Re: Explosions at Boston Marathon

I know there is some back and forth with some who think the bomber is some disgruntled American nutcase vs a Middle Eastern sponsored terrorist attack. There is still a lot of evidence to sort thru, and the verdict is not in, but I want to throw out some evidence that leads me to believe this was a...

Re: Bahco wrecking knives- Mora's on steroids

I was actually gonna be putting in an order for a few more moras in the next couple of days, but these have really grabbed my attention. Hultafors also make a chisel knife, but it looks to be more Mora like in thickness (I haven't got one): http://www.hultafors.com/products/cutting/knives/craftsman...

Round about $35 for the straight one to $45 for the curved (incl p&p). I got one in Australia and one from the UK.

It just peeled the wood off, which makes me think it would be good for bushcraft.
The good thing about it being a 'tool' rather than a safe queen is you have no qualms using it.

Bahco wrecking knives- Mora's on steroids

Awhile ago I was looking at Scandi tool company sites to see what they sell besides Moras. Saw Bahco makes wrecking knives in two versions, one straight like a chisel, and the other curved. So I bought both. http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8113/8653707891_2c9c12d94d.jpg Two wrecking knives, Mora, Hult...

Re: Training weapons

That axe gang trainer is a bit chunkier in the handle than a tomahawk but still usable (especially with hockey grip tape on it).
In the 2013 releases there's a trenchhawk trainer too:

Re: Deadly H7N9 Bird Flu Outbreak in China

It's already becoming a pain in the ass though- we got a notice (at the hospital I work at here in Australia) that ED is going to treat anyone with flu like symptoms who's been to China recently as if they have it, until tests come back. Which means lots of gowns and gloves and masks and cleaning an...

Re: Greetings from Australia

You're way ahead of most Aussies and the golden horde with your gun licence. Long arms are fine for PAW home defense. You just need to have plenty of ammo, and get into reloading your own ammo. There's no need for a crossbow or handgun. But you're not going to survive a PAW with just the two of you....

Re: Survival Spear lashing suggestions?

Yeah, kitchen knives are some of the most practical, general purpose knives going. But a lot of their design features just aren't "cool", like modified wharncliffe blades and unsexy handle shapes.

A tack could be better in that you wouldn't have to improvise a screwdriver/use the companion knife's edge, but it would be a pain to take out.

Re: Need a good knife

Looking at it from a 'what do you get with this new tool' perspective, it would make sense to get a hawk/axe first. As you get a new set of capabilities. Getting a new knife isn't going to give you a lot more than what your current Esee 3 can do. Re knives your problem is that your Esee 3 already ca...
