    I am trying to decide which knife I want. Which I'll use for heavy duty work such as hacking branches and possibly a solid pummel suitable for hammering/smashing glass etc. Cutting rope (serrated needed) Also possibly a handle with glass. You know the ones that are electronically isolated so...

    Been looking at buying a new knife, and my mind keeps going to a Damascus knife I used to own and miss. While I want something a bit larger than a Kershaw Scallion, I do want to stick with Damascus. What are everyone's favorite Damascus patterns? I added a sample pic I found for reference...

    I have a 50 gallon steel drum for kerosene storage. I have an extra long plastic siphon pump, but I'd like to get something that I can leave in the drum all the time, works a lot better/faster, doesn't leak, and won't expose my K1 to air/moisture when I'm not using it. I've read reviews on a lot...

    Fairly new gun, haven't had any problems with it, prob only 200-250 rounds through it. Have the SR40 as well, but am slowly moving to a 9mm platform. I now CC the SR9c, instead of a Shield in .40 I don't really care about the cosmetics as much, however, i do like the look of the steel rod...

    I would like to introduce you to a new stainless steel 32oz bottle that I feel is an inexpensive, more universal alternative to bottles like Pathfinder, Klean Kanteen, Guyot, and CanteenShop. The biggest difference with our bottle is our lid is not proprietary; it's a standard 63mm that will fit...

    Hello all! I was at a flea market the other day and came across this, a vintage jerry can from the USMC. It was marked for water and manufactured by Conco, as best as I can tell. I'm not sure of the metal used, but it doesn't appear to be stainless steel. I started the cleaning by taking a...

    Hi All So I was wondering if anyone here has any suggestions for a good (and hopefully cheap) gasoline pump for a 55 gallon fuel drum. Given my land, my best option for storing some fuel was a 55 gallon steel drum, which I got for free. (I also have some propane, but don't have enough land to...

    Just curious with all the wonder blades out there being made out of alien steels if Good Old Fashioned 1095 will ever be phased out of the knife making process? What do you guys think? Personally its my favorite, and the tradeoffs seem worth it.

    Well it's certainly something: The slug round, while not the most accurate, certainly cuts through steel like it's butter... The range I'm shooting the Benelli M1 S90. Often I hear of the .50 cal as the king of engine-destroying rounds. I'm thinking the slug might just rival it....

    I'm hoping this thread really takes off, because I would like to discuss blacksmithing with others who might be interested on this forum, whether you're an expert, novice or are just interested. In my opinion, blacksmithing is going to be one of the prime skills in a post EOTWAWKI world. It...

    Hi everyone, My name is Sam. I look forward to meeting you all over the coming weeks, months and years. I've had an interest in knives and survival for as long as I can remember. So I started collecting knives and have been for about a year or more now. UP TO 39 NOW! Can't put my finger on what...

    I am tempted to purchase one but I am curios about their quality in terms of utility and fighting wise. I first though A k-bar would work but they are made of a soft metal that doesn't hold a edge worth anything. So I put a final edge on it and put it on my altar (intended purpose from the...

    Anyone offer any insight to the M1 and how it offers protection. I found a mint condition M1 genuine helmet and plastic inner helmet in my garage today. Useful for post SHTF and TEOTWAKI? Would helmets be a good idea? Your suggestions and advice please :D thankyou in advance :)
  20. Knives, Swords & Axes
    I love knives. I've always been a fan of stainless steel knives and I've always hated hard to open folders. I bought a stainless steel kitchen knife a few years ago. I sharpened it to a razors edge. (440 stainless I'm guessing.) It was maybe a $30 knife. I only cut soft stuff - meat, fruit...
