Kershaw Secret Agent Knife Extreme Torture Cut Test HD

From:  Cameron McKirdy

As you can see in this HD video, nobody beats up gear like me.  I took the new Kershaw Secret Agent knife to the beach, and put it through a rigorous torture test.  I sliced, and stabbed ocean debris washed ashore in Long Beach, Washington.

Flashing the tool with the protective sheath on!

 Model Number 4007, the Secret Agent isn’t flashy.  It’s functional.  The spear point blade has a black-oxide coating for protection against corrosion.  Additionally, the surface is non-reflective.  So it won’t catch light, or be easy to see.  Both sides come sharpened, making it easy to puncture nearly any material.  The Secret Agent handled rope, plastic, aluminum, fiberglass, and even a dead jellyfish!  After the beating, it was still sharp, and the tip showed little wear.  Of course, knives don’t like sand, so I plan to sharpen it for the first time, or I can send it back to the KAI warehouse to get it cleaned up for free.  I’ve stopped by Kershaw headquarters in Tualatin, Oregon (South of Portland) before for a hassle free repair, which took less than an hour.

This knife is a favorite in my collection because it’s lightweight at only 3 ounces.  The ergonomic handle is glass-filled nylon.  It’s well balanced.  Fitting securely in my palm, without being too wide.  Plus, with a rubberized, textured grip, it’s not going to slip out of my hand.  You can wear it on a lanyard, or strapped to your leg.  Blade length is perfect, and no joke at 4.4 inches long.  The black sheath is quality, with a wide, tight clip.  At under $40, the Kershaw Secret Agent knife may be the best value in the industry.  Don’t forget Kershaw Knives’ products are backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty against manufacturing defects.  Bottom line:  The Secret Agent belongs in your Every Day Carry knife rotation.  It’s Survival Bros tested and approved.  For more HD videos, SUBSCRIBE TO OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL. Thank you.

Van Dwelling Chevy Astro Setup with Items Listed on HD Video

By Cameron McKirdy

See what car living is like for a gypsy travelling on the road in HD video.  I think he has a great gear setup for van dwelling.  I’m jealous of his sink, with a clever gravity fed water system, harnessing an inexpensive solar shower.  Plus, his lighting setup works, and didn’t cost much, thanks to a trip to Dollar Tree.  You can’t tell Hugh is in there either, since it’s a cargo van without side rear windows.  The dark exterior paint color blend into the darkness, making him more stealth.  I like what he has done to insulate the metal sides with cardboard and aluminum tape.  Hugh knows the cardboard is organic material, and will eventually decompose, but it’s easy to replace with fresh insulation later.  Even the interior wall panels are stuffed with recycled shopping bags for added warmth.  We list all of the car camping items for you to spark your imagination, but is there anything you’d add to the recreational vehicle?  More van dwelling videos on the way.  Stay tuned to Survival Bros.  

Zombie Apocalypse Edition 4×4 Bug Out Vehicle for Survival

Filmed by Cameron McKirdy

 Mitsubishi Fuso FG 140 4×4 truck spotted in Seaside, Oregon!  This emergency preparedness rig has an ideal setup for extreme mobile living, and protection from undead zombies among us.  Would you car camp in this monster?  It looks comfortable, and well designed.  It may be bigger than I’d want for bugging out, and I don’t know about the color, but it’s an excellent truck platform to work from.  The Fuso just needs a snorkel if it’s going to spend the winter on the Oregon Coast.  I didn’t see a camera system installed either for extra security.

This beast looks like a completely custom job, made to be multi-purpose.  There’s few places it couldn’t go on Earth.  I’d love to hear what you have to say about this setup in the comment section, or on our YouTube channel.  I’m sure this vehicle will be on the road for a long time, baring an unforeseen marauders, or natural disasters, etc.  Please FOLLOW Cameron McKirdy Productions by entering your email!  Stay tuned for more emergency preparedness news, because you can’t know what’s around the corner.

Safeway Parking Lot Car Camping Experience in Astoria Oregon

By Cameron McKirdy

Survival Bros sleeps in a 1986 Volkswagen Vanagon GL, down by the Columbia River for free.  There’s a row of RV parking near the Safeway gas station in Astoria, OR.  It’s an ideal place for travelers to crash without having to drop big bucks on a hotel.  This location is something for car campers to consider when visiting Clatsop County.  There’s not many spots where you can camp overnight within city limits, since being homeless is a (victimless) crime.  Find out if the Army of sea lions drove me crazy from all the noise.  More van dwelling videos, and tips on our emergency preparedness blog http://www.survivalbros.com

Cliff Walk at Oregon Beach in Oswald West State Park – GoPro

Scary GoPro Black High-Definition video footage at Devil’s Cauldron from Survival Bros.  Shot with my HD Head Camera on, while walking above a rocky cliff near the Oregon Coast Trail.  This state long hiking trail follows the shore, and includes sections on paved Highway 101.  These cliffs are close to the Neahkahnie Mountain trail head.  More GoPro videos coming soon on this blog.  Exciting, I know!

Be safe outdoors.  And remember, it didn’t happen unless there’s video proof of it.  Email me at thesurvivalbros@gmail.com if you have questions, comments, or would like to share an article/something you’ve produced.  I’m always looking for EDC pictures.  So let’s see the pocket dumps, and which items you find useful daily.  Thanks.

Car Camping at Dismal Nitch Rest Area Near Astoria Oregon

By Cameron McKirdy

Survival Bros followers know I’ve been on the road all summer in my 1986 Volkswagen Vanagon GL.  It’s ran strong for months straight.  I will do a big summer review blog soon, but here’s a van update shot recently on my travels around the Pacific Northwest.  Scope out the rest area known as Dismal Nitch.  This Washington State Park is a historic location, because The Lewis and Clark Expedition ran into trouble here, and were pinned against the rocks for six grueling days.  Harsh winds, and brutal rain pounded The Corps. of Discovery along the mighty Columbia River over 200 years ago.  

My overnight stay was much more pleasurable.  I was sheltered in my VW bus, protected from the elements.  I took advantage of the facilities by dumping my trash, washing my hands and teeth, and cooking on a covered picnic table in grass.  Dismal Nitch in WA also features a trail, informative maps, plus plaques about Lewis and Clark.  As mentioned in my HD video, you can stay parked for up to 8 hours, but overnight camping, and tenting are not allowed.  So keep a low profile, and pick up after yourself.  This is an excellent destination for car campers, and travelers on a budget, or just wanting to get away from the static of the city.  

I’ve spent the night in my vehicle here maybe six times this summer, and each trip has been a positive experience, and memorable.  So it’s Survival Bros tested, and approved.  Visit, because it’s probably the only rest area you’ll ever want to take a picture at.  Snap a selfie, and post it on Facebook, because I also got great cell phone reception out there.  The view of Astoria, and the bountiful river is astonishing, and extremely relaxing.  The only cons are lots of lighting in the parking lot, possibly affecting sleepers negatively.  The road noise is also noticeable, but luckily the highway is not heavily used.  Thanks for supporting my blog!  Feel free to comment, like, and share on social networks.  Peace and love from the road less traveled.
