RMB UPDATE 9/30/2015

Hello bushcrafting friends!

Hope you all are well. Just a quick update on the latest happenings here at RMB.......

Sometime over the next 4-6 weeks, I should be able to make an announcement about a major project I've been working on for the last 5 months. Due to a non-disclosure agreement, I am not at liberty to discuss it until the project's release date, but I am very excited, and it is the reason I have been slow to post new articles and reviews. The only thing I can say is that it is not a TV project.......

REVIEWS/ARTICLES, etc- Just a heads up to everyone who has been waiting patiently for the Jimmy Lile First Blood Knife review...... 

Jimmy Lile Knives is going to send us another piece that I think will add greatly to the review, so we have been delayed by a few more weeks while it is being finished. Everything at Lile Knives is hand made, so obviously this is not something that can be done overnight. I am very excited to complete this review and can't thank Jimmy Lile Knives enough for working with us. Here is a teaser photo of the knife that we took that will be posted in the upcoming review:

I am also working on finishing a bunch of new knife and axe reviews, survival gun and gear reviews, new Tips and Tricks, as well as posting a number of new Made in the USA products. Once I am done with the project I have been working on, I will have much more time to devote to posting new material. I will also start doing giveaways again for loyal readers, so keep an eye out for those.

Most importantly, thank you all for your continued support. I absolutely love to hear your comments and thoughts, so please keep them coming!

Primitive smoking rack

Primitive smoking rack made with Benchmade's new Jungle Bolo Knife. A tarp will be wrapped around the rack to contain smoke from a small Mountain Alder wood fire, which will cure rabbit meat hanging off of it (more photos coming soon).

Benchmade Jungle Bolo/Lamb's Quarters wild edible plant

I harvested this Lamb's Quarters plant (Wild Spinach) while out field testing the Benchmade Jungle Bolo knife last month. Made a "bush salad" with the fresh leaves- yum! If you ever get the chance to try Lamb's Quarters, it's mighty tasty.

Special Thanks to New Pioneer For Taking Quick Action

Rocky Mountain Bushcraft would like to thank the editorial staff of New Pioneer Magazine for their quick action in addressing the issue of six RMB Tips & Tricks articles being used by a guest writer without proper accreditation.

The material not correctly attributed (see jpeg scans below) was "Healing with Honey," "Aspen Bark Bushcraft," "Protect Your Hacker," "Improvised Spark Makers," "Bandana Wring Out," and "Put a Corkscrew to Work."

To New Pioneer's credit, as soon as they were notified of the improperly credited text they took immediate action. An apology was quickly posted on their Facebook page-, and they will also be publishing a printed apology in their Winter 2016 edition, due out October 20th. New Pioneer was also nice enough to invite me to be the new author of their Woodsman's Almanac, which will renamed the Bushcraft Guidebook. In addition, their online listing of the Almanac was updated to reflect the correct authorship…/the-new-pioneer-summer-2015-is…/

Hats off to New Pioneer for stepping up, and I'm looking forward to working with them on the upcoming Bushcraft Guide.

Cheers, Jason
