So, you want to learn to pick locks eh? Well then, let’s see what we can do about that. First and foremost, I want to set the tone and goal of this post: I am not going to try and teach you how. The goal of this post is to be a resource that facilitates your learning process in the best way possible; it is to be a road map if you will. I will share tips and tricks that I have learned in my journey, but as far as laying the foundation, I will leave that to those who are far more experienced andRead More →

A common question I am sure: This is a YouTube channel and you have a Facebook page, an Instagram Page, and even a page on Minds (more about that in a later post) so what is up with this website? Quite frankly, it’s all about control. That’s right, Joe is a control freak! In seriousness, there are 2 main reasons I am setting up this site. One being, this day in age where Facebook mass deletes accounts on a whim, where YouTube arbitrarily bans people that disagree with them ideologically, and where in general censorship is often encouraged, I wanted a venue where our voices areRead More →

Sparrow’s Roulette is a random pinning guide specifically programmed for the Sparrow’s Revolver.  My thoughts on the Revolver can be read here.  Suffice it to say, the Revolver is, in my opinion, the best practice lock on the market to date.  Below you will see a key pinning guide for key pins and each cylinder.  My thinking behind this is simple.  When I consciously choose the key and driver pin setup in a practice lock, I tend to remember it, at least in part, as I practice.  That can remove some, or quite a bit, of the challenge in the lock.  However, I have found thatRead More →

What is Savage Citizen? Well, obviously it’s a website silly 😉  In seriousness, it actually IS a website but it is also a YouTube Channel.  It is me.  It is, possibly, you.  Savage Citizen is nothing more than a label I have given to a mindset; to a way of life.  The label or name “Savage Citizen” represents many things here.  The most obvious of which is it is what the Feral Woodcraft YouTube channel evolved into over several years.  For the sake of providing necessary context, I will come back to the most important, the mindset that is Savage Citizen, in a bit. For thoseRead More →

One of the major reasons this website exists is to have the ability to share content with folks who have a genuine interest in the channel and what I see as the Savage Citizen mindest but not with the general public of YouTube. These videos are generally less refined and informal with more of a focus on communication than just strict entertainment. Up top in the Navigation Header, you will see a link for Exclusive Content.Read More →

2018 brought with it many changes to life, both personal and professional. Due to laws and company policy, my current EDC will be changing quite a bit and I plan to go over how I handle these limitations. Given this, I thought this was a good place to discuss what my current EDC is to provide a bit of context to future videos.Read More →

http://www.nordsmithknives.com/the-ca… From Nordsmith Knives, built by LT Wright Knives, the Canteen Knife is a Modern take on the classic Nessmuck Knife. I am a big fan of the Nessmuk design and the Canteen Knife comes in at the best take on the Nessmuk that I’ve used. Being that it is built by LT Wright is just icing on the cake for making this knife a winner in my opinion. Specs: Designer: David C. Andersen Steel: 1/8” thick AEB-L Hardness: 57-59 HRC Handle Material: Canvas Micarta Sharpened Length: 5.5 inches Overall Length: 11 inches Weight: 9.5 ounces Sheath: 8 oz. Black Leather with firesteel loop andRead More →

The White River Firecraft FC4 is a knife designed for work, simple as that. While it’s main design focus is on Firecraft in a survival situation, it certainly doesn’t shy away from other Bushcraft and Survival Tasks. This is the first field knife I’ve used made out of S30V and thus far I am impressed. After 2 weeks of hard use, it survived without damage and the edge will still (barely) shave hair. It is a high saber grind so it is a good balance between edge strength and slicing ability. The FC4 is obviously a very well thought out design and is overall oneRead More →

This is the X-Case for the Nano stove from Firebox Stoves; it is cooking up some Boneless Pork Ribs and Roasted Cauliflower. It is a case with an optional windscreen for their Nano stoves (works with both stainless and Ti Nano’s). The case acts as a base/coal catch for the Nano when opened up and laid flat. The Built-in “X” slots work to hold the feet of the Nano securely in place as well.  Read More →
