    another use for Dutch W-Hooks

    ...a new ( unauthorized ) use for Dutch W-Hooks .......firesteel

    strikers....i carry a firesteel every day..all the time..and i wanted a

    dedicated striker that's as small as possible...and still useable...

    the two small knives i carry don't have a sharp enough spine to strike...

    and they're SS which is not as good as carbon....


    ..the black rock hunter is a good striker, but i

    don't carry it that much ...i kno i can use the blade in an

    emergency, but it's not too healthy for it...





    i put a sharp 90 edge on the hooks...i'm not sure which one i like better..

    i think they both strike just as well as the commercial strikers...and the

    Ti-mini biner is just right for 1 1/8 in. belts....the surefire EDC hangs

    from another Ti-biner...

    Good idea. I assume you are not going to use the modified biner on your suspension.

    well...its probably a little derated....but not that much...

    multi-use only goes so far i guess...

    now, if i could only figure out how to make a bottle opener out of it...

    ya kno, the good beer doesn't twist off...

    True. I was reminded of that very fact last night.

    Though I mostly use a lighter, you can open a beer with just about any rigid item with which you can get leverage - tent stake, butt of a knife, a stick.



    There are even videos on how to open a beer with a piece of paper, a dollar bill, and of course, opening the bottle with another beer.

    Once you have mastered opening a beer with another beer, you can move onto opening a bottle of wine without a corkscrew.



    And when you have mastered that, you can then practice opening a bottle of wine without a corkscrew in front of an audience while you are inebriated.



    Those French people are quite ingenious.

    I swear I thought the guy was going to whack the bottle against the wall and shatter it.

    Does bring to mind a neat business plan, wine openers by the pair.

    Dutch hooks should work great for opening beer. Last year while hunting I used a door latch on my van, this year while dumping beer I used the latch plate on a door. Both of those methods are a little wasteful. In college I would put the edge of the crown cap against the top egde of the counter and smack the top of th cap. Much less waste. Handcuff keys work well.

    But, then again, when I homebrew I tend to keg, because I am incredibly lazy and into instant gratification.
