    I bought two Mora companion knives, bought 40mtrs cordage from £land, spent half hour chatting to a nice looking policewoman on a big gee gee near £land. And bought a trangia stove set (the one for 3 or 4 people) to use with my lads. And got 2x books From charity shop by that chap john wright thats in hugh fearnley whittigstall's programme of old. One on fungi/ mushrooms and other on hedgerow foods etc. Then returned home and told porkies to the mrs as to how much i had spent. Mac

    How many bandages this time?


    Me, haven't touched much camping stuff recently, but the only thing I can add is making a new sheath for Jeep's Scout knife, since the normal upside down style I make is illegal over there in Denmark, and because of the micarta handle, the center of gravity is such bending over makes the knife and sheath go inverted. So I'm making a new one, with a belt loop, that will raise the CoG and keep him from getting arrested.

    Nutshell, I'm working on someone else's bushcraft gear.

    None actually. Only now she-that-must-be-obeyed is pestering me to sharpen her kitchen knives...but that's just boring....

    Start cooking for her and maybe you'll appreciate different types of cutting edges.

    Nutshell, a great bushcraft edge can be a lousy ripe tomato slicer.

    Don't mind me, I have been owning and sharpening knives since I was in early high school, then after studied Chef Training at the local college, learned a lot about knives and handling, then just every day stuff up til I got into camping more, knife usage, etc. A wealth of knowledge to be gained by various forms of knives, cutting tools, wood, food prep, etc.

    Besides, get a 1"x30" belt sander like I use for all my knife work, various fine belts, her complaining about dull knives will cause you to smile and think "Mmmmmm, power tool!!!!!"

    Lol

    He he, of course I'll sharpen her knives. I use them as much as she does :-)
    And yes, my head says powertool, my wallet says 3£ sharpening stone...and I have that.

    Whitled a spoon:

    But first I had to get the tools:


    Then it was just the chore of finding the spoon that was hiding in here


    It's coming out!


    Slowly does it


    I guess I am supposed to work with my hands, not on my hands!


    Getting there


    And thats it :-)
