Knife Review: Tool-Logic SL3

The Tool-logic SL3 comes as either plain edge or as a 50/50 partially serrated blade. The serrated blade version of the SL3 can come in very handy for sawing through small branches. Other than that both versions of this knife are virtually the same. In this review we will cover the plain edge version of the SL3.

The blade is machined out of 420 J2 stainless steel. This type of steel has a high level of strength and relatively high impact resistance. It is also resistant to corrosion from oil, blood, detergents, water, food acids and many petroleum based products. The blade has a thumb opening hole and firesteel striker machined into it.

Gear Review: Camelbak Water Bottle (750ml)

Last weekend I brought my 750ml Camelbak water bottle along when I went hiking in the woods. The design is just great, I had it hooked onto my belt with a carabiner clip and it wasn't intrusive at all while hiking. I also like the no spill design, it really works perfectly! The shell also seems to be quite durable, its made out of Lexan Polycarbonate.

What shocked me was that this bottle encourages water consumption. It's so much easier to drink from I found myself drinking much more water than I did from a regular bottle. As an avid cyclist, hiker and outdoorsman I've been through many different water bottles and this one is by far the best I have ever used. I highly recommend it to everyone.

Machete Review: Gerber Gator:

The Gerber Gator is advertised as a long bladed dual function machete that can easily clear brush and chop or saw through branches. Admittedly when I went to order this blade online I did little research beforehand. I wish I would have because this machete actually turned out to be somewhat of a disappointment; read on to find out why.

I will start by reviewing the good points of the Gerber Gator. I found the ergonomic Gator grip handle to be one of the most comfortable I have ever come across. The grip is solid and secure while being surprisingly comfortable as well.

Gear Review: Compact Disposable Towel

Compact disposable towel pills are great to store just about anywhere because they have so many uses. I personally keep a few individual towel pills in my survival kit and I keep a full package in my main pack, I plan on keeping a couple in my first aid kit and the glove box of my car.

I have had quite a few times where I needed to use these in the field, mainly for cleaning my hands or wiping down a cut. They work very well. The only downside is that you need water to be able to use them, then again as a last resort I'm sure saliva make them expand as well.

Knife Review: Cold Steel Pocket Bushman

The Pocket Bushman by Cold Steel, where to start. Our friends at Cold Steel have done it again! At 6" closed and 10.5" open this is a large knife to say the least. One of things that really impressed me right off the bat was that this knife is very sharp right out of the box. This knife can handle all kinds of jobs and will take one hell of a beating, its a very durable knife that is practically bulletproof!

The blade is constructed of Krupp 4116 stainless steel and comes sharp right out of the box, this blade really maintain's a good edge. I've taken my Pocket Bushman into the wilderness quite a few times and it stayed sharp even after some serious abuse.
