Thats a great one simply because its usefulness isnt restricted to a shtf scenario but also one in which you just dont want the bad guy stealing your sh*t or trying to kill you.

For anyone that hasnt done this already, do it! Its not expensive by any means either.

I know several people thag have done this with some specialty titanium alloy of some sort.
