    I could see this one displacing my M4 Manix2 for EDC. stainless, high wear, lighter weight - what's not to love? And if I somehow manage to abuse it to the point of breaking the handle, I will reuse...

    If you are walking into burning buildings or planning to be in the woods on a regular basis, you can probably get away with carrying fixed blades. One can build a fire, btw, without batoning a knife...

    That's a pretty cool way to handle it. Of course, a self-feeding gunpowder-based fuse would probably work better and more safely, so long as you have some kind of self-extinguish mechanism. Making a...

    My understanding is that H1 will undergo a good deal of deformation when ground, requiring grinding on the other side to bring the steel back true. This is why it is not plausible to FFG en masse in...

    Early flamethrowers, before they started using gelling agents and well-tested flame guards, were basically pressurized air + gasoline or similar. They worked okay until the tank heated up too much or...

    Gunpowder doesn't work wet, so you would end up with a bunch of additives increasing corrosioj as already said. I have toyed with the idea of gunpowder as a propellant, but I think it would be...

    Some SD folks might consider a byrd ideal in that it is inexpensive, gets scary sharp easily, and still functions in a congruent fashion to :spyder: models.

    Current guitar tech tools are kind of gimpy. I've been brainstorming on a guitar tool that would perform every function of most common guitar tools, only a little bit better. Could call it a songbird.

    I'm still carrying (and often breaking) inexpensive lights. I've settled on an Eveready (might be rebranded) that has three pretty bright LEDs (thinking 50-70 lumens) and takes three AAAs. Might have...
