United Cutlery M48 Talon Survival Spear

Spears, along with knives, axes and clubs arethe earliest tools developed by mankind and have been used in combat, hunting and fishing for ages. Up until the modern era, spears have found their place in almost every army in the world and were used either in one or both hands as melee and throwing weapons. However, these advancements have not been able to completely eradicate the interest of using modern spears in hunting or as a part of survival gear. A testament to this is the United Cutlery M48 Talon Survival Spear.

Survival Slingshot

Slingshots are no longer small hand-powered catapults which have been regular fixtures among boys from all countries, generations and cultures. Well, at least not the one that we are featuring here. This is a more grown-up version of a slingshot, made for survivalists, hunters or collectors of strange weaponry. It is called the Survival Slingshot or Archery Slingshot, and is produced by the eponymous company based in Dallas, Texas.

Let’s talk decks and balconies for a minute. They’re such a great home feature, perfect for entertaining or relaxing on the weekend, but in older houses, the wood can get nicked, the stain can wear off and the whole thing can look depressing. As long as the deck is structurally sound, you can revamp it with something better than paint: Rustoleum Restore 4x It’s four times thicker than paint and will fill in chips and cracks, making a dilapidated deck fresh enough for bare feet again. There are a bunch of colors and it really brings new life to an older space. 

One week until the first day of Spring. We’re looking forward to drinks on the deck with family and friends, fresh flowers and sunshine. 

With the warm weather on it’s way, its the perfect time to show off our latest Fave Find: Spring Haven. We love the blue cushions, but they can easily be swapped with one of 14 other colors. And since it’s not sold as a box set, it’s easy to pick the pieces that work best with your space. Two chairs on a patio? No problem. A rocker for the front porch? You got it. A giant sectional for a big family? Absolutely. You can see why we’re crushing hard on Spring Haven.
