PEMMICAN | Watch this before you make food for outdoor adventures



#pemmican #huntingfood #campingfood
Watch this video to learn a very simple method to make pemmican, it is a stable, long lasting food that is perfect for outdoor adventures.  Pemmican is full of protein, fats, and carbohydrates to give you boundless energy when you need it on the trail or in the backcountry.  It has been made and used by indigenous peoples, travelers and settlers all over the world. Although it has many different names throughout history and around the world there are a few constants.  Pemmican is made from whatever you have on hand or whatever is in season.  While we have provided a basic recipe that can be made with ingredients bought in the store, we encourage you to experiment with what you can gather and hunt from the landscape in your region of the world.  If you do this you will probably be eating exactly what the people of that area were eating a thousand years ago.  bon appetit!   -The Makers

SDP 022 FRIENDSHIP | A paradigm shift and a new perspective



#SociallyDisabled #friendship #veteran
SDP 022 FRIENDSHIP | A paradigm shift and a new perspective

Mantra for the week.  No friendship is an accident. - O. Henry (William Sydney Porter)

Today we are going to put Friendship into perspective.  There seems to be a lot of misinformation about what actually constitutes a friend.  Of course, this is just my opinion and this criterion will change for everyone but I think that there are definitely some constants that remain across the board.

This is likely to be a paradigm shift for you concerning what is a friend.  We have been conditioned to think that a friend is someone that is always there for you when you need them and especially when you are at your lowest. 

What is friendship and how do you build and maintain one? 
I don’t think that a friend is some unconditional supporter that is there for you in your dark times.  All the MEMES say something to that effect.  About you know who your true friends are when you are at your worst etc.  I think that is one sided BS.  To me that is such a selfish statement that if that is the requirement very few people would live up to that litmus test. 
Here are some points to consider:
1 You are only the centre of your universe, not everyone else’s. 
2 No one is plotting against you and you are not the topic of every conversation. 
3 Friendship is a give and take that cannot exist one sided. 
4 Sometimes the best thing a friend can do is give you space to figure your own shit out.
5 Friends listen they don’t lecture; with free advice you get what you pay for. 
6 Friends are not at your beckon call, do expect them to drop everything because you need them.
7 Sometimes true friends don’t actually talk to each other for a very long time. 
8 Friends communicate open and honest.  Sugar is poison. 
9 Friends are grateful and reciprocal but not indebted to each other.
10 Above all, A real friend will not put you in a position that makes you uncomfortable. 

Here are five things to do with a false friend or toxic relationship: 
1 Create distance
2 Limit entanglements
3 Don’t create a tit for tat situation, let it go when you are one up. 
4 Don’t share your problems with people you don’t fully trust.
5 Avoid any conversation that has the potential to instigate strong emotional reactions. 

BONUS  TIP: The enemy of my friend is not my enemy.  If I lived by that rule I would have no friends at all.  Besides what happens when you snub someone because they had a falling out with one of your friends.  Then those two make up and now neither of them wants to talk to you?  This has happened to me more than I care to remember.  If two friends are falling out then I suggest you just step back let them solve the issue on their own, remain friends with both but keep your distance so as not to appear to have taken a side.  And most important, don’t be a double agent.  You will be tried and found guilty as a traitor by both sides.

HOW TO MAKE A KNIFE Part 3 | Heat treating and grinding the bevels wit...


Come along for part 3 and see my hot stamping and heat treating process.  This is how i get the job done, what do you do differently?




#knifemaking #heattreating #bladegrinding
In this video I will perform the heat treating and grinding of the bevels.  I will do this with common shop equipment and without the use of special grinding jigs.   If you have wanted to learn how to make knives follow along this series as I take you step by step through the process that I use. I found a piece of Damascus billet in the scrap bin so I am going to turn it into two amazing bushcraft knives they will be of my "woodsman" pattern.  Come along as I begin the build and subscribe to see the progress over the next few videos.  See the process that I use to turn a quality steel billet into a pair of amazingly functional knives. 

We are the makers, we are the movers and shakers, so let's get moving.

YOUR KNIFE GRINDER TOOL REST SUX | Do this before you grind another knife


Level up your knife grinder with this inexpensive little project.



#knifegrinder #norseman #makersmovement

I realized that most knife grinder tool rests are too small or should at least be modular if you are going to get the most out of your grinder.  This is the solution that I came up with to solve the problem and expand the capabilities of my grinder.  I know that a large tool rest is not needed most of the time, but when it is needed nothing else will do.  I hope this video streamlines your process and expands the capabilities of your equipment.  Happy grinding makers. 

Just getting started in Knifemaking?  Here are a couple grinders that will pay for themselves very quickly.  I built my shop with mine and payed for practically everything inside it.  There are many other options out there but this is the best bang for the buck, and it will not let you down.  I recommend the Shop Fox over the Grizzly.  It is cheaper, virtually identical, comes with a 10" wheel and the Grizzly comes with an 8".
