  • Emberlit Camping Stove

Review: Titanium Emberlit Stove

Back in September we introduced the Emberlit Stove. Since then I have been playing with it, testing it, and even carrying it around in my EDC. The conclusion, simply put, this is a great little stove. As you may remember, there is a great story attached to this product. It's a story of ingenuity and [...]

  • Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion

Review: Influence by Robert Cialdini

Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion by Robert Cialdini may seem out of place on a site about survival, but that's only if you do not take into account that people are often your best tool for survival or hindrance in survival. The topic of social dynamics is one far over looked by many survival writers that [...]

Book Review: Bushcraft by Mors Kochanski

By |November 23rd, 2011|Reviews, Survival Book Reviews|5 Comments

After a one-year hiatus from studying bushcraft I decided it was time to dive back in. While digging through a few articles on the subject I came across the name Mors Kochanski. It was not a foreign name to me, but I had never read any of his works or watched any of his videos. [...]

  • The Survival Template by John Heatherly

Review: The Survival Template

By |October 5th, 2011|Reviews, Survival Book Reviews|4 Comments

 When The Survival Template first arrived on my desk, I was a little put off by what looked like nothing more than a pamphlet. How can a survival book of any worth be so slim? With little faith I began to read and was quickly astonished. The second thing that struck me about The Survival Templatewas [...]

Maxpedition Vulture-II Review

By |September 21st, 2011|Reviews, Survival Gear Reviews|3 Comments

Like so many others, putting together my first BOB became an obsession. I chewed through forum threads, books and articles, consuming people's load-out lists. What I found was that they range from down and dirty to Armageddon ready. One of the items I ended up focusing on the most was the bag itself. I agonized [...]

PocketToolX Brewzer Review

By |August 17th, 2011|Reviews, Survival Gear Reviews|0 Comments

PocketToolX's Brewzer may not look like much, but it does a few jobs very well. The Brewzer is unique in that it does not try to do everything - unlike so many gadgets these days. It offers to assist in accomplishing a short list of tasks that tend to be daily tasks: open bottles, open [...]

  • ESEE Izula Neck Knife

ESEE Izula Review

By |August 10th, 2011|Reviews, Survival Gear Reviews|3 Comments

ESEE Knives (formerly RAT Cutlery) offer some of the finest fixed blade survival knives in the $70 - $200 range. They are designed to be simple and a balance of quality and price. What I have always found most impressive is their "NO Questions Asked Guarantee". It says a lot about a company's belief in [...]
