    Only bad I've heard out of the gear you've shown there is about the Zippo 4-in-1 tool. From what I've seen and been told the axe handle is prone to breaking near the head. As far as I know there is no fix for or way to repair it if it does fail. With that in mind , I wouldn't stake my life on it. Just my opinion. Great video as always.

    Are you sure that the 'cord cutter' on the little axe isn't actually a gut hook?

    The zippo axe is a great tool, a really great saw. You should all have one.

    He's a great guy, and I really believe he helps guys, good advice,, but you can do better with some other tools, just buy what you need and want, try them out on a day you got nothing to do, before you bet your life on them please.

    I'd like a bowie knife. though not with a saw back.
    shiny stuff.
    Kind of wish the Zippo thingy also had some sorta fire starter in it too. THough might be able to fit it. just cause..
    zippo xD

    instead of tarp clips, if you need an attachment point simply press a pebble into the tarp and tie it off with the line you're using as a tie down so it looks like a lollipop. waaaaay stronger and smarter than trying to poke a hole and tie a knot or buying and carrying clips

    Pretty cool kit... though too many redundant items in the top end kit for me personally. If I buy the top end kit I'd prefer to see the smaller hatchet with something different, for example.

    Looks like the Zippo 4 in 1 and the Wicked saw are the only things worth the money. I will stick with scouring the internet for good stuff. Thanks for showing this to us though.

    you could just use a rock and those are usually for free.

    It must be very difficult after a while to keep coming up with new themes and new stuff to put in the boxes. After all, there's only so much gear out there. It was an interesting thing in the beginning but I think the days of the subscription box are numbered. Thanks for the look see and the demo though, always good stuff.

RIOTS and criminals everywhere...thanks a lot!

    not a fan of subscription services....
    now if they listed the various months and contents and let you choose what to order when you wanted... would be more interesting...
    not interested in committing to $100 a month (5 ounces of silver) for a surprise.
    "get what you want when you want"
    agree the wicked saw and zippo ax were great items. have had the bean throw bag for a few years and have yet to use it.

    Can you do a Fiskars axe review?

  • Jim Staton
    Jim Staton 3 years ago

    Here's my 2 cents...and that's about what my opinion is worth :) It looked like the folding saw worked better than the chain saw. The hatchet and the Zippo was too light to be useful. so basically a person could save a lot of money by not getting the battlebox and instead getting a folding saw and a good machete. I personally like the Ontario SP 53 but to each his own.

    I'm an American living in the Philippines. My problem with Battlebox is the size and the cost of shipping here. I have to be selective or end up with what happened 6 months ago. I ordered 20 industrial 50 gallon bags ended up costing me $400.00 for $30 dollars worth of bags LOL!! Ouch!

      Better to go to Thailand than here. It is not safe here at all. If you know the ins and outs of everything you can get buy. Thailand is much more modern, safer and cheaper plus Thailand has fast internet. The Philippines internet is so slow it's second to Afghanistan.

    I like that you use only dead vegetation / trees to demonstrate. It shows us that you really care for nature ... thumbs way up for that ;-)
