Meet the Wolfgangs HUNTER knife
As some of you may know, Rathwulven Bushcraft does collaborate with the German knife manufacturer Wolfgangs in terms of product development and improvement. Recently Wolfgangs have issued their new model called HUNTER.
This new model is specifically designed for bushcrafters, hunters and fishermen. It features a solid stick tang handle and a drop-point blade design manufactured from 420 steel. The handle shell is made from durable rubber to ensure a high level of comfort – its diamond shaped grid provides an optimal grip even in wet or cold weather conditions. The knife is currently trading for EUR 19,90 only.

NINE BOUNDARIES TO RESPECT TO SAVE OUR EARTH
Here is a good read for you:
“The Nine Boundaries Humanity Must Respect To Keep The Planet Habitable” written by Claire Asher. The article defines the following nine boundaries which must be kept to save our planet:
Atmospheric Aerosol Loading
Stratospheric Ozone Depletion
We all can make a difference by adjusting our behavioural patterns, our consumerism and our way of life. In order to do so, everyone must first understand the impact caused by humans on our environments. The article goes in-depth, illustrating current complications and offers solutions.
Make sure to read it – it is worth it!

WINTER OVERNIGHTER & MEN’S MENTAL HEALTH
Winter is here and I want to take this moment to briefly talk about a serious topic: Modern man and his struggles on a psychological level.
It is no secret that many people are suffering from depression and anxiety these days, yet all too often people consider psychological struggles to be negligible.
Not worth talking about. Maybe even a full-on taboo.
Now that the worlds is facing yet another covid-related lockdown and all the mental stress that comes with it, I just wish to share an older talk video with you.
Last year I shot my take on the #showusyoursteak challenge – a campaign started by Haze Outdoors aiming at generating awareness for men’s mental health while spending some time outdoors, preparing a nice steak.
If you want, join me in this winter overnighter video – I am sharing some insights I had throughout the years. Maybe they will help you to transform your life, too:
If you liked the video, please consider leaving a comment. I am also curious to hear about your story, so if you want, please share it with the world and me. If you also want to shoot a video on this topic, please feel free to do so and consider this blog post a nomination for you, too. Wishing you all the best!

RATHWULVEN’S BANNOCK RECIPE
Bannocks (aka trapper bread) are probably one of the most popular dishes for woodsmen and adventurers. Legend has it that bannocks first originated in Scottland – so if you want to feast like a highlander, check out our recipe here:
1 1/2 cups of flour (135 g)
3/4 cups of water (120 ml)
1 spoon of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 spoon of oil (20 ml)
You may wish to add a spoon of seeds like fennel, plantago, sesame or so.
Mix the flower with all the other ingredients. Then knead the dough for about 10 minutes. The dough should be smooth and not sticky. Roll a dough ball with both hands and press it in between your palms so that you end up with a disk measuring about the size of your palm and being about as thick as a thumb. Add a bit of oil to your pan or cooking pot and bake until golden brown and lofty. That’s it!
Enjoy & happy baking!
