  1. And a bit of ember malipulation....

    Fire-Ferro Rod English Yew-Beaver Bushcraf 2Been another busy week at Beaver Bushcraft. Trying to get all our new products up on the website has been a bit slower the expected due to the weather conditions. One day raining, then a little bit of snow then the sun comes out which means a quick dash outside to do the product shots.

    We have had some lovely hand made Ferrocium Fire Steels arrive in from a talented maker based in the UK. The thing we like about these particular Fire Steels is that the designs are so varied  that there is a style to suit everyone's tastes, from traditional wooden handled ones to something a bit more funky. Make great birthday gifts too, something that’s a little different.

    leather- fire-showing ember malipitation with antler toggle-beaver bushcrafWe have also started to add to our range of 'oiled' leather  pouches. Our newest one has a handmade antler 'dibber' attached for 'ember manipulation'!!!! A handy little tool for teasing and playing with your ember without burning yourself. This style of Pouch is based on a traditional pattern and has two separate compartments, one side to keep your flint and steel in and the other side for Tinders. Actually you don't have to use it for that, one friend of ours uses his for his medicines!

    We still have more products to come, such as  some leather making  tools, plus Mark is designing some new 'hard' leather pouches and a new Belt design to come. Then we can start prepping for the Bushcraft Show…looking forward to the summer.

  2. Gone Fishing…….

    Hobo Reels-handmade wood crafted hobo reels-beaver bushcraftNew stock has been arriving this week, this is what we look forward to the most as we love looking for new ideas and products especially if they are well crafted and made by hand. We fell in love with these Hobo Fishing Reels and just had to have them on the website. All hand crafted in Pine and have been finished with a coat of Jacobean wax which not only brings the grain out, protects the wood etc but makes each one look different to each other. They come complete with a full fishing kit,we were most fascinated by the plastic maggots, plus there is room inside to add some of your own little bits or should we say little 'baites' lol.

    bb tb 2For any one waiting for the Hudson Bays Tinderboxes and the Bethel Forge Fire Steels to come back into stock, they are all on order and we are just waiting for them to clear UK Customs. It can be so frustrating for us as we love getting the stock just as much as our customers do. We are currently working on adding some more Ferro rods to our range plus we have some new leather goodies coming out soon. It can take  a while to get the leather products right especially as we are busy with customer orders.  

    Well it's Valentine's Day on Sunday so remember its better to give someone a piece of your heart then it is to give them a piece of your mind !!  Peace and love, BB
