This Tibetan Lama traded his custom knife he had carried for years (shown below) for one of our D.H. Russell Canadian Belt Knives without hesitation! He was quick to affix it to his sash.

BackgroundOver 30 years' experience guiding in wilderness areas of North America including the Boundary Canoe Waters of Minnesota and Ontario, Idaho Sawtooths, North Sierras, Mt. Shasta region, Wyoming's Teton Park and Wind River country and Glacier National Park in Montana. I lived and worked at least two years in each of these areas. In Canada I have lived, taught and guided in portions of the Purcell and Rocky Mountain ranges and various drainages of the Yukon River headwaters.
For seventeen years, from 1972 until 1989, I have lived in tipis on the Kootenay Plains and in the foothills of Alberta and on Tagish Lake in the Yukon Territory.
EducationB.A., University of Minnesota. Majors in zoology and geology. Post graduate study (2 years), University of Missouri in Wildlife Management. Research publication on work at Point Barren, Alaska, 1953.
Professional Employment in Outdoor Fields
A vocation I have practiced since my youth, photography spans all the areas in which I have lived and worked and constitutes many hundreds of slides on all phases of outdoor life, scenery and seasons. They have been used as magazine cover shots to illustrate tourist booklets and adventure travel articles, and as archival records, but most often as posters for adventure equipment companies.
Lectures and Slide PresentationsSince 1967 I have given lectures and slide presentations on various aspects of wilderness life and travel to many audiences in Canada and the United States, principally to educational and outdoor groups, but also to the interested public. Presentations in the form of slide shows, lectures, weekend and week-long field trips have been given for such diverse groups as city recreation departments, university classes, Arctic research organizations, community colleges, museums, private schools, environmental groups, sports associations and diverse special interest groups.
