  1. Knives, Swords & Axes
    I was wondering if anyone here has a suggestion as to where you can find the original design ka-bar fighting knife for the best price. I've done some searching but I was thinking some of you might have a reputable site or source you use.
  2. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    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...

    I got real lucky. Like I did with my MSS set, I managed to get in on the bidding of an ILBE at the last minute in the wee hours of the morning and scored this one in new condition with a new lid, no stains, no tears, no wear, no names written on it. It's in absolutely great condition in/out...

  7. Reviews & Questions For Vendors
    This is the Marine Corps fifth pack since 1999 when we were first issued the crappy MOLLE I. But, it looks gorgeous. The only issue I can see with it is the assault pack straps and backing. It looks like it could afford to be a little more substantial. I'd like to get some reviews or...
  8. Knives, Swords & Axes
    I very recently purchased a TOPS/Szabo USMC fighting knife. This knife is a large 8 inches and has a lot of heft to it. Upon inspecting it I observed that it is of high quality and can easily double duty as a survival knife. When I say this knife is solid, it is one of the most solid I have ever...

    I may be a retired squid but I gotta give due credit to the Corps. I encourage anyone visiting the DC area to take a trip south on I-95 to Quantico and visit this great Museum. I decided one day to play hookie during lunch and check it out. Very informative. The diaramas are fantastic and...
