While Im laid up for the next six weeks in a leg brace and walking frame I thought this may be a good project to do when I can sit outside. Ill be looking for a nice piece of ash when I can get out and about.

In 2006, Bushcraft Magazine ran an article for the “Mors Kochanski’s Try Stick”, a woodsman/bushcrafter’s teaching aid for students to develop their blade skills.

The “Try Stick” is nothing more than a stick, approximately an inch to inch and a half in diameter, and about fingertip to armpit in length. on the stick one carves various types of notches that would commonly be used in woodcraft/bushcraft.
