    While attending the 2018 SHOT Show I dropped by the Victorinox / Swiss Army booth and a nice lady there talked about some of their new products. Swiss Army is getting into the multi-tool market, which is something they are not know for. Improvements to certain knives. Cutting boards made...

    Was checking EBay for some folding pocket knives when I came across several postings for multiple folding knives by a seller who states they were seized by TSA. I always thought ALL items seized by TSA were destroyed, or am I wrong? So....if these prohibited carry on items are being sold, what...

    Here's an uplifting story about a vet who saved the day: Illinois Army vet, 75, saves 16 kids from knife-wielding teen reportedly plotting mass murder | Fox News Interesting how this story has brought no calls for banning hunting knives or preventing mentally ill people from owning knives.

    One of the great topics in the survivalist / prepping community is about survival knives. Everyone has an opinion about what kind of knife would be ideal for surviving in a post-SHTF / post-TEOTWAWKI world. Some of the discussions on knives revolve around real world situations, while a lot of...

    This isn't about a complete SHTF, EOTWAWKI, EMP, WROL, zombie apocalypse, 'the sky is falling' moment. This is about what you carry when you head into the field for a bit of recreational hiking, hunting, fishing, camping, bushcrafting and so on. We all know, or at least I hope we all know...

    As a prepper, I have been called a hoarder and that I go overboard on almost everything. My latest "thing" seems to be knives. I have somewhere in the vicinity of 15-20 pocket and fixed blade knives. Some may say that it is no big deal, and others might say I am overboard. My sons in fact have...

    I have read countless articles and websites about the best guns, weapons, etc to keep around and was wondering what other everyone else really thinks not just a set list made by someone on the internet. I would enjoy recommendations to research and possibly try. also, accessories for the...

    Has anyone used a real good wide wet stone or oil stone for sharpening knives? I have some hunting and boning knives that are going to need attention. Im not for sure about brands or coarseness. A drop on the floor and mine became several smaller ones. Had it most of my life and cant remember...
  15. Urban Survival
    I've been pretty lucky in life to not be exposed to much if any criminal activity. Someone tried to steal my parents car ages ago but that's it. Unfortunately, urban survival is on my mind a bit more tonight as last night a neighbor was attacked in a unit, right next door to mine, by some...

Not until about a few months ago did I take everything for granted and think life was perfect until my mother the only one who...

    My definition of a Bushcraft knife holds more in the activity it can perform more so than its looks, though blade and handle shape have everything to do with this. It has to be able to process small game, birds, fish, snakes, and reptiles Has to be able to carve simple items and tools (i.e...
