The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

  2. Prob local purchaes.

    The gas sldering irons (both sizes) come with 'hot knife' heads in the initial issue.
     
  3. You can get them trough the system. I don't have the NSN, though.

    My last clothing store had a green plug in variant.

    It's just a hot knife.

    You don't need to seal webbing straps (or rope for that matter), you could just use a lighter after cutting the webbing with a sharp set of scissors.
     
  6. You must know blobmeister then.
     
  7. Can't help with the NSN, but from the descriptions the eBay number seems to be 290753700075.
