Bucking Tradition With a Rugged Camp Knife
Outdoorsmen expect each piece of their gear to perform numerous uses, and rightly so: No backpack or saddle bag has space for dead weight. But we also know that it’s always better to have the right tool for the right job.
City Knives: Compact Urban Companions
“Take care of the ounces and the pounds will take care of themselves.” Olde Backpacker’s axiom, author unknown
It’s zero dark thirty in the morning, mid December. There’s 6”+ of snow on the deck and the snow is still falling at around an inch an hour. I’m working and out slugging through the snow. It’ll be an hour or so before the plows get out. I’m cold, wet, and becoming more tired with every step I take. The knees and back are aching. Now done with the neighborhood I’m in, I head back to the truck to patrol the next neighborhood. As the truck starts, the radio fires up. The ad currently playing on the talk radio station is saying that, “… for every extra pound you’re carrying, it adds 4 ft lbs of pressure to the joints as you walk…” Great timing.
Smith and Wesson MP7 Tactical CREE LED Flashlight
I've said this before in previous articles, but I'll say it again – I love flashlights! Maybe it comes from growing up as a kid and enjoying dark evenings on the back porch with my family. Often I fell asleep on the porch swing, a baseball game playing on the radio and the sounds of the wind in the trees. I guess that's why I grew up to enjoy being alone in the woods at night. Still, it's good to have a trusty light source for when you get turned around or have to head back in time for a late supper. Now that I'm older and have children of my own, priorities are different, and I don't often get to indulge in the pastimes of my youth (and the thought of my kids wandering in the woods at night alone makes for a different response in this over-protective parent).
Boker K-Bit Review
I recently had the opportunity to test and evaluate the Boker K-Bit. It is a small karambit style fixed blade. It is a Boker collaboration design with Newton Martin. The way it is shaped, packaged, and colored someone might assume it is designed specifically for tactical and/or defensive uses. While it certainly could serve in such a function, I found that looking at the knife from a perspective of the day to day utility serves a better purpose for the end user.
