I've seen a couple of axes from that part of the world, and so far the stamp was always at the bottom placed.. But who knows..

These little folding stoves in the picture exist already for a long time. Produced still till this day, not only by esbit. The oldest one I've seen was from the 70's by the communist regime in eastern Europe.
I used to have one from a army dump shop, but it's not practical at all.
My very favorite folding stove is the Titanium Lixada wood stove:

It goes completely flat in a small, weighs almost nothing, easy to setup.
I've made also some mods to 2 other ones so you can use them either independently or connected to each other if you're not the only one using it.
it fits still in a cargo pocket or haversack.

I have a similar issue with axes, and I found it works better to sell them 1 by 1 instead of several grouped together. Also not putting everything you have for sale at the same time but, really 1 by 1.
Good luck with the knives selling !

What is the blue material?  Nice blade shape and that is a really nice piece of antler.

I dream of flying once in a while.  I have to flap my arms really hard.  Now and then I can soar.  Like being under canopy.

This is sort of gear related as you can repair gear with it.  It is a tape that comes in clear or black and you can buy die cut forms in black (Including some that are kind of dumb) but quite useful at the same time.  The black die cuts are in circles, rounded triangles and rectangles, and some figures.  The figures are Big Foot, a squirrel, a tree, a thistle, a crescent moon, stars, and a maple leaf.  You use it to repair rips and tears in your fabric gear.  I used the clear on the inside of a coated nylon jacket to stop it from flaking off.  I repaired a couple of rips in a windbreaker and my hooded chore jacket.  The clear comes in rolls about 1 1/2" by up to 5'.  It is fairly expensive but works well and from the coat I repaired about three years ago it holds up well.

Here is Big Foot on one of my windbreakers.  (it was a big rip)

I bought this online but it is available at several larger retailers.
