Remember when I went hiking and camping for two days and I woke up to this on the first morning?

➳ We’ve been blessed with some sunshine today, so we packed our things and decided to have a day out in the wild. We brought some mulled wine to heat over the fire 🔥


Ulu Dawn .

 A Neo-tribal style Ulu knife I made up for a very good customer in the US who had grown up in Alaska .

 The blade is recycled high carbon saw blade steel with forge finish and has a Nessmuk style tip one end and a more pointed drop point at the other .

The handle is Red deer stag antler from the herd I used to look after , the cut ends have been sealed with copper dust / epoxy mix .

The pins are square head copper boat nails , scavenged from an old wreck on the Jurassic coast and the tang has been wrapped in 3 strand braided sinew .

 Custom knives , sheaths and gear from rtknives@hotmail.com


The most simple food becomes a luxury when you’ve walked far. Hot beans, roasted bread and a steaming cup of tea. Soaked, then frozen gloves and forgotten matchsticks are some things I advice against though. 


Newly finished hatchet! The runes say “watch and wait” I will be crafting a sheath for it soon! If you are interested in this item visit my etsy shop!
