      You know what you deserve to treat yourself for all you do.

      I hope you enjoy your new piece of cool gear because hey Tiger you Gosh darn earned it.

      Don't let anyone tell you you are not deserving of treating yourself at even twice the cost.

      Your bargain shopping is just evidence of your superior intelligence and concern for others in your life.

      Shit the kids will be able to study astronomy with it and even range the distance to the moon. It wasn't for you, you did it "for the children".

      Don't let anyone tell you you shouldn't get a new rifle to go with it.

              That is a nice hatchet looks custom made ,my father has a couple hatchets that are custom made and there really is a difference between custom and Home Depot, and I remember the lantern as a kid camping with my grandfather I would always break the cloth that burns ,geoff3

                Hults Bruk is a company in sweden that has been making iron tools since the 1600s according to their site.

                Didnt know i wanted a hatchet to replace the Stihl camp hatchet I currently have but when I held the handle in hand and felt the great balance of the forged head, it just felt like a great tool.

                Where I camp its in amongst a stand of hemlocks. Those trees are frequently infested with low spike branches that are a hazard to moving around the camp space.

                That well balanced hatchet would make quick work of the hazardous spikes while leaving a choice few to hang my lantern.

                Interesting thing I learned about mantles,,,the old school ones were radioactive thorium. In the 70s a kid used mantles and other scrounged material to make a pile that to some accounts was on the verge of going reactionary.

                The silk is just a carrier that burns away on the first light leaving a delicate lace of "metal" that glows when lit. The radioactive thorium salts used in the old mantles is reported to have worked better but supposedly moderate to heavy use of the lantern was equal to a dental xray. The people manufacturing them though got greater exposure.

              Geoff3: did you purchase the hard case direct from Ashbury? Pmclaine: the wide shade Coleman lanterns are my favorite to use. Somewhere, haven't seen it for years, I have an OD green wide shade lantern. Army used them 40s to 60s...

                Lots of mil issue lanterns and parts on Ebay.

                I thought of going that route but I was born in 1968 so I thought a lantern of the same vintage would be cool. It came with a nice sturdy plastic clam shell case for storage as well rather than the cardboard V2 box of the mil models.

                Got a little bit of a "pulsing" issue with mine right now but Im hoping some exposure to clean fuel and a new filler cap will clean away any lacquer and ensure the pressure stays up.

                If you find that Army lantern and have any interest in selling I might be tempted into another purchase.........

                I have a lantern of the same vintage (not sure of exact age).

                It eats mantles however. I put new ones on every time I fire it up, but it still works fine.

                  Ive been burning the crap out of mine to clean it out, using a mix of white gas and injector cleaner. Chased a pulsating issue that ended up being a leaking fill cap. Thing runs great now and holds pressure to burn long time without repumping.
