Securing a mushroom knife
A way to keep the knife always within reach when mushroom hunting

Sometimes I go into the woods with a basket and mushroom knife to gather mushrooms. During the search, it is quite impractical to keep the knife loosely inside the basket together with the mushrooms: Firstly, it becomes more and more difficult to find the knife among all the mushrooms, and secondly, the risk of unintentionally reaching for the knife’s blade increases and that can certainly spoil the fun.
I was able to find a good solution using a piece of leather and one of your magnets.
- a piece of leather (I used sheepskin)
- a block magnet type Q-19-13-06-N
- a piece of strong sewing thread
- a large needle
- an awl (for scoring)
- a boxcutter
- a fine-tipped marker
- a ruler
