Naimakka Skydivers Bracelet with GB mini belt Hatchet.
Skydivers Bracelet from Naimakka.
The Good Folks over at Naimakka sent me some paracord bracelets a few weeks ago.
Seen here is the Skydivers edition. Wonderfully hand tied and finished with a brass quick release clasp. This version fits in well with my everyday style. A gentlemans paracord bracelet!
These have all been a dream to wear and if all else fails you have a good length of paracord with you at all times.
They can be found here at -
Out in the woods today!
Love the Ghillie Kettle, you can’t beat a quick rest by a small fire with a hot drink.
Rope Rescue training with Search & Rescue.

Another pimped Opinel .
This one is for Andrew from Valleydeepmountainhigh . When we discussed the pimp on the phone He asked to keep the locking ring on and for it to have a tanto type tip .
As this was a carbon steel No.6 Opinel I decided against a stone wash finish which may aid rusting and chose a deep dark etch in ferric chloride instead.The whole knife was dipped including the locking ferule as there was no need to take the knife apart .
The original curved tip was flattened into a tanto’ish angle which was then resharpened at 25 degree’s to make a slightly thicker edge to the tip relative to the the thinner straight cutting edge and I thought it gave it a shark like appearance .
The original varnish to the beach wood handle was removed and then the sides flattened on a belt sander . As I was still thinking on a shark theme I then sculpted the sides with a small Dremel sanding drum to represent gills
The wood was then buffed on a medium grit abrasive wheel to round off any sharp corners but to also give some sharkskin like texture before dying the wood with black ash wood dye . The dye was then rubbed back using wire wool for an aged effect .
I hope he likes it .

A shot of me out in the woods rocking the Kifaru G2 Express.
I recently sold this pack, however Kifaru make some excellent gear. There packs are very well made.
Strip light from email@example.com
Made from a single piece of orange US coastguard tape and x3 CyFlect discs. Behind are x3 small mirror dots.
Seen mounted to my Kifaru Claymore pouch.
Out of all the glow tapes I have tested, the CyFlect has been a great combination of reflective and glow.
Inside the Kifaru 4 man tipi……….
So I spent the weekend with a local group of cadets. I was asked to help out with teaching them medical care, and a lesson on survival skills.
I grabbed this image of the inside of my kifaru 4 man to show you just how big the living space is.
I have had this tent for almost two years and used it in all weathers!
Truly fantastic piece of gear!
