    Great collection of great videos, but I’m curious about the lack of a few tools.
    Adze?
    File and Stones (for sharpening those tools)?
    Crook Knife?



  2. Jack Eddinger on October 3, 2022 at 2:27 am

    I’ve found that a really good knife for green carving is a carpenters utility knife, the blade is sharp and thin which is a good shape for this kind of work and you never have to sharpen it. granted you will not be able to do everything you would with a regular knife but for most things it works very well.

    Love the variety of your vids Dave. Very informative. Thanks

    Hey Dave, what happen with the Rokon series? I would love to see that beast in action!



  5. SerJahPhoto on October 3, 2022 at 2:34 am

    50 if you’re lucky enough to find them on a flea market.



  6. Bill K. on October 3, 2022 at 2:34 am

    Great information Dave, thanks for sharing with us.



  7. Pete Paul on October 3, 2022 at 2:35 am

    Hey Dave, would a Michigan Axe work well with this kit?



  8. BLACKIE THOMAS on October 3, 2022 at 2:36 am

    the fact..that we still can find froes..spokeshaves..draw knives..tells me that the skill of green wood working and frontier / homestead wood craft..is not so far removed from us.. a generation or so ago it was still common..thats why we can find the tools at flea markets..think about that for a sec…when was the last time you saw a muzzleloading cannon sextant or a flintlock spring vice? they are too far removed from us and have gone to scrap long ago..thanks for this series Dave…i wish i had learned more of this type of work from my grandfather and great uncles..they did it out of need..and didn’t see any use for it once they could buy the lumber/ product cheap enough..really looking forward to this..safe journeys



  9. SirLobsterman on October 3, 2022 at 2:38 am

    a great, inexpensive addition to this kit would be some files.



  10. John McAlhany on October 3, 2022 at 2:41 am

    Hey David! Do you think its possible to forge a hewing hatchet from a fell axe?



  11. Holy Rock Forge on October 3, 2022 at 2:42 am

    What about like a hand drill of some kind?



  12. Jeremiah Shine on October 3, 2022 at 2:43 am

    I use my Japanese style timber saw mostly. It has a larger tooth for ripping on one side and a finer crosscut saw on the other. The ripping side is great for fine green crosscutting and the smaller tooth for extra fine cutting.



  13. Jerry Mollett on October 3, 2022 at 2:46 am

    David. can you do a video about proper axe hachet replacement. don’t it and doing it right are two different things. thank you for all you do jerry in West Virginia. I hope to attend a class soon.



  14. Charles Finley Jr on October 3, 2022 at 2:46 am

    What do you think about a tomahawk in this kit



  15. Neill Wylie on October 3, 2022 at 2:48 am

    Quality video. Thanks once again for the upload.



  16. redhatchet on October 3, 2022 at 2:49 am

    Great vid, as usual =)



  17. CanadianKnifeCollector on October 3, 2022 at 2:50 am

    I would say this is more of a 100 dollar tool kit.



  18. John Shelton on October 3, 2022 at 2:51 am

    Dave do you have any construction plans for your bodgers bench with shaving horse?



  19. Nate Bomb on October 3, 2022 at 2:54 am

    awesome video man….I just loaded up onΒ  a bunch of goodies from an auction.



  20. 𝖛𝖆𝖑𝖍𝖆𝖑𝖑𝖆 α›Ÿ on October 3, 2022 at 2:55 am

    Love IT!🀘🏻



  21. Dan Haywood on October 3, 2022 at 2:55 am

    So cool being able to make whatever I need. Really enjoy learning and experiencing bushcraft. I love living in Appalachia, and forage plants and mushrooms, throw my Tomahawk’s, made some super strong green Tulip Poplar cord today as relaxed in my sylvan chair. Now TN has passed laws making most camping a felony. I was going to buy land and start a homestead, but I was planning on probably moving into my van and checking out properties while canoeing and saving money, and I could just move onto my land with my van. I came into the state living in my motorhome with my dog four years ago, been using the VA here. Now all of that camping would be felony or misdemeanor depending on whatever crock of shit. So Im thinking I had enough. My entire life has been me being prevented from basic needs and living by laws and whatever B’s, and I don’t want to be a camping felon filling a profit prison cell, or forced to pay to attend legal camping school so Im going to brody on down to Costa Rica and live in those mountains instead. No cops popping out of the back of my toilet trying to make me a felon there because some new asswipe law. I don’t see a good future for Americans, pretty sure they’ll be eating each other within five years tops. I want to miss out on all that.



  22. B Barker on October 3, 2022 at 2:56 am

    This is a great video Dave and what seems to be slipping by some of the people commenting is that the value of things change from region to region and depending on how much someone values a tool or thinks something is worth more than it actually is just needs some good ole lessons on bartering the price. I recently picked up an old outside spring caliper for about $1.00 but it would cost me almost $60.00 for a new one that is as good as the one I bought. Deals are out there people you might have to look around some but they can be found and you don’t have to get everything right away.

    Dave thanks again for the video’s that you do to help others learn!!



  23. JHAYKHAY25 on October 3, 2022 at 2:56 am

    These are the video’s where Dave excels (in my opinion), the ones where he’s showing you, you don’t have to listen to mall ninja’s, you can get plenty of bang for your buck if you put in a little effort yourself and you’ll learn a whole lot more getting there! I was hugely disappointed when I heard Dirty Rotten Survival didn’t get a second series, Dick Strawbridge is another hugely knowledgeable guy and the show didn’t stoop to freak show tactics (rare enough these days).



  24. chip2567 on October 3, 2022 at 2:56 am

    spiting and ribbing what is ribbing? most these heard to get they do not want to let them go if you can find them.



  25. Trefor Parry on October 3, 2022 at 2:57 am

    Great explanation. Thank you for sharing.



  26. Karl Vorwerk on October 3, 2022 at 2:58 am

    If you can some videos on twig furniture:



  27. TheEnder Boss on October 3, 2022 at 2:59 am

    Hello Dave,,, have you ever consider being on the History Chanel for a new season of Alone?



  28. STRYKER on October 3, 2022 at 3:00 am

    you need to limb a tree on that all wheel drive bike



  29. RP on October 3, 2022 at 3:00 am

    Hey brother,

    Any chance of you and the guys doing a set of videos with winter around the corner basing out of the cabin? Hunting and the like?

    God bless,

    Mike



  30. Jerry Mollett on October 3, 2022 at 3:00 am

  31. Pappy on October 3, 2022 at 3:02 am

  32. peecmkr45 on October 3, 2022 at 3:02 am

    Great video. I like to see you talking about the basic woodworking hand tools.



  33. Manuel Beltran on October 3, 2022 at 3:03 am

    the dude abides.



  34. Aleph Null on October 3, 2022 at 3:03 am

    you’re awesome man i always like seeing you in stuff i learned a lot



  35. ratrod diesels on October 3, 2022 at 3:05 am

    those tools are keepsakes , they built america .



  36. Tom Estlack on October 3, 2022 at 3:06 am

    That is some of the best instructional material I’ve seen on green woodworking so far!



  37. Danny Palmer on October 3, 2022 at 3:08 am

    You must have really cut your finger bad. I see you are still favoring it.



  38. qzetu on October 3, 2022 at 3:08 am

    I think a rasp & hook knife should be in your kit for finer work. They are probably not necessary but would be very useful.



  39. Rick McQuay on October 3, 2022 at 3:09 am

    Good overview but the $50 price tag is unrealistic. In my neck of the woods, I’d be lucky to get any one of these tools for $50 unless I spent weeks or months going to estate sales. I know because I own vintage versions of all these except the froe, still haven’t found a good quality one for under $100.



  40. HORIZONS on October 3, 2022 at 3:09 am

    Thumbs up!



  41. Dutch Courage on October 3, 2022 at 3:11 am

    I miss some sort of drilling implement to make holes for connecting pieces together with dowels ?



  42. Wandering the Wilderness on October 3, 2022 at 3:11 am

    Appreciate your advice and looks like a good cheaper kit.



  43. Pappy on October 3, 2022 at 3:13 am

    additionally,i found a draw knife at the flea market but the guy wanted 45 bucks! and it needed new handles and sharpened,i let him keep it.but i also picked up an old cleaver,about 2 lb,…5.00, truth i swear…gotta love flea markets. lately i have been hitting a lot of 3.00-5.00 deals.



  44. dcurrier83 on October 3, 2022 at 3:15 am

    $15 dollar froe, AWESOME!! I have searched on and off for a froe about three years. I couldn’t find one for under 70……… I ended up making my own out of 1/8” x 2” strap iron and built a massive oak handle for some major torque. I used it once and the edge started to fold. not the best steel for this stuff….. Do you think a heat treat in a coal forge quenched in oil would help this tractor supply strap iron steel? I was going to make a hand adze as well maybe I will use an old leaf spring this time!! Love the videos by the way!! Thanks



  45. Jonathan Jonathan on October 3, 2022 at 3:16 am

    so luckuy us citizens here in argentina that head axecan cost like for us are for you up the 100 dollar price!dam



  46. gary smith on October 3, 2022 at 3:17 am

    a small chisel would make a good addition



  47. Tom Panetti on October 3, 2022 at 3:18 am

    Here we go. Going for a great ride with the champ. Good stuff in the horizon. Thanks



  48. Eric Johnson on October 3, 2022 at 3:20 am

    Really love this series. I agree that greenwood working is a huhe part of bushcraft. In my opinion its one of the aspects that distinguish bushcraft from just camping. Great video, hope you continue on this series someday



  49. Shane K on October 3, 2022 at 3:21 am

    Is there any truth to the common belief that you have to split wood shingles on a certain moon phase? Seems like a wives tail but I’ve heard it a lot in WV.



  50. noble green on October 3, 2022 at 3:22 am

    hey dave you say that you can make a new axe handle in the bush, i challenge you to make a video where you make an axe handle in the bush with nothing but whats on that table, that would be an amazing video
