Dave Canterbury of Pathfinder school discusses cutting tools and the one tool to multitool carry options. Good video and very interesting conclusion in so much as Dave (and I agree with him) concludes that our belt knife is essentially a butchering and food prep tool - our axe/hatchet and pocket knife are our wood craft tools ............. Now I wonder if that £200 woodlore clone is a over priced kitchen knife or a one tool option ......... well it'd have to be the later cos their crap in the kitchen!! Seriously though - good video offering us some food for thought!! Thanks Dave.
Another great weekend out - this weekend running a course for the Royal Air Force cadets. The cadets came from several squadrons and were a mixture of new and advanced cadets progressing through our bushcraft and survival programme.
About two years ago I got this excellent Laavu shelter from Finland - the shelter is made to order from a small manufacturer and is excellent - the material is a wtaerproof nylon which is lined with a reflective material making it ideal for both summer and winter use, even in the harsh finnish winters!!
