Going camping, carrying a Condor Golok with a sheath I made for a "Large" knife/small machete, a Kabar with a kydex sheath and rubber handle, a gerber multi-tool, and a Fiskars medium size Axe...

I think I got blades covered.

All of those will help start fires, build shelters, a silent protection, and feed me if all else fails.

I think you do have the edged weapons well covered. But I do suggest you might oughta think about grounding yourself if'n it comes a lightning storm. All that metal...... :hysterical:

I don't think it's a good idea to put that online. WHO KNOWS who's checking? I love big-caliber and longe-range rifles and 1911 pistols, and I've got a few.

I can always use another 1911.

True! With the blades, bullets, and barrels? Yeah, I'm pretty much "Iron man".

I just replaced the Gerber multi with a Leatherman Wave... Got it from The Woman for Christmas.

I have a Cold Steel Recon Scout, but by GAWD that thing weighs a TON!

All
I have been making knives for the past year or so and I have been getting a lot or orders for them since Christmas so I thought I would share the link to my page on Facebook for you all to look at. I have been making all of my own leather sheaths as well for my knives as I have found that buying someone else's sheaths do not fit my knives like they should.

Here is the latest on that I have finished it is a Patch Knife that will go with me next Black Powder season with my Hawkins .50 cal.

Image

And I made these two before Christmas that were given as gifts to 2 lucky hunters

Here is a link to my knife page please visit and Like and if you see something or you want something made just give me a PM and we will see what we can do.

Am a big fan of Mora (of Sweden). Great knives at a modest price. Sharp right of the box.
Have several in the BOBs, cars, and range bag. Have about a dozen of them in total and not a one has had a single problem. The price is modest and easier to afford than a single "benchmade" knife.

I keep a Mora in my camp box for kitchen duty. It is also my back up if my ESEE gets lost. But my ESEE 4 is my go to woods knife.

I have some tools cached at the BOL of course. I have a few more in the BOB, like a triple toothed pocket chain saw, Leatherman Signal and Micra. I have the EDC folder, the lid of the 2 qt canteen cup can be hafted and sharpened, if need be. There's also a credit card axe, which i modified with some tapering vanes welded to the side, so that it splits wood pretty well. It's a fair chopper if you lash a couple of stones onto the back side of the handle, astraddle of the "arrowhead" part of the chopper blade. Should get me to the BOL, where there's an axe, a bucksaw, shovel, pick, etc.
