    More Predator

    Predator, fitting name for this tank buster. This beast looks like it could chew through just about anything. Perfect timing for posting up a stellar knife build from a Veteran. Looks phenomenal Kyle! MCH

    Davie Boultinghouse Bowie

    This is a huge collector's Bowie I purchased on an auction site from Bernard Levine. Made by Davie Boultinghouse in 1990 with a hand made sheath by me. Made from 3/8" 440C with cowbone handle scales and bird's eye pins. I'll send it to you for $400. If anyone is interested send me a personal...

    Survival Kit

    I AGREE with you sir, respectfully! Survival Sticky is a great idea. I've eaten some stuff in the past that could make a Billy Goat puke! (Kiddin') Try some survival cake that is available...Calories mean body heat, but they are NASTY!

    Survival Kit

    Like most of the country in the recent past the weather has been and is wicked cold. In a dead of winter emergency survival situation things can go BAD very quickly. Preachin' to the choir ain't I??? I carry some clothing and equipment that will keep me warm to 50 below, down pants, jacket...

    Stupid People = Agressive Pet

    This is a tough subject and Mr. Fendley is right. I have been nailed twice on the job, once by a Great Dane and the other a Blue Heeler. The Dane backed off with a good shot to the end of the nose the Blue bites I needed stitches, he got brained by a shovel. My point is any dog will protect...

    Kydex Press Question

    I am looking for advise on this subject as well. Has anyone tried to use kydex over leather? My thought is to cut into the kydex and use it as a sort of overlay to the leather. This will be for a Bowie, 12" x 3 1/2" x 1/4" blade. I think it may work if I make a rough leather sheath then wrap the...

    Survival Knife Chopper??

    LOL, so I need to have my leather inlay in the ready for the kydex wrap, goes without saying I guess, would I make the "skeleton" cuts before heating? Again, a thousand pardons for...?

    Survival Knife Chopper??

    :confused2: This is a new one for my collection and field duty which has not made it home yet. I thought it may be a consideration for the "Survival Kit" thread you've had going. It's 5160, 12" blade x 3 1/2" x 1/4". Black linen micarta handle scales, 1 of 10 in the world, or so I'm told...

    Where to get leather and a few other questions

    Would you please explain to a dummy like me what you mean by double shoulders? Also, to buy from Wicket and Craig do you need to be a dealer?

    Survival Kit

    Solar and atomic, can't go wrong with that. I don't use a hand held GPS, only a good quality liquid compass and a topographic map when in the back country. I usually check my compass declination by sighting a target on a long straight stretch of road and turning 180 for interpilation. I'd like...

    Survival Kit

    Great start with a ruck, Brunton pocket transit is a very good compass, it can be mounted on a walking staff, as is a Suunto that has a compass and inclinometer to determine slope steepness.
