Guys, I've been absent for a while now but rest assured I'm still here. While I think all this bushcraft trademark nonsense is complete bs, I do like the name change. It gives us separation from a group that is clearly in it for the money and doesn't want to play nice.

I will be updating the logo to reflect the name change and just like before, you guys are free to use it in anyway the owners see fit. I needed some new shirts anyway.

Well, I like it. I think it might actually be better for me than "bushcraft" ever was. I really do believe it describes who we are a little better and that's really important to me when it comes to a name. There's a fair bit of 'yarn' spinning here, there's skills taught, and there's a lot of memories and reminiscing, so I think "lore" is a real good fit.

As far as the knife goes, well, you've explained that, but I really don't see any chance of confusion there.

Great job PW. You are to be commended for a great response in all this. You kept yourself well (in public, anyways) and it really looks like you acted as opposed to reacted, and I really respect that.

Kudos my friend. Very well done. :thumbsup:

Three cheers for PW!
I totally agree with what Kanukkarhu says here!

And thanks PW for change the name only.

I love being out in the woods!   I like this quote from Mors Kochanski - "The more you know, the less you carry". I believe in the same creed, & think  "Knowledge & honed skills" are the best things to carry with ya when you're out in the wilds. They're the ultimate "ultralight" gear! ;)

I really like the new name guys! But what I like even more is the warm, welcoming atmosphere I've encountered here since joining. This place is a far cry from some of the other bush forums I've frequented in recent years, where overinflated egos, cliquey elitist groups and bullying seem to be the norm. Rest assured Blades and Bushlore has the support of the community and a bright future ahead of them, no doubt! I look forward to sharing and learning with you all.

The guy that was heading up that project is on a temporary leave of absence. We may be looking into other options, but as far as I know, until we get the new logo done, they are on hold.

We will make an announcement when the new patches and shirts are available :thumbsup:
