Cosmos "GHB"

Plan to write more in this area later on but just wanted to post some pictures of my "get home bag" as me and Rutgrr were discussing the topic of being prepared. 

Nothing to see here.

Keep Chiving on. :)


I got a new light, it seems nice so far except for the first clip breaking.

Sharp and Pointy Spike/Scribe Custom

This scribe was forged from high carbon steel by GA artist and bladesmith Carl Rechsteiner, better known as Crex. The scribe is flattened and folded over at the top to serve as a pocket clip and bears the makers mark, which is stamped while the steel is hot [and is not always centered].
