Re: "1 in 4 mammals at risk of extinction"

Who knows, maybe Burt Rutan (the guy getting all the credit for SpaceShip One) will set up a colony on the moon. That's where our culture might save us. It's entirely reasonable to assume that humans will be living off-world before the next thousand years is over. There are people here, I think, wh...

Re: The best way to deal with trained attack dogs.

My first suggestion is of course, gunplay. When attacked by a dog, I used the "shove your fist into his mouth as far as you can" approach. The fist keeps his jaws apart, minimizing his bite. Then bring him down to the ground and crush the life out of his throat. Knees are good for this. Sure, I hav...

w/o power tools, any ways to give my ti-lite a scandi grind?

I was wondering if anyone knows of any ways I could give my ti-lite a nice scandi grind w/o power tools and w/o destroying the blade. And while we're at it, anyone know where I can get a small screw driver with that octagon shaped head so I can remove the pocket clip on it? I don't like it, and I wa...

Re: Cold Steel Roach Belly

I would also suggest grinding away that secondary bevel on the roach belly so that the knife has a scandi grind, it will be much sharper.

Re: Cold Steel Roach Belly

K.I.S.S. showed me a great Finnish knife made by Marttiini that is very nice. The Marttiini condor puukko, there are several other style blades in the condor line too. Has a krayton handle, cast metal ferrule guard, and they don't say much about the steel other than that it is 13% chrome and that i...

I was running through ragweedforge knife blades and found what appears to be full tang mora made from my favorite 12C27 SS hardened to 58 on the rockwell scale and it has a scandi grind! I have decided to get this instead of the lauri blade. I saw a person do thi...

Re: making knife handle

would a buttcap be necessary for a handle?

I'm sure I can do a decent job with a coping saw and sand paper after looking at it, how would I go about cutting part of the tang off so I don't have to rivet it?

Re: Trapping for food and other things..

It would be a good skill to know. It also depends where you are too and the type of trap you use, using some snare traps is considered poaching and thus highly illegal. look up azbushcraft videos, there should be a short 6 min video about trapping under T-for trapping. If you decide to actually prac...

Re: what do you think is the best suvival/attack knife

Survival/"Attack" knife? Im not sure what that is... except maybe a euphemism for some sort of "do it all" knife? In which case I lean toward some variety of modernized puukko. The Mora Craftsman, Sports and Clipper models are excellent survival knives and can safely be pressed into an offensive/de...

It may sound heartless, but I would pass him on. If it had been 4 years then that means I had made it through the rough part, and I don't plan on taking any unnecessary risks. Another reason is, if he has an AK, and has made it 4 years on his own, he will probably survive and follow the general dire...

You can also get the Cheaperthandirt.com rough use knife, its $10 and held up very well on knifetests.com, you would just have to sharpen it yourself to get a good edge.
