Great quality bad service.

I ordered a viking whetstone necklace and a foraging bandana. I received only the necklace without the bandana. I would love to get the bandana I paid for as well. The whetstone necklace works great however.

Functional beauty

This is a really cool add to any kit. It’s lovely and more useful than you might imagine. I’m fortunate that the plants represented are local to the PNW where I live. Would love to see more regions get representation! I suggest desert plants in particular.
