Survival Gear Review: DMT Diamond Sharpener

A person is only as good as the tools they use and the tools they use are only good if you take care of them.  My dad said this a lot to me when I was growing, especially if he caught me not properly taking care of a tool. The circle has come around as… Read More

Survival Gear Review: Zero Tolerance 0770CF Knife

Most who consider themselves prepared would rank the humble pocket knife as a survival essential of the highest degree.  In fact, the sharp blade often exceeds even fire and water in immediate importance.  So having a sharp edge ready to go no matter the situation means carrying a quality blade with you 24/7 or at… Read More

Survival Gear Review: Fällkniven A1 Pro

Being a restless survivalist, I find the endless pursuit of the best single knife to be both a noble one and and endless one.  Or so I thought.  The Fällkniven A1 Pro may have brought an end to my quest for the perfect survival knife, and become the life-long quest of other like minds.  Could… Read More

Survival Gear Review: Cold Steel Pocket Bushman Knife

It seems that everyone’s favorite piece of gear to carry and discuss are knives. With the variety of styles, shapes, sizes and the jobs they can perform, it is easy to see why they are a favorite piece of gear. When it comes to folding knives, I am very particular and will not carry an… Read More

Survival Gear Review: Kershaw OSO Sweet Pocket Knife

I have never owned an assisted opening pocket knife before but have always wanted one. From the outside they seemed like they would be flimsy and their action was all for show.  Most of the people I had met that brandished an assisted opening blade, were of the “mall ninja” type. I had no real… Read More

Neck Knives For The Masses

The definition of a neck knife pretty much begins and ends with it being a blade worn on a lanyard around one’s neck.  Rather than in a belt sheath, pocket, pack clipped anywhere else, the neck knife offers a deployment option and carry strategy that opens some doors especially during specific activities and positions.  Neck… Read More

12 Preps For Under $30 Bucks

I'm willing to bet that at least 90% of the people reading this article have to function under a budget of sorts.  Bills need to be paid, houses need to be heated, cars need to be maintained, stomachs need to be fed.  It's a fact of life and how we have to operate on a… Read More

Survival Gear Review: Fallkniven A2

Peter, the head of Fällkniven knives told me that a big blade can do everything a small blade can do, but a small blade cannot do everything a big blade can do.  Or thereabouts.  In theory, I agree with him. But in practice...well, that would take field testing.  Big is not a measurement, it is… Read More

Survival Gear Review: ESEE-6 Knife

ESSE knives are the real deal.  In fact, they are so darn good and in such high demand by users on the front lines that people have started trying to counterfeit them.  Let’s say up front, if you intend to shop for an ESEE knife on line in particular, buy it from a reputable dealer… Read More

Survival Gear Review: Fallkniven PC Folding Knife

Let’s cut to the chase. The point of an everyday carry (EDC) knife is to always have a sharp blade just a pocket away (sorry for the triple pun).  And with apologies to restrictive jurisdictions, the choice of an EDC knife is wide open and up the the carrier.  For me, I am an unabashed… Read More

Survival Gear Review: CRKT Redemption Knife

The CRKT Redemption knife designed by Ken Onion is one, big, knife!  The Redemption is not for carving little wooden characters out of balsa wood, or cutting up hot dogs for the kiddie table at the neighborhood barbeque.  It has one clear mission, to clear trees from the Redwood and Sequoia National Forrest and to… Read More
