Museum piece, or the perfect cookset for the end of days?
Well, I dont know about the post-apocalyptic bit, but I like this stove loads and although production of the SIGG cookset stopped about 1990, I think it's hard to beat.
The cookset is very reminiscent of the trangia set, is about the same size and weight and works in a similar way, with some crucial differences though. It was made in several flavours and different materials (though most ...by
Outfitting the Land Rover Defender 90 for Wild Camping.
Part1: The "Cook Partner" expedition double burner stove from Partner Steel.
My interests in camping have been moving away from the "hump it in a bag on your back" to "hump it in a large four wheel drive vehicle" for a while now. I suppose it's an age thing. I remember when I hit 30, the slight sense of relief that I was now allowed to be boring and not to go out on a Friday night. It's with a similar sense of relief with 45 looming, that I feel I am now allowed to drive my Land Rover to my chosen campsite and live with significant decadence out of the back of it. No more sore shoulders and mile after mile of staring at my feet. Truth be told, I havent trudged more than a mile or two for some time now, ...

Thought I'd give this a go. Sorry if it's been tried before but I quite like the version on the other side of the pond. Everyone gets a bit creative with their camera's... Plus it's a nice opportunity to see what's out there....:) SamLast Post By: pagant Yesterday, 04:15 PMsal
Years ago, there was a long discussion on making a forum knife for the BB forum. After much discussion, it was narrowed to two models (a Native Slipit and a custom design). We made two protos and sent them in to BB. As it turned out, the Native model was selected. Then the Golden factory ended...Last Post By: mikehill Yesterday, 06:42 PMNice65
Ok, this looks like a go. :) The knife is an Urban leaf blade in Elmax, handle is British Racing Green FRN, it will carry the BB logo. So, a list is needed for numbers. Sal will produce at least 100 to keep the collectors happy, what are we going to add to the list? 1. Nice65 x 1 2....and...Last Post By: SlimJim16v Today, 12:08 AMpolecat
Pictured below is my Mk 2 AA TX200, best spring rifle I ever owned, consistently very accurate and powerful. Came with the Beech stock which is functional but heavy and boring so for a while I have thought about changing it, Was in one of the Gun shops a couple of weeks ago and had hold of a TX...Last Post By: Renegade Master Yesterday, 09:09 AMkris j

As a relative newcomer I often find myself confused by these, so I'm putting them into their own thread for everyone. This is a work in progress and some of these may be Americanisms or irrelevant. I only know a bit about knives and torches, so post anything useful and I'll add it. Forum Addy...Last Post By: Fergy Yesterday, 01:35 PMKD Knives
Hello ! :) This is my first post here, so first I want to say couple words about me :) My name is Kamil Długosz, I'm 20 years old and I live in Poland. I started making knives about 4 years ago. I use mostly Bohler& Uddeholm steels like N690, Elmax and M390, for handle I prefer G10, Micarta...Last Post By: KD Knives Yesterday, 12:33 PMSilverJohn
Hi there, I never really had much of an interest in knives beyond a trusty SAK or Leatherman until around May last year. That was when I first spotted some interesting modern kukri and learned a bit about the range of styles within kukri (hence my handle, though I've got noting to do with Tora,...Last Post By: spiraltwista Yesterday, 11:54 PMgjclayton
This is not meant to offend but maybe start a conversation. Would anyone have an issue (and it is totally understandable if you did) using real, antique human bones as knife handle material?! ...Last Post By: Moonz Yesterday, 10:45 PM
