    Hi guys I’ve had a bit of a disaster,I’m lost my trusted knife and feeling gutted about it.So I’m going to give it a couple of weeks to see if it turns up but I have my doubts, so I’ll be looking for a new one.
    Woodlore clone in carbon steel any recommendations welcome.

    I know that feeling, it's the worst! Luckily mine turned up, had slipped under the back seat of the truck.... I'm really liking Mark Jacobs stuff of late (mark.177 of this parish) Also think about if a woody is what you want, I moved over to a Canadian Belt Knife and don't reach for my woody anymore...

    Just a thought, hope it turns up fella!

    Blaze orange paracord lanyard :)

    I do sympathise, I’ve lost knives too, but two of them I found in the woodland where I was working we’re due to bright lanyards. One caught the chainsaw as I was mashing up brash and spat orange fibres bunging up my chain. The other was bright red, same as the the Rowan and Hawthorn berries, but the splash of colour caught my eye.

    A Byrd Meadowlark and a Benchmade Griptilian saved. :)

    I remember when I lost my SAK farmer, I was so convinced that I would never find it again that I went and bought a replacement, which was a guaranteed way to ensure that the original turned up soon after. I have done that several times with several things not just knives.
