Spearing of course.

Would this fit a spear fishing pole?

Guns aren't inherently illegal to purchase, and are vetted even online, no? As someone with zero skin in the game, just seems odd. No way there's enough gun deals to warrant a megathread like Dollarama lol.
Because there were too few reactions like yours, and too many that were either "upvote every gun deal and post about how guns are the best and FREEDOM" or "downvote every gun deal and post about how every gun is just waiting to kill a kid". People can't stick to the deal when it's two different competing cellphone OSes, what's the chance they're going to do it when it's about something with actual political controversy attached to it.

Just buy a proper hunting knife.
or buy this instead of a knife and have the spear option. For example your sweeping the floor and you turn around and out of the blue....an angry boar. Well twist off that straw and get ready for a whole hog barbecue.

"When" is easy to answer: Just look at the first post here and you will see that's when Mods started that thread..

"Why" however, is difficult to explain in politically correct language. To paraphrase one of the Mods in the PM to me when I complained pretty loudly about that [deleted, of course] "they were getting way too much complaints and reports in every single of these threads" to keep it going.

In other words, actually, and based on the experience any one of us has in any politically coloured thread around here, course of action and standing orders are obviously to prevent snowflakes from melting at any cost... Pathetic, really. That is why this site was downgraded from my favorite site and landing page to "let's see if there are some deals, maybe" few times a week...

Looking for the new deal site without so obvious and offensive bias...

I know this post is going to be deleted in no time as usually, but this needs to be said.

For people wondering why you would need this, it is used for survival. You can tie this to a nice straight branch and be able to feed yourself in the wilderness.

Or you can screw it onto this

So this is serious question(s)...survival against what? For what situation?
I mean if you are hunting with gun, you have gun. If you are hunting with bow, you have bow. If you are camping, you have bear spray.
I cannot imagine a spear fit in.

What do you have when a swordfish attacks you when you're looking for treasure?

I rest my case

No gun license, neither archery nor sword skills?
Forming a hoplite battalion?
Self defense at night in your house depending on its layout?
Instant conversion of a walking stick if required?
