Knives can be dangerous weapons. They can cause serious injury and knife crime is rising, but knives are also the most commonly used tools we humans have. Show me a chef that doesn’t have a selection or a farmer, woodworker, sailor, fisherman, rock climber, canoeist, scout or bushcrafter who doesn’t own at least one knife specific to his or her craft.
There are few sweeter sights for me than a sunny campsite being populated with a couple of dozen Tentipi over the course of an afternoon. By the time the darkness was upon us, most of the forty or so guests had arrived at the fifth UK Tentipi Camp, their tipis pimped and perfect, the fires aglow with coffee pots spluttering away and the odd glasses of grape and grain going down nicely.
