After university, Tim Little tried his hand at several different trades but after spending the last eleven years as a postman, just happened to fall into knife making and, as it turned out and much to his surprise, actually turned out to be good at it!
Ammonite knives came about after becoming retired due to ill health. Tim didn’t know what to do and after a friend suggested knife making, he took it up and is now happier than he’s been for years! Tim has always made things and it’s a bit of a passion to make things the way he sees them which allows individuality and versatility in his creations.
Why the ammonite? It’s Tim’s favourite fossil and one of the first ones he can remember ever seeing as a small child (his mum had one in the garden).

Since 2015, he has been running courses for people from all walks of life including specialist courses for vulnerable adults and disadvantaged youths.

Paul Kirtley heads up the Frontier Bushcraft instructional team but all of our course leaders have experience of applying their skills, knowledge and judgement in wild places. This brings a level of experience and realism to our training that is hard to find elsewhere.
Not only that, because we run expeditions in wild and remote parts of the world, we often come into contact with people who use bushcraft as a major part of their daily lives. This informs our practice closer to home.
We bring to our UK-based bushcraft courses a sensibility, practicality and philosophy of using these skills for real, of living by them and depending upon them.
We encourage confidence and self-reliance as part of your outdoors mindset. Our aim is to share bushcraft skills with you in a way that is realistic, pragmatic, without romantic embellishment and extremely practical.
Fudge's Traditional Applejack
Applejack, almost as ancient as cider itself! Throughout history, cider makers would leave a barrel of cider out for ‘Jack Frost’ to freeze and remove the ice, leaving, for some reason, strong liquor behind. The process became known as ‘jacking’ and was how strong liquor was made before we discovered distillation. The product became known as ‘Applejack’.

Neil Taylor Furniture
I use native Herefordshire hardwoods such as oak and ash for my seats and components
and produce primitive style chairs with a contemporary feel which can live elegantly in any type of setting in home or office.
The barstools are very popular with kitchens and workshops alike.
One of the surface effects I can produce is pickling oak. This is when I mix iron of wire wool and vinegar which is an acid, together in a jar for a week then place mixture on oak wood – as it dries it reacts with the tannin in the wood and goes a dark colour.

The Art of Fire by Daniel Hume
Step by step guide to starting, building and handling fires
‘The Art Of Fire’ is Daniel Hume’s first book and is published by Penguin Random House. It has been translated into Italian and Dutch so far and will be available in Chinese, German, Polish, Spanish and Russian later this year.
Born in rural Suffolk in 1989, Daniel Hume is a naturalist and author, and an authority on traditional bush skills from around the world. One of his deepest interests throughout his life has been the art of making and using fire and, as a youngster, he set out to learn every method used to conjure it. In more recent years he has made it his mission to travel the world, often to the most remote corners, to meet people who still directly interact with fire from a traditional sense and learn from their wisdom. This combination has enabled him to master some of the most extraordinary native fire-making techniques from across the globe and gain a unique insight into what fire means to the human race. Daniel was an instructor at Ray Mears’ Woodlore School of Wilderness Bushcraft for eleven years, and from 2011 to 2017 he served as the company’s Head of Operations.

The Old Bag
The broad concept is to recycle! All of the products i make have been made from materials that would have otherwise ended up in landfill or perhaps being burned. Some are made on my sewing machine, many others are hand stitched and, as they are all custom made, they vary in colour shape and size. This adds to their individual appeal and charm I feel. The material and finished products are neither new nor ‘perfect’ and I believe that my modest price-point reflects this.
New for this year is the ‘self-sew’ pack which I’m sure will have broad appeal. Following the simple instructions, you will very soon be able to carry your own leather medieval ‘Possibles’ pouch!
Please do come along and see my lovely range of shopping/shoulder bags, pushes in a variety of sizes and colours, small money pouches as well as leather and plastic-coated quivers for adults and children alike.
