I have a nice Opinel knife. I live in the UK so I want a knife which is aesthetically pleasing, locks, but isn't going to set off any alarm bells with the plod. I recommend it for backpacking and EDC if you are looking for a new blade.
I have never used it for anything important but taking it has never hurt either. Going out is supposed to be fun. If you like playing with knifes then take one with you.

NES - perfect
SNES - no 3d acceleration, so games like yoshi's island or starfox run poorly. Will supposedly be fixed in future software update.
GB/GBC - perfect
GBA - perfect
MASTER SYSTEM - perfect
MEGA DRIVE - perfect
NEO GEO - close to perfect
PSX - most 2d games and some 3d games. They run decently but not perfect. Future updates may increase performance.

The low resolution screen allows pixel perfect emulation, so most games look fantastic.

TLDR - PERFECT (for the price)

I bought a BFS reel after watching all these chinks slay with light lures on a baitcasting reel and a light/ultralight casting rod.

I bought ab abu garcia ambassedeur 1500c off of ebay for like 80 bucks. Its beat up but im a poorfag.

Im pairing it with a shakespeare micro series 5'6 light casting rod


I dont have the money to bust 200 on a shallow spool the nips sell, is there a work around? Will fishing with 6 lb braid be enough? Or it severly limit my casting distance?

This is the difference between elevation and prominance. Even though Everest is the highest peak in the world, K2 is actually the most difficult to climb. Also there are mountains in Central America that are ridiculous to climb because they're only 9000-ish feet to climb, bit they basically start at sea level so it's all prominence.

>Do they make hatchets that have two edges? >That way you could have one edge be the razor edge and the other for chopping
Yes, they do. traditional felling axes are like that, with a sharp edge for cutting down trees and a less sharp edge for limbing and splitting.

Well go ahead and try to make a stir fry with a hatchet and see how that goes for you.
>>
>>1497261
Have you ever actually held a hatchet in your hand?
Alternatively, have you ever chopped a vegetable?
Yes, a hatchet can in a big stretch barely do the fine work that a knife can, just like a knife can somewhat do the job of a hatchet until you inevitably break it. But that bare minimum of crossover doesn't make either obsolete.

Regulations for safety footwear: hard toecaps, puncture resistant plates embedded in soles.

If you are asking about /out/doors boots - simply stronger materials (full-grain leather upper, rant and solid rubber outsole) are heavy. Lighter boots are made of a mix of split leathers and fabric which don't stand to cuts and a lot of seams add weak points. Light soles are glued which is also not going to last. There are injected PU soles, which are both light and sturdy, but they are also expensive af.

Where do I start when it comes to self sufficiency?
I have a place, or my family does. It's big area which used to be a farm before it was converted into a workshop/storage before it was forgotten. It's overall a very huge area, there is a small path of forest, a small field, 2 houses, a garage one large warehouse and one large workshop. Sound like a dream place for something like this but these building are old and haven't been maintained at all and even though they are useable they do require a lot of fixing or I don't see them still standing in 10-20 years. We do try to fix them up here and there but our knowledge and time is limited.
I don't think this place is the best for growing crops either. The weather here is rarely "good", we only get warmth and sun frommid spring to summer, otherwise it's cold, wet and windy, It's windy almost all the time. It's a mere 50 meters away from the coast to everything is covered in salt and the air is very dry. Overall there is very little forest and wildlife.

If I want to start I imagine I will need a lot of money, like a lot of money. I just spent about $3,000 getting an old pick up truck for work, this is not including maintenance, insurance etc.
If I'm going to farm my own crops and such I will need lots of equipment and building material. I can't even begin to imagine how much money it would cost me to get a tractor, a ploug, a cultivator etc. And I would need a boat aswell for fishing


There is just so many things I need to consider. But for now I'm mostly curious if I should I find another place to move to and start there, a smaller place just for myself. This place or try it just seems like so much to handle at the moment

Here you go this book has 2 volumes. It teaches you everything about the food forest system.
Basically you build an ecosystem of edible and usefull plants that once established requires almost no maintenance, gives you bio food, fuell, building materials, watever you chose to plant.
You can download it from libgen.io.

i was born and raised on a farm. when my parents passed 60 a couple of years ago and they had to make a plan what to do they desided to butcher down every cow and went full on growing grain. there is no future in farming, the work and cost even to stay self sufficent goes way above the benefits. unless you go full on industrial farming there is no money to be made, only back breaking manual labour and hour after hour in a stinking farm tractor.
