Re: 3rd Age Dunedain Ranger - Complete Functional Kit Breakdown

What are your thoughts on not carrying an axe and instead just carrying your seax? Do you find that for firewood duties that the knife serves well enough? Depends on what your firewood needs are. Are you trying to sustain a cookfire, or are you trying to heat your shelter? Are you heating a lean-to...

This is definitely getting etched in Tengwar somewhere!

Think anyone'd notice if you blatantly etched it in runes on a blade?

Re: 3rd Age Dunedain Ranger - Complete Functional Kit Breakdown

Greg and I joined about a month apart, being the 26th and 25th members, respectively. Even having a head start, I can't compare in terms of kit and completeness! That's easy to explain. We all have kept you too busy working on our stuff to be able to work on your own! New rule: No more Odigan commi...

Re: 3rd Age Dunedain Ranger - Complete Functional Kit Breakdown

I'm adopting 'Taurandir' as a given surname. It's a common habit in Midle-earth, it seems...Beleg Strongbow, Turin Turambar, Gandalf Greyhame, etc. I'm having a darned difficult time settling on a first name I can stomach. Tirathon is a good approximation of the meaning of 'Gregory', so that fits we...

Re: 3rd Age Dunedain Ranger - Complete Functional Kit Breakdown

Yes, Brett, that was definitely me. Not my best moment, but it was an important one that I remember fondly!

Thanks...you've been a great help.

Re: 3rd Age Dunedain Ranger - Complete Functional Kit Breakdown

Signalling fellow rangers or other forces, not airplanes. Eh, that just feels too late period to me. Regardless of whenever it may have been done in history, that feels way too specific and specialized a tool to be found wandering in the woods for years beyond reckoning. I don't liken Rangers as Sp...

Re: 3rd Age Dunedain Ranger - Complete Functional Kit Breakdown

Suggestions are welcome, but if I'm trekking in Middle-earth, I'm not expecting to come across many airplanes to signal to. The tinder box is quite reflective and could be made more so, but that's not on my personal priority list. I've shaved successfully with my byknife. As for Gauntlets/Gloves...I...

3rd Age Dunedain Ranger - Complete Functional Kit Breakdown

It has been ten and a half years since I joined this wonderful community. It filled a much-needed void in my life at the time, and has served me well ever since to develop new skills and pursue new adventures. Somewhere in all of that, equally due to procrastination, disorganization, and my own stup...

Re: 3A Dunedain Trekker's Iron Cauldron [V2]

Yes, the bail can hang all the way down on the side of the pot like you'd expect a copper boiler's to. In the past, my bail has been friction-fit just tight enough that it could stand upright when on coals in the fire. This one can as well with a little phenagling, but I'm actually thinking I'll try...

Re: 3A Dunedain Trekker's Iron Cauldron [V2]

The way Elleth's hinges was pretty cool, but I asked that my bail wouldn't detach...I have a smaller set of coal tongs I forged years ago already in my tool roll (first photo, in fact...all the way to the right, blurred in the background.)

3A Dunedain Trekker's Iron Cauldron [V2]

Greetings! Awhile back, Elleth shared her beautiful custom iron cookpot HERE . We were all impressed with how well it turned out, but I hadn't really given much thought to the function behind the Culturally compelling look and feel of iron vs. the tin lined copper that most of us, myself included, u...

Nicely done! A fair number of us have soft spots for Tinker Bare blade projects.
