   Lol, the first thing I thought of when reading the title was Kep & his blog. He hasn't been active here for a while , but last I checked his blog was still active.
:)


   Anyway, Thanks for sharing the link! I am about to read the article & watch the video now.

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! ;)

   Well I just returned to comment. I think he has great skills in spoon carving from what I saw in the video & he seems to be liking his business, but there also appeared to be a touch of regret that by having the shop his life is more complicated than it was.

     I was amazed to hear that he was getting between 12 -15 British pounds a spoon, also.($19-25 US) I would not have thought he would be able to get that much a spoon. But I figure he knows his value in that area. Must be a decent business to cover the overhead costs to maintain a shop.

     Anyway, good for him!
