I've got along with an Opinel 6 for years thn bought my first Mora. Only now hav I bought what could be called a bushcraft knife (modest) - Mora Bushcraft Black. So all these years, pretty 'knifely-challenged', does neither deminish nor enhnce/highlight my skills/lack of skills.

If somebody bought me a custom Woodlore, I'd be overjoyed. In no way is the choice of knife a definition of a bushcrafter - imo.

If you want hand crafted beauty then that is a personal choice. I don't understand why the man is so upset.

Im not keen on Woodlores but I have a laminated Japanese blade. I dont spend much money on kit, but hey, I wanted to splurge out just once.

I was speaking to a lady the other day and she was enquiring as to my hobbies. I mentioned Bushcraft and BCUK and the first words out of her mouth were "Oh is that all about killing animals?"
I went on to explain that yes a small amount of it sometimes went down that route but that there were far more conversations about conservation, sewing machines, beards and biscuits.
She didn't believe me at first but I tried to define what it was. to me at least and hopefully she left feeling changed about a subject she only had negative connotations of in her head.

Are you sure she's not getting confused with "Bush meat" :confused:

I find my days generally go a lot better if I don't read youtube comments. Ignore him, he's obviously got a screw loose somewhere.
