How to: Start a Campfire with One Match

created at: 05/07/2014

Starting a fire is an essential life skill, for sure, and most of us have our preferred technique: the lean-to, the tepee, the log cabin. But, even though most fires aren't started in emergency, or even in one-match situations, that's part of the fun. Once you've learned how to do it without turning a gas knob or lighting one of those Duralast logs, lighting a fire with one match (or spark from a starter) becomes part of the game, even if you have a whole box at your side.… read more

The History of the Pocket Knife

Most of us have a personal history of the pocket knife: that little folding multi-style you got after learning proper care in Cub Scouts, or perhaps a hand-me-down model from a relative. It went with you everywhere...well, everywhere it was appropriate for a little kid to carry a sharp object. And whether you still carry one everyday (I took nearly two decades off, but have recently moved it back into my daily carry items), there's no denying its proven utility...utility that's been appreciated for generations.

Cool Material takes a look at the complete history of the pocket knife. And by complete, I don't just mean the last few centuries of variations on a design...I'm talking millennia.… read more

Make These: Ron Swanson-Inspired Maple Bacon and "Egg" Cupcakes

Ron Swanson Cupcakes DIY

These Ron Swanson-inspired treats are an attempt to make "masculine" cupcakes. Which could end up badly, but these went far enough past the point of stereotype into humorous fun. 

This recipe combines salty bacon, sweet white chocolate, silky cream cheese, and oaky maple syrup in one delicious baked treat. Extra added points for the Ron Swanson toppers, which you can print and stick on a skewer.

If baking is not your thing, this is the perfect excuse to get your food geek friends over and make it a party. Why not? Some beers, some butter, and some cupcakes at the end? That sounds like an evening well-spent. 

For the full… read more
