Burung Hantu dari Finlandia

October 30, 2014 | Reviews | , , , , ,

Sejak lama saya menginginkan sebuah puukko, pisau tradisional dari Finlandia. Siapa sangka, seorang kawan baik –yang relatif baru saya kenal– mengirimkan sebuah puukko bersama beberapa pisau yang lain. Yang lebih mengejutkan, ternyata puukko tersebut bukanlah sembarang puukko.

kalevala marttiini puukko

Pisau sepanjang 23 sentimeter tersebut adalah hasil kolaborasi Kalevala Koru (desainer perhiasan ternama Finlandia) dengan Marttiini (pembuat pisau legendaris Finlandia) pada awal tahun 90-an.

Untuk Digunakan, Bukan Dipajang

December 27, 2011 | Gak Penting | , , , ,

Sebagai penggemar alat potong, saya paling menikmati saat-saat memanfaatkan alat potong yang saya miliki sebagaimana mestinya: untuk memotong. Selain saat memotong, hal lain yang saya sukai adalah saat membersihkan dan mengasahnya.

Mini Kukri

Seperti siang tadi, membersihkan semak-semak di depan rumah menggunakan kukri buatan Nepal, kiriman dari seorang teman yang menamakan dirinya  Hommer J. Simpson, dua tahun yang lalu.

Dispenser Batere

November 13, 2011 | Gak Penting | , ,

Selain pisau lipat, benda yang hampir tiap hari saya bawa adalah sebuah senter kecil. Karena membawa senter, saya merasa perlu membawa batere cadangan agar sewaktu-waktu batere yang ada di dalam senter habis bisa langsung diganti.

Namun menaruh beberapa baterai begitu saja di dalam kantong tas kadang agak ribet, karena bisa nyelip kemana-mana. Kadang saya bungkus jadi satu di dalam plastik, tapi kok kurang praktis, juga kurang keren.

Lalu saya lihat di sebuah forum ada yg jualan case merek Power Pax yang bisa menampung 4 batere sekaligus dan bentuknya cukup menarik. Sayangnya hanya tinggal warna army green dan oranye, seri yang glow in the dark sudah habis.

Sekarang nampaknya butuh barang baru lagi, sebuah tas kecil untuk menampung segala EDC (Every Day Carry) saya. Naksir Maxpedition tapi kok harganya agak mahal.

Opinel Garden Number 8

August 10, 2010 | Uncategorized | , , ,

I'm a fan of knives and any other sharp blades, but I prefer small knives instead of swords, machetes or bowie knives. Recently I bought a new knife, it's Opinel (garden series) number 8. Opinel is known as cheap but great knife, originally from France.

Here is the picture, but in low quality 😀

Opinel number 8 (blade length is 8 cm) is rather too big for me, I think I should have number 6 or 7. Next time I will post more pictures of this knife, with better image quality :up:

Fake Victorinox Knife

September 10, 2008 | Uncategorized | , , , ,

Since I was a young boy I always interested with knife. And one of my dream was having a Victorinox knife.

Today I was walking on a local outdoor equipment store and saw a nice Victorinox swiss army knife with fluoresence grip. The price was a little bit cheap but still expensive for me. Then I bought it without any further consideration.

Fake Victorinox

At home, I was wondering the logo stamped on the knife. It's too ugly for a victorinox knife, so I did a little research over the internet. The model number was 3.4603.808 and all search results are pointed into China's websites. Yes, I think it's a fake swiss army knife :doh:
