Lucky 13 knives

Posted by Evolution Of The Apocalypse

     With Saint Patrick's day just behind us one thing that I got the pleasure of was for the past couple weeks was using the model 13 from lucky 13 knives. This one has sick kirinite scales with the sweet acid wash finish. Once I opened the box out came the knife in the kydex sheath. First impressions was wow! Seeing pictures did this blade no justice. 




    So let's dive into the man himself Chris Peterson. 

     I live in Park City, Kansas and am a machinist by trade. I started making knives 4 years ago so the common man could own a high quality knife, made in the USA. Something that doesn't cost him an arm and leg and is something to be proud of. I don't think that a high quality knife should cost $500 or more. All of my knife materials are made in the USA. The heat treat is done by a local company Bodycote, they specialize in aerospace, so their process is precise.



     One thing that drew me to lucky 13 was the unique style Chris has. It's very modern and sexy. The blade design itself is something I've not seen before. It's made from CPM D-2 all hand made. No water jetting or anything. So you get a total custom knife with seroius sex apeal. The blade is super sharp by Chris with Japanese water stones. The finger hole makes this knife super easy to use and have control over. 




     The kydex sheath is a master peice by itself. Chris takes every single detail seroius in his work and the way he cuts and puts this package together real nice. The retention on the blade is perfect for any carry option which is avaible since its equipt with the tek lox. 




     So when it's all said and done I've seen a lot of knives and knife makers and while they all are great each has their own style and Chris petersons is amazing and raw which is what this busines needs! You might say $160 for a knife. But remember these guys put a ton of time into these knives and their hearts. I can also say no one works harder then Chris. So any lucky 13 knife is worth every penny!

Heavy Cover Inc. Titanium Mess Kit

Posted by Evolution Of The Apocalypse

     When thinking about survival either in a backpacking scenario or bug out bag a good mess kit or canteen set up is key. Now we all know you can pick up a cheap canteen with a cup on eBay or Amazon for around 25-30 bucks and while it will do it's job it can get heavy. That's where Heavy Cover Inc. comes in with their titanium mess kit. This is a USGI style kit. But before we go any further let's take a quick look at the company. It's a USMC veteran owned company that sells a ton of diffrent gear. Ok, now let's jump into the specs of the kit.



      

 Benefits of Titanium Cookware:

  • Biocompatible (BPA Free, Nontoxic to the human body) 
  • Non-porous, non-stick material for easy clean up 
  • Rapid heat conductor, less gas/fuel and faster boil time. 
  • Canteen won't puncture or rip like plastic water bladders. 
  • As strong as steel but 45% lighter. 
  • Anti-corrosive and will not rust.

 Product Specifications:

  • Titanium Canteen/Tritan Cap Capacity= 1.1 Liter (37 ounces)
  • Titanium Canteen Cup Capacity= 23.7 ounces (700 mm)

Product Weight:

  • Titanium Canteen/Tritan Cap= 6.041 ounces (172 grams)
  • Titanium Canteen Cup/Titanium Canteen Cup Lid= 4.8 ounces (132 grams)

Material Thickness:

  • .5 mm Titanium

 


     Now after comparing the standard GI Kit to the Heavy Cover it's clearly lighter and stronger. Which is huge since with any item you carry, any ounces you can shave off is key. Also with the plastic you can still get toxins from the plastic even if it's BPA free. One awesome thing is you have two ways to boil water in it, not just one with the standard GI kit. The non-corrosive and porous element makes it real sweet for easy clean up. 


     So when building a kit or adding to a existing kit think about weight and long term. The Heavy Cover mess kit is amazing and any backpacker or survivalist will tell you that every oz. you shave is like gold. Now while this kit is pricey the benefits outweigh the price. As an avid outdoorsman and survival guy, I love to see new products change people's opinions. That's what Heavy Cover Inc. has done with this kit. The strength and durability is amazing! The fact that's it's 45% lighter then steel is huge! So when you are building a kit or upgrading an old one check out this kit for the build. Trust me it's worth every penny. Check out the upcoming YouTube video on the kit soon!!!

Survivor Filter

Posted by Evolution Of The Apocalypse

     When it comes to survival nothing is more important then water! Clean, safe water is a must no matter if it's a survival scenario or just a backpack trip. We all know the rule of three. So 3 days without water is very dangerous and I've tried a crap load of water filter in the past with really good results. But one has stood out that I recently came across and it's from Survivor Filter. This is not your typical water filter that just does the job but you still have that smell or taste that is a bit off. Before we jump into the guts of the filter let's lay out the man behind the filter.


 
     Survivor Filter was created following my former career consulting on military operations where I worked with US and other allied military and diplomatic personnel on and in troubled hot zones including Kosovo, Iraq, Libya and Somalia.

     By these experiences, I came to understand that access to clean water is no longer something we humans can take for granted, especially as water is slowly becoming the most precious commodity on the planet, even more than oil.  This is why Survivor Filter was created to provide every person in North America with access to clean, drinkable water in any environment.


     At Survivor Filter, we're here to serve our customers, providing them with an unbeatable warranty and a range of products at an unbeatable price. We want every person in North America to use our products whether they are camping, hiking, backpacking or just staying prepared. What’s more, we make sure you are satisfied by providing you with products that have best level of filtration available at a reasonable price, an unbeatable warranty and a no hassle 30 Day money back guarantee. We love hearing from our customers, especially about their travels and adventures with our products. This is why I encourage you to engage with us through our Blogs and Social Media!   


     Now let's look at the filter itself:

 Features

  • Triple Filtration to 0.05 microns, thanks to UF Filtration, Carbon Filtration and mesh - 4 times more efficient than the competition at 0.2 microns.
  • Dual Filters (Ultra and Carbon) are removable and can be cleaned or replaced by purchasing on Amazon as needed. Plus, comes with 4 extra mesh filters!
  • BPA Free and Weighs only 3.5 ounces. Fits just about anywhere (7 inches long X 1 inch wide) and Comes with detailed instructions and How to Use Manual.
  • Can be used directly from fresh water source, OR firmly attached to a soda bottle, making the Survivor Filter the Most Versatile Personal Water Filter Straw Available.
  • Other personal water filters are difficult to drink from, the Survivor Filter Personal Water Filter has a Special Mouthpiece, an integrated Cap to keep the mouthpiece clean and produces a SUPER FAST FLOW RATE of 200 ml. (7 ounces) per minute. 

    Now I took this filter out to a local pond that I've used similar filters on before so I know how it will compare to the other filters. First off this thing is super compact much like the McNett we reviewed. So that is a huge plus as it will fit into virtually any pack. The flow rate was a big plus mainly because some I've had to really draw to get the water flowing so the flow rate is real good. The soda cap style attachment makes it convenient in case you wanna fill a larger supply up for day longer trip or a large family. With the triple filtration the taste was huge!!! Some filters still leave you with that musky taste or smell. Not with this one. Great taste with no smell. I take that is the triple filtration system. The mouth piece has a slip off cap that is held on by a rubber keeper which is great so you won't have to worry about losing it.



     One thing I really hate is when you get something and can't replace parts. The survivor filter is totally rebuildable with parts on Amazon or their store. So with all that said for around 30 bucks this is a top of the line filter that can be thrown into any backpack or bug out bag. It has multiple uses and works like a dream! Great taste, gets it down to 0.05 microns which takes out things like pesticides. It will keep you hydrated and more importantly alive!!! We will have a YouTube video up on our channel here shortly to show you hands on testing.
