Re: New Folder

I still want to get the Tenacious... with the green, and blue grip scales variations... because they look neat. It would be a little beefier than my Cara Cara 2, and still fit local ordinance. If Spyderco would make the Resilience with variations...I'd be looking at those as well. Already have more ...

New Folder

So, I got myself a new shiny. My second product from them, and I am rather thrilled with it. The gateway drug was a Byrd Cara Cara2 w/ FRN handle.. which I really enjoy, and carry pretty much every day. It's got a decent blade profile, sharp, decent steel. It's light, and juuuust passes my city's le...

A Little Tomahawk/Big Knife Love.

So, I recently got myself an Ontario SP10 Bowie, and the other payday, I snagged a Cold Steel Pipehawk. I have been doing a lot of reading regarding Bowies, and have picked up both the Kirchner book, and the MacLemore book on Bowie and Big Knife. I also have as an e-book his "Fighting Tomahawk," but...

Re: Musing Over Edged Tools.

Yeah that camp 18" looks like a brute. I saw Stormcrow's review of it. It is on the wishlist, but behind a few other things. I'm tight this payday, because it is the check where the bulk of my bills hit... but I managed to order myself a Cold Steel Pipehawk. I like the bit on it, with the combined h...

Re: MEGA POUNDER BOWIE 7.5"

Bowies are the shit.

I'd argue that 7.5" is a little small for a Bowie... but... nah... that's a hell of a score! :awesome:

Re: Musing Over Edged Tools.

Got it in a couple days ago, and it's a monster of a knife. Pretty much a 1/4" spine, and it pops hairs out of the box...which is something I didn't expect. It doesn't feel like it is that sharp, but it apparently is. A little time with a stone/hone/sharpener or whatever, and it could be scary. It's...

Re: Musing Over Edged Tools.

Forgive me hive mind, for I have sinned. I have given into temptation. I ordered an Ontario SP10 Bowie this morning. Tag some reviews, watched some videos...looked at the price like 4 times...and gave in. Lol.

Re: Musing Over Edged Tools.

I suppose it is also worth a mention that I like the look of the Ontario Spec Plus Marine Raider Bowie. It's a big honking knife that looks like it can take some use. Reviews state that it is full tang under the Krayton handle. Twice the price of the Bushman... is it twice the knife? I have an inter...

Musing Over Edged Tools.

Ok. So. I got the itch for some bladed goodness. Budget not huge, but also, not looking for super fancy. Looking for user tools. There are bigger, badder pieces I want, but those are wishlisted for a reason... nice, but not necessary at this point in time. Currently musing over the Cold Steel Bushma...

Re: BOB for Critical Review.

Well, I nixed about half a pound by pulling out the micro towel, one (out of two) energy gels, one drink mix packet (out of two), the Gerber Shard, and the Gerber mini-multitool. I have a hard time justifying pulling out the OHT. It's a nice knife, and the tweezers are much better than what is in my...

Ways that I was thinking of getting more food in lightweight: Protein powder. I already replace 1-2 meals a day with bars and powder.

VB Cord? I have not heard of this. Now I need to Google. Another member mentioned the Sea to Summit Poncho tarp; research needed now. The "optionals not weighed" are items that I CAN add to the kit, but do not live in the main bag. The camp axe lives in my car. The MSS hangs close to ready for grab ...

BOB for Critical Review.

So, after doing some chit chatting on a thread I started about stuff to possibly remove and upgrade... I know it has been a long time since I shared my BOB build. I am looking for a fairly critical review of what is present. I am not in the best physical shape, so light is good. I am also fairly han...

Re: Thinking of Removing/Changing Items in BOB.

It's pretty basic. Haven't done an impromptu run with it in a few years. This was back before I deemed my homemade Tyvek tarp to not be durable enough.

Re: Thinking of Removing/Changing Items in BOB.

So far, I've tried to be critical of what I carry. I've read a bit on ultralight camping and what not, took tips from that. I think I have tonight's after work project lined up.

Yes, eliminating the need for hot water could eliminate the need for the cooking utensil. however, it's just a canteen cup and stove (with ESBiT and Trioxane cubes...which can double as tinder... actually pieces as part of my fire kit). They aren't much weight anyway, and if I somehow ran myself out...

Re: Mosin vs. Enfield vs. Mauser--which and why?

Tough argument. Get a Mosin because it should still be cheap to feed, and it's accurate enough with a little tweaking. Or, Spend some more money, and get a Finn M39, because those are a different breed all together, and worth it. Get a Mauser flavor because there's nothing else like them in terms of...
