    I generally use moosewood (a variety of maple) for my sticks, and always leave the bark on.

    Work them roughly to shape removing limbs ect., then let season for a few months at the least.

    Well, I don't really need any MOLLE, so I guess that leaves me looking for an old style one.

    Karrimor Sabre 45 Opinions???

    I'm looking at the Karrimor Sabre 45, and would like to hear what you think of this pack.

    Seems that some taller folks say it doesn't fit well.....and I'm 6'4".
    Will that mean it's a no go for...

    That is quite interesting, as I had thought a liner was almost always used in sheaths like that, and hat the linerless ones were just a recent way to make them cheaper.

    That's a great knife, and the story makes it all the better.

    Is the sheath wood lined???
    Most more recent Scandinavian knives I've seen have plastic liners, but it seems to me that that one might...

    Glad it meets with your approval Rune, I researched the traditional sheath styles for a while, but info on Scandinavian knives is a bit jumbled here in the U.S.



    Thanks mate.
  9. Bark handled puukko and traditional sheath.

    Just recently recieved this puukko from a friend who made it with birch bark I harvested and sent him.

    It needed a good sheath, so I decided to try my hand at making a very traditional back sewn...

    That's a fine looking bottle holder mate, nice and minimalist, I really like it. ^^^^^

    I agree that that much weight on ones belt is quite unpleasant.
    My canteen came with a belt carrier too,...

    Haha, I meant that humorously.
    I use both old school and modern gear, whatever is comfortable and works well, I think that's the best approach.
    Using the old gear can help improve your skills, but...

    I'm with you on modern sleeping bags.
    I will take mine over a wool blanket any time.
    Only time I like blankets is at home or maybe a cabin.

    I also like my lightweight hammock a lot

    We'll said, I must agree that this set up probably weighs more than something like a modern Camelbak or similar, but it has some advantages in regards to being able to boil water and such.
    It also...

    I prefer canvas as well, cordura may be stronger and a bit lighter, but canvas has a feel that modern synthetics can't match.

    I have a pack made from 500d cordura, and it is very nice though.

    It holds a SAK Farmer, Fenix AAA torch, firesteel, PJCB's for tinder, sandpaper for sharpening, and a small bundle of light cordage, and is small enough to...

    It is very solid, even more so than stacked leather.
    Very slight give if any.

    Bend??? You mean how much arch to the barrel shape, or whether it is actually bent???

    The handle shape is very close to a Mora #2 if that gives you a good idea of it.

    Yah, should be fun, whittling down and then rasping the liner smooth will be the time consuming part.
    I'll likely use pine for light weight and ease of shaping.

    Yep, the sheath it is in right now is from another one of my knives and althought it fits, its not ideal.
    When I have the time I plan to make a proper wood lined Scandinavian style sheath for it.

    Yep, Lauri blade.
    They use good steel, and the HT is spot on IMO.
