Day out

Here is a couple of pictures from a trip out today..

Only a few pictures for today but I hope you enjoy. The only kit with me today was the tarp with cordage and pegs, hammock and cook kit with windshield and firesteel.

Thank you for reading, Ben.

Maxpedition cook kit

Here is what I carry in my Maxpedition 10x4 pouch as my cook kit:

In the main pouch I carry the pathfinder bottle and cup set accompanied by the pathfinder stove and a cup with cosy on top for an insulated mug.

In the front pouch I carry a titanium spork, brew, meths and my homemade meths burner from a old vaseline tin.

I am very impressed with this kit and would recommend to anyone.

Thanks, Ben.

Recently I have slimmed down my tool kit and I am now at a stage I am very happy with. I have a tool that will do every job I need but I also enjoy using all of these tools which is important to me.

Over the years I have purchased many knives, saw, tomohawks, spoon knives and axes and the majority of them have been used and good tools but never made it into my kit full time.

These are all the tools I currently own now:

Mark Hill Full Tang Knife. Skandi ground.

Full tang knife with skandi grind made by Grumit.

Rob Evans Neck Knife. Skandi Ground blade.

Bahco Laplander Saw

Leatherman Charge

British Army Clasp Knife
Joker No74 UK Legal Knife
Alox Swiss Army Knife Farmer
Spyderco Bug
