Re: World War Z One thumb up.

Saw it and thought it was good. I recommend people spend some money and see it. Not horrible in any way, though not my favorite movie either. It was fun and I enjoyed it.

Re: DeWalt Sidestrike Chisel as camping knife/tool?

The yellow accents would make it fairly easy to find if dropped in the field however. The older I get and the more time I spend out in the woods and doing work and even doing some disaster responder/volunteer training and in real life stuff... the more I like to be able to find the crap I drop on t...

Re: DeWalt Sidestrike Chisel as camping knife/tool?

My problem with chisel ground knives, for batoning or chopping, is that the line of force and the cutting edge never line up, and you end up with a curving cut. You also can only chop at something from one angle. When I was doing knife making I experimented with them, and never could stand it. Abso...

Re: DeWalt Sidestrike Chisel as camping knife/tool?

I'm looking at it from the what it can't do perspective. It 's designed as a small demo tool, and having done some home demo before I can see how it could be used. Would've been quite handy for some applications. In a camp tool what I look for is ability to do light cutting tasks but be ready for so...
