      Great video and very inspiring. The only thing which prevents me trying is the lack of a forge!

      Check out the diy forge videos on youtube, easy enough to make something to heat treat blades.

      A really good video it inspires me to try making knives again just one thing though I don't want to sound like your nanny but please cover the point and cutting edge with a few layers of gaffer /masking tape when its left in the vice or on the bench it is so easy to rip yourself by accident. If you should go for something on the bench your hand is moving pretty fast and fingers up to forearms are vulnerable, I speak from experience .

    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....:) Sam

    Zombie blades sale ban

    Thread Starter: Aliwren

    The description of what a 'zombie knife' is seems so open to interpretation I can see large fixed blade knives being affected. People could genuinely be arguing about whether a knife is designed for use against a zombie or not :rolleyes: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-37080682

    Food flasks - Stanley versus Thermos

    Thread Starter: Nice65

    As the weather has been so miserable of late, I began to get tempted by food flasks. It's not very enjoyable setting up a stove in the wind and rain, but nice to have some hot soup or whatever to warm you up. I decided that 0.5 ltr would be big enough for my needs and read as many reviews as I...

    Leatherman - UK Legal?

    Thread Starter: DogSoldier73

    Hi all, I'm in the market to get a multitool which will probably stay in the car....Looking at some of the different models from Leatherman I see some of them have locking blades....would that make them illegal if i had one of those in the car? Cheers

    Handle placement?

    Thread Starter: Stew

    Trying to decide on the placement for this wood on the knife I'm making for my wife. Of course, she doesn't want to tell me what she thinks with any of it before hand so no pressure! I'm sure she'll tell me if it's not right soon enough afterwards..... Using a stencil of the handle is handy,...

    Martin, the guy who owns Highland Horn, kindly let me visit his place up on the Black Isle last week. Really nice bloke (looks as scary as hell though!), he let me collect a load of horn and other consumables and I was able to cherry pick some of his white streaked, water buffalo horn. Still...
