It is the sort of thing that people with no clue about bushcraft or tools would buy someone like us. They think we like this sort of thing.

Expect one in your stocking this Christmas!

I unfortunately have gotten something similar to the hammer & plier thing in a few Christmas's ago.

I distinctly remember someone saying "Oh he like multitool things" as I unwrapped it. :rolleyes:

Such a complete piece of crap.

Oddy enough dad has one of those. (a present from a well meaning relative)

He likes it and makes good use of it.

I think I could get behind this one:



Here is a modern version:



Fence Pliers. Very common and useful as you're making your rounds on the farm, so I'm told.

I've got a pair you can borrow if you need them Rob (and the rest of the fencing stuff). They are okay when fencing - but, honestly, wouldn't be in my top ten tools.

Thank you Hugh. I don't do much wire fencing, mostly its replacing panels & repairing post. But the house I'm hoping to buy does need fencing along a stream bank, & I'm thinking of putting wire mesh fencing & planting a hedge on my side to grow into it. Not sure what hedge to plant, I actualy like leylandi, but see so much of it with work & I'm looking for something else that's fast growing.

Thats what we did (with the wire fencing and hedging). We grew a lot of mixed English hedging. After 3 years it was well above head height from a 30cm start. Shout if you need the wire fencing tools (I have wire strainers etc.)
