Re: Nunchaku OK or Not (Vid)

I spent many, many years (about 25, give or take) praticing with the nunchaku. While most kids were kicking around a football, I was learning the latest double handed technique. I've taught hundreds of classes, performed countless exhibitions with single chuks, double chuks, blindfolded. I've broken...

Re: Water and diesel shelf life.

You've confirmed what I suspected. Thanks for the help. Concerning the water- My chlorine tablets state 1 tab to 1 litre of "almost clear" water. I'm presuming that, what with tap water having already been through a treatment process, I can use a lot less to keep it potable for stretch. Would this b...

Water and diesel shelf life.

From what I know (but I'm prepared to be corrected) the best bet concerning the aftermath of a nuclear strike is to stay indoors for a minimum of two weeks after the event (in a nutshell.) Obviously the stockpiling of water would be one of the first priorities once the alarm had been sounded so my q...

interesting. though the knife you posted is simular it is different than the one i have. the one i have is also etched by anza, and the one i have is slightly different on both sides which to me shows it was hand made. i would think even the cheap imports would be made on a machine so they can make...

Re: Cold Steel Mini Tac Kiridashi

I think maybe the shape of the handle will force your hand into a position that's uncomfortable for small detail and delicate work. Although that point looks like it could carve pimples on a gnat. Mmm...pointy... :twisted: Maybe something with a plainer, but more versatile handle would be better for...

Re: Jeep Rescue Axe

So does anyone have any recommendations as how I should test it? For starters I'd grind off that un-axe-like hollow grind and put a convex grind on it. Then I'd probably spend a minute or two wondering why I bothered, before finally breaking out the 3 1/2lb lump hammer. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

A good temper is a wonderful thing. 'Nuff said. Wonderful and surprising. That's why a decent temper can see a blade being bent through 90 degrees without taking a set, and why it can see a blade cut through a whole bunch of wood, rope, military vehicles, etc and still be shaving sharp at the end o...

Obviously there are different types of stainless steel, just as there're different types of most things but I'd say the original purchase price is a fair indicator of quality.
