The New Trailside Cookbook, by Kevin Callan and Margaret Howard
Lucky me! I have another great book to review. This time we're jumping into The New Trailside Cookbook, by Kevin Callan and Margaret Howard (Firefly Books). From the start this cook book had me “oohing and aahing” over the recipes and tips. With 100 recipes inside, this book has offerings sure to please even the most diverse palates at camp.
Drago Gear 36” Discreet Gun Case Review
Earlier this summer the staff here at the Woods Monkey had an opportunity to check out Drago Gear’s Discreet Gun Case. Most tactical rifle cases on the market today clearly look it with storage and magazine pockets covering the outside of the case. While those cases are very functional they can be obvious as to their function. Drago Gear offers up a slick unassuming alternative that conceals the contents so that you are not telegraphing your personal belongings to your neighbors. It is notable that at a glance the case does not look like a rifle case.
ESEE Knives Candiru Review
It’s the little things in life. They can save you or hurt you even in the wilds. Little steps add up to miles on the trail. They also can get your leg broken with a single badly placed step on rocky footing. That doesn’t mean you need to avoid them. You just need to give them a degree of notice you might not have before.
So, What is the Best Slingshot??
One of the most frequently asked questions I receive is “What is the best slingshot?”, to which I generally answer, “The one you shoot the best”. However, that leaves a world of options available to you and likely does not answer the original question. Slingshots are profoundly simple, yet are capable of astounding power, accuracy, and precision… and that is where the technical questions arise. So let’s start with the slingshot itself- fundamentally the least important piece of slingshot equation (more on slingshot elastics in later posts).
A kwaiken is a small, unadorned fixed blade that was carried by men and women of the Samurai class in feudal Japan. The Boker Kwaiken is the production version of knife maker Lucas Burnley’s custom folding kwaiken. I first met Lucas Burnley several years ago at the BLADE show. I was really impressed with his kwaiken fixed blade. It was a simple design, but the fit and finish was outstanding. He’d quickly sold out, but luckily I was able to order one.
