This ‘Fast Food’ Knife Is Forged In Beer And Bacon Because Why Not
If you aren’t already familiar with Green Beetle, you’re in for a treat. While the Tulsa, Arizona-based hunting and sporting goods store offers up a fine selection of outdoor equipment, the real appeal of Green Beetle comes from its YouTube channel, where 125,000 subscribers eagerly await mind-blowing, knife-making tutorials, uploaded every few weeks, that “explore the science and art of bladesmithing.”
Yeah, crafting durable, functional blades from scalpels and birdshot is mighty cool, but nothing screams chest-beating, fist-pumping manliness like forging a knife in beer and bacon.
They call it the “Fast Food” knife:
The steel blade, made from wrought iron, carburized with Tums (you know, for the heartburn) and forge-welded together, is just the tip of this delicious spear. The red-hot blade, shaped by fire and hammer, is quenched in a pitcher of beer and affixed with a bacon handle coated in resin. (The handle maybe isn’t the sturdiest compared to, say, a fine mahogany, but it’s definitely tastier.)

This “Fast Food” knife probably won’t cut like a butcher’s blade, but it’s definitely good enough for all your kitchen work. Just don’t forget what you’re supposed to be cooking.

If you're in the market for a bunker in the southwest, you're in luck. A decommissioned missile complex is now on sale outside of Tucson for nearly $400,000. The complex was home to an armed Titan II missile for 24 years, before it was decommissioned in the 1980s.
The structure is listed with Grant Hampton at Realty Executives. Now, the home is back on the market, and these photos show what lies underground in Arizona.
The Marine Corps will investigate whether another Marine has ties to a white supremacist group after he allegedly made racist comments on neo Nazi message boards that have since been taken down, according to a Marine Corps official.
Vice News reporters Tess Owen and Tim Hume first reported on Nov. 8 that at least three people who posted on the new defunct Iron March message boards were service members, but their story did not include any of the troops' names.
Newsweek reporters James LaPorta and Asher Stockler were able to independently confirm the identity of one of those service members as an active-duty Marine: Lance Corporal Liam J. Collins, an 0311 Rifleman assigned to 1st Battalion, 2nd Marines at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump said on Tuesday the United States knows the location of the third in command to Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who killed himself last month during a U.S.-led raid.
"We have our eye on his third," Trump said during the question-and-answer session following a speech at the Economic Club of New York. "His third has got a lot of problems because we know where he is too."
