Survival Belt buckle

#1 Post by Hiker » Thu Nov 16, 2017 9:12 am

A knife, ferro rod, flashlight, and most importantly, a bottle opener. All in a belt buckle.

A Bic cigarette lighter is a pretty damn good combination firestarter and bottle opener. It costs $1. In a survival situation I'd rather have a Bic, a proper knife and some paracord to hold my drawers up than a plastic belt and buckle.

Now all it needs is a weather radio to jump the price to $175.

I prefer to use the first bone of my thumb as the fulcrum.

Pfft...real operators use AK magazines.

I would suggest NOT using a full mag though.

My $12 belt has a knife, my car key fob and a money holder. I'm gonna add a space for some lockpicks and a flashlight. because that's what Batman would do.

Still looks like a normal belt though...until I add the shark repellent...

When I was young and built houses for a couple of years, we used to open Coke and Pepsi bottles with the claw of a hammer. Just wrap your fist around the bottle and use your finger as the fulcrum and the claw as the lever.

I'd rather have a full money belt, a Leatherman and a Bic.

Using this same concept virtually anything will open a bottle. Spoon, keys, etc.

Yup. But nothing works better than a hammer claw. Except a bottle opener/"Church key" of course.

there are things a full money belt will do, and things it won't do.
