Hello i just received my fire kit and im amazed at the quality of the stuff. Im so glad that i ordered from your website. Thanks, Dejan Seguljski, 08/09/2020

We have recieved some lovely emails this month about our products & service at Beaver Bushcraft :

  • Hello, I am very happy with my amadou! Whoever packaged it was kind enough to add a little extra for no extra cost, so I would like to extend my thanks to Beaver Bushcraft for your generosity! I have tried extracting and processing tinder fungus myself in the past, but the results weren't like this at all, your product is beautifully smooth and spongy and takes a spark very easily! Kind regards, Andy Higgs, 31/08/2020 

  • Received my order - delighted with it, well worth the wait! Thanks you, Keith Mitchell. 31/08/2020 Hand Made Bespoke Leather 
  • Hi Mark & team. I would like to say thank you so much. I admire your skill, I am also envious as I can't make anything as good as what you do although I am practical.  Stay safe. Kind regards, Mike Freeman. 26/08/2020: Bespoke Leather Work    
  • Hi Mark, Thanks for your nice words in your answer on my mail. I also thank you for the way of solving the problem concerning the missing item, well done. I wish you all the best and it was a pleasure for me to have contact with you. Kind greetings, Tonny, 25/08/2020. (When things go missing in the post we still do our best to resolve a situation and this was the lovely customer response to our quick action). 
  • Hi Helen and Mark, Just a little thank you for upgrading my order from 10g to 20g you guys are the best. Take care and be safe. Steve B, Edinburgh, 25/08/2020

 Some feed back from our July Customers:

  • Hi Mark and Hels,  Picked up my order tonight and I have to say this has made my day! The 911 belt is flawless and made to perfection. For me it has a practical use for carrying my keys, lighter pouch and multitool. Also, in my line of work, as a commercial heating engineer, we sometimes have to lift and move hugely heavy components into place. Therefore the belt acts also as a back brace support. This is just what I need, you have my deepest gratitude, this will really make a difference in my work.  Now for the second part. The Fire Starter kit, iron and nut meg pouch was for my granddaughter. You should have seen the look on her face when she was given it, and the exhilaration on it when she made her own fire using the "old ways"!.  Cheers my friends. Probably your mast impressed and satisfied customer.  Darren Snow  (UK)  29/07/20 
  • Just wanted to let you know that I received my tinder bag and Sea horse striker. Very pleased. And the tinder and flint was a welcome surprise that makes me want to tell others about your site and products. Job well done! I'll be back. Mike Mullins  Moon Walker Outdoors 27/07/20
  • Received and very pleased with it all. Martin Burdon 21/07/20 
  • Hi Mark, I got my order today, Everything thing looks great! My husband is wicked excited to try out his new fire lighting kit!  Thank you, ~ Rachel 01/07/20

Handmade Viking Style Leather Cuff 

Cuff by beaver bushcraft

Hi Mark, Just to say the leather cuff I ordered arrived in time for the photo shoot (I think it’s tomorrow). I appreciate you getting the order out so quickly.

On the upside: I’m going to order the mahogany red heart cuff so there is some choice as to props/what to wear (I would have ordered them both at the same time had I saw them, but I think these only just went up), and because my friend loves your work. Very best to you and the small team around you. I am thrilled people have been especially enjoying what you create and sell over lockdown. Best, Gerard. (UK) 17/06/2020

Fire Lighting Kits for Teaching 

We found this lovely review from The Copper Campsite (based in sunny Cornwall) on Instagram the other day, we just had to share it as we were feeling the love!

Beaver Bushcraft are a wonderful British Bushcraft and handmade leather goods company, I bought all of this fire starting kit from them last year because this year I was intending on showing guests, if they were interested, how to make a fire the ancient way. They are a fabulous family company, I told them what I wanted and they delivered admirably. Especially now, when people may be going a little stir crazy, if you are lucky enough to have a garden, an outdoor space or even a solid fuel fire...why not have a look

on their website and put together a wee kit so you can learn, on your own or with your children, how to light a fire. It's a lovely thing to do...maybe start with a ferrocerium rod and then progress to a flint and steel as in the pics, or maybe just get a selection and work your way through. Have a look at their selection, the steels are great quality, many made by great British blacksmiths and the flint is all British sourced. I believe they ship worldwide and If you need help, message Helen and Mark, they will be glad to help you. A true gem of a British company who will gladly help you out. James @ The Copper Campsite.

Hi Team. Postie has just been. Yet again a collection of goodies to delight. This time its for friends as gifts.This is to say a BIG thank you. I or my daughter will be back shopping with you again soon.YOURS. John Ruston.Northern Ireland. 04/05/2020

Hello, i just wanted to say that i recieved the kit today and thank you for it! It's a really cool little flint and steel kit and thank you for the extra amadue and flints that you sent. I was working on getting it to spark ( I'm new to the flint and steel ) My friend anxiously watched me to no avail and so she said let me see it, she wanted to see if she could get it to spark and she did! So im going to practice. I want to go back to your website and watch that video on it that shows you using it. The kit is really awesome and compact and can fit in a small pants or shirt pocket! I'm going to put the brimstone matches and small candles in a little bits and bobs necessities tin im making up! Thanks again! You guys are awesome and your site is full of cool bushcraft items. I'm going to recommend you to all the people who i know like camping and bushcraft. Thanks again for taking time to respond to me and the great customer service. I hope to order more in the future. Keep in touch. Angie Collins. USA 18/04/20

Leather Bottle Holder 

We recently did a little Give Away for some very special Key Workers and asked their friends to nominate them. Here is one message that we received back, made it all seem worthwhile. Since then we decided to make some more and this time put them on the website with the proceeds going to our lovely NHS workers.......

Heya Helen, just a quick note to say, a BIG thank you for the sanitiser holder you awarded and sent to my friend Deborah Coaten. I was made up, welled up and so chuffed. She had her birthday on the day you told her and that also made her very happy as none of us could be with her, so thank you again, R. Pickering.UK. 05/04/20

Hi! All my new stuff has arrived safe and sound. I'm a wee bit emotional just now, but I'll message again at some point with a probably lengthy and wistful email! The belt fits perfectly and is simply gorgeous. I'm so pleased with it all. Postie virtually threw the parcel at me which was funny! And no signing required, which is something to bear in mind from a business point of view. Anyway, I'll be in touch again soon! Thank you so much! Alan B. UK. 24/03/2020

Irish ‘R’ Flint & Steel Striker Temp Sold Out   

Hi Mark,I finally got "home" a few weeks ago and received your package. What a joy to use and a beautiful shape.Thanks also for the flint. I especially appreciate how one piece fits right into the jaws of my lock and makes nice contact with the frizzen.

The piece for napping is perfect for my bag too. I'm using it both as a "strike a lite" and a source of backup flint for the flintlocks. It's really liberating knowing I won't run out of flint for fire or flintlock in case I ever end up out much longer than intended. Thanks again!  James 09/04/2019

Vintage Leather Pouch

Thank you yet again for the excellent products, first class friendly service. This is all so much appreciated Hels and Mark. 

Do you know Hels and Mark, dealing with Beaver Bushcraft isn't remotely like doing business at all. Not in any sense of the word. From ordering to delivery, you guys offer that personal touch so well, that one knows it is heartfelt as one would offer to friends.. And as such, as each purchase is made and received, along with the extras too, I feel I'm coming to know you as such, just that, friends.. I love this little pouch guys. My Hudson Bay tin has gone straight into it. Thank you yet again Hels and Mark. Kindest of regards, Mally 14/03/2019

When you invest in a Beaver Bushcraft product, you are investing in a piece of history. Holding one of their products in your hands will transfer you back in time, a time when things were built to last. A time when you knew that when the proverbial hit the fan, you didn’t need to worry whether your kit was going let you down. Their attention to detail is second to none. Their customer services goes above and beyond. All of this is backed up with a YouTube channel to show you how to use and take care of your new favourite piece of kit. Thanks Hels and Mark. Mark Eldington-Booth 19/02/2019

 This is just a little snippet of a lovely email we received this morning from an equally lovely customer called Mally. We loved his testimonial so much we turned it into a mini blog. To read his full testimonial please click here or just read below for a little snippet of what he said....

The Shark Bushcraft Knife.

Hi there Helen and Mark

I have to say, wow! Just wow! I am over the moon to say the least. The knife, sheath and fero rod are just pure quality..  And it hasn't been an easy ride getting to this point of satisfaction Helen and Mark. 

And I ordered! I'm not disappointed at all. This is my lifetime bushcraft knife and it's going to get well used., I have been involved in bushcraft and survival for around 40 years, although it was all just survival in the early days. I've gone through the gear stages as we do, and now it's about less gear, but quality gear that I know is going to last me many years and even a lifetime in some cases.

Hand Stitched Zippo Pouches  

Hi! Just received my Hudson Bay and Zippo pouches. Very pleased indeed. They are beautiful pieces of work, lovely to handle, superb.  

And free gifts! They're actually useful too! Brilliant. I feel quite spoiled! The Hudson Bay pouch is just right for the job I had in mind. The only drawback is that it really would look better with an appropriate tinder box inside . . ! So I guess I'm going to have to get one for it! Chuckle. I shall have a look shortly. I've been after a decent Zippo case for years. Most versions I've seen have press studs on the belt loop. Not particularly secure. Your versions are great. Proper leather, properly made. Built to last! Cool.It's a genuine pleasure dealing with you. I've found you approachable, honest and, of course, your broad knowledge and experience makes it all very interesting!Thanks again! Best regards, Alan 05/08/2018

The Irish Traditional Fire Steel

Just managed to avoid setting fire to me shorts. Lol.Seriously, I've had a few steels over 40-odd years, some broken, some stolen, some gifted away. This one is a delight and, assuming my son doesn't appropriate it, will be a much valued companion! The Irish style striker is a beautiful piece. I really like the way it sits on the hand. Lovely. I'm very pleased with how quickly it arrived too! AB 01/07/2018

Excellent goods and fantastic customer service, as always. Thank you once again. David 19/04/2018

Hi Mark, I meant to email you much earlier to let you know I received the order. It is magnificent, the tool itself (bellows) is such a smart bit of kit, and the leather sheath is simply gorgeous. What a treat, also, and so very kind and thoughtful of you, to include a small bag of kapok! I'm super excited to use it. Thanks, again, and best wishes to you and the spring season.- Leslie  09/04/2018.  Click Here To View

Mini Pocket Parabolic Solar Mirror with Leather Pouch + Tinder Bundle (85-5010) 

I'm happy to say your parabolic mirror arrived safely yesterday with accompanying tinder and sulphur matches. Given today's intense snow flurries I was not hopeful about trying it out, but we had a period of blue sky, so I had a chance to test it with a tin of charred punk wood. Despite a cold wind and a light dusting of snow falling, your mirror managed to create a good ember in less than a minute. Very impressive, given the adverse conditions, so this will be a permanent addition to my flint and steel kit. Thanks again for making good products.Kind regards,Gordon,Nottingham,18/03/2018

 Hello, I just received my order today I am more than satisfied. Very beautiful material. High quality. I will recommend on your site. Thanking you cordially. Mr Johnson  08/03/2018

Dear Mark , Just to say that the sheaths arrived safely this afternoon:  thank you - they are absolutely magnificent.  I am out very early tomorrow and all day, but I will try to write something that does them justice.  You are, truly, an artist and craftsman of rare quality. With tremendous respect and very many thanks indeed. An imaginative designer and a gifted artist, I was impressed by a pouch I bought from his website, and asked him to create somewhat unusual custom sheaths for my two favourite bushcraft knives - the work he produced was both beautiful and extremely practical.  The quality of the leatherwork is first class and I am absolutely delighted. Himself evidently an outdoorsman,  what sets him apart is his understanding of the practical aspects of design as form follows function. The sheaths are magnificent and will outlast me.  Unlike me, they will only get better with age.  You won’t find better:  I cannot praise his work too highly. Yours aye, Stephen Dudley 28/02/2018

 Traditional Hudson Bay Brass Tinder Box with Hand Forged Fire Steel (85-2010-BR)

For the record the “Hudsons Bay” tinderbox,  it’s a fab piece of kit! Well made with that authentic feel about it, with quality tinder inside, it’s good to go right out of the box! I tried this kit out immediately after the postie dropped it off, first with the magnifying glass around 09.30 and it worked a treat, even in mid January! Next with Flint & Steel, a bit longer this time, about 5 mins to get a good technique (actually forgot just how to do it!!!) and it was just perfect. On my Woodland Wayer Course two summers ago, it took me 2x30 min sessions to actually get an ember to a flame. Well pleased with the kit, a living piece of history - still good today as it ever was! Martin Spearman. 30/01/2018.

Cant think of how to describe the quality of the leather work by Beaver Bushcraft they make some of the very best leather goods I have ever seen in over 50 years.  I really think that other companys should learn from you in the production of the very highest quality hand made leather kit for people who want the best. With the nicest customer service I have known. Ed Brann  10/01/2018

Hello Mark, Just a quick note to say I received my order (Hudson Bay) yesterday. Very nice. Tried it out, and had a glowing char, then a flaming jute nest in no time. 

Thanks for the generous amount of flint. Should last a lifetime. I only wish gun flints were priced as cheaply, comparatively over here. 

I am new to the whole Bushcraft way. Usually camp in forestry campsites with picnic tables and car access.  Once again, thanks. Am glad I came across one of your u tube videos.   Mitch McCrea.  Maple Ridge, B.C. Canada
