Re: Stainless bushcraft-type knife

You may want to consider a semi stainless tool steel, like D2. Or possibly a high quality laminated stainless blade like those made from Fallkniven or Cold Steel.

Re: Help Me Pick a Bill Hook

As much as I like Condor's blades and products, the Woodsman's pal has a very well mantained reputation. Though I wouldn't call it a billhook in the strictest sense, more of a modified cane knife. I had a Fiskars billhook for awhile (sold as their brush axe) which I liked just fine for the price. I ...

Re: What's your effective range?

Until our local public range ran into some issues last year, they only allowed for paper targets out to 200 yards, and steel targets out to about 450 yards. I actually don't do much shooting with magnified optics anymore. I'll zero scopes in, group different ammos, and make sure everything is all an...

Re: CRKT ChanceInHell machete review

Thats quite a bummer about that Kershaw. Ive had one in my shopping cart on amazon for awhile now. Ive also been eyeing out that Schrade bolo as well... not that I actually need any more big blades though. I have piles of them that Ive accumulated over the years, and I still go back to using the sam...

Re: CRKT ChanceInHell machete review

I remember that review, and have had a chance to handle a couple of those Kershaw camp blades (which I really liked!). But the big difference between those blades, and this one, is the thickness. A little under 1/8" vs 3/16" doesnt sound like much, but in my experience definitely changes the intende...

CRKT ChanceInHell machete review

As what has become a bit of an unofficial Christmas tradition between my Father and I, we always seem to get each other a new knife for Christmas (as well as one of the same for ourselves... so neither of us has something cooler than the other). This year, while I got him a Thai style chef's knife o...

I'd have to go with a .32acp, out of a respectable platform, shooting solids.

No, you're a tool and therefore anything in your possession is to be considered as dangerous as a weapon.
Sorry, just too good a setup to pass it up.

Re: My first gun review: Armscor m200 38 special

I've been curious about their revolvers for awhile, as I'm a big fan of the original designs, and the price point. The biggest complaint most people have about RIA guns, is the finish on them. Personally, I think that for the price, its a great deal. My Dad has a RIA double stack 9mm 1911 that has n...

Re: How Effective is the Machete as a Weapon?

I have a couple of those barong machetes. IMO, they make a good faux sword, but a pretty lousy machete. And that is coming from someone who is half Filipino, and has been doing FMA off and on since I was a kid.

Re: Game of Thrones HBO; All Seasons with Spoilers

They have also cast someone as Euron Greyjoy, so we will finally be seeing the return of the Iron Islands as part of the plot. If anyone has read the books, especially the posted chapters of The Winds of Winter, you know that the part they play can be pivotal.

Re: Tobacco and the Apocalypse

I agree there is absolutely some degree of hypocrisy. The ideal end game plan would be to stop smoking altogether. But for now, it's one of my few vices. Since it is something I do in my day to day life, I figure its worth thinking about for inconvenience sake. It doesn't have to be an end of the wo...

Re: Disposable Lighters. The Big Lie?

Often times I use the "bic trick" to open my bottles. It'll dig gouges into the end of the lighter, but I've never had one break or crack yet. I've busted open those cheap see thru disposable ones before though.

Just resurrecting this old thread because I've been reevaluating my tobacco preps for both the short and long term. I'm somewhat of a medium smoker (with occasional heavy days). Usually during a day I'll smoke from store bought packs if I'm out in public, roll your own tobacco at home, and I'll smok...

Re: Disposable Lighters. The Big Lie?

Bics are without a doubt the gold standard in disposable lighters. I always buy 5 or 10 at a time, and stash them anywhere or everywhere I might need a lighter. Every junk drawer, glove box, backpack etc... I've seen them last for years if used infrequently. The only time I've ever struggled lightin...
