2017-10-24T03:22:06+00:00 By |Categories: Featured, General Survival|

Growing up we had a what we called a “kitchen axe” that was bigger than a hatchet, but smaller than a felling axe. It was used for everything from making shavings and small kindling for fire starting, to larger kindling, to splitting small rounds and quarters for fire. The kitchen axe lived just outside the kitchen door, but even found duties with meat prep and game butchering. In fact, the kitchen axe was an all-round indispensable tool that made its way onto camping trips as well. By Doc Montana, a Contributing Author to SHTFBlog and Kitchen Axe I hadn’t thought much about the kitchen axe until I needed just such a tool. In my stable of axes and hatchets from the short handled Gränsfors Bruk Hand Hatchet with a 9” handle, to my Gränsfors Bruk American Felling axe with a 35” handle. While the extremes in size are nice, what would also be an excellent option is something right down the middle. A axe that behaves as an axe while also behaving as a hatchet. Or perhaps..

In the opening events of one the many apocalyptic fiction books I’ve read there was a scene where a woman’s Rolex stopped due to the EMP. My first thought was she must have had a counterfeit watch with a quartz movement. All real Rolex watches have a mechanical movement. Not an electrical circuit, battery or microchip in sight. In reality, Rolex watches have been a go-to timepiece globally for special ops boys and girls and tough guys for half a century, especially SEALs and other big guns. I remember my dive instructor loved to tell the story about watching his Rolex Submariner go flying off his wrist while he was lobbing grenades in Vietnam. Must have been left-handed was my first thought.
