Choosing the right knife can be confusing but when you know the theory behind ‘bladesmithing’ then it becomes a much easier task. This is the first part of an in depth guide on choosing a knife and I’ve broken it down to ‘Grind,’ ‘Handle & Length’ and ‘Steel & Everything Else’

Llangollen is the gate way to Snowdonia and its the reason I’ve been coming here for five years. Iv’e now moved here for good and I want everyone to know about the amazing attractions we have to offer!!
Having spent lots of my childhood outdoors, I started walking the hills, camping, mountain biking, climbing and even kayaking as a teenager. Through the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme and my Sixth Form College I learned skills and began travelling further afield to climb and walk in Snowdonia the Peak District, the Lake District, and ski in Scotland and Norway.
Llangollen is a town of 3000 or so residents in North East Wales, just an hour or so from Liverpool, Manchester and the outskirts of Birmingham. If you have ever driven into North Wales on the A5 you will recognise the view as the mountains rear up and close in around you and Castle Dinas Bran rises up on it’s own hill top to your right. The valley has been carved by the River Dee, a magnet for white water kayakers, canoeists and rafters from all over the world.
We have picked a few of our favourite events coming up in 2019, if we have missed yours please add it in the comments below. If you get them to us soon then we can add them in to this article. If our dates are wrong or missing please add them in the comments.
Thanks to Andy Lees of Go Kayaking Northwest there is a full selection of current Pyranha Demo Kayaks at River Active in Llangollen. As I paddle the site two or three times a week my interest was peaked when asked which boats I would be trying. In return for the loan of the boat I was asked to write a Pyranha 12R Review.
The 12R wasn’t on my list until I turned up on a bright and cold Sunday in February in the mood to paddle a loop, down the River Dee to town, then up the canal and drop back into the river for the return to Mile End mill. I paddle a Jackson Mixmaster mostly, so not ideal for the paddle up the canal, and there above the door was a brand new, unscratched Pyranha 12r just waiting for me to demo.
