      Very swish Martin. Good work there, the wife is in IT so I know how much effort this has taken to do. Thankyou! We'll all be used to it in no time, change is no fun at my age but... Luckily (?) I'm off work with flu so can get used to it and enjoy!

      Have fun. I only had two 12 hour days at it before I got almost to where I wanted SotP I am sure you will have less hassle though since you actually know what you are doing.

      Until I did a google search for BB I thought the site had crashed or something as my links to it won't work! However, now I've found it, the new look looks very interesting. Good luck to all involved with the transition - I hope its not too stressful.

      Nice One Martyn,

      A lot easier on the Eyes. I do miss the old header a bit though. Was quite classy.

      Seems to be faster now too.

      Off to re-orientate myself

      Well. I'm shocked. No doubt the new back-end is smoother, more efficient and perhaps cheaper to run, but Geez! BB's former dark black UI was one of my favorites and as a Web pro, it's nice to land in a sexy UI. Please help me understand why I'm feeling this way, but I congratulate you if this is what you want and need.
      Thanks for the kind hosting BTW.

    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

    Plenty has been written here and elsewhere about standard issue military kukri. Here are some examples of kukri which I would consider to be made for and carried by officers during WW1, and possibly later. As officers of this period were expected to purchase their own uniform, equipment and...

    Homebrew anti scale compound?

    Thread Starter: mikew

    I want to try making some anti scale compound and was hoping for some tips. I'm thinking of using fire clay and silica sand mixed with water to make a paste. I've also read about adding charcoal to the mix..... Has anyone done this? Could the same paste also be used for hamon? Thanks

    Alan Wood Bowie ??????

    Thread Starter: hastiekid

    Hi Guys, just going through my Knives after not looking at them for a couple of years and got my eye in this Bowie. It was given to me about ten years ago by my father and I know nothing about it. It has "A Wood England" engraved on the blade. Does it look like an early Alan Wood creation ?

    Help identifying a knife

    Thread Starter: subwoofer

    The photos show two knives made in Finland. The modern one is a Marttiini Lynx knife 134, but the older one with two blades I cannot identify (mainly through lack of knowledge about makers). I have owned it for around 25 years having been given it by my father, who had owned it but didn't know...
