    Bradley Ultimate Survival Knives / BUSK

    Hi bushcraft people!

    The title and the "name" of the knife are just for fun - the knife is very simple forged camping knife - nothing ultimate, nothing survival, nothing special - but is my creation so I love it ;)

    I am not a skilled bushcrafter - just a regular hiker and backpacker, hunting and camping fan... so I need a good, strong and simple 7/8 inch blade camp knife:

    Specs in the videos...

    Of course like all my videos, and this is not a serious or educational topics. The end of September put an end to the hiking and camping season and preparing for the opening of the big game hunting, so I decided to use my BUSK for the last time this year. Pamper myself with a little bacon appetizer and dark bock beer...

    ... as usual excuse my poor English...
