    Customised Finnish gas mask bag

    As well as being a bushcrafter, I’m also interested in military history. I think the winter war and continuation war hold lots of interesting facts for living off the land and outdoors skills. I hope you like this... I might look at doing commissions? Finnish army gas mask bag.

    Has the bubble burst?

    Just pondering the current state of UK Bushcraft. Would anyone else agree that the hype seems to be dying off a bit nowadays? Personally, I don't think its a bad thing. It might deter some of the more stupid people in society becoming interested in Bushcraft and giving us a bad name...
