    You must travel in some bad areas. Good ideas. What's the handle for?

    i don't think there are safe places anymore judging by the location of mass shootings...i didn't hike or ride my mtb as much this year due to my motorcycle taking more of my free time so i wanted to load up my edc pack with extra weight to get in better shape and this armor serves dual purpose :)

    not to get into politics but i also wanted to buy them now while it's still legal for civilians to own them. they've tried to ban them in the past but failed...i'm not waiting around.

    the bottom handle is for a more secure grip while lifting the pack above the shoulders/head and while doing other physical training with it. google pic "goruck challenge" - depending on one's weight each person is required to have either a 20 or 30 lbs minimum dry weight inside the pack. people usually attend with their friends for team building and serve as motivation to get in better shape.

    Always a bright light when it comes to your lanterns, mewolf1 ...

    Winter ... and overdue for a hot camp coffee. Just shovelled the snow aside to make room for the emberlit on its second outing. There's something about the taste of coffee that reflects tree branches :)

    aside from my mora 510 my kepharts are my favorite knives (two on the left are ml knives and the orange one is a bark river 3v).

    [​IMG]


    compared to the ml knives for the curious...used to be when you read kephart it's ml knives that's the one to have...my first impression is now it has a stiff competition for that title :)

    I've depended on my Trailblazer, a break down buck saw, and always kept one in the vehicle and one at home for property and camp - absolutely no complaints at all. Yet, the Agawa Canyon's "no loose parts" and lower vertical rise appealed to me, and so it turned up under the tree this year.

    I have plans to make a shoulder carry sheath for this (or Trailblazer) and my belt axe and one large blade - my wood processing musketeers.

    Just under 21.75 " length, unfold green handle to right, unfold black handle (beneath) to left, take each full circle & bring to pivot together under tension.

    DSCF3858 AGAWA CANYON SAW FOLDED 650 MED.jpg

    Now, with anything sharp and fangy that is under tension, the hard way has taught me to keep it under control ... and I have practiced to this end and now find it easy to set up ... but I do set my foot on the black (left hand vertical in pics) to secure while tensioning and releasing that blade with care. No sense in bleeding over it. That's only to assist my strength - others may be completely confident sans.


    DSCF3860 AGAWA CANYON SAW UP 650 MED.jpg
    Cuts like a hot knife through butter and this is not the most aggressive blade offered. How it will compare to the Trailblazer will need a later 'apples to apples' comparison - which will result in a good fire if nothing else :thumbsup:

    I am not much of a "gadget" guy, but this utensil set I just picked up is pretty nice. Knife came shaving sharp, it's nice and compact, and most importantly, there is no SPORK involved! I despise sporks! Anywho, clearanced out to $5 at Academy, so I couldn't pass it up!
