stinky skunk and a knife

Recommended Posts

Well................

Great day out in the hills looking for some new areas.

Got to expect the skunk if your digging around in new spots.

Really gross by about 10 with the humidity.

Found some old lead, tin and such.

And there laying right on top is a knife that someone lost.

Found dad and he said "the handle is hollow and the top screws off"

Got back to the truck and took it apart.

I was figuring it was full of nuggets :) NOT

Just a bunch of fishing hooks, sinkers, and some old matches.

Compass in the top end...made in Taiwan ..

Well what the heck ...................It was a find :)

Great day out and we had fun :)

The way I'm looking at it:

You got another free knife....

....and you didn't have to dig up those hooks and sinkers, one by one !

Cool find. Keeping it interesting when the skunk is hanging out....

Good job fellas :4chsmu1:

I agree with Luke you're on a roll when it comes to free knifes!!! :4chsmu1:

That knife is in just the right condition that you could use it to break and dig out little cracks and not be afraid of hurting it, put it to good use. :brows:

Looks just like the survival knife I had as a kid and carved up everything insight with it. You always find some kind of relic Tom, good eyes for it.

Thats better than the nothing I got yesterday, I only had one hour in Prescott yesterday to do some quick swinging, hardly hit any targets in a trib to Lynx. Weird? When I was walking back to the truck I realized I had the threshold down on the GB2, DOH!!! No wonder I didn't hear anything. I need to get out more, thank god its starting to cool down!

Yep, that sure is the o`l Rambo knife. I remember having one as a kid. and loved that thing! The items inside the one you found Tom , look like the original contents for the most part...

Then maybe you guys would know what the paperclip with two electrical grommets on it is used for? I can't figure that one out.

My Rambo knife had metal wire with a ring on each end to use as a saw.

Those weren't Skittles, they're Cyanide tablets for when the mission goes wrong. Notice Tom's knife had no tablets...

Didn't see anything like that in the knife that Tom found. The thing that I am talking about was a large paperclip that is corroded in half and has two small electrical grommets pressed on each open end. The only thing I can think of that's close would be an electrical shunt. Maybe to glow red from a battery???

:200: So you can hotwire a 6x6 and escape, of course.

I would venture to guess the paper clip was used to start fires. Completing the circuit of the batteries juice, it would get hottest at the thinnest part of the paper clip. Hot enough to start some char cloth or other fine kindling.

Therefore also the corrosion you mentioned.

That's exactly what I thought it was too, Old Tom -- an emergency fire starter..

Notice its usage prior to the now-absent cyanide tablets, AlwaysDirty..?
