  • And I'll bring as much charcoal as can fit in the rest of Cuddly's car. Could have charcoal-stuffed lamb to save space?

  • @packrat Is due to attend (was a few days ago) Makers from that area, surely some of you are around? If you don't (but can), no moaning ever again permitted about a London meet being too far

  • That's a @kosta knives creation. He's another fixed blade that has similar features to that (but in an outdoor knife) which I love

  • Quote from Paul W: “There was a beautiful fixed blade by Daniel Serrano with stunning wenge scales that was doing the rounds, I think that @hughtrimble was interested in a purchase at one stage, but the photos seem to be no longer available, any ideas Hugh? ” I found the owner, and they just wouldn't part with it. I so wanted (and still want) that thing! Beautifully sculpted wenge, with the guard carved to match, but in a very tasteful and subtle way. I must have a picture somewhere...

  • If that's doable for you and for the the site, then yes please. Of course contributing whatever to make it feasible.

  • Quote from Coopster: “A low cost yet strong performing package for me today. Cold Steel knife with a Tri-ad lock...£46 Rechargeable 1150 lumen Thrunite... £28 Radio controlled and solar powered G-Shock... £65 The feeling you get when you know that all your kit is tough, capable and cheap to replace.... priceless. ” (Hidden Content)

  • Quote from The Lord Flashheart: “bushcraftuk.com/forum/showthre…36302&p=472261#post472261 Does this mean I need to buy a bushcraft knife? ” See above. You must buy all the gear and have no idea. It's how it works.

    Very tasty

  • Yes. Yes. And yes.

  • Quote from The Lord Flashheart: “It's a bit late at this stage for a hog but a lamb might be a possibility. I ask this question every time a gathering is mooted and every time the general response is remarkable in it's muted indifference... ” Alas. I'll put an apple in my pot noodle's mouth instead.

  • Quote from The Lord Flashheart: “So up for this... Will be bringing the makings of a hog roast, should be able to keep a dozen people in pork for a few days! ” Is this still a possibility? A hog roast would be frankly superb.

Nothing visible inside, but it did have that kind of either very cold or damp feel in the inside...hard to tell. Nothing visibly absorbed by the kitchen towel though. It was unstuffed, so not realistic in terms of how the water would behave in its surface, and only for a few minutes. However, confidence in something is worth every penny for peace of mind.

    Actually, this one seems to be punching well above its weight in terms of price for its weight. I bet it's barely waterproof. Needs some time with a hose.

    Just spent a little time in a Trekmates bivi (310g, roomy enough for my Thermarest Trail Comfort Regular to be inside it) which I've had for going on ten years, but never used. I've concluded head-end only entry is not for me as is just too restrictive and I can imagine it being extremely unpleasant in crappy weather when you're trying to slip into it. A tarp would improve the situation hugely I'm sure, but I'm not sold on the benefits of a bivi+tarp vs. a tent in terms of weight and set-up time…

    I'm going down the bivi route, as I don't want to rely on finding appropriately-spaced and strong trees. So having thought I'd narrowed it down to either the Wynchester Outdoors Adventurer Canvas Bedroll or the Outhaus Grand Solo 2 I'm realising now that they are really extremely weighty things, I'm guessing mainly due to their choice of fabrics. They're 4kg and 8kg respectively, although the Wyn doesn't have a mattress inside, and both will need a sleeping bag added. Anyone with any knowledge o…

  • Quote from san-mai-usa: “Maybe it's like those expensive Russian knives that are made in China, but qualify due to assembly? ” Possibly, but the same could be said for any number of US makers. For all we know they're machined in China, but assembled in the US.

  • They don't seem to say where the knives are made, just imply it's in the USA. If they're imported don't they have to have the country of manufacturer marked on them? Or does a remover sticker suffice?

    I like the spinner on a knife. They're fidgety things anyway, and add that in and that's great. Shame the knife itself looks so utterly awful (don't see the link between that one and the James Brand ones at all though in terms of styling?)

    So I've been watching some of the DD hammock videos (thank you for the suggestion @Gooner) and what I thought was an advantage of hammocks is that you wouldn't need to bring a sleeping mat. Clearly not as it seems highly recommended that you sleep on the mat in the hammock to provide insulation. So the hammock's biggest advantage to me, has been removed. Bivis investigated next
