Does anyone use this type of thing I never have but now I am thinking my Axe could sure be a little easier on my hands!

Got a note from Greg at Trestle Pine today

I've added a few more CRKT axes/hatchets to the storefront this morning.  Inventories have been tight with a number of suppliers so I'm glad to be able to offer what I have!

Thanks for the input Jay and Jan. I'll let you know when I decide.

Be prepared


The Midland seems to be a little more costly but also a little more substantial.  In my case we are looking at sporadic use but for John since he is in one of PG&E frequent power shutdown areas,the unit is going to have to hold up to a substantial amount of use.

its not but you can still find them on ebay , but that is just one brand, you can get dozens of different companies that make them

Thanks for the input Jay, Much appreciated. Is radio Shack still in business? All near me have closed up. Looking at a midland and one other.

John Kellogg I have one, and it does work well, i have a radioshack one, the only thing is it does take a lithium rechargable battery so you might want to get some , most all do,  it also can take double or tripple A batteries, so even cracking it will need to have a battery in it, so i would get plenty of those

Question for you preppers. I am considering buying one of those "Emergency" radios. The kind that wind up with a crank handle, Solar, and battery. Question is has anyone here bought one? and what is your thoughts on them? P G & E is a real pain out here and when my power goes out so does my internet, Phone and TV.
