Re: Unboxing of Seek Outside SXL stove and Lunonite Compass

Very cool video.
Here is my Seek Outside and SXL Stove last weekend.
I have the same Ti Pot that you can see in the video. I love it. Great size for any application.

Tape/Pressure switch - yeay or nay

I recently updated my outdated Surefire 6P light with Malkoff M61 LED Conversion, that brought it into this century claiming to provide over 300lumens output. Question is, do I keep it with tail switch or add a pressure switch. Primary Arms has one that fits great: http://www.primaryarms.com/primary...

Re: Looking for reasonably priced custom sheath maker.

Hey Walker,

I have a couple of knives that I would like to makes sheaves for. They all will be pretty much same configuration.
Knife, ferro rod, maybe pouch for tinder.

One of them is Buck Vanguard.
Then, probably my Esees.

Re: CipherNameRaven's spantanious AT Solo trip

Thanks, everyone. By the way, I gotta say - Mora knives are best camping knives. I abandoned all my semi-expensive ones for these great beaters. | I need to practice starting fires with natural kindling. I tried it. But after 10 minutes, I gave up and reached for the vseline cotton balls. Also, I sc...

This is my favorite alcohol stove. I made and tested several different ones, starting from penny stove to 93cent cat food can stoves.

Re: CipherNameRaven's spantanious AT Solo trip

The thought crossed my mind. But, since it was not a survival situation, and I had plenty of food, I decided against traps.
They were the only ones that provided me with some entertainment. I had one eating bannock out of my hand, but the video came out dark and grainy.

CipherNameRaven's spantanious AT Solo trip

This was kind of a spontaneous trip. I shot this video with my phone camera. Since, I do not really like the sound of my own voice, I replaced it with subtitles and some light music by Neil Young. I don't specifically like Neil Young, but it seemed to fit. Enjoy, let me know what you think. http://w...

Guys,

Thank you very much!
@Rock6 I love that collection. They do look great. But, for utilitarian use, I definitely like your Mora mod.

@drop bear This is exactly what I was looking for! You are the man!

I am going to start on my mod this weekend.

I have many knives, such as Esee, Mora, CRKT, Gerber, etc. For camping and bushcraft I prefer Mora. It is cheap. I can abuse it and not feel bad about. If I loose it, I wont cry about it.

Re: Danner Acadia Gore-Tax, 600G Thinsulate, Made in USA

Crypto,
Good call on extra half size. My regular size and half size bigger came in today. I decided to keep the bigger size as it feels like it fits better with Thinsulate and optional thicker sock. It's a thick boot for sure.
