THE HAMMER SLINGSHOT REVIEW

Today’s video is my review of the Hammer slingshot from simple-shot.com

The Hammer is a modular slingshot system that can go between being a regular slingshot and a sling bow which makes it perfect for hunting in the woods or being in your bugout bag. The design of The Hammer lets you remove the regular slingshot head and replace it with a sling bow head giving it a lot of versatility in the field. The Hammer has a rail on it for mounting accessories on it as well. You can buy a bow fishing setup for it or you can make other attachments for it as well.

Thanks to the good folks at simpleshot.com for supplying me with the Hammer slingshot so i could make this video.

EPISODE-236 2 KNIFE REVIEW

Today i review 2 knives, one from Gerber called the EAB lite its a small everyday carry knife. It is a foldable box cutter that weighs mere ounces and when its folded up looks like more like a money clip than a knife. This is actually a follow up about one year after carrying one of these knives for a year. Here are some stats on the Gerber EAB lite.

DSCF6085

  • Open Length: 5.10″
  • Blade Length: 1.5″
  • Closed Length: 2.85″
  • Weight: 2.5 oz
  • Handle Material: Stainless Steel

You can find  the Gerber EAB lite on amazon for xxx by clicking this link Here.

 

The second knife is a knife from Titan international knives. It is the closest thing that they sell to a bushcrafting knife that i could find,Titan international is a smaller producer of knives from Verona WI. They produce ,from what i can tell a semi custom knife. I think they buy the blanks and make the handles which makes them an affordable knife for the first time buyer.it appars that they do the final fit and finish on their knives.

DSCF6084

The knife i bought from them is made out of 15N20, 1095 damascus steel, which it appears that they make a lot of their knives from. The handle is made from black micarta with brass pins.

  • OA length 9″
  • Blade width 1.25″
  • Blade length 4.75″
  • Handle length 4.25″
  • Blade thickness 3/16″
  • Handle thickness 3/4″

EPISODE-218 WHY DEER HUNT

Well, as i am writing this we are almost into the second day of wisconsin rifle season. This episode was supposed to be out on friday but i had issues uploading the episode. So why deer hunt? I go over some of the reasons why i deer hunt. I also talk about some of the reasons others deer hunt. To me it is a awesome time of the year that i can put everything down for a week and just go out and be by myself, collect my thoughts,and reset my self for the year. now if you listen to my other episodes you know i “rough it ” by no means but i very rarely get the time to hang out with my hunting buddies or just grab my rifle and go take a walk in the woods, that is why i deer hunt. If you want to hear more listen in to todays episode. Also you will notice some of the music is different today. If you want to watch the videos for the music you hear today check out the links below as played on the podcast.
