  Cold Steel 2019 - New Bowie
Posted by: Benjamin Liu - 01-08-2019, 11:33 PM - Forum: Knives and Assorted Weapons - Replies (5)

The 2019 lineup can be seen here:

It is interesting that they have a crossbow though it is kind of pricey for the power:

What several people here would probably want is their version of the Western Bowie in carbon steel:

I suspect this will become a big seller.

  Survival Movie Critique
Posted by: Jimbo - 01-06-2019, 02:12 AM - Forum: Urban Survival Skills - Replies (29)

I know there has been discussions and critiques of survival movies in the past.  I ran a search but found nothing like I was looking for, so here goes.....

I came in last night and the wife was watching 'Bird Box' so for any who have not seen this movie, the synopsis goes like this, 'Ominous unseen presence drives the most of society to suicide.'  Which was a very poor description to the movie I watched.  Apparent this unseen presence was ghostly, and entered the humans body through their eyes, since the eyes had to be covered, anytime outside, and all windows, or other opening into the home, had to be kept covered with shades, curtains, etc., to keep the humans eyes protected.  Perhaps I have over simplified this aspect myself, but that was my perception of the movie.  Oh, yea, the people did discover that birds can perceive when the ominous 'ghostly' unseen's are presence.

After the movie went off, I asked the wife, "Why, didn't the people just start wearing heavily tented wraparound shades, since some of the scenes portrayed the humans could almost, but not quite completely, see through their cloth eye wraps or covers.  If the eyes had to be completely sealed for protection, then the dark goggles welders wear which completely seal against the face and forehead would certainly have protected the humans eyes, and certainly allowed them to move about without trying to emulate blind people.

There were so many measures critical thinking people could have did to improve their circumstances, it wouldn't have taken long for me to have turned the movie off myself, but since it was the wife's choice, I didn't say anything until it was over.  I don't guess the people in 'Hollywood's' make-believe world can think any better than people in the real world today.  Now where is that MacGyver fellow when Hollywood really needs him?

I'm not sure how i missed it, but didn't know the hoodlums BBS was back in business until today. Fortunately for me, ran across a member on another website and he told me about it. So hey, I'm back!

It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that we inform all of our friends and fans of the passing of Jim Merritt. Jim passed away early this morning due to a brain tumor and the complications from it.
Jim was one of the true legends of the knife world and was a renowned knife maker in his own right before he became Bob’s partner in Loveless Knives in 1982. From that point on Jim was the driving force behind the success of Loveless Knives. Bob often referred to Jim as the best
knife maker that he knew and the true heart and soul of Loveless Knives.
Jim was an incredibly humble man and enjoyed making knives more than anything else he did in life. He was a mentor and true inspiration to many people and especially to those in the knife making community. He will be dearly missed by all of his friends and family.
We will post information about his arrangements once they have been made. Thank you to all our fans and friends for your condolences and kind words on this incredibly difficult day.

I guess I joined this forum in 2012 (no memory of that). I've been watching the Hoods Woods DVDs lately and thought I would check out this forum. Doesn't seem super active, that's a bummer.
