>>712813 We put it in a aluminum camp pan and it was to small so the pizza sat on the edge of it and left air underneath and then put the lid on and put coals on the lid and this baked it like in an oven
I just received this gb small forest axe, and the grind is fairly noticably not straight. This pic is from the top. The bottom is straight though so this means the cutting edge isnt parallel with the handle. Should i send it back? It seems like to grind it straight would mean getting rid of a lot of metal.
I actually looked through a bunch of Gransfors wildlife hatchets at a brick and mortar store and they were all uneven to one extent or another. I guess this shouldn't have surprised me, given the handmade nature of the item.
If you send it back, I am almost sure you will receive one that has another flaw, possibly worse. You just have to deal with it. If the grind is all that bothers you, then you should thank your lucky and you should just grind it yourself until it suits you. They are fine tools though and it shouldn't affect usability. I would try to not let it other you.
I'm thinking about carrying a kukri instead of a small axe for light wood cutting on my next trip.
The main reason is that they weight less than a kg and I don't need to split big chunk of wood, just small stuff to keep a campfire going.
I've been looking at the kukrihouse discont deals, and they seem to be pretty cheap. Is there a model you would recomend? am I wrong thinking one of the heavier, thicker blades would be better for the job?
>>714363 OP said wanting to learn. Beginners shouldn't go out alone. Lots of little things can happen that wouldn't be an issue for most of us, but someone who's never dealt with it before could have a lot of difficulty. Take bear encounters for instance. You or I would probably just hang back and let it do its thing unless it engaged, but OP would probably panic and end up getting mauled.
>>714371 Very true. I completely forgot that he was a beginner as I was writing. Got a bit carried away.
OP I would honestly do the stuff one at a time. Give a nice morning/afternoon hike a go. Find someone on the trails and just strike up a conversation, make a new buddy. Ask them if they'd mind showing you the ropes, or just follow their lead.
I am in the same boat as you at times. I love the outdoors, but the only one of my friends that also does is one of those "I could only really interact with them... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
#17- "Longest Title Ever: Not Enough Time To Fish Because Mommy Had A Hip Replacement And It's Like Taking Care Of A Newborn" Edition
I'm gonna try and get out tomorrow morning. Just afraid to go very far away in case something happens. Suprisingly she seems to be in less pain with this hip surgery than she was when she originally broke her femur and they put a bunch of screws in it.
I'm looking for a pair of good boots to use for camping, hiking, working, etc. I'm looking for something in black. However, I'm on a pretty restrictive budget at ~$60. Really just the name of a reliable, affordable brand would help a lot. Interested in pic related just for the 'Nam feel but all suggestions are welcome. Thanks folks.
