5.0 out of 5 stars Find your own way..., 29 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Even tho, I'm a knife collector and quite serious Hiker/Bushcrafter I became tired of all those 'survivalist' type folks selling you knives with the motto "bigger is better"! Do you really need 5 inch blade to take along when you're hiking just to put some jam on your croissant? Need to open a can? You won't use that 5inch blade for that anyway, striking a ferro-rod? Most of those big suckers are coated or got beveled edge, so you need a special striker for that,

Batoning a wood? Yes, that big blade might be useful for this, but are you batoning a wood on every hike?...I think you got the idea. Anyway it's a great knife for the price, lock mechanism is strong, quality amazing and you're getting all the useful tools you may need when out and about city-boy, great as a back-up tool too. Did I mention that you can use the spine of the wood saw to strike your ferro-rod?

See you on the trail!

Loved the taste, i bought them in local TKmaxx for....1.49. But 7 quid for a tin that small it's just plain crazy....

5.0 out of 5 stars BPA free bottle that fits standard military MOLLE type pouch, 12 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
No leakage, plus for me is the transparent bottle which is much better to have in my opinion than standard plastic military grade canteen bottle. It will fit the canteen cup and pouch with no problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars No fuel needed, 12 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
...just your muscles;) absolutely love it, works best on shorter grass, nice clean cut. I'm not using that basket included so no idea if the grass would land in it, but I suppose some folks are right here saying that most of the gras will land away from basket. Highly rcommended.

There is a whole lot of uses for it, fishing is just one of them. Well made, rust-proof, indestructable. Highly recommended!

Outdoor Survival Handbook: A Guide To The Resources And Materials Available In The Wild And How To Use Them For Food, Shelter,Warmth And Navigation
by Ray Mears
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.09

4.0 out of 5 stars Some great and valuable tips in this book, 1 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Probably you already know some of that stuff that is in this book if you're following Ray Mears closely and like his style and his connection with nature, but there is always something you'll find new and useful in your outdoor/bushcraft pursuits. Some great tips about whittling, pottery, water collection and more, highly recommended.

P.S

Although it might come to you as a shock (if you're just starting your adventure with bushcraft/survival) that you don't need to do a backflip before every task or fill your canteen with your own urine when you're thirsty in other words to much of that action man documentary on Discover channel;)

OK, we all know that these two never come in pair, but I was quite suprised when it arrived, quality is great. My Gf loves it, although it's bit bigger than her old wallet. I'm impressed!

5.0 out of 5 stars KISS methodology prime example, 1 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Leak proof design, so you can put your fuel inside and put the ready-to-use stove in your backpack.
"Must have" for any outdoor enthusiast that likes to travel light and with minimal kit.
The only problem is, that depends on the fuel used, flame might not be visible and if you'll try to add some fuel...you might end up with some problems. Just make sure to put out the flame first and also make sure that the stove is cooled down before you'll put the screw cap on, so you won't melt the rubber seal inside of the cap(but even if you do, you can get the replacement seals<pack of 2> for £2 in your local outdoor store).
Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Comfy, cheap, easy to pack, smells horrible, 1 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Only problem for me was that horrible smell kinda like rubber, petroleum and other funky smells mixed all together, but when you'll leave it for a day or two outside your house, it should be fine to use as a pillow.
