We were recently contacted by James Ian David Lankester, who had previuosly purchased one of our traditional fire steels. James was so pleased with his Fire Steel that he asked us if we could put together a trditional Fire Lighting Instructors kit so that he can teach Flint & Steel Fire Lighting down at his Campsite in Cornwall, 'The Copper Pot Campsite' based in the beautiful Tamar Valley. We willingly obliged and it sparked an idea off for a new listing. Keep an eye out for our new Instructors Kit coming out soon :)

We were absolutely blown away when we were tagged in with these pictures from Ellis and his buddy John. They bought a couple of our Make Your Own leather Sheath kits and this is the standard they produced. I think we are going to have to employ them in the workshop as extra 'workshope eleves' !!!!

 Its so great when we see photos of our items & products in use. These photos were taken by a lovely customer of ours called Andy and he has let us share them with his kind consent. In his photos you will see him using one of the German Silver tinderboxes, one of our new Ferro rod Fire Lighting Kits with a hand dyed leather Tinder Pouch with a matching 5'300 yr old Bog Oak Ferro Rod handle & Tinder. He also has one of our mini leather pocket sized tinder pouches with an Oval Hudson Bay traditional Fire Steel. You can also see him using one of the mini tins to make his own Char Cloth. Our items are designed to be used and thats why we love seeing photos of our actual items in use.

Thought we'd share some brilliant pics that Phil Hawkins from Bushlife Essentials UK Tree Surgery (Wiltshire area) sent to us. Hate to think how old these hand stitched leather Sheaths are that Mark made Phil way back and its good to see our Canvas Bags have also stood the test of time over the years. Phil is a professional Tree Surgeon and to quote him 'working consistently in arduous conditions where tough reliable kit is essential'.  The Sheath is for the  Laplander Saw and the Knife Sheath was made to Phil's own requirements due to his job as a tree surgeon. I think we may have to bring back the Canvas Bags to the website.

  These photos were sent in by Scott McAllister who's had quite a few items from us over the years.

This is his copper Hudson Bay Tinderbox and one of our hand stitched, hand dyed Pioneering Pouches. Scott had the Copper Hudson Bay Tin engraved with a personal message and has patina'd down to a lovely effect.The scriptt was rather a  lovely touch we thought. Scott also run's his own company and makes some rather lovely hand crafted items that he adds to make the kits his own. Scott's work can be found on Etsy @ ScottsNiceStuff

geoff from fenland bushcarftGeoff Preen from Fenland Bushcrafter is an instructor and needs his gear to work!! He has one of our Green Outdoor wax jackets that was slightly modified to meet his needs.  

He's also wearing one of our mini pocket pouches on his belt. His Gransfor Bruks axes also has one of our hand stitched Axe head covers.

Our items are designed to be used and made to last, so its so great to see professional people like Geoff using our products out in the field.

To quote Geoff he needs 'kit he can trust'!

This is one of our all time best sellers : The Bushcraft Field Sharpening Kit' here are just a few photos and a few customer comments we have had about this particular item. Sean from 'Black Wolf Survival & Bushcraft' has had his kit for quite a few years, to quote Sean, 'it’s the best sharpening system by far. Used & Abused and still going strong'.

Mr J Poole' 'Just wanted to say I purchased your sharpening kit at the Bushcraft Show and its one of the best investments I've ever made. It has even sharpened my 15 year old carving knife. I thoroughly enjoyed your demonstrations aswell'

From Mr A Hughes: 'It was time to sharpen an old dull blade. And this is the real reason to write you. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I've never been able to get a real good edge on any knife, and some I've not even been able to get any edge to speak of. But, using your kit, and following the method described by you in the video, I was able to get a very sharp edge - cutting paper rather than tearing it - on a £1.00 knife. That's right a one pound knife is as sharp as any other knife I own now'.

A customer of ours called 'Sun Set' just sent us a pic of his knives he had just sharpened using the 1000grit diamond stone and pocket strop  for what he called 'a quick touch up for my knives'!!!
