    Autumn sunday in Ring Skov (Horsens, Denmark)

    A nice day out and about, practising firemaking, drinking tea and honing my photography skills:

    Thumbs up Lovely Photos - Thanks for Sharing

    Hi Jakob,

    Some lovely photos there, thanks for sharnig. I like the look of your knife in the 1st photo, lovely burl handle, is it a Tregor Woodsknife?

    Also your shiny cup in the fire looks nice, I'm sure Martin will like it's shineyness but might weep at it being in the fire

    Is that a nice-looking toilet in the woods?


    hehe.. reminds me of a place we go camping with ancient beech woodland and a toilet on the hillside (although it dosen't look look like that one!) You take some great shots Jakob.

    Thanks

    The knife is a Finnish handmade Eräpuu model 202; http://www.erapuu.fi/ - Eräpuu is not a very well known brand I guess, but imho. they are producing some of the best knives for the money on the present market.
    The blades are carbon steel, capable of holding a wicked edge; I have had mine for six months (where it has seen use at least once a week) and so far I have only had to sharpen it once. For most models, you have the choice between curly birch or a cheaper dark stained birch handle. The scabbards are simple and functual, but solid, mine came with a few too many "drying cracks", but none that couldn't be fixed with large quantities of leather grease.
    The prices are 1/2-3/4 of major brands like Brusletto, Helle, Karesuando and Marttiini - overall the Eräpuu knives are finished a tad rougher, but the functual quality is easily on par.

    The cup os a Tatonka 4072 Handle Mug - a must have piece of gear. Very shiny when new - now not quite so much

    It is indeed a toilet in the middle of the woods, that is quite common here in Denmark.


    Regards.

    Thumbs up Toilets in the woods?

    Thanks for the recommendation on the knives, I will look into them further. I used a similar knife for years:


    You can also see that I played with forcing a patina on the above knife in this article: http://www.naturalbushcraft.co.uk/ki...ft-knives.html
    I'm happy with how it turned out

    As for the Tatonka cup - I've used a Tatonka Tarp for years which I have been very impressed with, I'll take a look at the cup too.

    Those toilets in the woods look damn convenient!

    Lovely pictures Jakob. That toilet looks like it's suspended from a tree.

    Nice knife Ashley, what make is it?

    You really should look into the Tatonka cup - and their stainless steel bottles aswell


    Regards.

    I will look at more of Tatonka's gear.

    The knife is a Tregor Woodsknife, that's all I know. got it at a bargin price at a Meetup, I heard the blacksmith or knife-maker was closing shop so they were going relatively cheap. There is more photos of the knife here: http://picasaweb.google.com/ashleyca...KnifeApril2008#
