    While on the internet hunt for some 'McGyverish' hunting, hiking and camping gear this morning came upon this store. Below is a link to their brands pages... If you click on the brands tab you see some pretty handy stuff and 'sharps' to consider.

    I wonder if our Ol' mate 22F from Packs and Beyond has seen this one...

      Well, reading through this thread you will note that some of us like our 'sharps'. You will also note that they come in an array of different shapes, sizes, ages and have many different uses...

      Recently I came across a nice presentation box in my 'Bower birding' travels, to be spruced up. This is to house something very old, rare and rather special that I've been haggling over for a little while. Yes, they now belong to me... They are 'sharps' and are very 'old friends'.

      They are a collection of 11 Paleo Native North American Indian knapped spearheads and arrowheads, from a deceased Archeologists private collection... These are around 12 thousand years old.

      These pictures do not do them justice and will post up a complete picture when I have the presentation finished.

                    Wow is the word and all the features.
                    Sort of too good to not use and will remember SA and what a great bunch of blokes makes it what it is when I use it.
                    I won't skin my next deer with it as it's too nice to mess up and have to scrub clean.
                    Will use the wood-handled folder and see how they cope with the blood and crap.

                    Can't wait to see and feel it now.

                    Much appreciated Herne.

                      • Amazing collection there Herne. Just goes to show we were always hunters and gatherers....no wonder we still love to hunt...its in the human dna. Cheers.

                      • A more modern way is to make arrow heads from bottle glass, quite an achievement I would say.
                        Miss 15 has two flint arrow heads - modern made, but I can attest to just how sharp they are.

                        Nice box of stones Herne.
                        The TRUTH is out there,
                        the Aliens think its a great joke on us.
                        We still believe in Santa, but eat the Easter Bunny

                        And the Easter Bunny tastes SO GOOD !!
                        That's why he is made of Chocolate.

                        • ‘Hornet’, I’m in the process of cleaning up the whole archeologists collection the vendor here in Australia has... They are extremely rare and unique to a particular region. (To put it simply. The vendor knows what he has from the records kept with the estate only.)

                          If I get the lot and for what i’m negotiating, once presented, displayed appropriately and the right interested party found. I would have hit a good earner... But for now, I’m the interested party.

                          • Got the Puma today Herne and it is a beauty, so light, yet so versatile and the ideal size for general carry use.
                            Too good to not use for sure and it may well harvest an animal as it is the lightest knife to carry in a pocket and never be caught without a knife.

                            Thanks, heaps.
