Knife: some of the areas I am in during the days is dangerous, so need it to protect my self, I have only used it once during the 10 years I have had it tho.


Zumbi, may I ask about that one time ?!?!?

Did you pull it out when you found out someone couldn't repair your turntable ??   :lol:

Haha no. It was maybe 3-4 years ago, I was minding my own business, I was walking to a friend during the evening. And then a guy came and tried to steal my money, I said no, then he tried to attack me, I stabbed him in his knee! Then I just ran away as quick as possible.

Wow.  Good thinking going for his knee, rather than, say, his heart!

The repairman who couldn’t fix Zumbi’s turntable last summer was found murdered in an alley. A knife was found in the victim’s chest and “Lita Ford” carved into his forehead.

Police never did find who was responsible but I do remember Zumbi buying a new knife shortly after that tragedy. Just sayin’.

The repairman was a jerk (then again,  90% are).    The only question is,  how many, and which formats was the event recorded in?

Being a professional survival instructor, I feel compelled to "walk the walk" and also having a touch of OCD can be an excellent tool if you train yourself to channel it in the proper direction as it enables me to "wargame" potential scenarios in my head and the do my utmost to prepare for them. (Side note: preparing beforehand for emergencies is a great way to get yourself some peace of mind. Try it and watch your stress levels will drop.) Therefore I carry on my person:

A good, stout folding knife. Specifically a Hogue EX-01 to which I've tied a para cord lanyard giving me roughly six feet of cordage, and with para cords five inner strands, it totals 30 feet of cordage with which I can rig a shelter, set traps and snares, make a stickbow, make a bowdrill, etc. etc. Cordage is one of your five most vital survival tools. Speaking of, I also wear a para cord bracelet which gives me roughly another fifteen feet of cordage, multiply it by five and I've got another 75 feet! I carry a military-style bandana (100% cotton. That's important.) with which I can rig a sling (the kind you use to hurl rocks), wet and cover my head to keep cool, tie around my ankle and walk through dew-y grass to soak up the water to drink, use as an emergency bandage, etc. Literally 101 uses. I also always carry a multi-tool, which not only give me another knife as it features a good blade, but I also have a lot more tools at my disposal for field repairs. I went on Amazon and bought one of theose ferro-rods that screws into a knurled case which faetures a compass on the butt end. I took it and braided para cord around it and stitched it to my multi-tool sheath, thus making the tool and ferro rod together a mini-survival kit. Also in the sheath with the multi-tool is a flat knife sharpener. I carry also chapstick, Scope breath spray (which contains alcohol and will help you get a fire going), a bic lighter, and a small pen knife for small jobs (you can do a big job with a small knife but you can't do a small job with a big knife!) The pen knife is a Christy knife, and I highly recommend you go to their website and order you one because they're just awesome and they're also not your typical knife (go to their site & you'll see what I mean.) In my off-hand pants pocket I carry a tactial flashlight which runs at 800 lumens and has two seperate switches, one for steady on and another for strobe, which is extremely useful for disabling an attacker. In some cases, it's been known to make people throw up, so if he's puking he for sure ain't gonna be thinking about hurting you anymore!

I carry a few other things but that's enough for now. Any questions, fire away!

Here's my Hogue. I tell you, Hogue is producing some simply awesome knives nowadays and I'll put 'em up against a Benchmade any day of the week. The quality and fit & finish is just outstanding.

I simply happen to be a knife collector who appreciates a quality blade. I do not sexually fetishize them and personally find such an idea revolting.

Edited to add: Please accept my sincere apologies if you were joking, I've been accused of sexually fetishizing weapons too many times on this board before and knee-jerked, it just bugs the crap out of me when folks do that.

Yes, I live in SC and very cold weather is a rarity hereabouts. Are there items you'd personally recommend for colder climates? I'd be very appreciative to hear from you on this since with this thread I am (in all honesty) basically picking y'all's brains! :D

In my truck I have a full-on survival kit/bug-out bag stashed under the back seat along with two sleeping bags good for temps down to about 30 degrees. I also have a .22 LR Henry survival rifle with 500 rounds of ammo, a trauma kit, 2 rain suits, 2 ponchos, an entrenching tool,  and 5 MREs in a compartment behind the back seat. And one of those deluxe break-down kits.
