Damn.  I want a battle ax.   :chucks:

 

I prefer my russian combat shovel.....   No for real.  I keep it in the back of the Subaru, right next to the emergency blankets, and the candle lantern.   

 

Its very plain looking, and doesn't garner the attention of an axe, or machete, but it is at least as capable as both if pressed into service as a personal defence tool.

It is a very good tool to get other tools when needed.

I have an entrenching tool that must be kept sheathed because the edges are polished razor sharp.

 

You know, for when you have to dig through marshmallows FAST  :)

lol, TOTALLY!!   I keep the sheath on mine too.  I don't want it to damage any of the other equipment stored with it, and I don't want to damage the sharpened edge.

 

So I freely admit this video (it's an advertisement from a company that makes these shovels) is a little on the ridiculous side, but it does show how dangerous a little shovel can be.

Cold Steel makes some real solid, useable equipment.  Not everything they make is as useful, but a lot of it is.   I also really like their cutlass machete. 

 

It's been a great heavy machete for clearing brush and scrub around my place.  And I'm sure if it were pressed into play, it could also be a very effective weapon against zombies, lol.

 

Its video isn't quite as cool but...

I read this as:

 

"And I'm sure that if I were pressed into a play, I could make an effective buccaneer..."

 

At first pass only obviously...

I probably should have mentioned that my battle ax is really kind of a miniature.   It is hand forged though.

Might be time to upgrade your battle ax and your 2400 baud modem... Upgrade the modem first if you plan to shop for your battle ax online, at least that's my suggestion... At the speeds you have been running, you might actually need to defend yourself before you can hit the "Buy It Now" button...

I thought that 2400 was the upgrade.   I don't shop online though, anyway.   I hike over the mountains to the trading post every spring and fall for provisions.

I remember having to buy an adaptor to make my TRS-80 model III talk through its modem at a whopping 300 baud, but thats cuz it was through our old rotary phone system.  The old school ones with 4 pins big enough to run a space heater, lol

 

IIRC ( that was close to 40 years ago) that's all we could get through the old rotary phone system.     If you lived in town back then, and had the newer service available , you could ditch the cradle system with its 300 baud, and plug your modem directly into the wall socket.  That let you jump up to a whopping 1200 baud.  

 

Shit, back then 32K of RAM was a lot, LOL.

This is pure sick, while indeed we all battle with millions around the globe, especially in 3rd world countries like Brazil & India where cancer patients and emergency accident patients are given none to little pain control,

Did I miss something....? 

 

I'm lost, Air,  Did you possibly respond to the wrong thread, or am I just being thick.

We joke about inflicting pain.

 

Air wants to give everybody narcotics.

 

I think I see win/win here somewhere  :)

Man - turn my back for a day and this thread goes from gun violence to shovel mayhem to Indian narcotic deserts . . .

 

While I've enjoyed throwing some knives and hatches and stuff, I expect the day I'm caught outside throwing razor sharp shovels at 2 liters of generic soda, watermelons, pig heads, and anatomically correct jello molds (WTF?) .... I'll be single again.

 

If we control shovels, only criminals will have shovels.  You're all part of the problem. 

 

And give the southeast Asians drugs, for fucks sake!

 

Or at least a Glock with a 50 round stick magazine.  Don't wanna be the kid on the block bringing a shovel to a Bornean Narcotic Gun Fight, right?

 

Watermelon season has passed, but pumpkins are cheap around here. 

 

Once Alder hikes over the ridge to the general store for a sack of pemmican and corn meal, I'm gonna practice my shovel skillz while shooting up some of these Indian narcotics, yo!

 

:)

I think the small battle ax will suffice for dealing with Soliver.   My weight has gotten back up to 130, all muscle.   I will continue to train for the inevitable meetup.

A broom can be a rather lethal weapon, I know someone who used one on 'uninvited visitors' and they spent a week in hospital...

 

ED: Who's got the morphine? Seriously I want to know. If you want me to stay in hospital, it's a pump or I'm going home...
