Re: The STAFF. Multipurpose, Self-defence, Survival Tool (Scottish History and Myth)--Video

I've heard about the UK laws. Many people here want us to be like that, too. Can you bring a handaxe if you are out in the field?

The STAFF. Multipurpose, Self-defence, Survival Tool (Scottish History and Myth)--Video

Re: Dwarven Bocksten Inspired cloak

I'd known it was an older fabric from the Alpine regions known for weather resistance, but I didn't know the formulation had changed. Harper, do you know of anyone making the original stuff? No personal experience, bu...

Re: Dwarven Bocksten Inspired cloak

Nice work! The shorter cape length certainly works better in the wilderness for actually wearing. Wind is always a concern of mine with wool. Boiled wool does work better against the wind. I have a coat made of Loden wool with wax canvas over the shoulders. It is warmer than it looks and works well ...
