Cegga is not a US maker he is from Sweden. His name is Michael Crgonja I believe.

He is all over the forums and it appears his prices are overly fair.

Great review, man! I can't wait until I get my hands on one of his axes. That one you have there is very unique... I love it. What style is it considered?

Hi folks,

Thanks for your comments, i'll try to answer your questions. The axe's are as Skog says(thank you), they are made to order, by Michael in Sweden, and despite this, they are a reasonable price. The design is what Michael calls his viking model, i saw a photo of one he made for some one else, liked it, and waited until he had the time for mine.

The pack, was made last year by a company called rugged river(i posted photo's on here, but don't know how to retreive them)who have now sadly ceased trading.

The billy can, as all my billy's, is made from a coffee/cookie/sugar container, from a charity shop, and its in stainlees steel. Its 10cm(4 inch)wide, and fits nicely inside a 11cm home made billy.

The knives, the big one is a custom made, by Adam Crawford(aka chevin,on BB),made for me in 2008, it has a 6 inch long, but wide blade. the smaller knife, is approx 25yrs old, was refurbished a couple years ago, and was made by the Sheffield firm, the Middleton brothers, and was a bushcraft knife, before the term was invented.

Wow how did I miss this! What a beaut!
I like the style and polished cheeks but I'm afraid if I bought one from him I'd have to have some of the forge scale left on. I'm old fashioned like that:o
