Now, get out of that!
« on: August 31, 2019, 01:48:57 PM »
Here's an idea for a bit of fun. We put forward a hypothetical situation and people nominate the "ONE" tool they would choose to get out of it. Perhaps with a brief justification. Sounds good? Let's go...

You are prisoner in a POW camp. Escape is only possible if you could build a rudimentary glider. Wood, canvas, screws and nails are plentiful but there is zero access to equipment. A kindly intern offers to smuggle ONE item in. But what should you choose?

Now, get out of that!

A Leatherman Supertool 300, or a Victorinox Swiss Tool X, or a Swiss Champ.

Throw it in to guard's head, knock him out and you don't need glider. Just walk out of POW camp 8)

I vote Swisstool X.  Scissors to cut canvas, saw to cut wood, Drivers for the most common screws with longer reach than leatherman bits ( that's if the intern brings the bits. He did say only one item.)  Awl to punch and drill holes in the canvas and wood, pliars for streaching the canvas and keep the handles colsed and it makes a great hammer for the nails.  Wire cutter for smaller nails, hack saw and file for shaping and or cutting laeger nails and screws, chisel to make cut outs for joints...

The Spirit dose all of these except drive nails and I still am not a huge fan of the scissors ( althoug they might work better depending on how heavy the canvas is.) and it dose have a better chisel so it would be a good back up.

The hammer function on the Swisstool does indeed work rather well...

Or you focus sun beams on to fuel tank, explosion creates distraction, you flash it in guards eyes and while he is blinded you steal there tank and brake out. (Don't you guys just love Macgyver?)  :rofl: :rofl:

The ship is sinking. The last place on the lifeboat is reserved for the ship's barber. The Captain will let you aboard if you can provide proof you are indeed a barber. He requires a neat haircut, a shave and fingers manicured as proof and to look repectable for the press upon rescue.

SOG Powerlock with scissors.  The sharpest knives I own (factory edges) came from SOG.  I'm pretty sure I could shave with my Powerlock.

OKay guess I ended that one...
Now you have arrived as a volunteer at a four day secluded mountain survival camp in January, only to find you were suposed to have bought a gift for the Camp Director.  There are no stores around so natural matierials will have to be made into the gift and it needs to be comperable to gifts others have brought.  What one tool would you most want and what would you make?

What sort of gifts did the other's bring?  I'd be most inclined to find someone who brought something nice and offer to pay for it if they would just add my name to the card and say it was from both of us.

A machete or hatchet then and I would go out and find some fat wood and make a bundle of fatwood splits for the director.

I'm going along the same tack. :iagree:

As it's January the best gift would be logs for the fire. I'll take the Gerber Freescape Camp Saw. And that would be a fine pile of logs in 4 days!

Since everyone is probably doing something fire related.  I gonna try to think out of the box a little--I will ask for one tool, which happens to be my primary signaling device, the Samsung cell phone, and I gonna go and get the Director a year long subscription of Maxim or Martha Steward Living magazine. 

So the Director could read up on world events, while getting cosy with fire made with the fat wood and logs.

A Flexcut Craving Jack pocket knife.  Taking a leftover limb from a green tree someone cut down for firewood  :facepalm:, I would carve a walking stick with the Camp Director's dog's head at the top.   :D

I was thinking the same thing. She might be Hot.
So, I'm thinking here that the issue might be getting a fire started so you can make the perfect mashed taters for the emperor.  I'd  want my Swiss Champ. First I'm peeling the potatoes, then I'm scraping or feathering a log for tinder, then I'm using the magnifying lens to start the fire in my tinder pile.
