I got an email invitation to meet the official representative of Mora knives in Malaysia recently. Thinking it was a prank email, I had to double read the email address of the sender. It actually had a ‘@morakniv.se’ extension. That intrigue me a lot. So, a few weeks later, we met up over a cup of coffee.
If you are prepping in Malaysia, you need to know ways of storing water. Those who work and live in Klang Valley especially knows water disruptions and rationing all too well. The weather, particularly the rain cycle is somewhat all messed up. On top of that, we are still cutting down trees and turning important water catchment areas into development projects. The population keeps increasing, hence the demand for clean water too. So…how do you store water as a prepper?

Anak saudara Wak mula bergiat dalam aktiviti hiking, maka Wak pun bertanya kawan mana nak beli wisel (orang putih cakap whistle) di Malaysia. Terbaca kes-kes orang sesat masa kegiatan hiking ala ‘outdoor’, Wak pun risau pasal anak saudara sorang ni. Ada kawan cakap beli je yang murah-murah, ada pulak yang cakap belilah yang bagus. Alah membeli, menang memakai prinsip Wak.
Baru-baru ini, Wak sempat melawat workshop sarung pisau kydex yang dikedalikan oleh 362 Custom Kydex. Bagi Wak, Peter dari 362 Custom Kydex adalah antara tukang kydex terulung di Malaysia. Ketekunan serta komitmen beliau menghasilkan produk berasaskan kydex (sarung pistol, dompet kad, sarung pisau dll) membuatkan beliau terserlah berbanding pembuat lain. Disini, Wak kongsikan pengalaman Wak melihat Peter bekerja di workshop beliau.
Check out this The North Face Escape & Evade pack (that’s what I call it anyway). I pulled this pack out after having a chat with the folks at Malaysian custom pack maker Garrison Packs. We we talking about pack designs, copies and pack concepts. I am not for 1 to 1 copy but adopting concepts I am fine with. Here is an example of what I think would be a shared concept.
I finally received the custom made knife pouch from Garrison Packs for my old Carl Schleiper knife. Together with this knife, I would usually carry a Fallkniven DC4 sharpener. Knife was given to me some time back while the DC4 I purchased from OGM. This combination isn’t really my EDC but they have been my constant travelling companion, especially to places that would not welcome the Benchmade Triage.
I was really intrigued with the EDC kydex wallet by 362 Custom Kydex after seeing pictures as posted by Wak. I placed an order for a unit a few weeks ago when I was overseas. Upon my return, a Poslaju package was already waiting on my desk. Here are some pictures of my new EDC wallet in kydex made by 362 Custom Kydex.
Sudah lama Wak mencari kedai membaiki backpack Camelbak Hawg yang ada sedikit rosak. Memanglah banyak kedai yang boleh repair bag tapi Garrison Packs (GP) yang disyorkan si Mystrm memang arif dalam kerja membaiki, modifikasi serta kerja-kerja tempah khas bag, terutamanya untuk activity lasak dan juga kegunaan ketenteraan.
Fadzrill Omar’s District U5 EDC Gear offering of knife and titanium anodizing services has certainly stepped up the ante in the Malaysian knife and EDC gear gadget scene. Fadz’s workshop is located in Shah Alam, Selangor and shares the same roof with knife maker Fursan Blades. I recently visited their bungalow workshop for a quick tour.
Minggu lepas Wak berkesempatan melawat kedai Radiant Den, pakar lampu camping, lampu suluh LED dan batteri di Ara Damansara, Selangor. Pasangan Dannie & Diane sudah lama berkecimpung dalam perniagaan lampu suluh LED, pengecas (charger) bateri, bateri kapasiti tinggi dan juga aksesori yang berkaitan. Ini lawatan Wak kali pertama ke kedai mereka.
