We spotted this little mention the other day (26/02/2020) on Instagram by Paul Smith of Primitive Bushcraft who was talking to another person about Beaver Bushcraft’s Amadou….what a great accolade: " They have the best Amadou I’ve ever seen. I’d definitely recommend it."
Just wanted to thank you for the walnut leather overstrike protector which arrived today. Really excellent quality - very pleased with it. Best regards. Steve.16/02/2020

"One substance in my tinder pouch that most probably don’t have, is Kapok that I get from Beaver Bushcarft in England from the lovely Helen. It’s a flash tinder like milkweed fluff or cattail. But its hollow fiber with more surface area. Amazing stuff". jw.apothecary on Instagram 04/0/2020
Got my awesome Thor’s Hammer steel pendant & Flint strikers with a handy little pouch from #beaverbushcraft – A great UK-based Bushcraft supplies store I found online. Would highly recommend anyone wanting to get into Bushcraft to them out. 'ageminidragon' on Instagram 28/01/2020

"Testing out some tinder from Beaver Bushcraft. Never tried chaga before with flint & steel before. Tried it and it works a treat, highly recommend their flint & steel sets and tinder". Prepper In The Woods, 21/01/2020 on Instagram
Lovely comment on Instagram about our Amadou on 19/01/2020 from 'Waitforwave' who says:

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
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
Just a quick message to say thank you for the cracking belt. Had it for my birthday and it did not disappoint. Great quality and craftsmanship. Regards Jon Early On 2 Feb 2019
Products picked up from the post office and very happy with them, the speed of delivery and the additional bit of tinder. Kind of you. I enjoyed your videos too. Wish others were as clear. I've left reviews on two Facebook groups with 4000 members between them. Happy to support artisans who clearly care about what they do. Best wishes, Michael ,16/02/2019
Mark, I just received my jacket and I can’t say enough how impressed I am with the quality of it. I can’t wait to try it out in the outdoors! Please pass along to Green Outdoor.Thanks! Mike 13/02/2019

Hi Guys, Me again,

Also thanks for the matching keyring, I will have good use of it! Finally, I want to thank you guys for the good service and your kindness! I will certainly recommend you to my friends whenever one is looking for this kind of gear you present on your webstore!
Kind Regards, Patrick. 25/01/2019
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....
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. And that's why I'm glad I stumbled on your little cottage industry because I love the goods you produce. Mally 12/0/1/2019
Now this is what I call a belt; lovely job - you could raise the Titanic on it! Thanks also for the additional loop, all much appreciated.
Best wishes. Roger. 11/12/2018
just to let you know I received the tin and the extras, which there really was no need for but very much appreciated, today and would like to thank you again for your efforts and the excellent personal touch. I was recommended to you by Paul Deore and will be singing your praises on all the social media sites I am active on. Regards John. 09/12/2018
Hi guys, received Amadou this morning. Wanted to thank you, and that I'm very pleased with my tinder,Looking forward to future orders. Thank you, Bill. 06/11/2018
Hi Beaver Bushcraft, I am absolutely delighted with the leather belt you made for my nephew's 21st birthday. It is beautifully made, looks superb and was made in the UK which was important to me. I am really pleased you are very busy you deserve to get so much business. Best wishes .Caroline Davies. 01/10/2018
Received my belt today, very pleased indeed. Superb quality and workmanship, and I love the colour. Thank you. J. E. 27/09/2018
I'v just came home to a lovely surprise as I wasn’t expecting my order until next week. I honestly wish I could thank you and show you my appreciation as the workman ship is such quality and beauty.Can’t thank you enough and for the complimentary tinder and key ring such a kind gesture. I truly wish you weren’t so far away as I’d have asked to learn from you. True blessings Jo 22/09/2018

Hi Just wanted to thank you for the lovely piece of Hudson bay leather pouch.. Many thanks for the mini torch which is proving very handy already. Thanks. Faisal 12/08/2018
Anyway the good bit is that the belt is brilliant .It is a relief to not have to keep hitching my trousers up. If you have a reviewing site I would be glad to mark you at 5 stars. Let me know if you do.Thanks for everything. Regards, Brian 12/08/2018
Hi, just a quick message to say thank you for such great work, very impressive & appreciated. A T (New Zealand) 10/08/2018
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
Just taken delivery of my new twin pocket medicine pouch. It's very nice indeed! You know, your level of service is excellent. AB 09/07/2018
Just received my order...Amadou fungus...superb fire lighting qualities.. excellent product.....fast delivery...... many thanks.Mal. 05/07/18
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
Hello, received my bespoke 911 professional belt & bespoke quick release belt loop. Nicely packaged, very pleased, well stitched, nice solid brass, looks great, many thanks steve 23/5/18
The black tobacco tin is great but I absolutely LOVE the mini tinderbox kit! Lots of big sparks from such a small striker and piece of flint (though not as tiny as the piece in your demo video; Impressive!). It is going to be a superb showing off kit and such great fun!!
Excellent goods and fantastic customer service, as always. Thank you once again. David 19/04/2018
Fire Storm with Leather Case
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
Bushcraft & Survival Diamond Sharpening Kit - 180/1000 grit (25-8000)
WOW! Just WOW! I used the kit last night and had amazing results with some very blunt kitchen knives, I recorded my efforts and will be placing it up on YouTube I'll let you know when it's live. I wish I'd discovered you a year ago! Craig Taylor 18/03/18. 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
Bushcraft & Survival Diamond Sharpening Kit - 180/1000 grit (25-8000)
Hi again Mark. I am extremely pleased with the pre-sale advice I received and the product itself [ the bushcraft diamond sharpening kit ]. Particularly impressed with your video tutorial…great presentation and nice to have an expert so clearly lead you by the hand into something you’ve not done before. Best wishes.

Natural Amadou Tinder 'PREMIUM QUALITY' (5g) - Horse Hoof Fungus Pieces (85-4050)
Just a thank you note - got some Amadou from you, and I'm a happy customer - top quality product, great communication, and all-round good experience ...thank you! - Ash. 23/02/2018. Click Here To View
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.

Will definately buy from them again, and always look there first when shopping for bushcraft products. If i get good service i tend to stick with the same companies. I would put B B in same league a Ray Mears woodlore for customer service, simply the best! Regards, Chris Carter17/01/18
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

Everything was “OUTSTANDING IN EVERYWAY”……….Your Sulphur Spill Matches performed exceptionally well and I’ll be using them in my teachings in the future.
Thank You, Stephen G. USA
