  2. General Discussion
    So I came across this article on reddit the other day and the guy seemed to make some valid points, but in the comment section, a debate raged on whether you should even bother with a machete at all. Original article: http://www.expertprepper.com/choosing_machete_bugout_bag/ Reddit Debate...

  5. Knives, Swords & Axes
    Now that I'm more experienced with my blades, I've been thinking about what I'd really need in a survival knife. The thing that I'd see myself using it for most would be for fire & shelter building. When I've used my ESEE-6, I've looked at stuff I'd want to tackle (like chopping down small...
  6. Blade Reviews, Articles and Videos
    I did a review of the Cold Steel Gladius machete, I imagine you've all seen reviews for it before but I thought I'd make a review anyway as there are some flaws with it I've found such as the blade being over-sharpened. http://youtu.be/auYGrFhHF7g Also apologies if I don't use lots of sword...

    I was bored today so I picked up a mill bastard file, whipped out the Lanskey Puck and my Smith Pocket Pal and picked up everything in my attic that I could work with. I sharpened the blades on my $8. Harbor Freight Survival Knife, put a nice edge on my Ontario Military Sawback Machete...

    Here are the next purchases I plan to make. Instead of buying 1 ESEE small blade, I decided to buy 3 more knives in one shot. 1 small blade + 2 more 5"+ blades. I'll save the high quality small knife purchase for my next round. I'd appreciate any input in my budding collection. Phase I...

    Already saw the thread on machetes but no one mentioned anything that I'm really looking for. I'm trying to find a good THICK sawback machete that will last forever, at least 16 inches long. I don't want one that will whip around, I need something heavy and very sturdy. Anyone know of something...

    One topic that doesn't seem to be very well covered is a kukri vs machete. My local surplus store has a sale on "bladed weapons" and i noticed a ontario kukri. I love their sp line and this is no different. It feels great and the handle is leaps and bounds over my ontario machete (which i love...

    well, this has been done before for sure. This is one of those things you have to decide for your BOB if it is more than a 72hr bag. Whats it gonna be. Axe for me. Hands down. When I did my BOB camping test a couple weeks ago, my friend and I both brought our machetes. I cannot explain...

    Ok guys and gals, I use machetes to cut down pampas grass and brambles that sometimes get out of control in my garden - my previous machete I hit a piece of metal that was stuck in the ground as I was cutting through the bramble - didn't see the metal and gouged a big tear in the blade. Okay...

    First off, sorry if this subject has been beat to death, but I can't get the search function to work well for me, so I didn't really find anything on it. I had one of those "duh" moments last night. I was watching the newest episode of Dual Survival and I noticed dave canterbury was carrying a...

    So, my $5 Walmart machete got a decent sized chip in it while doing some chopping. At first it wouldn't chop that well, so I tried sharpening it (had some trouble on the curve, is there a better method for it. I use a handheld carbide/? sharpener), and when I went to chop again, it chipped along...

    So, I am looking for a good sized knife for splitting larger logs. I don't mean logs so large, that an axe is required, but some good sized ones. I was looking at the following 3 knives. http://www.knifecenter.com/kc_new/store_detail.html?s=KS1079...

    Anyone ever used a SOG brand? Debating between that and Cold Steel Kukri.

    Here recently, I decided it was high time to put together the perfect B.O.B. Most of the contents in my B.O.B. are multi purpose. And then I decided that I might need a bigger chopping tool than my fixed blade knife. As a kid I guess I seen alot of Vietnam movies and I liked those machetes for...

    Being limited to basically a 8x9x3 closet, I don't have a whole lot of room for preps. I've organized my stuff literally a dozen or so times to get maximum room capabilities. I just finished organizing everything in there again and must say I'm quiet pleased. :D: Anyone else limited like this...
