Tools Of The Trade UPDATE.
I have updated my equipment of late, I removed the pewter bolster from my hunting knife & fitted a new handle. This one as you can see is antler. Also shown is my fairly new clasp knife.

Customised Brass Trade Kettle.
I finally got round to cutting my Track Of The Wolf brass trade kettle down to a correct documented size! I also made & fitted the correct type of bail lugs for this type of kettle. It is much lighter now, & of course it will take up less room in my knapsack.
I am pleased with the way it turned out, but I know I could have done a better job if I had the right tools for the job.
