Just ax yourself if you really need a big hatchet when this excellent, and extremely cute, stainless steel mini hand ax is available. Blade is 4-1/2” wide with a tang that extends through the 5” molded handle, so the whole shebang is just 9” long. Comes with a canvas sheath with a belt loop for easy carrying.
They're back! Those of a certain age will remember being taught to crouch under their school desks in case of nuclear attack. Shortly thereafter, the gov't, in its infinite wisdom zoomed about the cityscape plastering black and yellow signs on buildings with basements to designate them as fallout shelters wherein it stored cans of water and radiation meters which were so insensitive that any reading could only mean the past tense of crispiness. We have a quantity of these signs, brand new in the sense that they have never been plastered, but antique in the sense that they are Cold War originals and may show slight wear from being stored. 10" x 14" , 25 ga. galvanized steel. They have a black base coat on the front over sprayed with orange/yellow reflective paint in the familiar design rendered nearby by our faithful artist. This is a true collector's item fetching $50 and up in antique stores! A tasteful addition to even the dullest basement hangout.
Call it a MASK unit. This faux-military “Minor Surgery” kit from Voodoo Tactical® comes in a 7" x 5" x 2-1/2" OD canvas pouch containing: 6” wound probe; 3-1/2” stitch scissors; 3-1/2” tweezers; 5-1/2” bandage scissors; 5” straight and curved forceps; a #3 scalpel handle with disposable blade; pupil flashlight with mm gauge; alcohol pads; antiseptic towelettes; some 5/0 monofilament; and a gram of antibiotic ointment. And remember: reenacting actual combat surgery without a license is still not allowed.
A smaller version of the monster flood lights most of us can’t afford, this one’s rechargeable from iZoom with a 600-lumen 10W COB white LED with a 2-3/4" x 1-3/4" reflector in a water- and dust-resistant 4-3/8" x 3-1/4" x 4-1/4" with a padded 3-5/8" handle and adjustable 6-1/2" x 5-1/4" H-shaped base plus an adjustable mounting bracket. Includes a cigarette-plug charger and wall plug. Runs a little under 2 hours on a full charge.
Able to stand up to the infamous Helsinki Miasma, this brand new gas mask hails from the Finnish military (it's the standard NATO M61 model, although Finland isn’t in NATO) but we sell them for decorations. Don't depend on it for self-preservation. In gray rubber with the filter on the side and adjustable straps, it measures approx 8" tall x 5-1/2" wide and is very similar to the U.S M-9A1.
Tube tents are tubes in the sense that they're one piece, with floors, and can be used as shelters, ground cover or or blankets in emergencies or disasters. This one is bright orange nylon with an aluminized coating on the inside for insulation. Measures 82" x 36". Includes 23 feet of nylon rope for hanging between trees or posts and (4) 9" zinc-plated steel stakes.
This handy little gray plastic bug zapper, shaped like a lantern, is powered by an internal battery that's rechargeable via a USB charging cable. Stands 11-1/2" tall x 6" wide x 1/2" thick and will stand on a 2-1/4" wide base or hang from a 3/16" loop on the top. Has (4) insect attracting UV LEDs above the deadly lattice-work center.
Sextants came along after astrolabes but before GPS. (Just like you.) They're used for finding latitude and the distance between objects, and are still the non-electric, non-satellite-dependent backup for navigators. Ours is a beauty in solid brass with glass optical components, at a tiny price. Measures approx 4-5/8" x 4-1/4" x 3-1/4" overall and comes in a very nice wooden case. Includes instructions, which you're going to need unless you went to Annapolis where they still teach it. Handy for learning the principles of how a sextant works, but please don't try to find your way to Bora Bora with it, this one is more decorative than accurate.
Sterling silver is so over. Today's bride is picking this modern pattern of a pure titanium fork, knife and spoon in a matte gray finish, so it's equally at home in the forest or dining room. Won't tire you out eating or weigh down the backpack at a mere 14 grams per piece. Measure 6" long and they come on a small titanium carabiner. Matte finish makes for a sure grip, too. You should probably get a service for 12.
