Hey guys, it’s been a while and I’ve been mostly toying around with things I’ve got, my cameras are great but the weather hasn’t been much cop for doing any decent filming.
A couple of weekends ago I went to the Kent County & Game Fair to meet a man named Chris Matthews who makes knives. I think it was Ed who put the seed of an idea that “I really need a decent knife for Africa” and after many nights reading up on knife steel types and tangs and handle materials I decided I must speak to someone who knew enough about the subject to advise me. So Chris was very helpful and consequently helped me make an informed decision. I bought a lovely Enzo Trapper blade (Scandinavian Grind) made of D2 steel with a Micarta handle… sound like a mouthful, yes it is! It also comes with a gorgeous leather sheath, it’s almost too nice to use.
Since then, I’ve been struggling to get in and out of work owing to the Bandit being still parked up in the parking bays at work. I’m commuting on the DRZ to work which is not ideal, however, we must do what we must do. I’ve noticed that the bike at over 5,500rpm gets a bit juddery so in the video below you can see me strip down the bike to clean out the float bowl.
Lastly, I’ve been doing some tutorials on how to use Adobe Premier Pro, for editing my footage and decided to compile a few clips in order for you to see what I’ve been doing with myself. 🙂
