What do people think of the new style Frosts-Mora knives on that site? Which would you chose?

Excellent review. I fear I must order a few to replace the ziplock baggies I had in my PSK.

Those Frosts are a great choice as a light knife - not necessarily a 'tree-beater' but I think they are very often issued on survival courses in the UK

Thanks for the great review Glock-a-Roo!
Poet and I didn't even know it, natch. Well it seems my inner debate has been settled, as soon as I have a few spare dollars I'm gonna order a few. Just finished paying on DW's anneversary gift and got a fenix aaa light with what I had left over. Figured it was a better buy, seeing as how it will be an EDC item.
Me and the misses are now proud owners of a beautiful male ecletus parrot and I get to blow the next 1500 bucks on whatever I want without her being able to say a thing laugh........now if I only had 1500 bucks frown

I hear they taste like really, really good chicken but they're a little more chatty.

Well, actually it was 1450....but that included food, the cage (a 3' diameter octagon that's 6' high), and a bunch of toys. While it may seem like a damn expensive bird, and it is....its not at all bad when you consider the lifespan of the parrot, 50 to 80 YEARS! So ya see Jace, I bought her a companion for life and fufilled one of her deepest desires-to own a parrot of her own. Really, you can not put a price on that my man. Seeing her smile and bouncing around, squeeling like a fat kid in a candy store (no offence meant to my fellow fat kids, in a candy store or not) made it all worth it.
Besides, we all know of breeders who charge, and people who will buy a "pure bred" pedigree'd dog for twice that. For a 12 to 14 year median life span. The parrot, who's name is Morgan btw, is an investment well worth the money.

Most plastic containers are marked (usually on the bottom) with a number within a triangle with arrows - commonly known as a recycling symbol. These numbers (ACC resin identification coding system) were created in 1988 to facilitate recycling programs across the country. These recycling numbers can range from #1 to #7, depending on the type of plastic. The #7 recycling label is a catchall indicator for plastics made with a resin other than those in the #1 to #6 designations, or made of more than one resin. The #7 category not only includes polycarbonate, but also includes compostable plastics made of organic material.

Interesting sidenote: The plastics markered with a recycle number "6" are the same plastic as "Shrinkydinks". Look for the stiff, clear plastic like what covers store-bought cakes and roasted chickens.
