Oh, how I remember the good ol’ days, when enjoying two vices at one time was the way of things; in dimly lit bars, where the haze of cigarette and cigar smoke would linger like the mist of morning, where freedom was felt and health was ignored. But to say I remember is not to say I support such freedoms to be had in the face of everyone, everywhere, so I do indeed support the clean air act. Though I would never say no to a man’s desire to have a drink and a smoke, as I would totally hang out at a place designed for such an experience. However, these days, things have changed, and they continue to change at such a rapid rate that I even have trouble keeping up.
Today, I wanted to feature the awesome interchangeable blade set by Buck Knives, known as the Selector 2.0. Buck Knives is known as one of the top blade makers in the world, and having tested several of their survival, EDC and cutlery knives, I can attest to that sentiment. The blades are always crafted very strong, very sharp, with a quality of longevity that is rare in a lot of the mass marketed blade makers these days. Buck Knives understands that quality is paramount above all else, and their Selector 2.0 is a great representation of this.
Buck Knives’ Selector 2.0 is an interchangeable blade set that gives the user the ability to move fluidly between three separate blade styles, which can take your folding knife from everyday use to serrated splendor, and even to gut hook. So if you’re a camper or wilderness explorer, you can have the reliability and versatility of the general use survival blade, yet also be able to hunt, as you can quite literally carry one knife, yet be able to field dress an animal, precision cut just about anything, and you can serrate whatever comes your way.
The trials and stresses of life often wear me down and continue to wear on me, so much so that daily I find myself daydreaming of my favorite times spent in the forests near my home. Sure, it’s cold with the winter winds and morning chills, and snow threatening just north of me, but that doesn’t stop the spiritual of heart from exploring the natural splendor for the peace that comes with time spent connecting to our origins. Because letting the never-ending rat race of responsibilities overcome you will never let you find peace or happiness, but hope is not lost.
With the winter winds comes snow and another lovely holiday season is upon us. Between Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years, there is amble possibilities to bring family, friends and loved ones together, and at no time in history has it been easier than it is today. With the ever-expanding digital technologies available to each of us on our phones, computers, tablets, and now, watches, it’s easier than ever to connect… and where necessary, reconnect with family, no matter where they are in the world. Book your flight, or your train, and get the event planned in minutes, because it’s the time wasted in life that we will miss more than the time shared with our favorite people.
From Thanksgiving to Christmas and the New Year, the holidays are a special time for everyone as we connect with family and friends and loved ones, to focus on what each person is thankful for, for giving gifts and for celebrating new beginnings. This Christmas, celebrate with your most important people by sharing a peaceful, loving meal around the holiday table, as few events are as intimate, as memorable, and as powerful toward building a beautiful and lasting relationship.
With the chilling winds of winter incoming, and the snows on the horizon (or already collecting in white pearlescent splendor, depending where you are in the world), it’s about that time… What time, you say? Well, duh! It’s the most wonderful time of the year! With Thanksgiving over, and football season moving into the post-season playoffs, the holiday cheer and that familiar festive feeling is upon us! With all the wintery goodness, the sugary treats and presents abound, and with all of the love shared when we gather together, it is indeed the most wonderful time of the year. And if you’re like me and my family, you’re scouring the stores and the inter-webs for the perfect gift for each of your loved ones.
It seems as though it’s every year that I must work harder and longer to find the perfect gift for that one person who has everything, so to welcome in the 2017 holidays, I thought it would be fun to highlight and feature some of my favorite finds of the season…
