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!
