    Uco leather wrap

    Pottery question ???

    Hi all I've got a reproduction Neolithic Beaker (clay cup) which is meant for display only. Nah I'd like to use it for drinking from. Unfortunately it's porous (think terracotta). I vaguely recal someone mentioning milk to seal pottery. And obviously I could apply beeswax. Can I...

    Martingale Golok Sheath

    I got myself a golok a while back but it came without the canvas sheath option. So I thought it was about time I sorted a sheath for it proper. I prefer leather anyway. So set about sorting one from some 3-3.5mm veg tan from the Identity Store. I made a few errors as I'd not allowed as...

    Hello the collective forum brain ;) I have a desire to get my hands on a Muntjac for butchering and to try some skills at processing the hide, etc. Had the great fortune to have a play at Will Lords. The meat was lovely and size wise I should manage with one. Good amount of meat but not...

    Was having a little play in the shed today. What do you do with a coconut shell? Little beech handle riveted on with copper nails. Fun little project and work quite well till I get round to making a proper one.

    Knife journey so far, plus bits

    Not posted a thread for a bit so thought I ought to. I've been oddly interested (read obsessed) in knives all my life. From my first crappy 'survival' knife to a very expensive handmade 'bushcraft' knife. As part of that I've handled a few blades in my time and enjoyed it for the most...

    Another Snow Smock (went slightly wrong)

    There has been loads of Swedish Snow Smocks on here and all fantastic. So when I grabbed one at the bushcraft show I felt I had to mod it a bit. Here's the original I then thought I'd dye it as its an easy mod (ha), and would look better than walking around in an off white smock in the...
