Ganzo G720 Tactical Folding Knife

This is my second folding knife review, again this is an imported knife from China. While I don’t really like most things that are imported from China, the two knives I’ve reviewed have been pretty good quality for the price tag. Now it’s not a USMC Ka-Bar or anything, but really – for under 15 bucks it’s hard to beat if you’re prepping on a budget, which most of us are.

Comparing Portable Solar Chargers for Prepping

It’s always good to have an alternative way to charge your portable 5v devices on the go. Having a means to recharge batteries, lights, emergency radios and walkie talkies is very important in a grid down situation when there’s no power.
