Went into a charity shop today whilst visiting someone in a neighbouring town and spotted 3 'as good as' brand new Norgies on a rack of T-shirts, really don't need anymore but I picked one up and asked what the price was " Are you one of these people that asks how much things are in the £-shops too" was the reply, Had he not been so clever I would have told him what a more realisitic price to ask would have been, instead I now have three more Norgies or 'T-shirts' as he called them at a cost of £1.50 each.

The TBS folding edc knife with curly birch handle and leather pouch. Its for me to have on me all the time while I am at work and I love this style of knife and I think its great value for money.

I did slightly modify it by putting a beeswax/walnut oil balm on the handle. It has got a clear wax on the wood already from TBS but I thought I would protect it a bit more. If you look closely the last inch of the handle at the lanyard hole end has no balm on it, just for comparison.

I went on a bit of an eBay spree the last couple of days. Nice when you have a bit of free cash to blow on stuff (nice little car sailing through its M.O.T.)

300mm of 2mm Brass bar rod (for the Enzo necker in my post a few above this)
Pair of Green Canvas Micarta Blanks (again for the Enzo necker)
What do you think to the necker, I might buy the blade.

Manage to pick this up for £25 from Amazon. Very impressed with it and looking forward to using it for real. Nice and bright and very versatile.

Nifty wee tongs for camping 2 Quid @ Sainsbury's in the camping section, they come in a few different colours, I think they are the muts nuts, ideal for delicate non stick trangia frying pans I chose green, (next to a standard trangia pot grab for size reference)
