Thanks Simon for the step by step guide on putting a new handle on the Opinel. Had a go with a last piece of red deer antler left over from the sticks. Not as impressive as yours and next effort will be better. Hardest part is lining the blade up to the curve of the antler and I can see why you do it by eye. I could probably have used a larger blade size as well but it works.
Hi guys, This is the only scenario where i would carry knives: - 2 opinels (lock knives) and 1 Elk ridge 12.5” Bowie (fixed blade) will be taken to the field from my owned property in the boot of my car in my field bag. - When i arrive at the land (where i have permission from the land owner to shoot) i attach 1 opinel in a pouch to my belt and the bowie in a sheath to my belt. - I mainly hunt pigeon, rabbit, pheasant and duck (both in season of course and not on a Sunday). - When im done for the day i put the knives back in my bag in the boot of the car and i drive home. IS THIS LEGAL?? IS MY REASON OF HUNTING A GOOD ENOUGH REASON TO CARRY THESE KNIVES?
