Re: multitool

I have a SOG Powerlock, the 62 I think. It doesn't matter as you can chop and change the tools within each SOG multitool range to suit , ie any Powerlock tool can fit any Powerlock handles.
You do need to watch lengths and only swap long tools for long tools.
My favourite is the V-cutter.

Re: Odd Preps: The things you can't live without

Something I guess that I rarely see others placing in their lists, but I make sure I have in my pack as a back up to my EDC is sunglasses. I am extremely light sensitive, and in bright light I have trouble seeing without sunglasses. So have a backup pair of them in my pack. Could I live without the...

Re: Give up your addiction?

My main addictions are nicotine and caffeine. I've tried to quit chewing so many times in the past, but it's hard because I've been doing it for so long. When I quit, it's like I'm not myself anymore. :( Reminds me of a conversation I once had with a long term sober alcoholic (a friend of a friend)...

I'd rather have a Clipper then a Bic https://sp.yimg.com/ib/th?id=JN.xtaVyyDUDOnr1o7DN41uxw&pid=15.1&P=0 Why?

Re: Army Blanket Jacket and Vest Prototypes

Nice bit of kit and I'd love to have one, all the little features move it from "good" to "great". I will admit I was surprised it having a cotton lining, I'd of stayed 'Natural' and used a light woollen twill or (better yet) silk. Wear points such as the elbows (and possibly the edges of the pockets...

Re: canned goods

I just thought I'd throw my bit out there.

After a lot of poking about in and under cupboards we tracked the source dow...

Re: Gas Injection Zombie Skull Hammer?

Hmm, injecting copious amounts of rapidly expanding gas inside a zombie's skull, with predictably colorful results. Totally unnecessary given that you must first pierce the creature's skull with that rather lengthy and fearsome spike. But somehow the gratuitous overkill factor of then exploding the...

2 swords vs polearm on youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eT6kUUh6WdI I feel like this isn't a very good representation though, because that is barely a pole arm. Polearms should be like 4-6 feet of staff with at least a foot of blade (My favorite the Glaive is 6 foot of pole with 2+ feet of b...
