    Butchering Gear

    probably how you skin too, 2 hand job if can lock the leg down use 1 hand to hold the skin up and away whilst you flay, and the right knife too can make a huge difference, using a curved skinning knife is way more ideal for flaying then a boning knife

  16. 15years worn daily so u sat at a desk all day that's why they last so long socks are only as good as the shoes you wear, wearing badly fitting shoes socks wont do you any good I've just used holeproof explorer socks ( liars they do get holes in them). never had problem with them comfort wise great, walked/waded in water and they've still been comfy and dry out quite well.

    Honing Steels

    nothing wrong with using a steel to touch up the sharpness of of the knife, though the main sharpening should be on a stone. being that I use knifes everyday, I use the stone often using the steel only to maintain the edge not using the steel to make or sharpen knife in the field I'd already have the knife sharp "obviously". a small medium rough steel would be my choice, enough bite to keep the edge but not too rough to eat the blade
  20. Try southern cross tents, their hand made canvas based in Melbourne, I've had 1 for over 20 years not sure price wise though Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Butchering Gear

    being that I have yet to see a sambar in the flesh, gonna go with a guess and compare a sambar with a goat ( feral/farmed) but both would be lean game animals, just means that your knife has to be legit sharp as the skin will sit tighter and harder. Cows are comparative easier given the carry more fiesh.

    sin is right, skin will blunt a knife what you need to DO is being able to secure the leg this will help, you need to run the knife between hide and meat pretty good example not as good as me
