    Binoculars

    Macleods are always worth a look at; http://www.rmacleod.co.uk/CUSTOMER%2...OCK%20LIST.pdf

    I think these are the best bargains out there; http://www.comparestoreprices.co.uk/...binoculars.asp

    I think the EKA swingblade is outstanding and I now use one all the time; http://www.moonrakerknives.co.uk/ekanordicf.htm

    Mora 2010 are also outstanding, good steel and a dishwasher proof sheath; http://www.knifebargains.co.uk/acata...ade_Knife.html

    For your price range I can thoroughly recommend Minox HG Bino's

    I researched a good deal for Bin's and asked a few questions on here and following various recommendations I finally bought a new pair at the Scone Game Fair for 380

    For that price, they are very hard to beat as Im sure others who own them will agree.

    As for knives, Mora's are hard to beat.

    Thanks for the info guys, can you remember the name of the dealer at the game fair rig boot. I have just done a quick search on the binoculars and it's looks like you had he'll of a deal. What spec was yours as there are a few different magnification options. As for the knife I think the eka swing blade looks good, just seen some videos on YouTube on this knife and it looks very good.

    Thanks again lads

    i have both the mora knives in orange and now a swingblade too thanks to my better half
    both are very good blades, the swingblade being superior of course with the twin purpose cutting blades

    and minox binoculars you wont be disapointed they're great value literally the only diference between the minox and say the likes of zeiss
    is ten minutes, yep you heard me literally the last ten minutes before dark, i've tried the minox bl 8x42 against the zeiss binoculars
    and between a 1000 is ten minutes,

    Minox are brilliant!!

    Aye, that's the beauty of haggling face to face.

    The retailer was Ffordes of Beauly, really good company to deal with.

    When I got home from the fair and opened the Sealed box there was a pair of 10x40's in it, these things happen, even the sealed outer packaging was marked up as 8.5x43 but anyway, quick call and they replaced them next day, reimbursed my return postage etc so all in all great service

    Cheers
