Sharpie: Hot Tip

Sharpie Paint Pen. It's somewhat similar to a Dalo marker, but it's a felt tip so it's a little more controllable. Comes in a pack of five colors for eight bucks. So far I'm happy with these for a technical/industrial environment. The Sharpie Metallic Pens aren't very good unless you're a teenage gi...

Spydie Across the Pond? In the movies?

I'm afraid that admitting this in public might label me a weirdo, but I'm a fan of the British television series "The End of the F***ing World." So please don't tell anyone, lest you ruin my reputation as being somewhat normal. If you're not familiar, you can see both seasons of the series on Netfli...

The people who developed thalidomide weren't worried about side effects either, and look how that turned out.

That's quite a solid argument in support of your position...
if anyone could figure out whatever point you're trying to make.

Re: 5G? What's The Deal?

First off just want to let you all know I'm not an electronics buff at all. Just to let you know, I'm somewhat of an electronics expert. All the people that I've seen who are running around in circles flapping their hands in the air over 5G are not. I'm not wigging out about this, and I would sugge...

Again, thanks for looking and the kind words. Maybe I’ll keep this thread updated as I go along.
By all means, do.
My heat treating consists of heating to cherry red and an oil quench.
Grinders are limited to a bunch of angle grinders and bench grinders.

Re: Liquid Cobra is making some knives..

Hi forum folks. I haven’t been as active on this forum as of late because I’ve been busy trying to learn how to make my own knives. I’ve made 3 so far and I thought I would share them here for anyone interested. Honestly, it is a very fun hobby that I find incredibly rewarding. Very nice, LC. How d...

Re: Please Help Me Buy a Flashlight!

I would like something that would make a great light camping/hiking light, preferably with a blue or red filter option to help with night vision. Reliability and battery life are more important to me than a super lumen tactical light. Like DSH was saying, a headlamp is the way to go. While hiking, ...

Re: P'Kal vs. Yojimbo vs. Chinook

I'm considering either the P'kal, the Yojimbo 2, or the Chinook 2. Any opinions on which of these is the better self defense knife? Well... I'll share my thoughts on each. The Chinook 2 wouldn't be my first choice because the exaggerated curve at the tip might diminish thrusting ability. It seems t...

I received a Wolfspyder in the post yesterday, so spent the evening roughing out a serving spoon type thing.
Ok, that's pretty cool. Most of my carving is putting a tiny screwdriver tip on a bamboo chopstick for adjustment of computer circuits. Clearly, I need to step it up.

Re: Bottle Openers

Bottle openers are cool, but I don't drink so many beers that I want to carry one around with me all the time. I like my knife to be a knife, and don't want it cluttered up with extra gizmos. How can I open my beer using whatever tools are normally at my disposal? This is a variant of an old rock cl...

Because some people like nice things. The additional cost of a nice stove, washing machine, car, knife, or cutting board might not be prohibitive to a particular segment of the population.

Found An Old Friend - Polishing for my amusement

A couple weeks ago I rediscovered an old knife that got stashed away and forgotten. It travelled on some pretty big adventures 30+ years ago and finding it brought back a lot of memories. I always enjoyed using that knife, which is probably why I kept it. I quickly put a new edge on it, and started ...
