does any one have this as a pdf file, or maybe some one who has the magazine could maybe take a photo of the page, and send it to me by email.
if some one could do that for me, that would be great, or maybe they have a spare copy of the mag i could borrow, so i could photo copy it.
would love to have a go at this.

Bushcrafter (boy, I've got a lot to say!)
could someone enlighten me about the "butterfly cut"? i'm guessing that it's the one that's shaped like......erm......a bow tie :rolleyes:
there's a link to a youtube vid but youtube tells me that i'm using an outdated browser (which pleases me no end!) i'm consumed with curiosity and starting to go a little mad trying to work out what a butterfly cut could be used for, please help.

cheers

Takes about a minute. Apart from weak lashings, it can be used to keep improvised bush bed frames in place in case you toss and turn a lot. same for a bush table or chair. Saves the paracord.

Used on smaller sticks it could be the trigger stick for a spring snare. the vertical line under tension is held by the butterfly nocks but when the prey pulls or ppushes the bait the horizontal stick disengages and whoopsy a little critter becomes your next meal.

Hope that helps

What tool(s) did you use for this "ceremonial tent peg"? I'm not sure how I would do that with just knife tip.
