With the nationwide launch of the network coming up on the 21st we want to encourage members to create some more tutorials as these benefit all members and especially help people new to bushcraft find their footing.
To help this process along we have a great prize pack that will be awarded to the member who creates what we judge as the best tutorial between now and the 28th of July
. That's 2 weeks, plenty of time to create something great that can be used by the community over and over again. The judges will be looking for something that is easy to follow, sufficiently detailed but jargon free, and illustrated with pictures/illustration/videos when necessary, and is on a good bushcraft topic.

The Prize Pack
An EKA COMPACT, an excellent knife to keep in your pocket or bag. It measures 3 - 5/8" closed 6" open with a blade length of 2 - 5/8." The blade is sharp and made from 12C27 Sandvik steel. This is an extremely high quality Swedish made steel designed for knives and surgical instruments. The edges on these knives retain their sharpness longer than many other steels. The handle is made of black resinate plastic and has a textured
underbelly. It is a modern version of the classic Swedish design with an oversized handle.
A 100m roll of Military Linen string, vacuum packed. A good Shrafter should always have some good cordage and linen string is prized for its strength when wet as well as its resistance to rot.
And a Hot-Spark Fire Starter, bearing the official equipment seal of the Boy Scouts of America. Every Shrafter should have multiple ways to start a fire and so this is a valuable addition to anyone's kit.
