SPECIAL DEDICATION IN MEMORY OF MY BEST FRIEND

 

I dedicate this website in its entirety in memory of my very best friend of all time, Dave (Geordie) Lisle, with whom I shared so many a memorable experience during our army service together and afterwards, once back in civvy street.

 

We would have shared much more in our late years were it not for his early and sudden demise on 15th July 2005, at the age of 54. A greater and more meaningful loss I have not, so far, experienced.

 

Our friendship was unconditional, where loyalty and looking out for each other came naturally. Davey was indeed a true and steadfast special friend, the likes of whom comes along only the once in a lifetime. As I get older my memory has started to let me down. But when it comes to remembering Davey and the crazy  things we did, it's just like it was only yesterday... A friend like Davey can never be forgotten and hardly a day passes that he's greatly missed.

 

 

MY LOGO FOR LEATHER EMBOSSING AND BLADE ELECTRO ETCHING

 

I have long been stamping my leather work with an eight pointed cross below a bird of prey, using a couple of standard embossing stamps. For quite some time though, I had wanted something more specific and tidy, but procrastination is the thief of time, so it took me a while to fulfill my wish. When it comes to designing a personal Logo, one tries to make it as personally meaningful and distinctive as possible. As British as I am and having proudly served Queen and Country, I am originally of Maltese stock, hence the final rendition of my logo.

 

Although Malta is known as the George Cross Island, it is the eight pointed Cross of the Knights of St. John that is universally recognized as the Maltese Cross. As for the Maltese Falcon, it's place in history is far more meaningful than depicted in the film, The Maltese Falcon. Its origin dates back to when the Knights of St. John were granted Malta as their base, for which they had to pay a token rent of one live Maltese Falcon annually.

  

There are no intended offensive weapons displayed on this Website. Knives shown are designed for and solely intended as cutting tools for use by responsible law abiding Bushcrafters, Hunters, Fishermen etc. within the scope of the Law.

1. An article which has a blade or is sharply pointed.

2. A folding pocket knife, which has a blade with a cutting edge which exceeds 7.62cm (3 inches)'.

 

This is contrary to Section 139 (1) and (6) Criminal Justice Act 1988.   Defences:

 

1. It shall be a defence for a person charged with an offence under this section to prove that he had good reason or lawful authority for having an article with him in a public place.

2. It shall also be a defence for a person charged with an offnce under this section to prove that he had the article with him for:
