L21 - KAMBATI CAMP 19th – 21st Mar 2021

Club | News
Some of the Laager members decided to have an extra long weekend and arrived at Kambati on Thursday. Friday morning saw the rest of the members arriving and by the evening everyone had arrived to enjoy a lekka gesels around the fire with much laughter. Saturday morning found everyone trying to guess the mystery activity we had planned. At 2pm everyone gathered and was told they would be making a kite. Everyone became excited, like kids again, as no one had built a kite since childhood. Everybody had lots of fun making the kites and especially trying to fly them. Poor Lesley was made to run up and down by Leighton to try and get the kite to fly. Unfortunately, as per the Premier Log, John’s Liverpool kite did not feature at all and Robbie’s Manchester United kite took flight and stayed ahead. Sunday evening being an extra night, we had snacks which everyone enjoyed and a wonderful time around the fire again

Honey Badger Tong

Product | TheQuarterMaster
R521.93 Honey Badger Tong (various colours and sizes) The Tong blade is a modified version of a traditional South African biltong knife and a warncliff/sheeps foot blade. The straight edge finds the balance between a clip point and a forward sweeping blade making it useful in everyday utility and a defensive tool. The fully straight cutting edge makes it the easiest blade shape to resharpen and maintain well for everyday use. As with all Honey Badger knives, they are designed to be tough, hard-wearing and reliable while remaining practical & comfortable for Every Day Carry. The blade is a full flat grind with a razor sharp micro bevel out of box. The full flat grind both saves weight and adds to the Honey Badgers slicing ability. Ball bearings in the pivots give the knives a smooth, almost friction-less surface. Made of 8CR13MOV stainless steel which is easily sharpened and holds an edge.
