    Fire Hose Linen

    Thread Starter: Gamma

    Scored a 45' length of 3" wide hose, cut it down, cleaned it up. I'm a fan. Seems to enhance edge sharpness. Love the feel. This is a heavy dense weave hose; that colored stripe has no effect on anything but I'll probably use the other side most often.

    Speick Active AS

    Thread Starter: alexmc545

    I love the Speick scent, deodorant specifically, and I'm looking to pick up some cream and AS splash. Has anyone tried the "Active" line from Speick? I saw it listed on Fendrihan, and just wondering if the Active scent is different from the normal balsam scent. Any input would be appreciated

    What's your go to beer?

    Thread Starter: billobob

    Sometimes in my demographic (late 20s) I feel I'm of the rare opinion that I prefer to have a few standbys instead of trying a new beer every week.

I have come across some belt leather that I can get in a 2 1/2in width and is just plain ole' cowhide. Do y'all think that this would...
