Are there any Swedes on this forum? If so, I need your help. on 07/18/2009 12:53:14 MDT Print View

I'm looking for a piece of gear that is hand made in Sweden and which cannot be ordered via the internet. Specifically, what I'm after is located on the country-side between Gnarp and Bergsjö in Nordantsig County in northern Sweden - 10 kilometers west of the E4, 20 kilometers from the Gulf of Bothnia, between Hudiksvall and Sundsvall, 340 kilometers north of Stockholm.

If there is anyone on this forum who is from Sweden and can help me out with this, I would be very, very appreciative. In return, I can pay you for your troubles or maybe find something unique to New York City that you would like.

Thanks!

Here's hoping this works...

It's top secret, dude. If I post details, everyone will want one & my scheme will be wrecked.

I'll give you some hints though: It's smaller than a bread box. And it's very, very old school.

It's not really UL gear. More along the lines of Bushcraft.

Dave, you're killing me. Hand made..can't be bought on the internet. If you say it is produced in small batches only once per year than you've successfully made me believe you've stumbled upon something of the highest quality which, if I were to ever need a similar product, would make me a fool to get any other make.

Spill it Dave..is it a knife?

Sorry, man. If I manage to get my prize, I'll post all about it. Until then, my lips are sealed...

Come on Swedish hikers... Come out, come out wherever you are.

Me think that is time to axe this thread before it gets out of hand.

Sorry Dave but you did put too much detail. 3 words, 3 sec on google.

I don't want an axe. I told you, what I'm after isn't available online.

Franco was on the right track, but...

This reminds of a thread that I posted last year where I was asking about applying a relatively new technology (Ion Mask) to tent material. The reason I did not want to name it (and I explained that...) was to see I anyone else had thought of it. My reasoning being that if nobody else had the same idea more than likely there was no merit to it. Some got VERY upset over it, completely missing the point ...

This what you're looking for?

I have a friend who lives in Uppsala, who might be willing to get you what you need. I also know some more Swedes in that region, so you could drop me a PM.
