    What EDC are you carrying today?

    Thread Starter: avoidspam

    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

    I have a Skrama!

    Thread Starter: Muskett

    I have a Skrama, it arrived today. Testing will have to wait, so this is a my first impression. I really like it. Its not often when someone comes up with a design that is unusual, though something that we have been asking for for yonks but didn't quite know what we wanted. Well in the...

    Victorinox farmer first thoughts

    Thread Starter: Sieddy

    Hi guys I got my first Victorinox Farmer and I love it! Mine has orange Alox scales which look fantastic and the whole package is nice and slim! :) And the saw is awesome for such a small thin price of metal. A couple of minor niggles are; its hard to open the blade as you have to get your nail...

    Dropped my favourite watch

    Thread Starter: bagman

    I traded a Glycine Combat 7 here a few more months ago, superb watch with a very clear face. It's been my main non-work watch since I received it. It's usually on an old school light grey RAF style NATO that's very soft and flexible but makes it easy to slip through the fingers. A couple...

    Anvils - a beginner buyers guide

    Thread Starter: Everything Mac

    First of all I want to make it very clear that if you’re just starting out in blacksmithing you DO NOT NEED a “London Pattern anvil” to start hitting hot metal on. London pattern anvils are usually very expensive (your location in the world makes a big difference) not to mention relatively...

    Hammock / tree tent

    Thread Starter: mojofilter

    Seen something a few months back on face ache, was like a hammock but ratchet straps between 3 trees giving what looked like quite a stable platform. I now have bit of pine forest to develop, but it's quite thick no room for a tent on any ground that isn't soaking. Anyone got any ideas?

    Thread Starter: minds_eye

    Last night, I was browsing the web, looking for the date that lock knives were deemed to be classed as non-folding. In the midst of my search, I came across a site which states the following, re the definition of a lock knife: "Section 139 of the Criminal Justice Act 1988 aptly describes the...
