What's the /out/ equivalent of pic related?

So I've been looking for a new EDC to replace my Spyderco Tenacious and I've been interested in a combination edge with an Emerson wave opener that has a 3.75" (doesn't necessarily have to be this size) blade length. The only ones I've been able to find with that combination are actual Emersons which after doing some research aren't the greatest choice based off reviews. Any suggestions?
there's a knife general and even an edc thread. use the fucking catalog.

Spyderco makes a few models with what they call a "wave" although it's a retarded idea that just destroys your pocket.

It's not closed to Americans travelling to and from Alaska. You wouldn't exactly be able to walk to Alaska, but you could certainly walk the entire journey within the US.
Hell no, that would take days!

no, only essential travel, of which going on a vacation to the north is not. alaska more or less is canada anyway

Notebook is better for highlighting things or drawing little arrows to link scattered ideas etc. Easy to sketch stuff, write equations, whatever. You can divide a page up into todos, shopping lists, whatever works for you. An app is never going to be as versatile. One great benefit is that you can write down information dictated over the phone without having to fuck about with splitscreens.
Personally I work on a secure site and have to leave my phone in the car anyway.

Old thread kind of related thread since Nobody Goes Out Anymore

I took my ex on some kayaking trips this easter long weekend. I live on the river in an alpine part NE-VIC in Australia in a bit of a confluence where we can drop in behind my house and float ~25km downstream, or go 10-15km along different creeks up-river back home. Autumn colours but still very hot during the day

It's getting warmer for most of you now. What are you up to? What have you done or are doing? What are your plans?

I went camping for the first time by myself ever and the first time at all in 15+ years a couple weeks ago and realized I am a moron:

-couldn't get a real campfire going, I took dryer lint to burn but it went out too fast for me to get kindling and then real fuel going. I suspect everything was a bit too wet though, rain 2 days ago.

-setup my tent on just enough of an incline I couldn't lay down without sliding around, and I was too much of a pussy to move my tent around in the pitch black.

-didn't realize how to air up my sleeping pad all the way, so I might as well have been laying on the ground itself.

-sleeping bag is rated for comfort at 55F+, and at 6am it was 37F. My feet were about to freeze off, luckily I at least had long johns and socks and a light jacket with me to sleep in. But didn't take nearly enough clothes.

I was miserable all night and exhausted the next day, I got maybe 2 hours total sleep. It was fun though and I learned many things for next time, the forest night sounds didn't spook me too much, but then again I also didn't hear anything bigger than probably a racoon.

Twas a gud time

Feel free to post tobaccos (no weed allowed), pipes, collections, pics of favorite combos for going /out/, pics of what you're doing with your pipe and any questions you might have.

Want to get into smoking pipes without spending too much cash?
Get a Missouri Meerschaum Legend corncob pipe and a pouch of either Prince Albert, Carter Hall or Half and Half tobacco, available at most drugstores.
What you'll need: pipe, tobacco, lighter or matches, pipe cleaners, and either a regular old nail or a pipe tool (combination tamper, scoop, and small pick).
All of these together should run you less than $20.

Having trouble keeping your pipe lit? Fill it with less tobacco and smoke it slower than you think you need to, lightly tamping as needed when the smoke starts thinning out.
If you're still having trouble, try filling your pipe this way:

the thing i'm worried about most is that cigars have a lot of resistance to them since they're so big and packed so tight. so you have pull on them sorta hard. i assume that pipes don't offer as much resistance, and that there's a learning curve to getting the right airflow when coming from cigars.
will probably attempt my first bowl next tuesday assuming the retarded southeast gaspocalypse doesn't shut down shipping lanes.
Don't puff too hard with a pipe, you'll get tongue bite and it'll smoke too hot.
the desired amount of resistance is partly a matter of personal preference, and partly determined by the humidity, cut, and varietals of the tobacco. personally I prefer it with about as much resistance as drinking through a straw, but you may well wind up somewhere else. also it's easier to tighten up the draw on a packed pipe (just tamp a little harder) than it is to loosen it (empty the pipe and repack). don't be afraid to dump the tobacco and re-pack if it's too tight. This is obviously easier to do before you light up. with a cigar you're kind of stuck if the draw is too tight, there are tools to try to loosen a cigar up but they're kind of dicey in my experience, with a pipe if it's too tight then it's your fault - but you can also fix it.
no fucking idea. it's yet another cherry/chocolate aromatic. it's in a tin so maybe that makes people think it's better than generic bulk aromatics in a baggie.
what pipe only flavors do you enjoy?

Drowning? No.
We (mix of guides and pro expedition boaters) had to unwrap a university raft a few years ago.
Would have just left them to Learn A Lesson, but they had a 50L keg and 1/2oz on board, so we had to ensure it’s safety ha ha
We once got a client wrapped between rock n raft. That was less fun. Could probably find the maritime safety report on it if you like, it didn’t end well.

I got an old canvas backpack and I'd like to weatherproof it. Some cursory googling yields a number of waxing methods, either beeswax, paraffin or a combination of both. Some recipes also call for adding boiled linseed oil and/or turpentine. Wax is either painted onto the canvas while melted, or rubbed on once hardened. Then you apply heat with a heatgun or blowdrier to set the wax into the canvas.

Anyone have experience doing this themselves? Can you recommend a recipe? Apparently blo can make the fabric susceptible to mildew and adding pine tar can help with this? Turpentine seems optional and is added to help work the wax into the canvas, but can leave it smelling and requires a lot of time outside to evaporate. Also apparently this treatment can make the canvas quite flammable, is that a concern?

don't even bother. I tried waterproofing my M56 and other stuff like my canvas poncho, it doesn't work. Just get a cover for the backpack, or wear a poncho over yourself and your gear when its raining.

Ignore liar's who tell you otherwise. I tried all the expensive spray they advertise here. Shills, all of them.

Duluth Packs come with a giant plastic liner that can be rolled up. Its water proof short of completely submerging it underwater for a few minutes. I believe they sell liners separately.

I have their winter boots and they are solid.
A couple of things.....I just bought a lair of Oboz from REI. I tried on a oair of Irish Setter hunting boots from another place. They were super light and comfortable except they were a little lacking in the arch support. Then At REI I tried on Merrells and they were nice but the Oboz felt better. Ive never heard of them so who knows.....REI dude said most of the staff currently wears Oboz.
Pair and pair stupid phone.

Flora Identification thread, can anyone ID this tree? My dad said he thinks it's a pear tree and worth a bit of money. Also an appraisal would be nice. Thanks guys.
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
Buyer removes gets rid of all that liability
Your dad is correct, that is a pear tree. You can tell by the little white dots it has all over it’s bark. Idk what to tell you on its value. If it is a young tree anywhere from 40-100, if it is already established and bearing high quality fruit could be worth more.
It's about 10 feet tall, perfect sphere shaped vegetation abt 6 feet wide in diameter. I've never seen it produce fruit though
Could be wild, the fruit would be bitter as fuck, hard as a rock and stink to high heaven.
