    I'm going through these things like a dose of salts. This is the second box in two weeks. Normally, I expect a box like this to last just over a month, this being roughly two pairs a day; I work on the buses her in London. With this CoVID-19 bugger in the wild, it's risen to more like four pairs per day :frantic:

    I like these ones because they're roughly twice as thick as medical examination nitrile gloves, they're textured (good for driving, you get a better grip on the wheel), and as a result they're less likely to split. I've been wearing them when I work on my car too, when I do repairs or maintenance.

    Not for any lack of trying either.

    More material for my 3D printer, power steering pump for my truck and a new GFI cord for our little hot tub.

    Of all the things to be out of stock at most of the stores in the area, lens wipes were at the top of my list the other day.

    So, Amazon to the rescue ;)

    THIS should save me running out in the immediate future :rofl:

    Seriously, if you drive for a living, and wear spectacles, rather than faff about with a lint-free cloth and cleaning solution, it takes maybe a quarter of the time to haul out a foil-lined pack, rip it open, remove the moistened wipe, and clean your glasses... say, less than the time it takes traffic lights to change, for example ;)

    Artisan Cutlery Corsair with bronze scales a Smokey Mountain Knife Works exclusive I believe. Just under 7" with about 3" blade (actual cutting surface about 2.5") D2 steel. I wanted something in bronze and the blade was so unique I thought I give it a try. At $35 I figured why not. I am surprise at how much I like the blade shape; nice point for detail cutting and good belly for slicing like a chefs knife. It also came shaving sharp out of the box.

    The other is a Artisan Proponent Mini. Yes mini. The thing is a nice hunk of copper with its big brother an even bigger hunk. I'm glad it out of stock otherwise I'd have a really cool but utterly impractical (for me) knife. I have had any hand time with this one yet.

    Thanks for the details, Smoky mountain knife works is a pretty cool place if you ever get to go in person.

    Congrats, Diezel! That ZT rocks! It'll be complete when you get the 'deep-carry' Punisher-clip on-it. Just got these new rosewood grips for my 1911:

    Decided it looked better on my Kimber Target II:

    Those are awesome. Would love to get a set up like those someday. Would love to know where you got the grips from.

    Got this from Amazon as a Biking chest bag. This is actually an impulse buy. I knew I wont likely be biking for 2 months due to this Covid and I already had a somewhat discreet 'chest rig' for the same purpose that I bought back in SM Department Store in the Philippines a couple of months ago.

    I just ordered MORE vallejo model air paints for my miniatures and model tanks.
    I also bought a back issue of Warhammer 40k Conquest magazine because it has a really nice Plague Marine Icon Bearer model included. Cheapest way of doing it. Payday in 23rd, so have some of that promised towards some model/miniatures stuff. Bought them in my head, so to speak.

    Can you share some basic info: manufacturer, model name/number, maybe some idea of size/capacity?

    Thanks

    Brand is Wynex. its kind of big actually (12w x 8h) so you will be able to put in more stuff. Quality though is Airsoft so might not be for everybody.
    Buckles are quite difficult to open.

    Also, I received this afternoon also a bunch of Grimloc carabiner and an MTAC patch panel for the chest rig.
