Be smart, key smart

Posted by Evolution Of The Apocalypse

     The title says it all! The folks over at Key Smart sent us one to check out. So have you ever had your keys and been like these are annoying and bulky? How bout wanted to go running or hunting and thought your keys are to loud or don't fit in a small pocket? Well the key smart fixes all of that. I recived one in the mail and started to put it together and it's so simple yet so smart. 


     The package includes the two bars and spacers for the key spacing and setup of the keys you use. Also is a lanyard style keeper for a keyless entry pad or any other item you wanna attatch to the end. Once put together you have a simple yet very awesome product that is sleek and fits into any small pocket. I've been using mine since I got it and it's great! My keys are more orginized and most of all together in a way that is easy to locate which key you are looking for. A flashdrive can also be put onto one which is cool for transport of media. I've lost flashdrives by just throwing them into a bag or my pocket. So loose those stupid key rings and pick up key smart! These can be found at getkeysmart.com for $19.98 and other accesories can be purchased there as well. Go give them some love and tell them we sent you. A YouTube video will be up very soon to check on our channel EOTApodcsst.

Turner Knife and Tool Sheepsfoot

Posted by Evolution Of The Apocalypse

     I was real excited about getting this knife in the mail! I saw photos before it was shipped, but photos and the real thing can be totally different. This was sent to eVo as a loner knife, but after opening the packaging and seeing this thing, I hit them up about purchasing the knife! Which I'll explain and go over the knife in a bit but first off, I wanna thank them for letting us review the knife, and being great in the process. 



    First off, let's start with the maker, Tyler Turner, owner and knife maker of Turner Knife and Tool. Tyler grew up in a very small town. His family has farmed for over 100 years. He went to welding school after high school and became a union boilermaker and welded all over the US and South America. He is a family man and farms with his father, growing soybeans and corn and raises cattle. Then he makes blades at night. He also likes riding his Harley and drinking Budweiser.


     So now on to the knife he sent over. All his blades are custom, hand ground blades. I received the sheepsfoot design made from 01 tool steel with canvas Micarta scales with green liners. The pattern on the scales is reptilian and 3/8" thick. It has an acid stone wash finish. To compliment the knife is a custom gray kydex sheath with the belt loop built into the sheath. The knife measures out at a length of just under 8 inches unsheathed and around 9 inches sheathed. The blade is full tang and 5/16" thick. And razor SHARP!!


     Ok, so I got this knife in my hands, and it has not left my hip since! This is the first sheepsfoot I've had the chance to check out. Some people may be wondering what a sheepsfoot design means:


- Sheepsfoot = flat edge, curved spine
- no tip to break off = more durable
- great for wood carving
- no curve in the blade = lessens "slipping" in the cuts like a drop point does
- no point to hurt yourself with
- easy to use with your thumb on the spine (again, wood carving)
-The straight edge makes for more accurate cutting and is easy to control. Also easier to sharpen.


     Final thoughts on this tool, I absolutely love this blade! It's compact yet perfectly fit for my hand. The blade is super sharp and with a cutting edge at just under 4 inches it's very versatile for many applications. It rides real well on your hip. In fact you don't feel it on your belt. The canvas micarta with the reptilian pattern is very comfortable and if it gets wet will not slip in your hands. The acid stone wash looks amazing on this blade, and I personally like that look. The kydex sheath is really well made and fits the knife with good retention to hold the knife in place. It has a built in belt clip that works great. The rivets are placed well and you could add a tek lok on it with slight modification if you really wanted to, but I see no need to add it. Like I said, I REALLY love this knife. To the point I decided to purchase it! The price point is about $185 which for a totally custom knife is not a bad price at all. Tyler puts a lot into his work and pride into his blades and it clearly shows. He also makes other custom knife designs as well. Go and do yourself a favor and check him out on Facebook at Turner Knife and Tool. I wanna thank Tyler again for his work and allowing us to check out one of his sweet ass blades out!

Dead Snow 2 Review

Posted by Evolution Of The Apocalypse


     Dead Snow 2 picks up where the prequel left off, but goes where no man or zombie has gone before. This was an amazingly entertaining movie, which exceeded any and all  expectations. Full of action and gore, Dead Snow touched my bleeding heart, making me laugh until I cried. 

 

     The story picks up with Martin back in the night in the woods as the lone survivor. Somehow he barely escapes with his life, from the hands of the Nazi zombie army leader Colonel Herzog, which is where the literal twists begin. 

 

     With the help of the coveted Zombie Squad from the greatest place on Earth, 'Merica, Martin is faced with the task of stopping the growing Nazi zombie army from killing everyone. With a beautiful and genious angle of this thriller, Martin and the Squad form their own army, of Russian POW zombies! This army of Russians have an equal thurst for revenge for Colonel Herzog and his army. The Colonel meets his nemisis on the battle field, and the fight for humanity... or zombanity is destined to be decided.

 

     Dead Snow 2 revels in unique kills, explosions, and comedy alike. With endless blood and gore throughout, this movie will be a treasure in my collection for years to come. I recommend that you add this to your "Must Own" list as well.

Tusk film Review

Posted by Evolution Of The Apocalypse

 

    As a huge fan of Kevin Smith films and podcasts I had already heard the story of the walrus and the carpenter on the show SModcast episode #259. In this episode Kevin and Scott pretty much make up a script on the show and ask the fans to vote. A simple #walrusyes or #walrusno. Well it's simple to say we know the outcome because we are here now talking about the film Tusk. 

     The film has a great cast of Justin Long, Johnny Depp, Michael Parks and Haley Joel Osment. It is set as 2 podcasters Wallace and Teddy that do a show where Wallace goes out and meets people to come back and talk about them with Teddy on the show. As a podcaster I felt this was awesome with all the podcast lingo being thrown around. As Wallace heads to Canada to interview a kid he finds himself interviewing a old man Mr. Howe played by Michael Parks. Wallace is then drugged and slowly turned into a walrus...yes, I said walrus. Mr. Howe wants to recreate his long lost friend that he was stranded on an island with. As things go south with his girlfriend, Teddy and inspector LaPoint played by Johnny Depp track down Mr. Howe and try to save their friend.

     Tusk got a lot of hype followed by lots of haters saying Kevin Smith failed and the film was not very good. I say they are wrong. This was brilliant with the perfect mix of comedy and horror. If you know Kevin Smith there are tons of Easter eggs in it. One thing Kevin does great is dialogue and we had that for sure. It's not a gory film by any means but by the end you are saying to yourself, this is fucked up...do yourself a favor go support this movie in any way you can!! Buy it for yourself, friend or family member!! Way to go Kevin!!!!! The last thing I'll say is #walrusyes

Raw Dog Tactical Defender pro series holster

Posted by Evolution Of The Apocalypse

     Raw Dog tactical holsters was a company I was suggested to check from a buddy of mine. So after looking into them I soon realized this was an awesome looking kydex holster. But we all know looks can be deceiving. So I contacted them about us reviewing one of the defender pro series for a glock 17. I was pleased they sent us one. 



     Frist impressions: As I opened up the package, the blue kydex I picked caught my eye better then it looked in the picture I saw. It is available in 6 colors as well. The leather backside is a sweet addition also. So very appealing to the eye for sure!


     Fit of the pistol: One thing I've found out with holsters is that sometimes the pistol may not fit 100% perfect, and a little adjusting is necessary. Not with the Raw Dog! This thing fit like a glove with the right mix of tension and ease of pull. Also the holster has tension adjusting screws, but I didn't not have to adjust them at all. The belt clip can also be adjusted to change the wear. The pistol is removed from the holster very nicely without a ton of friction that may cause surface damage to your pistol. So the fit and finish is exceptionally good! 


     Carry: I spent a few days carrying the glock 17 in the holster and I've used a few inside waistband holsters before and found they either hurt to wear for long periods or they just gave you an awkward feel inside your pants. But this was by far the first one I've found that actually is very easy to wear and once you get it on you forget it's there. So another huge plus!!

     Specs: 
:Sturdy kydex that will not crush under pressure. 
:9-10 oz. quality English bride leather.
:Easy on/off design.
:Adjustable degree cant.
:Integrated adjustable retention system.
:Deep concealment minimizes printing.
:Made in the USA with pride.
:30 day money back guarantee. 


     Final thoughts: I absolutely loved this holster!! Not only is it comfortable it looks great! I've seen holsters go for 3 times the price of these that are horrible. Trust me for $39.95 it's a must have for anyone looking for a kydex holster. Trust me on this one. So go over to www.rawdogtactical.com to check out the 6 different colors to choose from. I wanna thank them for letting us check one out. Keep a eye out for a YouTube video on it very soon. The holster will spotlight on episode 125 of the podcast!
