Other non – Sea Kayaking sites worth visiting.
These sites are nothing to do with sea kayaking specifically, but worth a look as some of their content has general relevance to us.
Britishblades.com provides a wealth of resources for anyone „into“ knives, axes and other sharp things. They also have good threads on lights, watches and other sparkly things.
BushcraftUK has a wide range of forums dealing with bushcraft, the outdoors etc. Worth a look.
Candlepowerforums.com is the place to look for just about anything to do with torches – it’s quite amazing just what they do.
