you could get a dog pack or something similar and that big dog could help you carry your kit. also you could take a bicycle and put some panniers on too.

I use an Opinel No.4 it pretty much goes everywhere with me, I personally have never found a blade that can get an edge and hold it like Opinels.
The only downside is if it gets too wet, sometimes the handle swells and it can be a bitch to get the blade open.

I use one of these as a saw, Japanese folded steel, can't beat IMO

When choosing a knife for me it has to be something exotic

swords and daggers are some of my main interests, I really want a saxon sword, but I haven't been able to find the one I am actually looking for.

Neither will effectively do the job of the other, The Gransfors axes are supposed to be very good although i dont own one. You really need both, you cant beat a Frost mora or clipper for the price, they can take a real battering, easy to sharpen, keeps a good edge and cost peanuts.

Yep thats the one,very inexpensive but a real workhorse, if i bought something expensive a Woodlore for example, i would be too scared of damaging it, a knife is a tool at the end of the day but thats just my opinion.
And i suppose i'm a bit of a hypocrite actually, when it comes to watches thats a different matter ................

But i welded it and now it is a very solid piece of kit.

The first one which broke i took back and got another one, then the second one broke aswell so thats the one which got welded.

So the tang was designed very poorly......

I recently bought one of these

And so far so good........ but i have only had it a day and not had the chance to give it a good field test... But check out these videos.......

I've had one of the Victorinox Boning knives for years and would recommend it as a good all rounder to anybody.



Competitively priced too at under £10 from this website.

Loved the Swedish axe destruction video
