Kizer Ki4468 Intrepid - Vapentidningen No.1 - 2017

A new year also means a new lineup of interesting magazines from the Swedish mag Vapentidningen. In this first issue of the year 2017 you're offered articles like; Blaser R 8 Professional X (Erland Gunnarsson), BUL SAS II (Henrik Kalling), Remington V3 Field Sport (Tobias Hassel) and a big test of muzzle brakes (Johan Ljungné). As usual I also contribute inside the mag. This time you can read my article about the folder Kizer Ki4468 Intrepid.




This Asian manufactured high-tech folder is a collaboration with the American custom knife maker Ray Laconico. Intrepid is a nice knife that I would say belongs in the newer category of knifes using exclusive materials and refined design, offering a futuristic and extravagant flipper. Most of these knives remains collectibles but I enjoy the Intrepid as a field dressing blade when taking care of the game out in the bush.





The magazine is on it's way out in stores as we write/read. I hope you like the article and please write me a few lines if you have any questions or if you have any nice stories about this knife model.

Inside the next issue of Vapentidningen you'll find my article on the Morakniv Garberg.

Merry Christmas & Happy New 2017

The Christmas tree is all dressed, the fireplace is warming the saloon and I'm enjoying the calm as my dear family now is fast asleep. This is a nice contrast to the last couple of days of inspiring but intense activities. This weekend we moved from the hectic big city pulse of Stockholm to the calm woods of Bergslagen. Me and my beloved wife Therese are now changing course in life to focus even more on Jonas Vildmark and the outdoors. As a natural step in our business development we have been looking for a suitable homestead for some time now. And now we have gotten the opportunity to live in the beautiful villa Lienshyttans Herrgård in Riddarhyttan Sweden. This shift is a wonderful final to a fantastic year for us and Jonas Vildmark. 2016 offered inspiring events like; Vildmarksmässan 2016Ystad Täljfestival 2016Naked and AfraidBushcraftfestivalen 2016, nice courses, a lot of hunting, buying forest in Hälsingland and last but not least; getting to buy the inspiring place Lienshyttans Herrgård.




With these words from a quiet and frosty Riddarhyttan I want to wish you and your dearest a peaceful Christmas and a Happy New Year!

The Jonas Vildmark plans for 2017 will for instance offer you news like; Hunting SchoolBushcraft weekends, lectures at the Vildmarksmässan, exciting homesteading and the Bushcraftfestivalen 2017.

Hope to see you soon. Take care of each other during the upcoming holidays and let your heart be generous to those in need.

Casström Woodsman - Vapentidningen No.8 - 2016

Any day now a new issue of the magazine Vapentidningen will pop up in a store near you. This time I write about one of the latest knife models from Casström; the Woodsman. It's an interesting project in cooperation with the English knife maker Roger Harrington of Bison Bushcraft. This is a handy and compact knife with an extremely sturdy full tang blade of a thickness of 4,3 mm.





As always I'd also would like to highlight some of the other interesting articles inside the magazine. This time I got extra fund of Johan Ljungné's article on how to zero a rifle and Henrik Kalling's article about long range shooting with caliber 9x19 and his test of the caplock pistol Pedersoli Kentucky in caliber .45.




I hope you'll get a pleasant moment reading by the wood stove while the November snow slowly falls outside the cabin window.
