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.

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: renton Today, 12:21 PMJedidiah
As many of us know, it's infectious. May i be the first to stand up and say 'My name is Jedidiah and i'm a Kifaru addict!' Seeing as there are many 'Ah,.......' threads concerning sharp and shineys, i thought, as i'm sure there are many other 'enthusiasts', i'd start the 'K' thread.

Hi guys, Having had a chat with Bardster I find that the only weekend in September that the farm would be available for us would be Sat 13 and Sun14th. I'm guess that arrival on the Friday would be OK too. Paul is too busy with a house move to do more than book a loo for us if we need it....Last Post By: Lathe dog Today, 12:29 AMRu Titley
Sorry I've not been around much just loads on at the minute . I thought it might be wise to start a Ru projects thread rather than keep on posting individual ones up as it will be easier for me to maintain long term as long as You folks still like to see what Ive been up too ;).

Hi guys. Just finished my first design for a hard use utility/survival knife... which i call The Crocodile.

Afternoon all As the title says really. I've just bought a new house that needs a lot of work done to it. My old cordless drill died a few years back and for the odd job I needed I just used my corded hammer drill. Now I think the majority of tasks I will be using it for is as a driver for...Last Post By: renton Today, 11:05 AMSteel Nutter
Hi guys,I apologise if this has been done i couldn't find it. Anyway as the title what's your favourite overall steel. Like if you could only have one knife what steel would it be? I like my tool steels so d2 would be mine.Last Post By: JonathanD Today, 11:21 AMdevon stalker
