Talisker Atlantic Challenge boat

Today I visited the rowing boat that a 4 man team from Portrush Northern Ireland spent over 31 days in while rowing 3000 miles for The Talisker Atlantic Challenge.   The quarters are incredibly cramped and designed around the idea of shifts. Still the phrase Tough motherfuckers comes to mind. I can only imagine the physical and mental hardships the team endured. I'm sure there were many times that individuals wanted to quit but the team held strong and this amazing feat was accomplished in a time equal to the world record.

Makes you proud to be from this small country.

Well done lads.

Enzo Trapper Review After 5 Years Use

Hello All,

Its been a while since I bought my Enzo Trapper in 01 Steel, green Micarta handle, with leather sheath. About 5 years in fact. I seem to remember it cost around £60.00 as a self assembly kit.It has been used for huge amount of bushcraft activities all the way from simple spoon carving to butchering Deer carcass.

I decided to review the knife after this time due to the number of questions I get from fellow bushcrafters about the knife.

Durability, edge retention and ergonomics are all exceptional. The bevel on this knife is scandi grind which I find excellent for wood working tasks, feather stick making and general carving.

The spine of the knife is well angled and gives a fantastic shower of sparks.

I have included a few pictures which in the most part accidently show the knife. The patina shown is all natural through use and not forced.

For the price I find this to be an exceptional bushcraft tool which would serve anyone well.
