Smith Journal Volume Seventeen

Volume 17 of Smith Journal is jammed with real-life MacGyvers – people who know how to solve super complicated problems in ingenious ways.

Take Cameron Smith. He wanted to be an astronaut since he was a little kid, but his bad eyesight meant he couldn’t get into NASA. Rather than give up, he took his dream into his own hands: he started building a working spacesuit in his apartment.

Jeff Sitar, the world’s greatest safecracker, is just as driven. His passion for breaking locks started when he found an old book on the subject. It had lots of pages missing, and barely made sense. That didn’t stop Jeff, though. He filled in the gaps by tinkering around at home, and became freakishly good at his craft.

Ardash Sahaghian is in the mix, too. He’s the Eastern European jeweller who invented the modern boxing belt. He first began crafting the things back in the ‘70s, after escaping from communist Romania. These days, his creations are coveted by the world’s best fighters. Talk about punching above your weight.

The mag also has yarns about ninjas, Mexico’s abandoned railways, and how to cook camping food that doesn’t suck. Plus, there’s an awesome calendar thrown in for good measure.
