Re: Tactical Nylon/Gear Chat

Take a look at The Safariland ALS stuff. You can run that stuff on their MLS forks with the QLS plate attached to achieve crossdraw, and still have the option of relocating the holster to a hip if you prefer. Its a little bulkier than the Brackhonk but infinitely more durable. The SLURPA and its re...

Re: Tactical Nylon/Gear Chat

Stay away from airsoft brands (condor voodoo prisim ect) and anything on eBay from china. Blackhawk will be the least expensive and a decent quality. Is this for a military gig? Do you need a certain color? Armed escort trips as an LEO, needs to be black. What kind of set up are you looking for? (c...

I don't NEED anything else but want to be able to upgrade later if I want. It will be used when I am working armed posts, and sitting in a tr...

Re: Takedown bow from Skis!

How are you planning to put the string grooves in the ski tips? I hope your planning reinforcing them. The stronger downhill skis will be heavier poundage so you will want to reinforce the area the string loops sit so it doesn't cut into the skis. I used a round metal file to get through the metal ...

Re: Takedown bow from Skis!

http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b189/teqnikal/bowstrung_zps7c2dac4e.jpg Got the bow strung with the paracord. It will shoot, has a weight of maybe 30#-40# at somewhere around 28" ( used 28" carbon arrows from big5 rated at 30#-50#). I'm no archer as you can tell. I haven't shot a bow since the wa...

Re: Takedown bow from Skis!

Going to use paracord innards to string the bow. Right now I have 14 cords mashed together with a double endless flemmish twist (loop sting loop). It looks like it may be to thick to knock an arrow on. Twisting the cordage by hand is a huge pain, my fingers hurt. I've made the bow string about four ...

Re: Takedown bow from Skis!

Substitute the downhill skis for narrower cross country skis and you might have a winner here. Still, very interested in updates to your project.

Re: Sharpening Set - What's the best?

I got a Lansky sharpening system off of amazon for about $40. I like it well enough, put a couple of really nice edges on my knives. I like it for the simplicity.

So I was surfing the web for random stuff and happend across the instrucable for a takedown bow made from a set of skis. So I decided to give it a shot. I head out to my local thrift stores and got the skis for $10 and a big chunk of hard wood (oak maybe?) for $3. Please don't mind the sloppy woodwo...

Re: Thrift Shop find: Knives, rust removal.

Soaked them in cider vinegar for a couple hours and took some #0000 steel wool to them. Got all the rust off but left the pitting, which i think is a good look for them. Started to use the mousepad/sandpaper method to sharpen them, but I stopped because I dont like the way it takes the "V" off the b...

Re: Thrift Shop find: Knives, rust removal.

It's a high carbon steel. Surface rust is normal. Keeping them shiny will be a daily exercise that you will tire of pretty quickly. But since you're already at it... If you have a wire wheel, that will clean them up pretty quick. Scotch pads, steel wool, fine sand paper... The rust will come back t...

Re: Thrift Shop find: Knives, rust removal.

Update: Took the wraps off and scrubbed both blades with baking soda. Definitely better, but there is still a fair amount of rust that won't go away. I can post more pics if needed. Thanks in advance for your help.

Thrift Shop find: Knives, rust removal.

So I found a set of homemade blades at a thrift shop and picked them up, $25 for the pair. They are well balanced, and seem to be well made. Both need sharpening, new wraps and some TLC. I have never had to clean knives that were this... rusty? patina'd? I'm asking all the knife guys out there, how ...
