New to this thread, but I gotta say, if you've never used Gorilla tape, uh, do it. It's like 5 bucks a roll, and WAY better than duct tape. Sorta dumb, because it's just tape, but after using it a little bit, I was smitten. That stuff is badass. It's like a group of greasemonkeys got together and thought "dude, lets make the most badass duct tape the world has ever seen!"

Knife sharpener

Another non sequitur, but I bought this knife sharpening kit a few weeks ago:





It's outstanding! I've tried any number of knife sharpening gimmicks, including some of the electric appliances...all junk.

I was going to replace a set of old and dull Chicago Cutlery knives, but thought I'd tried this first. The knives are like new.

Note that it takes a little while to sharpen each knife.

Much as I like buying shiny new tools, I don't see the advantage of the ratchet adapter over a regular ratchet.

Please enlighten me so I can track down my Snap On guy with card in hand!

The Big 3

Ortlieb Duffle: http://www.ortliebusa.com/CartGenie/prod-62.htm keeps everything dry. No more top case.

PacSafe: http://www.pac-safe.com/www/index.ph...n=detail&id=11 secures the Ortlieb. Will hold a "Stich". Getting a second to carry 24/7 just for that purpose.

Kabar: http://www.agrussell.com/short-ka-ba...eath/p/KA1250/ mines not so pretty.

The shovel, can opener, axe, cheese slicer, tent stake and tang screwdriver model. Mine is 35 years old, as a Sparky -I had access to batteries.... got it from a Jarhead with a cassete deck fetish. Any one remember the term "Comshaw"

When it dies this is its replacement: http://www.fernknives.com/ka-bar/impact-warthog/198/

I have used this tape. It does not seem to stick to other stuff very well. Did you notice this? It DOES stick to itself like a flea on a dog...
