We’ve really enjoyed the shows this year. It started with a new venue for The Bushcraft Show in May in Derbyshire which went very well and we thank everyone who visited our stand for making it such a fun weekend. We then had The Knives UK show at the end of June at Tortworth Court Hotel – which was particularly busy this year with lots of demonstrations and talks in the extra space of the Marquee, a friendly one day show with the leading UK knife makers and retailers selling everything you need to start making your own knives. And last but by no means least The Wilderness Gathering in August at The Bison Farm in Wiltshire – as usual a great family bushcraft event with so much for everyone to enjoy, it was great catching up with old friends and regular offenders (customers) at our stand. Our range gets bigger and bigger now we’ve introduced new products from other selected makers and the show stand was full to capacity. Evening entertainment was great too and it was nice to have a chat and a beer amongst such great company at the end of each day.

We would like to thank everyone for their custom this year and also for all the positive feedback about the new website. As Christmas is almost upon us, any orders placed placed from 17th December cannot be guaranteed to arrive in time for Christmas.
We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year.
We have had a lot of customers asking us, for a long time, if we could send them an email when we had certain items for sale. Until now this has not been possible and only people who followed us on Facebook or Instagram received any notifications when we added items to the website store.
Good news – we now have a new feature on our web store that you can leave your email address with to be notified when an item becomes available again in our shop.
We really hope this helps you get the items you are looking for.
Many thanks for all the support on our new website.
All the best, cheers, Ben and Lois

We would like to thank all our customers (many of whom have become friends) for their support so far this year. We have enjoyed The Bushcraft Show, Knives UK and The Wilderness Gathering and were astounded at the amount of returning customers. We thank you for your support and encouragement especially when we are demonstrating at the shows and will have to provide extra seating for next year !
We have had our busiest year yet and with that in mind we would encourage you to order early for Christmas.
We are planning to renovate our workshop shortly, which should help to improve productivity by keeping the dust down and the heat up in the winter months.
You can now follow what we are doing in the workshop everyday by following us on Instagram. You will get regular photos of our latest projects along with how we make the tools and leather work here at the “Craft Lab”. We hope you enjoy seeing what we are up to.
