Re: General Fitness Discussion thread

So far I'm down 15 pounds since I started a month ago. 85 more to go and then I re-evaluate what has been working and not and go from there to get me down to 200 lbs. My starting stats: 345 lbs. 49.4% BMI All stats good except resting heart rate was at the upper limit of "OK" and my sugars were righ...

Re: Thrift Shop finds

Nothing... absolutely nuthin'. :lol: Did I ever tell you guys about the cross-dresser shoes I found once? It was before my wedding last year and I went to go hit-up all the thrift stores in PDX for some good dress shoes for my wedding. I took my 11 year old step-daughter with me. Daddy-Daughter day!...

Whoa, missed this one as it was posted while I was sick for about 5 days a few weeks ago. Nice, I love the simplicity of this style. My first bow I made is a lot like that one in style, yours is about +100 times prettier though. Good job. Mine started off as a 6' long piece of red oak from a trash/r...

Re: Wouldn't a Kukri be pretty effective?

I dispute that 100%. I guess that's what I'm curious about. For me, disputing a claim implies having evidence to the contrary. The LACK of evidence of something, while it gives reason to doubt, doesn't give grounds for affirming the contrapositive. Sort of like when I can't find my car in the mall ...

Re: Wouldn't a Kukri be pretty effective?

The kukuri is of course a very effective weapon and tool, and its uses in zombie combat are pretty obvious. With one slash, a good kukuri will decapitate a zombie with practically no effort. << Not sure that is true, actually quite positive that is not true. Not to mention that outide of combat it ...

Re: Mutlitool Suggestions Please

You can't go wrong with a Wave or Surge as a common-man's tool. If you want something lighter (like I did) the Juice line has plenty of choices. I have cut chicken wire (and finishing nails and coat hangers) with my litte Juice and it works great.

I have both. The stove is too wide, as Twisted posted above, the dimensions are off.

Esbit and fuel tabs then, very small space needed in a bag. If your conditions are right will boil up 2 cups of water in about 10 minutes. Make sure your boiling container is compatible with the Esbit stove.

Re: Seeking help sourcing a SA dagger WO mottos or iconograp

What you are looking for is a "Swiss Dagger". If you use that search term you will find a ton of them. Boker makes one that I've seen for about $250. I really like the style myself.
