1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    Hey all

    This is my first review on here so bear with me...

    After reading Marks thread "new hobby, knife making" I was very interested in what he would produce out of an old file.
    Not been on for a short while and noticed two of Marks knifes were in the the sales section :eek: was stopping my self from buying another toy at first but after few visits to the advert , I thought I'd best snap that one with the sheaf before someone else beats me to it....

    Dealing with Mark was a hassle free and a smooth transaction, before I could say shamalamadingdong there was a nice little package waiting for me at the workshop :D

    Opening the package it was well packed with bubble wrap, I got the first glimpse at the knife I thought WOW!! look at the quality of this! Pulled her out of the sheath with a nice little snap and here it was, what a stunning looking knife.... A full tang thick shiny blade with almost full length bevel accompanied with black fiber spacer and lovely zebrano wood scales with stainless steel hollow pins. I couldn't believe this was only his 5th knife he has made :eek: The feel/weight/balance was absolutely perfect and with that thick blade I think it might be perfect for a spot of carving...

    I couldn't help my self but put an edge on her with my Japanese water stone. After a bit of getting use to the angle and curve of the blade she was gliding across the stone beautifully and before I knew it she was ready for the leather strop and o my it was sharp! Quick shave of my arm and leg to test her and she was spot on. I might of had an edge but I had taken the shine off in a few places whilst I was getting use to sharpening it and that wont look good on the pictures will it? Couple of hours later polishing with autosol she was back to her former glory (if not better ;)

    When looking at the pictures of the sheath I thought to my self I might get a leather one made up, as I started to use it I soon changed my mind.... So well made, it simply click in and out holding it firmly in place also with a handy belt holster. Well made, well impressed!!

    Overall conclusion of the (file) knife I am over the moon with this fine piece it will always be treasured and beside me on all my adventures.

    Thank you Mark, you're a truly talented person keep at it...
