Re: Swiss Army Knives

Older Soldier models have a hollow/tubular rivet at one end. I think tubular rivets should be used at both ends, enabling the knife to be easily lashed to another object. Do you think that those hollow ones may have been a weak point in the design making it necessary to change? I think they're plen...

Re: worth buying!Outdoor Survival Skills/Larry Dean Olsen

I have a copy of Bushcraft now and I recommend it. In contrast to many survival books, Mors addresses the subject with the attention and detail of one who actually practises the craft. The book can be purchased from Karamat Wilderness Ways which appears to be Mors' own site. Amazon has a ("clic...

Re: Swiss Army Knives

The Victorinox Soldier is distinct from the more popular red-handled knives. It has solid aluminum handle scales, thicker blade(s), and a superior reamer. Victorinox makes variations of the Soldier which all share the "Alox" aluminum scales. Presently, I'm using a Pioneer Harvester . The A...

Any comments on the bushcraft books of Mors Kochanski?

I've not read any yet myself but I'd like to.

Re: Do you simmer food on a hike

For me, it depends on what I'm cooking. Some things (like taro, breadfruit, &c.) need to cook for a long time. I should add that I generally aim to find food as I go (which may or may not need simmering). Also, the food I carry for long distances does not need simmering or even boiling (i.e., it...

Re: The Albert Skye Alcohol Stove

Any way to put slots in the top of the corrogated metal tubing in the center to let more heat get to the center of the pot? Yes, I agree...that will work....more heat will be transferred via the inside of the tube support. I was under the impression that the inner cylinder (be it either the stove w...

Re: The Albert Skye Alcohol Stove

In the thread about the Super Stove it tells how to reduce the distance from stove to pot in order to use white gas, kerosene, lamp oil and ?(i forget) Thanks, I see that now (long thread). Drilling the inner portion of the burner would allow fuel to leak out. Sorry for the confusion, I should have...

Re: The Albert Skye Alcohol Stove

Thanks again Dan! :D Since I still have no experience with these wick stoves, I don't know if the distance between pot and stove makes a difference when burning different fuels but I imagine it would, and that's the other reason for the design (beyond temperature control). Is my speculation wrong on...
