Powering up before the Apocalypse

Solar Panels

Double Sun Power!!!!!!! No, I’m not talking about the Old Spice Odor blocker… I’m talkin’ about backing up the power of the sun, sucka! If the Apocalypse does happen we may have power for the first couple of days, weeks if we’re lucky. Since no one will be working at the power plants we will have to figure out how to get energy ourselves. So what better energy source than the sun. Since that’s not going anywhere any time soon.

So I’ve decided to list a couple of Solar battery charging options for you guys. In case you wanted to listen to your iPod, recharge your Kindle, or even hook up your PS3 and play some FALLOUT 3 to make sure your Post-Apocalypse skills are top notch. ^__~

My Top 10 Survival Knives

Survival Knives

Probably the single most important tool you should have in your survival gear is a knife. And not any ordinary knife. I’m talking bout a heavy duty blade with a tang that extends into the handle. Made from high quality stainless or carbon steel. A good knife blade should have some thickness to it and not flex and should make you feel like a Bad-Ass when you’re holding it. ^__^

With a good survival knife you can cut tree limbs to start a fire, use for constructing shelter, prepare game that you have caught and most importantly defend yourself from enemies. Is probably why we’ve been using knife-like tools since the Stone age roughly 2 and a half million years or so. haha.

Kick-Ass Blades from ZombieTools.net

No matter how many bullets you try to stock up on for your guns. There will be no other weapon better than a good blade. A weapon that can defeat hordes of zombies or frenzied, starving humans desperate to kill for that last can of Spam in your pack. Because when the SH*T goes down we’re not talking about how will you survive for a couple of days but more like a couple of years and you will definitely run out of bullets by then if all you had was your trusty sidearm.

So I’d like to introduce you all to a group of zombie-apocalypse fanatics zombietools.net based out of Missoula, Montana.

Chris Lombardi: Minister of Propaganda
Maxon McCarter: Chief of Surgery
Rob Lawlor: New Wave Ninja

Clay Cooper: (military adviser)
Wes Saint John: (artist)

Their motto:

We are swordsmen and metalsmiths who create blades, and soon, other gear, that will increase your odds of surviving a zombie apocalypse.

And they are mad serious. No joke. They make some kick-ass blades and I’m going to share with you their process on how they are made.

Using American made steel and aluminum this is their basic process:

  1. We cut the basic sword shape out of bars of quality 5160 spring steel. 5160 is one of the best steels to use for longer blades like ours as it is more durable and less prone to breakage than other steels (like stainless).
  2. For some of our blade models, we will then heat and hammer the blade into shape.
  3. We grind the blade to within 20% of its final edge, and give the blade its “distal taper,” the gradual reduction of blade material from its handle to its point, which reduces weight and gives it its balance.
  4. We then heat the blade to just above 1500 degrees and quench it in oil. This hardens the blade. We then put the blades in a tempering kiln to take them back up to around 450 degrees, which tempers it, or returns flexibility to the blade. The blade is then cleaned and polished.
  5. Next, we cut our basic handle shapes from T6 aluminum, we attach the handle with steel pins, and then sculpt the handle to its final shape using grinders and files.
  6. Finally, the blade is spattered with a beeswax/tar concoction and painted with ferric chloride acid which etches a pattern into the blade.

You can order blades from them at their website zombietools.net. They give an estimated time of about 4-5 weeks to build your blade and also do custom work upon request.

Now check out some of these kick-ass pics. ^__^
