About Butch

Bushcraft Butch is my newly formed business based in the heart of the Cotswolds.

My aim is to sell bushcraft and survival equipment that I personally use or recommend to people like me that have a passion for the great outdoors.

I have over 15 years’ experience in the camping and outdoor industry and have always been a bit of a gear freak! I’ve always had to have the newest toys for my next adventure.
After accumulating so much gear over the years I decided to go back to basics and try more minimalist adventures so bushcraft and survival was my next step and in May 2016 I decided to quit my job and start my own business doing what I love.

During my time working in the camping and outdoor industry I have made good relationships with many companies and suppliers which I continue to use today.

The name “Bushcraft Butch” is in honour of my grandfather “Butch”, his love for all things outdoors taught and inspired me at a very young age. Some of my earliest memories are of him taking me into woodlands looking for moss to line my grandmothers flower baskets, or finding just the right stick to whittle and make a walking stick. Putting all that together along with the family camping holidays and Butch’s ability to fix anything with the bare essentials, I was hooked.

I don’t claim to be an expert in bushcraft or survival, all I give is my person opinion or recommendation on products I have used and tested over my 15 + years in the industry.
To help me with this and broaden my knowledge I continue to go on multiple bushcraft and survival courses as well as many of my own adventures.
