Killrathi Northman Knife

I got this beauty just recently, roughly 9 inches long with a blade of L2 steel and a stabilised birch's a bigger knife in the hand than it actually looks in the picture but is comfortable to use and has an edge well though is harder to sharpen than other more simple carbon steels. It came in a nice leather sheath and it hangs well on the belt. This is another nice knife to add to the collection from a very decent maker.

Gnarly Stump

It's rare to see very large Holly trees but when they do get big their trunks take on a life of their own and they configure into wild and wonderful shapes, just like this beauty..

Wildwoods Open Day

Buzzard is now closely affiliated with the biggest and best known bushcraft and Wilderness living academy in the country, Wildwoods.
Last weekend we had an open day to let people see just how much talent and skill is nurtured between the people involved. Literally hundreds of people turned up and each and every one had a brilliant day if the comments are anything to go by!
We put on a series of stalls, participatory events and educational workshops so people could see for themselves just what is entailed within the realm of bushcraft..
from primitive shelters..

To luxurious ones

From birds of prey

(especially our signature bird, the Buzzard, seen here)

To a hog roast

We also laid on basket and willow weaving, foraging, medicinal herbs, forging and blade making, a craft village and backwoods cooking..there was just so much to see that everybody wanted to come back for more or stay longer!

So a big thankyou to all who came along and especially to all the team who helped out specifically Ciaran who built the spit for the hog roast, Gareth and Torie, also Darren, Gavin, Brendan, Deccy, Jane, Little Aaron, Ryan, Amy, Dillon, Conrad and Ciaran and especially Tammy who went above and beyond..

Thankyou so much, your buns were gorgeous and a real big hit with everyone..
