've been having trouble getting it lately? No i havent bought the canvas yet, i looked at some of the links, but it just seem that i cant find that old WWII color that im looking for :/

    Best Material for a Rucksack

    Well im inspired by the old WWI and II rucksacks and i love the simple design of the roll up bags, so i think ill try mixing it up a bit, but i'll definitely keep it as traditional as possible (leather and waxed canvas) :)

    Best Material for a Rucksack

    Ive got a question about waxing canvas, should i wax the fabric before i sew it together or should i wax the rucksack when its already made?

    Best Material for a Rucksack

    I agree that Cordura might be a batter/stronger material however i just love the look of canvas and leather together, its just something about it :) I dont attend on making a frame i think ill try and add some padding for batter comfort.

    Best Material for a Rucksack

    Yeah I decided on a waxed canvas material and all of the outer accessories will be made out of leather. Id love to get the salt and pepper canvas, but so far i had no luck finding it. :)

    Best Material for a Rucksack

    Yeah that sounds great, ill ask Peto for some advice. The thing is my country is pretty s~~t when it comes to things like that and practically everything else, also the postage would be pretty much the same, so i was thinking of ordering overline anyway. If you can point me to some suppliers...

    Best Material for a Rucksack

    I have an old beast thanks to Sonni, its a Singer 201, so it shouldn't have a problem sewing the materials. I was thinking about canvas as well I'm only worried that it will be to weak (for a +20kg rucksack)?

    Helle GT

    If you're on a budget, I suggest you buy a blank blade and make the handle and sheath yourself. Helle makes blank blades for every knife they make, I just bought myself a Helle Viking Blank Blade :) But yeah Helle Knives are great and very durable, you just have to take care of it and it will...
