05/13/19 03:22 PM Conversion of Al Mar SERE knife to a 'wave' knife by brandtb

The Emerson CQC7 (as well as several other Emerson models) has a 'wave' on the top of the blade which allows it to be opened as it is removed from the pocket. This is done by catching the wave on the pocket opening. Go to 2:30 in this YouTube clip -


I was web surfing yesterday and came across a company that makes a device which converts a thumb stud into a wave -


I have an Al Mar SERE 2000. To convert remove the thumb stud and insert the device into the hole and tighten. Now here's my problem. This is a very expensive knife. I guess - but don't know - that the stud simply unscrews just like a nut and bolt however I've seen examples of knives that have the stud expanded into the hole under pressure. I don't want to ruin it and irritatingly, Al Mar doesn't have any telephone number for tech questions.

Any advice?

Why Do You Grab Your Bag When Running Off a Burning Plane?

Not sure how much it would help, but perhaps the safety lecture on commercial flights could reasonably cut out the part about how to buckle a seat belt and replace it with a couple of direct statements like, "In case of an emergency evacuation, leave all overhead bins closed and leave your carry-on luggage behind."

05/03/19 01:25 PM Picacho Peak fatality by hikermor


This really sucks! Picacho Peak is a very prominent spire, highly visible just west of I-10 between Tucson and Phoenix. The trail to the top is short and steep, but non-technical and rather easy.

First rule of Arizona hiking. Be sure of your water supply and carry sufficient for your endeavor and prevailing conditions. Who, if anyone, was in charge???

04/25/19 08:43 PM California’s emergency alert system by AKSAR

California’s emergency alert system has been a disaster. A statewide fix is planned
“There’s a tendency for people in public safety to be afraid of warning. They usually see it as an opportunity to get in trouble,” Botterell said. “There is a significant political risk of being hauled in front of your county supervisors because they got a lot of angry phone calls because you interrupted the football game.”
