    By John Fenna

    For many people, in many locations, the summer months can be spoilt by the over eager attentions of biting and stinging insects.

    Merrell Chameleon 5

    We received a couple of pairs of Merrell Chameleons a while ago, I've been reviewing the Shoe version while Matt has been reviewing the Boot version, you can see what he's got to say about the MID version HERE. It's worth pointing out that he's a size 8 and I'm a 13 so quite a difference.

    By Matt Wigglesworth


    We are at one of our camp grounds. A beautiful spot near a running stream, with views of green rolling hills under the cover of trees. The tarp is up and we’re ready to make fire and I’m more than ...

    By Tony

    I saw something on bushcraft uk a while ago that inspired me to sit down for a few minutes and make a few tree hooks, I think I'd seen them with a belt holding them in place but I figured that a piece of paracord would be easiest, this is the result. ...

    Part one can be found here

    So last time we touched on a basic introduction to foraging including why foraging is so rewarding, basic law and what you could call common sense with a touch of general etiquette. All straight forward stuff so far and exactly how it should be!

    Woodsman Folding Knife
    By Craig Birse-Johnson

    What drew me to it more than the others was its interesting “wasp like” shape. That combined with its solid look made me think it would be a good pocket knife for the tasks I normally do.
