OR: Biggest Knife Ever

Senior Editor Shannon Davis reports from OR iwth a gigantic knife and a spent fuel canister crusher from JetBoil

Biggest Effing Knife Ever

Thank you Bear Grylls for taking a break from relaxing poolside at 5 star resorts and drinking your own urine to create a new line of knives and multitools for Gerber. In addition to a badass full tang 5-inch survival knife ($60, 14.7 oz. with sheath), we have the Parang ($45, 25 oz. with sheath). I've tested tents that weigh less, but for some reason I still want one--jungle understory will quake in my presence. Here, PR impresario Mike May demonstrates one of its lesser-known uses: shaving.

Can Crusher

Why didn't we think of this? JetBoil has a new line of stoves (stay tuned for full reviews once we get samples), but perhaps more impressive is this $5 tool. Screw it on a spent butane canister, and it will release any residual gas. Pry down to puncture the canister, then give it a good boot-stomp to crush it and, finally, throw it in the recycling bin. Done.

—Shannon Davis

Whoever posted the comment about 420 steel -- thank you! If you want a machete, go with Tramontina or Condor Tool & Knife -- they'll be cheaper & they're made in places that actually use them.

If you want a big knife, get a big knife; if you want an axe, get an axe. As far as parangs go, before you buy this one, at least compare it to the parang from Fox Knives.

Of course if you're a Walking Dead fan, you can collect the entire Gerber Apocalypse set...

I hate to say it, but that parang is made of the china equivalent of 420 stainless.

Do yourself a favor and buy a Ka-Bar/Becker BK 4 MachAx, or a BK 6 Patrol Machete, BK4 is the same size, but more useful, BK6 is twice as long, both are made of 1095, both are made in the USA. The BK 6 is no longer in production, but could be released as early as next year, while the BK4 is about ready to hit dealer shelves again.

Why didn't we think of the "Can Crusher"? Because you just empty the canister on the stove and then use a regular old fashioned can opener on the bottom. No need for producing more stuff / gear other than profitting from selling more material items. The point of recycling is reusing existing materials - why add the impact of producing a special "opener" when none is needed?

I'll stick with my Busse knives.

I have the predator machete from the movie predator starring Ahhnold and its more versatile, like if you need too take down a Rhino

I don't see the can "crusher" on Jetboil's website. Is it from another manufacturer?
