      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

    New camping (food prep) knife options

    Thread Starter: burntrice

    I've been using the Spyderco Bill Moran but fancy a change. The majority of use is for food prep and I find the 3mm blade thickness gets 1/2 way through whatever I've cutting and just snaps the rest rather than cut. What to you guys use for food prep? I cant seem to find anything thin enough,...
