So, I bought one of these which arrived today. As far as I can see there's nothing wrong with it! Bargain for less than £20!

I've one on the way. I already have a standard one that I've always fancied rehandling but I don't mind messing one up for under £20. I do like the standard rubber grip but I like the idea of stacked leather.

For a stacked leather handle, you may need to find out what kind of tang is on the knife. It looks like it may be a partial tang, like a mora.
I'm sure I'll be corrected. :)

It's a substantial stick tang that extends out of the rear of the handle to form the distinctive loop. I'm thinking remove the loop and forge out the tang a bit, the handle already being quite generous in length. The beefy tang should give support to the leather. Think Kabar rather than Mora.

Stanley Adventure (two cup) Cookset

Hi all

Quite a few bushcrafters in the US rave about a small cook kit produced by Stanley consisting of a 24oz stainless steel mug with lid and two nesting insulated cups. I've been looking for a while but most UK prices are quite high for the size of the kit (good for a day out but maybe not big enough for an over nighter, depending on your needs).

However Amazon UK are currently selling it for £7.79 plus £4.18 shipping (via Amazon US). I've ordered one.

Here's the link if anyone is interested.

Three days later and I'm really pleased to say that my order from Savers has arrived :)
Everything good about it, and the tins that I went onto their site for a looksee are substantial, a little bigger than I expected somehow, but look awfully useful....and they've got Dove men's stuff inside too. A bargain at £2.99 :)
They even sent me freebies, laundry capsules and a perfume sample too.

Cheers @Bishop
The heads up is appreciated :cool:
