The Thirteenth Hour Podcast #340: First Blood and Rambo Survival Knives with Joe and Adam Part 1
Today, I’m joined by my friends Joseph Esch and Adam Crohn to talk about the first Rambo movie, First Blood (1982) and some 80s survival knife back-of-the-magazine ad goodness.
This ad comes from a 1985 issue of Black Belt magazine.
Here’s the knife in the ad. It’s different from the one Rambo uses in the film, of course, but has the same mostly hollow handle to hold a variety of survival bits, like fishing hooks, line, matches (which are clearly vintage – I found my knife on eBay).
Last year (when we first floated he idea of doing this pod!), Joe sent me a modern equivalent from Harbor Freight Tools. It’s a bit bigger than the original, and the compass is protectively nested on the inside of the handle, not the outside, which I thought was a good change.
Look for more details on the Patreon as well as next week with part 2!
In the meantime, check out more Adam and Joe on our first joint collaboration on The Lost Boys parts 1 and 2 as well as on Adam’s show, I Have Spoken: A Star Wars Podcast, episodes 14 and 15 talking about The Book of Boba Fett and Star Wars toys!
