Last weekend I put a big effort into churning out some new leather projects. My laplander saw doesn’t have it’s own sheath and that has been on the cards for a while (as with a sheath for my Mora knife but I haven’t got round to designing my ideal mora sheath yet). Also something that I felt necessary after some very unsuccessful fire starting attempts because of all this rain was a tinder pouch that I can carry my ferrocerium rod (I’d like a traditional fire steel at some point that’d be interesting, or even some pyrite for an even more primordial approach!) and some nice dry tinder!
Then I was on the tube the other day coming back from watching War Horse (the show, not the film) with my girlfriend and thought that a couple of oyster card holders were on the cards too since our plastic free ones are tatty and getting broken. War Horse was an amazing show by the way, very heartfelt. The horses are incredible, the actors moving the horses really capture the movement of horses well and that is only built further upon by the amazing mechanics behind the horses. You can see all the parts of the horses moving with a great deal of intricacy and after a while you begin to forget there are people there, that the horse is mechanical and you begin to look at the horses as if they are real. Great show!
