    Perkin knives

    They have facility for Paypal and they are pretty good at settling any dispute, eg not what it says on the packet etc, think I will take the plunge as the fixed blades seem to have good reviews but apparently the pocket knives suffer from poor mechanics. Plunge taken and will do a review on the knife.

    What do you use it for? I may take a chance on a Perkin knife just for its looks, you can never be sure where any knife metal comes from, was thinking about getting a outdoor edge swingblade but apparently that's Chinese stainless ( if you believe the tinternet) and doesn't keep a good edge. I do have the outdoor edge razor pro which has disposable blades, haven't changed the blade yet as sharpens up real well, you just have to make sure you remove the blade and clean it well each time you grallock otherwise the disposable gets stuck with the blood. Does a fallow nicely and as a folder it goes on your belt tidy, just like a bigger fix blade for bleeding and doing pigs.

    Trouble is now the children have left home and the wife would probably allow me to buy and Emberleaf I'm to darn forgetful to warrant owning one.

    You may not have noticed Walshie but there's a few about that don't speak the Queens English, met a girl in Bangkok once, she could only speak one broken sentence of English but her service was excellent.

    Your not a perkin agent are you One reason for being so cheap will be labour rates in Pakistan just wondering whether the rest of the knife will be value for the money. I have an ornately carved chess set, absolutely stunning, all hand carved in Ubud, Bali, the most beautiful detail, inlaid with white and dark wood, must have taken ages to carve but cost me £30. The only downside ( only from a western perspective) was tin hinges made from bean cans but I don't play chess with the hinges. Perkin do accept Paypal so there is some come back, should I take a punt and do a review ?

    Nothing yet but one knife that looks nice is a D2 knife with walnut handle and scout style sheath, its a flat grind which I prefer, if its D2 steel its a lot of knife for £60.00

    Perkin knives

    Hi all, while looking for a new knife with some Christmas cash I stumbled on these guys, nice website with some lovely looking knives for not much money for example a handmade knife out of D2 steel with a buffalo horn handle for £60. At first instance you could believe these knives are Made in UK (nice to see that still has some meaning ), but they do state somewhere on the website the knives are not made in the UK, not obvious but there. Now I'm a man of suspicious nature and seeing a true Made in UK knife of reasonable design could cost you into the high hundreds did a bit of research on these guys, a couple of brothers with Pakistani nationality operating from the London area so its not hard to guess the set up. My house is adorned with pictures and carvings from around the world and don't believe something coming from an country of cheaper labour necessarily means absolutely trash quality, many lavish homes around the UK are skirted by acres of imported Indian sandstone, cheaper than concrete yet very hard wearing and well cut. Obviously you get what you pay for in regard to the knives but they do look very good and there seem to be quite a few happy customers around, anyone on here have any personal experience with them.
  8. As titled need a spare mag for my CZ .22 rimfire, ideally a 10 shot but 5 shot would do
  9. Disagree, if your a member of BASC give them a ring and they will give you emails for the complaints procedure, many don't complain because they are worried the police may hinder the process further. If not a member of BASC look it up on your police areas website. They are providing a service and the more complaints they get maybe they will do something about it. This worked for me anyhow
  10. As Title, have 308 but worth a try to get calibre spacific
  11. Just starting reloading for 6.5x55, anyone have anything related

    Dsc1 requirement becoming more common.

    Bit like the driving test then, but at the moment the DSC's aren't law, well at the moment anyway

    Browning 525 recoil pad

    Many thanks, yes it has the hard plastic curved butt plate so it'll be a grind to fit job then.

    Browning 525 recoil pad

    I have just received a recoil pad that is meant to fit a browning 525 stock without any alterations, it does not fit and is a bit short, maybe for a later 525. I bought my browning 525 about 12 years ago, any ideas on any pads that will fit this model or will it be a gunsmith job ? Ps the company that supplied the pad will take it back no problem.

    All live quarry should be respected in the same way, why single out deer? Well we tend to eat rather more deer than foxes and the DSC1 covers a fair bit on food hygiene, with a hunter number you can sell the venison back into the food chain so maybe this is the main reason but you could say why don't we need a food hygiene license for rabbits, pigeons and pheasants or maybe legally you do ?
