Flashlight and head lamp for Zombies

         You can never have to much light, there are all kinds of lights that you will need. For instance head lamps so you can  have your hands free to fight off the zombie's.You may also need  mini lights that you can use in low low light situations. Spot lights are a really good light for seeing at a distance. Then you have tactical lights which are perfect to attach to your weapon, so it's not dropped while trying to secure your area. Weather you are fighting zombies or if you simply have a power outage or any kind of catastrophic disaster you should always have a back up light system in all parts of your everyday life.

Aurora Fire Starter

The Aurora was created and manufactured by Solo Scientific. Having a good fire steel with you is a must, and having it made in the USA is a plus in my book.The Aurora fire starter uses a large 1/4 diameter (.635 cm) composite flint steel/magnesium rod with a built-in 440c striking blade. I like these, and I've used the blade on the Aurora and it works great. The super alloy striking blade (made from tungsten, carbide, and cobalt) will never dull and if it does just simply just remove the screw and turn the blade over.  The striker blade is  harder than any knife blade. The Aurora is designed to function wet or dry, and has an overall length of 3.6" (9.14 cm) diameter of 6.25" (15.875 cm). The weight is 1.6" ounces and it's reasonably priced between $20-25 dollars.

First Deer

I know I've been a little slow the last few days getting out new reviews, but it's all been because of a hunt that I truly love being able to do. It's a group call OWL (outdoors without limits) this organization has been established for all men, women and children with disabilities to be able to participate in outdoor sports such as hunting and fishing. This includes the Wounded Warrior Project as well. I have the pleasure of being a guide during the hunting that is done here in South Carolina. It just so happens that one of the guides didn't have a partner for this afternoon's hunt, so he took my youngest son with him. Well Brandon is 11 years old and it isn't his first time hunting but it was his first ever kill today. I really couldn't tell you who was more excited his guide Tracy or Brandon. If you would like to learn more about Outdoors Without Limits, join a chapter or just work as a volunteer check out their website at www. They go all over the U.S. and have different chapters spread out far and wide. As always this has been Max Malone saying be safe and God bless America.

PSK Fishing Survival Kit

               Every one needs to keep some kind of fishing kit in there PSK. This kit should have some hooks with a variety of sizes, fishing line of at least 25 feet, sinkers and if they'll fit get some small bobbers. Keep these items in a water tight container to prevent the hooks from rusting and you have a light weight kit that takes up very little space.

Otter Box PSK (Personal Survival Kit)

                                  Using the Otter Box as my PSK (Personal Survival Kit). The Otter Box is a water proof  box to keep all your survival needs and your personal items in.

Duck Tape

       They is so much that you can use duct tape for. Such as taping a tent together, taping your clothes if they get torn , You can tape a knife to a stick and make a spear ,and you can also use it as a restraint if needed, like restraining zombies. It can also be stripped into little pieces and balled up to use as tinder. Duct tape is a versatile tool.

BIC Lighter

One of the things that I keep in my PSK (personal survival kit) is a BIC lighter. I know that you think a lighter well I don't smoke, but think for just a minute. If you are in an area where you don't have electricity then a lighter will serve you well. As long as you keep it dry you can light fires, and sure it to signal for help among other things, such as lighting a can of gasoline to blow up some zombies. So when you are making your own PSK, one of the things you may want to put into it is a BIC lighter. It can also be a back up for your firesteel or matches. And they are super cheap and can be purchased about anywhere. Always remember to get a bright colored lighter so it can be found if dropped. In a pinch you can also use the sparking wheel when the fuel runs out. We are trying to prepare for the Zombie Apocalypse/Natural Disasters and will continue with these articles.

Personal Survival Kit Containers

You can choose any type of container for a PSK, its what works for you. It can be an otterbox or Altoids tin. I chose the otterbox because of its waterproofness. Basically you  need something small enough to carry on your person and that will protect your contents. An otterbox roughly cost around 9 buck where an Altoids tin cost around 2 bucks.

Another reason I chose the otterbox is because its clear and I can easily identify my contents. Its virtually indestructible.

Take time to develop your kit, do it once and do it right. Then always keep it on your person.

EDC Every Day Carry

Always good to have a EDC bag with you at all times.You can keep ever thing you need with you at all times.This bag is a Red Rock Rover by OutDoor Gear you can find this bag at sportsman"s guide for about $22.95 .

How to Make a Char Cloth

      Today I am going to walk you through making a char cloth. First you should find a small tin, I used an Altoid container, and you should punch a small hole in the center or the lid. Afterwards you need to get some cotton, linen or jute and cut it into 1-2 inch strips. Place the strips in your tin, then you need to build a camp fire or use a camping stove placed on low heat. Now let's get started, place the tin on or in  your fire with your cloth on the inside, and make sure to close the lid. It will start to smoke heavily so make sure you are doing this in an open area. When the smoking stops you will have yourself a char cloth, but remember to allow the tin to cool before opening it. Char cloth is a wonderful thing to use for starting a fire with, matter a fact it's what was used many years ago before the match was invented.

these photos are my personal Blackout 1550

     I am doing this review on one of the best knives I've ever owned,  it is the Kershaw 1550 Blackout Knife. I have carried this knife for several years. I lost the same knife not long after I got it and immediately replaced it with the same kind. Now this knife is in my pocket even before I put my wallet in it. I even have left it at home a time or two while on my way to work and have turned around and gone back to get it. The blade is a Sandvik 14C28N stainless steel and it is an assited opening and let me tell you guys this knife is fast. The weight is real easy on the pocket weighing in at 3.5oz with the blade length at 4 1/2 inches it is a good size.You can use this knife in you EDC or as a tactical folder. I know that people say that their knife is the best and but the best doesn't mean it costs the most or is a more popular brand. The best is something that stands the test of time and so far this one has. My knife isn't new and it still works quite well, I also want you to know that I don't only carry the Kershaw Blackout in my front pocket. I also carry the Kershaw Tanto Blur in my back pocket. You don't have to carry a Kershaw brand knife, but I do recommend that you carry a knife of some sort. Cause you never know when it could come in handy and get you out of a sticky situation or even save your life. This has been Max Malone with Maximum Survivalist saying be safe and God bless America.
