How to Choose the Perfect Survival Knife

Great article by the How to Choose the Perfect Survival Knife:

Editor’s note: This is a guest post from Creek Stewart of Willow Haven Outdoor.

I don’t remember my first kiss or even who it was with. I can barely recollect getting my license to drive. I vaguely remember my high school graduation and my entire time spent at college is a blur. However, I remember exactly where I was, what I was wearing, and how I felt when I got my first survival knife over 20 years ago. Just thinking about it brings back some of my fondest childhood memories. It was the RAMBO knife with the hollow handle that housed a little fishing kit along with a few other miscellaneous items. My love affair with knives began at a young age, and I’ve been hooked ever since. Movies seem to always have the coolest survival knives, but does the survival knife really have a place in the “real world?”

That was a rhetorical question. Yes, it most certainly does.

Arktis Launches New Site:
If you’re an Arktis fan, you may have noticed their absence from the web for some time. But, now they’re back with an all new website. UK-based Arktis was started in the mid-80s by a Royal Marine veteran of the Falkland Campaign.

Wax stove

Some time ago i read in an article (i cannot remember where) about some littles stoves using wax and sawdust, instead of the "traditional" wax and cardboard version.

It made my curious. I made a plan in my mind, a simple stove using a shoe grease box. It toked my some time until i got every ingredient. A old and used out grease box, some saw dust collected from an old sawmill and a wax candle.

To make it very simple, you melt 2 parts of saw dust and 1 part wax in an pan over boiling water (don't make it directly over the fire because there is the risk of the wax over heat and caught on fire). Let it be over the boiling water for some time to the saw dust soak the wax. To Finnish just compact everything in the box and you are ready.

Being  a regular user of an alcohol stove  i was curios how this stove would perform, so i prepared a quick test. 0,5L of water in my Trangia. All test were made in my kitchen i a "controlled" environment. 

To this test i used the…

Rant of the day.

Great reflexion by Rant of the day.: "OK Im going to have a little rant today,I don't normally rant on my blog but I want to bring up a couple of issues concerning the term bushcraft and the issues some folks have with the term bushcraft.

Now you have all heard people say that they are outdoors-men-woman and that they had never heard the term bushcraft before yet it seems they where practicing it without even knowing it.Well Im one of those people.

Now it seems some folks have a real issue with the term bushcraft and are quite pedantic about this,those people seem to be mainly re-enactors.

Now I have nothing against re-enactors and if they want to run around the woods with musket in hand dressed like they just walked out of the 18th century that is fine with me,In fact its more than fine as i really enjoy watching these re-enactments.

An introduction to the axe

Good article from An introduction to the axe: "The internet is both a goldmine and a minefield. On one hand you can dig out nuggets of truth and helpfulness, and with the other find only nuggets of the brown, soft variety. This is especially the case when it comes to axes, hatchets and all things relating to their use and modification.

For some time now I have posted on various forums regarding purchasing, modifying, sharpening, using and maintaining axes. My opinion and views have been developed over years of using axes and working on them. For this reason, I find it amusing that there are experts cropping up everywhere who's favourite tool is a shiny new Gransfors Bruks axe, that has seen more time in front of a camera than out in the woods. For the most part, the knowledgable folks I know prefer old, beat up looking axes that they have grown to love over years of use. This is what I look for when searching for an authority on the subject…
