Is how I'm feeling at the moment!
You see, I no longer shoot! Anything, no rifles, shotguns, bows of any kind, I'm sure you get the idea! Having said all that, I used to be heavily involved in culling fallow herds on private land. This was a service that we, the family business, used to offer land owners when the time came for a little herd thinning. We would remove the required number from the herd, as specified by the landowner, prepare the carcasses, hang them, and then return them to the estate kitchen for use.
I was involved in this for a number of years until the various landowners died off and the herds were broken up.
Now, suffering from the dual curse of 'tempus fugit' and arthritis, I'm pretty much useless! I can still, however, swing a hammer, which is why I'm here. I make knives!
I was advised to take a look on here by various guys over on British Blades and Bushcraft UK, and it seems that they were right. It looks like a lively community.
OK, what else? Well, I'm based in Devon, I'm 63, and have knives of mine working all over the country, as well as a few in other countries!
That's pretty much it, so, Hi. all!
