Bushcraft is just that, a craft, and like any craft it has its tools. Like spears. Think about it, you’re looking at your bushcraft toolkit and ticking off the items. Large and small kniives, check; whetstone, check, snares, line and hooks, check; re-purposed single shot 12 gauge musket, check. But where’s the spear?
You don’t have one. Bad error. Do you go to Cabela’s or Academy or Bass Pro, and give your money to “the Man” for some hyped up piece of outdoors industry gimmickry? No, that’s not what bushcraft’s about. You make one yourself. Hammer, forge and tongs.
Here at the Compound we hope you find this short infovideo as helpful as we do.
