      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 .

    how do I tell if it really is titanium?

    Thread Starter: pyntee

    I just bought a titanium spork randomly on Amazon because of reasonable price and my favor to the logo. It is lightweight, but how do I tell if it really is titanium?

    Leuku or not?

    Thread Starter: Abyrvalg

    Don't really know if this knife can be called leuku... )) But anyways, this is collaborative project with Nova Scotian blade smith Rick Marchand, who forged this awesome blade. Steel is 52100 high carbon steel, addition of 1.5% chromium makes it less prone to rust than most of carbon steels...

    Compact, durable rollerball pen

    Thread Starter: GeoffWood

    I'm on the hunt for a decent quality rollerball pen. I have a Kaweco Liliput fountain pen which I like a lot, but Kaweco don't do a similar rollerball. Something on the scale of the Liliput would be ideal. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    For those of a certain age or discerning taste for high quality rugged functional tents.... I give you the Phazor Dome from Ultimate Equipment. One of six Ultimate/Phoenix tents in my loft. For those who do not get excited by what is now considered "vintage" tents I suggest you hit the back arrow...
