Bushcraft is a big passion in my life, rooted in a deep love towards our nature.
Bushcrafting is about a certain set of outdoor skills and a strong mental mindset.
My goal is to pass on some of these skills and knowledge to others, and to provide active bush crafters and all
other outdoor people the opportunity to use some of the functional, durable, high quality types of outdoor gear I use myself.
