Casström Lars Fält Knife - Vapentidningen No.2 - 2019

On it's way out in stores right now; the latest issue of Vapentidningen. Inside this issue, No.2 - 2019, Jonas contributes with an article on the Casström Lars Fält Knife. This knife is a collaboration between the Swedish company Casström and the Swedish Survival Legend Mr. Lars Fält.

So pop your popcorn, boil your coffee and stuff your pipe; it's time for some nice reading about how it all started at the Bushcraftfestivalen 2016 in Gottröra. It was at that event that the idea about creating the knife was born. And for that we are truly grateful.

Other interesting articles inside the same mag is for instance; BUL SAS II UR (Henrik Kalling), Bernelli 828U Sport (Tobias Hassel) and Breda B12i (Henrik Kalling)... Much pleasure.

Bushcraft - The Art of Survival in Nature is Spreading - Land December 2018

The Swedish magazine Land has for me always been a symbol of reality and homesteading. The mag has been seen laying on kitchen tables in Swedish homesteads through the years.
So when Land contacted us wanting to do an interview on Bushcraft we of-course proudly said Yes.

The nice ans skill-fulled Journalist ms Lotta Silferbrand visited us on our homestead in Riddarhyttan Sweden for some coffee and interesting conversations about what Bushcraft is and how important wilderness skills is to mankind and the environment. After that we headed out in the refreshing outdoors of Bergslagen Sweden. Besides enjoying the Autumn air we focused on fire skills from different eras. I demonstrated the bow drill technique and how to think when building, maintaining and safely putting out a fire in the outdoors.

We wish to thank Lotta and Land for good words, nice photos and well publishing. We hope that the article can inspire more of us to go outdoors and enjoy the knowledge of Nature.

Wetterling's Axe Night 2018

The Christmas holiday spirit is here as well as the snow. Feels great that Winter finally is here!
We want to let you know about an inspiring event coming up Wednesday next week. It's time for Wetterlings Yxnatta (Axe Night) at the forge in Storvik Sweden. Jonas Vildmark is happy to be invited as one of the contributors at this event scheduled for December 19th 18.00-22.00. I see our participation as a part of our pleasant little project The Swedish Axe that started for some years ago.

We hope you'll stop by to check out the blacksmiths at work, taste some glögg and have a Bushcraft chat with me. Last time I participated in an event at the forge in Storvik was at Yxans Dag 2015 (Axe Day 2015) and it feels great to be there next week.

I'm planning to keep a warming fire going so we can sit down and talk wilderness skills while I'm doing some field carving prior to upcoming hide preparations. Of-course you also have the opportunity to buy some Christmas gifts; how about a gift card on one of our courses or a Doer?

Take care in the snow and I'll hope to see you next week!
Kind regards

Budget Fixed Blade Knives Under 50 SEK & Ruike Trekker LD43 - Vapentidningen No.9 - 2018

This year's last issue of Vapentidningen is on it's way out in stores at this moment. No.9 - 2018 contains two articles from yours truly about; budget fixed blade knives with price tags under 50 Swedish Korna (about 5 Euros) and also a smaller article on the Ruike Trekker LD43 Rescue Knife. Inside the same mag we also recommend you take a look at interesting articles like; Sauer 100 Fieldshoot (Fredrik Odebring), Glock 19x (Henrik Kalling) and a big test of rifle bags (Johan Ljungné).

The budget knife review is 3 pages long and cover 11 different knives. Basically I just got all fixed blades I could find in stores under 50 SEK and put them to the test. Of-course you can make really nice bargains also on the used market, but in this test we focus on new knives found in Sweden. In this group of test knives we could find highs and lows, and it's great to see that you don't need a thick wallet to be able to carve, hunt and explore in a nice manor.

In the smaller article on the Ruike Trekker LD43 Rescue Knife you get to meet a nice and robust EDC made in China.

We want to take this opportunity to thank for yet another nice magazine year with Vapentidningen. A big warm Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year to all readers and also to the editorial office of Vapentidningen. We look forward to an inspiring Spring covering for-instance; Hultafor's Premium Axes, Casström Lars Fält Knife and much more.

Nice reading dear friends!
