Gerber Downrange Tomahawk

By | November 8th, 2013|Friday Survival Gear Reports|5 Comments

There's something decidedly awesome about Tomahawks. Maybe it's the little boy in me that wishes he was still out climbing trees, building potato cannons, riding BMX, or playing Cowboys and Indians well past an appropriate age... Maybe it's because they are actually a useful tool. (Maybe both. And that's ok too.) Recently, Gerber released the [...]

When I was but a wee woodsman, my grandfather introduced me to a Hobo Set. It seemed like a magic wonderment: A spoon, fork, and knife that folded into themselves and combined into one. Hobo sets haven't changed much--if at all--since the first time I was introduced to them. They've remained simply, straight forward, and [...]

By | September 14th, 2012|Friday Survival Gear Reports|0 Comments

The latest in the ongoing trend of mulit-use tools, Zippo's 4-in-1 Woodsmen saws, hammers, and chops. It seems like an odd direction for the famous lighter maker to go in, but their new tool is interesting. As it turns out, there is a connection though...

Never at a loss for creativity and originality, Gerber has introduced the Gator Machete. A bush whacking utility that reminds me of another survival tool, but I can't quit put my finger on it which one. Help me out--it's on the tip of my tongue...

By | March 9th, 2012|Friday Survival Gear Reports|3 Comments

I wonder how long it will take till we see the Trucker's Friend make an appearance in a [...]
