      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

    Forum knife? - Discussion

    Thread Starter: sal

    Years ago, there was a long discussion on making a forum knife for the BB forum. After much discussion, it was narrowed to two models (a Native Slipit and a custom design). We made two protos and sent them in to BB. As it turned out, the Native model was selected. Then the Golden factory ended...

    I've been seeing a few things crop up recently with, shall we say, potentially unsafe handling of materials. So I thought it might be worth kicking the subject about a bit, discussing the potential hazards and ways of avoiding them... As far as I am concerned, virtually everything in the...

    Great design, but since it locks, you can't just pop it in your wallet and forget about it, so it kinda shoots itself in the foot :(

    British Military Kukri

    Thread Starter: SilverJohn

    Hi there, I never really had much of an interest in knives beyond a trusty SAK or Leatherman until around May last year. That was when I first spotted some interesting modern kukri and learned a bit about the range of styles within kukri (hence my handle, though I've got noting to do with Tora,...
