Where the path takes me
BB has a lot to answer for...more knives than I know what to do with and a lot of money spent ;)

The information it had is irreplaceable because so much of it was based on experience. I know there was winging about the moderation at times (surely not!!) but the careful moderation is, in part, what made it such a pleasant forum...that and the members of course.

The shift to new forums and the splitting of the 'gang' has meant the knife world is not quite the same in the UK although EM is doing it's best and has a lot of nice members. At least life has stayed stable on here - thanks Tony!

I just joined the emccu Facebook group, it seems there is some sort of web archive with some of the old BB pages, might be worth a look if the tech/how to articles are available

BB was great but cost me a small fortune especially once I got involved with Stu M!
I think I have about a dozen of his in one form or another, plus a couple of his mum's too.
Beautiful work one and all.
Diamond Dave I have your Bernie Garland recurve bushcrafter though can't remember who I got it from:cool:
Just carved a bullroarer with it!

I grabbed a load of the "how to" articles a while back, have them in MS Word format, if they're any good to anyone just shout and I can email them out

I remember one of those massively long threads, it got me started on amateur radio, that and a thread on here. Got my full now, but still can't do Morse!
OMG morse!
Back in the day I was quite proficient (Ex R.Signals officer) but nowhere near my boss who could decode and record at an amazing rate while translating from Russian! But then he had been a naval spec op, his send rate was phenomenal too! Signals :ninja:

Fairly sure without BB, the Mike Reid (Pie in the Sky)/Spyderco colab wouldn’t have happened too. Lovely knives these.

And it wouldn’t have that Essexman lanyard on it either. :)
